Responding to drugs and alcohol

It’s important for parents and schools to have consistent messages about drugs and alcohol and to work together if an issue arises.

The department does not tolerate illicit and unsanctioned drug use in schools and applies a harm minimisation approach to the management of suspected drug-related incidents.
