Elizabeth Grove Primary has a strong connection with the Sammy D Foundation and we will be continuing to foster this relationship again this year.
In 2008, Adelaide teenager Sam Davis fell victim of a violent and unprovoked one-punch assault that cost him his life. Sam’s death is part of an alarming trend in our society around alcohol and drug fuelled violence. The Foundation was founded with the ultimate aim of preventing such a tragedy from ever happening again.
Through education and awareness programs on drug and alcohol related youth violence, the Sammy D Foundation offers advice and support to people of all ages, equipping them with knowledge needed to keep safe whilst still enjoying their life journey.
The clinic will be held on Friday the 10th of March (Week 6). Our 6/7’s from Room 1, 12 & 13 will be involved in the experience this year.
The format is as follows:
9:30am-10:15am – Impact Presentation (Neil – who is Sam’s Dad is Speaking – this is amazing to hear)
10:15am-10:30am – Students participate in their first activity (Bullying Prevention)
10:30am-10:45am – Students rotate to second activity (Leadership Clinic)
10:45am – 11:00am – Students rotate to third activity (Leadership Clinic)
This is a powerful workshop and a great opportunity for our students to think about their lives and the choices they CAN make.
