More than 100 school operators and principals participated in the first course to create awareness on the menace of drug abuse, which was organised recently by the Permanent Committee for Drugs and Alcohols Affairs. The two-day course, held at the Capital Security Department, was part of the fifth phase of the national project for spreading awareness about the dangers of drug abuse. Brigadier Mohamed Mubarak Al Khulaifi, Director of the Drugs Prevention Department, said, “Educational institutions hold as much responsibility as families, especially since school students are targeted by drug promoters. The course will help them in raising awareness among schoolchildren about the hazards of drugs.”
