Programmes for primary schools aim to inhibit the development of addiction and/or experimentation with drugs, alcohol or gambling. These programmes help children to develop social and personality skills, provide basis for decision making, refusal skills and the ability to analyse media messages and their effect on their lifestyle.
Programmes are delivered by Sedqa facilitators and school teachers, as well as by Executives who coordinate and deliver the appropriate interventions. The Agency provides age-appropriate resources to be used during these programmes and educational talks and resources for parents. Sedqa also provides training seminars for professionals within the education system, who are willing to use Sedqa resources. The list below includes details of the prevention programmes that the Agency delivers in primary schools.
