In our school no student uses addictive drugs. Actions against addiction starts before the students come to school. For that reason, there is a teacher in each school bus. Students are controlled time to time and students are supervised by security staff andteachers.
Anyone who visits the school is controlled at the entrance of the school and they are also supervised by the security staff. Until July 19th, 2009 smoking was forbidden within the school only for thestudents.

Starting from that date, smoking is forbidden throughout the campus (including open area). Seminars about the harmful effects of smoking is given to students time to time by different groups ofpeople.
