Drug education in schools
Drug education is taught in primary and secondary schools in NSW as part of Personal Development, Health and Physical Education (PDHPE) programs from Kindergarten to Year 10.
Students in Years 11 and 12 in NSW government schools study a mandatory personal development and health education course called Crossroads.
For an overview of what's included in the curriculum, see the NSW Department of Education website.
