Students D.A.R.E. to say no

By Robin Dudgeon, Portage Daily Graphic

Students at both Yellowquill and North Memorial Schools held D.A.R.E. graduations Wednesday, where they were able to celebrate their new knowledge with family and peers.

Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E.) is a program hosted by the RCMP which is taught to grade 6 students. This year Const. Shannon Neff taught three sections at Yellowquill School, North Memorial School, and Oakville School, which teaches kids how to respond to peer pressure, the effects of drugs and alcohol, and how to talk with family and friends about drugs and alcohol.

Two Yellowquill students Randi Roy and Faith Beuhler were able to read their D.A.R.E. essays to the assembled group of students, staff, and family.
