In this edition of SchoolTV - DRUG & ALCOHOL USE
Many parents are concerned about the use of alcohol, as well as other drugs, as their children grow up. For kids, a one time or infrequent use of alcohol or drugs can unfortunately result in tragedy such as unintentional injuries, homicide or even suicide. Young people who use alcohol and drugs before their brain is fully developed, are often at greater risk of future addiction.
Research has shown that a young person’s brain keeps developing until they are in their mid-twenties, making alcohol more harmful than previously thought. Even the casual use of certain drugs can cause severe health problems, such as an overdose or brain damage. Parents will often feel overwhelmed when having to deal with substance abuse issues. However, they are encouraged to lead by example and set behavioural boundaries for their kids.
In this edition of SchoolTV parents will learn how to deal with the issues surrounding drug and alcohol use and the impact it can have on a child’s development. Alcohol and drug use can lead to serious problems such as poor academic performance, loss of friends, behavioural issues and even lasting legal problems.
We hope you take time to reflect on the information offered in this edition of SchoolTV and we always welcome your feedback. If you have any concerns about your child, please contact the school counsellor for further information or seek medical or professional help.

CDFpay is a secure, safe and efficient method for ordering and paying for items through school.
Due to COVID limiting our events there hasn't been a lot of use of CDFpay over the last 2 years. As activities begin again we will again be using CDFpay. Many parents who have been at the school for a few years will already have a CDFpay account. If you have forgotten your password use the forgotten password feature to reset your password.
Below you will find instructions for setting up your CDFpay account both if you are an existing parent "already have a CDF pay account" or a new parent.
