Some of our students are taking part in a new community initiative to raise awareness of the dangers of “proxy sales”, where adults buy alcohol for under-18s. Today, students - supported by teachers, local police and traders - donned their high-visibility jackets and approached adults at the Magnet, asking them to purchase alcohol for them. Police officers would then step in, to explain that to buy alcohol on behalf of under-18s would be an offence. The initiative is part of the local Community Alcohol Partnership (CAP) in Castleford and Airedale, which is a partnership involving members of local authorities, police, schools, retailers, neighbourhood groups and health providers. Well done once again to our students for being superb ambassadors for our school.
