Dougie Semple discussing the problem of knives with S1

Police Presentation Officer, Dougie Semple, of Strathclyde Police has been coming to Our Lady’s over the past few weeks to talk to pupils about the dangers of carrying knives. Pupils in 1st, 2nd and 3rd years had the chance to meet Dougie Semple through their PSHE classes.

 

Through DVD and stark images, pupils have become aware of the damage suffered by victims of knife attacks.

Meanwhile Mr Semple has been sure to reinforce the penalties for carrying a knife but also pointing out how carrying a weapon actually puts people in greater danger.
