“We’ve been fortunate to get funding from our Parents Association to bring Drugs 101, Social Media 101 and Sex 101 to Firbank and, to be honest, I can’t think of a better use of the Association’s money. It cements the fact that we are raising our children together – parents and the school. We have received nothing but positive feedback from our parents and the benefits for our students are knowing that their parents are learning about issues that matter.”

“The Social Media 101 parent guide is a valuable resource for our parents. We now live in a society that is rich with information where we can find everything we need to know online. However, parents often face the dilemma of filtering through information and having to work hard to find reliable sources. Social Media 101 is a well-balanced, easy-to-read, carefully-collected guide that has provided information and support to many of our families.”

Pitsa Binnion, Principal, McKinnon Secondary College


“I have an open, honest relationship with my three girls and – I guess naively – the threat of drugs and alcohol is not something I have ever particularly feared. Drugs 101 has set me straight, however. Something that resonated most was the fact that a young person’s frontal lobe is not fully developed until they are 27. As Odyssey House counselor Rene de Sant’Anna is quoted saying, we need to be our child’s frontal lobe.”

“I hope more schools follow Strathcona’s lead and plan community discussions for educators, families and students using this invaluable new resource. Congratulations Eileen Berry on an impressive achievement.”

“As a parent of four teenage children, drugs and their effects on our community is one of our biggest fears. Drugs 101 is a valuable resource that will help educate parents with children of all ages. It was easy to read and very informative.”
Stephanie Kelly

“Thanks to Drugs 101 for providing real information about real real issues in our everyday real lives.”
Minnie (McKinnon parent)

“Drugs 101 is an important resource for parents, supporting them to have honest and open conversations with their children about drug use and providing useful advice about the warning signs.”
Carol Kelly (Executive Director – Wellbeing, Health and Engagement Division, Department of Education & Training)
