1. Abuse of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs will not be tolerated at the College.2. The purpose of this policy is to ensure that all staff and students abide by the rules of the College regarding substance abuse. It applies to all staff members and students of the College.
1. The possession or use of drugs is considered to be a major offence in the College and students who bring drugs to the College or to College excursions (whether they are tobacco, alcohol or illegal drugs) should expect to be punished severely. In most cases, students doing so should expect to be suspended or even expelled from the College. Expulsion will be especially likely in the case of a student introducing illegal drugs into the College or distributing them to others.2. Discussion of drugs: Students also need to realise that any discussions among students regarding drugs, their use and availability need to be conducted in a proper and responsible manner. Students who talk about these matters in an inappropriate way should also expect to be disciplined. As Christian teachers we need to be realistic about the temptations which young people face in this area. We need to take seriously our responsibility to discuss drug and alcohol issues regularly so that our students are properly informed and prepared to take a strong Christian stance when faced with temptation.3. Printed materials regarding drugs: Some of the printed material available to our young people regarding drug usage is quite incorrect and irresponsible and as teachers we need to be aware of the hidden agendas of some groups that attempt to promote the ‘safe use of drugs’ or to minimise the physical and mental dangers.
