The Life Education Caravan

When the bell rung Room 21 entered the Life Caravan. Our teacher Lynne was teaching us about what harmful drugs are in illegal substances like alcohol, drugs and cigarettes. We were there to learn and think about making good choices. She was teaching how drugs can affect the brain. If it’s not fully developed  the brain will shut down.

As we listened, Lynne talked about what good choices we should make in our lives.
She was explaining how many chemicals are in different beverages like wine, spirits, beer and alcohol. Our tutor was instructing us about what we think is really dangerous. Lynne said if we smoke our lungs will get blocked by harmful substances (like tar) so there would be no oxygen (air) circulating the body.

Lynne showed what damage drugs could do to body parts on a chart. I felt really disgusted looking at the examples. I felt like I was going to vomit. The first body part I looked at was the arms. They looked really pale like no blood was pumping through the arm. Some of the toes looked like they had shrunk. Some parts of the body looked rotten.

Then she showed us celebrities saying what is good for our bodies and which is not.
Like Piri Weepu. Then Lynne showed us a video of a women that is smoking when
there is something going wrong. When i saw her ,her jaw looked dislocated.

I felt really happy when Lynne told us that we are all unique.
