“We then decided to have a pro-active exercise with pupils and educate them on substance abuse,” said Pillay.

Pillay added that the talk was successful as pupils were educated on information they did not know.

“Police touched on issues that pupils were not aware of and they were informed that they should always know what is happening around them,” said Pillay. The 625 pupils were happy with the information given to them.
