7A Drug Prevention Program
The GSFT and the Anti Drug Authority of South Africa are partnering to design and implement a program for the parents and children of the GSFT
The program provides information about drugs, alcohol, smoking and their effects. Children will also learn about the risks of using these substances. Life skills will be introduced such as problem solving, learning to say “no”, peer group pressure and decision -making.
The main goal of the program is to develop personal and social responsibility. Participation in sports provides a setting where these skills are reinforced and transferred to other areas in life.
In order to effect long term changes, we must teach our children healthy habits at an early age: fitness, nutrition and love of sport. These will all contribute to creating a generation of healthy, well-rounded children who have been given the opportunity to grow up into decent, healthy, independent adults.
