Good afternoon from TRHS:

Our grade 9s are beginning their substance abuse unit in the Personal Development & Career Planning curriculum.  Tomorrow they will take part in a presentation from our school Addictions Counsellor.

As part of this unit, the classes will also be shown "Through a Blue Lens", a documentary from the National Film Board that follows policemen on their beat documenting drug abuse in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside. In this documentary, drug addicts talk openly about how they got to the streets and send a powerful message of caution to others about the dangers of drug abuse. 

Due to the nature of the topic, the film will depict real life situations that students may find difficult. We encourage you to discuss this with your child and contact their teacher with any questions. 

Here is the link to the documentary:  https://www.nfb.ca/film/through_a_blue_lens/
