Preventive Drug Education Activities & Events
Apart from school-based and community-based programmes, the Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) organises activities and events at a national level to raise awareness of the dangers of drug abuse.
Anti-Drug Abuse Day
Held on 26 June every year
to coincide with the United Nation’s International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking. Small souvenirs with the anti-drug abuse ribbon and anti-drug messages are distributed to students and the public.
Activities are also held in June and July to remind everyone about the importance of staying away from drugs.
This annual anti-drug dance competition is open to all students and youths
- from primary and secondary schools or post-secondary institutions
- aged 25 years and below
Organised annually by the National Council Against Drug Abuse (NCADA) and CNB, the event allows youths to showcase their talent and demonstrate that they can enjoy life and have fun without resorting to drugs.
Anti-Drug Ambassador Scheme
Primary school students conduct research and complete anti-drug exercises to achieve an Anti-Drug Ambassador Award. Through a fun and interactive way of learning, students hear and share anti-drug messages together with their teachers, parents and caregivers.
Special Interest Competitions
Competitions (e.g. anti-drug art, essay writing, comic strip design, animation, sports) are organised throughout the year for perse groups and youths. The process of researching and completing their entries gives participants the chance to understand and process the anti-drug message.
Outstanding entries have been used to produce different anti-drug souvenirs or publications for schools and members of the public.
