“I would like to congratulate you on the excellent presentation you delivered to the year 9 and 10 Perth Modern students yesterday, that I had the privilege of also attending.” “I really hope that every high school student in WA gets the opportunity to hear what happened to Preston, and I know already, that his legacy has saved and will continue to save many other lives.”

Damian Shuttleworth
Carine Senior High School
Principal

Sideffect presents a very powerful, heart wrenching, compelling and confronting insight into the effects of drugs. I believe that this presentation will encourage young people to rethink using drugs and that the presentation has the potential to save young lives.

Neil Hunt
Churchlands Senior High School
Principal

Confronting, Challenging, Informative and Emotional were the strongest feedback words used by Churchlands SHS students after the Sideffect presentation.  The consensus from student feedback was that this was the best anti-drug message they had ever heard, seen or read.

In the days following the presentation, the school received numerous parent contacts in support of the program.  The consistent message was that for the first time their children came home and talked about drugs and the dangers they represent.
