Comet Bay students blaze trail with film on safety

COMET Bay College students Joel Verdon, Jacob Candeloro and Llewellyn Kent were runners-up in the Students Advising Youth Project awards on Tuesday night.

The SAY Project is a WA Police initiative where students were required to research the problems with alcohol and compile a short film to show how they could make their community drug free and alcohol aware.

Sergeant Paul Trimble said young people are often reluctant to take on board the advice from adults, whether it is about the use of illegal drugs, road safety or any other community safety topic.

“The SAY Project aims to harness their enthusiasm, innovation and creativity to empower them to become educators of other youth on topical subjects.”
