Welcome to Drug education in culturally diverse classrooms.


Drug education in culturally diverse classrooms is a professional learning resource for teachers of drug education in primary and secondary schools.

Here you will find a range of information about alcohol and tobacco education within culturally diverse classrooms.


The resource is based on five scenarios commonly experienced in schools. Each scenario poses questions and helps teachers to find solutions to enhance tobacco and alcohol education.

To start:

  • choose from the menu on the left.
