Tuesday 19th March 2013

Please be reminded that Sonja Nicholson from Narcotics Anonymous is talking tonight at 6pm in the hall on Drug Addiction.

Some of the topics she will be covering are :

– Are Drugs readily available in Harare and, if so, what are they ?
– Basically, what drugs do to the body.
– What are the tell tale signs of someone using drugs ?

The talk will be finished by 7pm and if there is time, questions will be taken. All are welcome – parents, students and staff.
