CENTRAL Province (CIP) citizens have commended the Royal Solomon Islands Police Force (RSIPF) at Tulagi for conducting awareness talk on illegal brewery (kwaso) and marijuana for students.
The awareness talk according to Solomon Business Magazine (SBM) online was conducted at McMahon Community High School last week following a request from the school.
CIP’s Provincial Police Commander (PPC) Superintendent Patricia Leta said that they were very happy to respond to the request.
“We believe it is important that our youth are given the information about the effects of drugs such as kwaso and marijuana. Our youth are exposed to these substances so they must know the effects of these things on their mental and physical health. They must learn to say no to these substances,” said PPC Superintendent Leta on SBM online.
A Senior Secondary School Teacher at McMahon was quoted thanking the PPC and her officers for taking the time to visit their school and talk about the important issues for their students as it is part of the learning process for them.
Recently, it is understood that a student of the school was arrested by police after being found in possession of a drug (Marijuana).
With the recent report having being very serious going out national forced the Deputy Premier and Provincial Minister of Education for CIP Hon Selwyn Luga to Chair a Forum recently at the school.
