PHILIPSBURG –The Ministry of Education, Culture, Youth and Sport Student Support Services Division (SSSD) is organising an interactive and informative workshop called “Modern Drugs and the Influence of Music.” The department calls on parents of primary and secondary school-going children to attend the workshop.
Parents, school personnel and other interested persons are also encouraged to come out to this workshop which will be held at University of St. Martin on Wednesday, June 27, from 7:00pm to 9:00pm.
The objective of the workshop is to help all attendees understand the evolution of drugs to attract youth, how the music industry and popular songs glamorise and encourage drug use, and what they can do about it.
