The SAY project is a Police initiative which encourages all WA high schools to become actively involved in community issues involving drug and substance abuse.
Students make a short movie to highlight the effects of substance abuse on our society. These films are then posted on to You Tube to spread their message. This year the theme was the connection between alcohol abuse and family violence. The quality of the films was incredible with such powerful messages.
The program has been in operation for the last 4 years and Lions have been proud to be a partner with the WA Police in the Project. Lions through our WA Lions Drug Education Foundation – WALDEF, have again sponsored the prize money for the winning films.
The award Ceremony was attended by Police, Lions, Teachers, Students and Parents. Speeches were delivered by, Hon Lisa Harvey MLA , Deputy Premier and Minister for Police, Commissioner of Police Karl O’Callaghan, DG Terry Collinson and Colin Petti, Commissioner for Children and Young People. DG Michael Wolf presented awards and prizes to the winning teams.
This is a great initiative and opportunity for Lions to be involved. Clubs are asked to continue to support the program next year and assist WALDEF to raise the required funds.
