Smokefree at Schools
A smokefree school involves the whole school community. When parents, whānau and staff are working together with a shared understanding of what keeps young people smokefree, it increases young people’s chance of remaining smokefree for life.
The "Our Smokefree School/He Kura Auahi Kore: A Practical Guide to Being a Smokefree Community" is designed to support schools to embrace the smokefree kaupapa. The resource will help you to gather information so that you can understand the issue your community faces and plan an ongoing smokefree initiative that will meet your school’s particular needs.
