Parents stop blaming every one else but your kids they are old enough to know better and say NO.

Seriously the parents are blaming the school because their kids are taking illegal drugs. How about this for an idea parents. Be parents and take responsibility for your own kids. I know that might seem an old fashioned idea.

It’s been going on for years at this particular school. This school has done absolutely nothing about the drug use on school premises within school hours. ADHD meds are the least of their problems.

Really this has nothing to do with what school it is. It’s just the same all over Sydney. The ridiculous soft stance on drugs of any kind in society today had led to this. We will continue to lose kids no matter where they go to school and for this I am sad.

Drugs are a huge problem in all schools. Bring in sniffer dogs and random bag checks! The only people that would object to this are the ones that have something to hide.

Educate your children not to take medication that isn’t prescribed for them.
