Sydenham SAPS on Tuesday, visited Reservoir Hills Secondary to give much-needed talks on substance abuse and the consequences of having a criminal record.
School principal, Ricky Pillay, said the partnership with the police and the Social Welfare Department comes after rumours from the community that the school is infested with drugs.
“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.
