SADD Week at CHS

Activities during SADD Week at CHS (September 10-16) included a visit from Waikato Police.

Students at Cambridge High School enjoyed a visit from Waikato Police during SADD Week, visiting the school with their “booze bus” and offering activities teaching the dangers of drink and drug driving.

One activity involved wearing special goggles to simulate the impact of alcohol or drugs in the system, showing how judgment and responses are impaired as they struggled to throw or catch a ball accurately.

The school’s Student Health and Wellbeing committee organised events and activities throughout SADD Week (Students Against Dangerous Driving) held September 10-16.
