Parents, you are the key

PRACTISE what you preach.

This is the advice Twinkle Stars Preschool and Daycare Service director Aron Jivaratnam is giving to parents as schools around Fiji mark Drug Awareness Week.

The preschool and daycare centre at Rewa St yesterday marked the awareness week with a visit from a police and National Substance Abuse Advisory Council representative.

The students, aged between two and six, were shown the different types of drugs and their harmful effects to one's health.

"The onus is on the parents to set the example," Mr Jivaratnam said.

"The teachers teach their students and the students do listen but the parents' example goes a long way too. They need to practise what they preach."

He said the students learnt a lot from professionals who visited their school to raise awareness about relevant issues.

"The students always learn a lot from these professionals because of the authority that they have."
