SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions) Week will occur May 1–5, the week leading up to Dana Hall’s Prom. For the second year in a row, Peer Education is partnering with the Wellesley Fire Department to bring awareness to the consequences of destructive decisions.
The members of Peer Ed will share a presentation Thursday morning to Upper School students with videos and personal stories relating to distracted driving and sexual assault. There will also be posters around campus about statistics relating to distracted driving.
Also on Thursday, the Wellesley Fire Department will bring a wrecked car to campus that was part of a real crash. Firefighters will demonstrate how they extract someone from a vehicle in severe car accidents, which Peer Ed members hope will resonate with students and get them to think twice before getting in a car with someone under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
"I love playing basketball at Dana. Our team is really like a family, and we’ve grown so much over the three years I’ve been on the team. My freshman year I never would have thought that we would be able to win the EIL league, but this past winter we did! What makes the team so great is how we look out for each other on and off the court. My teammates are my biggest supporters and it’s always great when we get to welcome new members onto the team. I can’t wait to be captain next year."
