A new tradition was started by the Anti-Drug forum to host a High tea every month by our various SMART Clubs! The aim of this monthly event was to showcase the talents of our SMART Clubs learners in addition to raising funds! Sam Pillay Director of the Anti-Drug Forum said "The ADF believes that opportunities be created for youth to get excited about. They have fun while learning about the social ills of society. We are preparing our leaders of tomorrow.
Montarena Secondary SMART Club was the first high school to take on this project since its inception. They blew the crowd away with breath taking performances from the SMART Club learners including song and dance items and a play depicting the Cinderella story by the SMART Club and Drama students. When asked how the Anti-Drug forum impacted their lives SMART Club learner Jadeen Pillay said “it has made me more confident, it has made me understand what drugs are and what it does to our community. It basically ruins lives, and people can have fun without drugs, they just need to have the right company or right friends that have had a positive impact on their lives” Nicolas, another SMART Club learner added by saying “ Drugs should not be done at all!
The ADF Would like to congratulate Montarena’s Facilitator Rinelle Mudray, SMART Club Educator Mrs HP Pillay and the SMART Club learners and participants for putting together and hosting a wonderful event! It is heart-warming to see such lovely future leaders in our youth and we look forward to seeing more. In addition to the Monthly High Tea’s the ADF will be hosting their annual Dinner and Dance Friday 12th September 2014, at the Kharwastan Civic Hall.
