Vaping: Information Night for Families

Burnaby Central Secondary is hosting an information night on November 6 (7-9pm) about substance use, including vaping.

Put on by the District Parent Advisory Council, the event includes:

  • speakers from our Safe and Caring Schools and Counselling departments, as well as the RCMP, Fraser Health Authority, and Odyssey – a program that provides services to youth and their families who are affected by substance abuse
  • information about how to talk with your child about substances

Learn more about the Parent Information Evening. 

We also have resources to help students understand the consequences of vaping. As a district, we are working to:

  • support students and their families with information about how vaping can impact health
  • provide students with the tools to make safe decisions

Learn more in our Frequently Asked Questions and read our infographic: Vaping – Five Things You Need to Know.

Additional information about BC students and vaping can be found in a flyer created by the McCreary Centre Society.
