Yes Choices for Life is back for 2013 on Wednesday 22nd May!

The broadcast is aimed at all P7 pupils and teachers in Scotland and will have a focus around the risks and dangers of alcohol, negative peer pressure, substance misuse, aspirations and making positive healthy lifestyle choices.

Following a similar lively format to our event in November 2012, the show will consist of drama, interviews and features with positive role models and a live panel discussion with experts to whom you can submit questions to. Our presenters Mark Martin and Laura Marks will also be back with us. You can also expect a couple of surprises!

To get the most out of our live event we are asking teachers to watch our drama Sophie’s Story with their class prior to the event. Sophie’s Story follows Sophie on a night out to a party where she decides to drink alcohol. The drama focuses on the choices that she made and subsequent regrets and consequences. You can find the video of Sophie’s Story on the Choices for Life website – Sophie’s Story. There are also teaching resources available on the website to help you have a classroom discussion about Sophie’s Story or do some further activities around the drama – Sophie’ Story Resources

If any issues arise as a result of watching the drama there are many places you can go to for further information. See our Help Page for some useful links to other websites or you can go directly from here:
Alcohol Focus Scotland and Drink Smarter

We’ll have our panel of experts available on the day to answer any questions you or your class may have about alcohol or any other topic highlighted. You’ll be able to submit them live through Glow on the day but you can also submit questions now on our Glow forum.

The event will be delivered twice on the same day to allow as many pupils as possible to view the broadcast.
