FGS/BGS TaskForce AWaRE
Both Brighton Grammar and Firbank are Lead Respectful Relationships Schools. The core focus on all our combined activities is to ensure students extend their knowledge of the foundations of respectful relationships and put them into practice.
Today Year 9 students from both schools participated in the TaskForce AWaRE (Alcohol: Wellbeing and Risk Education) Program where they learnt about the short and long term physical and mental harm associated with alcohol consumption. The students came away from the presentation equipped with a greater understanding of the impacts of alcohol, as well as practical strategies to manage peer pressure and minimise harm. Following the presentation, the BGS/FGS prefects ran fun and engaging activities designed to have the students thinking and moving together, whilst strengthening their connections and relationships with each other.
