Spotlight on vaping
A conversation to have with your child
As a community we educate our tamariki to make healthy choices and encourage them to think critically when making decisions, however, we are becoming increasingly concerned about the increase in vaping by youth in our area.
We take the health and safety of our students seriously. Any student who chooses to bring vaping paraphernalia to school, or uses a vape at school will be stood down for gross misconduct; it is harmful, and sets a dangerous example to other FCI students.
Please support us by having a conversation with your child about the serious health risks from vaping, and discuss strategies to deal with peer pressure. You may wish to use the attached quizzes during your conversation:
