To expose the kids to a variety of positive activities designed to give importance to leading a healthy lifestyle, the Dangerous Drugs Board (DDB), in cooperation with the Department of Education Region IV-A conducted a Campus Tour for Kids in two provinces of the CALABARZON Region.
Some 126 students from Julian Felipe Elementary School and Cavite National High School participated in the said campus tour. They are welcomed by Dr. Roberto D. Doñez, School Principal who expressed his gratitude to DDB for making the said tour possible. “This kind of activity will help you to stay away from the dangers of illegal drugs,” Mr. Doñez stated.
“I want to remind you the importance of being aware of the evils of dangerous drugs. I highly encourage you to stay away from drugs and focus on your studies so that all of your dreams will come to a success,” delivered by Dr. Rosemarie D. Torres, Division Superintendent, District V, Cavite City on his message.
Ms. Liane Angelica M. Kalacas, Information Officer I, Preventive Education, Training and Information Section of the DDB discussed the “8 Different Ways to Say NO to Drugs”. For a better understanding of the topic, she asked the students to make a role play of different scenarios on how to say no to drugs.
Students from Laguna also took part in the Campus tour for Kids which was held last August 19, 2015 at Rosario Complex Elementary School, Brgy. San Vicente, San Pedro, Laguna. A total of 119 elementary students were educated on the 8 ways on how to say “No to Drugs”.
The program started with a Welcome remarks from Mrs. Eleonor Closa, Master Teacher II, Rosario Complex Elementary School. She reminded the students to focus their attention to every lecture and actively participate in the discussions.
Ms. Kalacas, on the other hand, discussed the different ways on how to say “No to Drugs”. She even gave prizes to those students who answered the questions correctly.
The “Campus Tour for Kids” will continue its visit to students all over the country to educate them on the healthy drug-free lifestyle.
