Belmont pupils learn of drug danger
SCHOOL pupils have been learning about the dangers of driving while under the influence of drink or drugs.
Year ten students at Belmont Community School, in Belmont, Durham, watched a play focusing on the theme by acting group Tiny Giants.
One student, Stephen Bradley said: “It has shown me how bad drink driving is and how it can change people’s lives.”
Another, Declan Greenwood said: “It gave us knowledge about road safety but importantly how stupid ideas which seem okay at the time can lead to devastating consequences.”
A school spokeswoman said: “The play delivered a strong message with a powerful punch.”
