Important – Dangerous substance misuse
A number of pupils have been taken ill due to the inhaling of a dangerous substance that appears to be in circulation in our community. The substance in question has been added in an E-cigarette. The risks of taking such substances are obvious and potentially very serious.
We have today met with the entire cohort concerned to reiterate how dangerous, unacceptable and potentially life changing such behaviours are. By way of context, we have had to call three ambulances that could otherwise have been responding to genuine medical emergencies and accidents.
We would call upon everyone in our community to be vigilant and work together to help us track down how this dangerous substance is being distributed to children. Parents and carers are asked to make it clear to their children that the consumption of such substances is harmful. We are working with the Police to track down those responsible. If you have any information that might help us stop the distribution of such a dangerous substance, please contact Mr Casey at school.
