DepEd Promotes Anti-Drug Campaign


MANILA, Philippines -- To make students aware of the dangers posed by drug abuse, the Department of Education (DepEd) has enjoined all public and private elementary and secondary schools to observe the Drug Abuse Prevention and Control Week by organizing educational and social activities to mark the occasion.

Through DepEd Memorandum No. 252 series of 2011, released to all bureau and regional directors, directors of services, centers and heads of units, schools division/city superintendents and heads of public and private elementary and secondary schools, Education Secretary Armin Luistro suggested activities "to further strengthen the students' resolve to do their share in the fight against this menace."

Luistro said the activity is pursuant to Presidential Proclamation No. 124 dated Nov. 26, 2001. For this year, the Drug Abuse Prevention and Control Week will be observed from Nov. 13 to 19 with the theme "Global Action for Healthy Communities Without Drugs."

The preliminary activities suggested in line with the commemoration include putting up bulletin board displays depicting the theme in strategic places in the schools and in the communities; radio broadcasts announcing the Drug Abuse Prevention and Control Week celebration and coordination with municipal and barangay officials, Parents-Teachers Associations (PTAs) and non-government organizations (NGOs) related to the week's activities

During the week, DepEd also suggested to schools to conduct ecumenical activities to mark the beginning of the week.
