School Education Program gambling information session
Senior student workshop (one hour)
Host this session for Year 10 to 12 classes, including VCAL.
Through a range of interactive tasks, this workshop enables students to:
- explore the potential influences that may shape their gambling attitudes and behaviour, especially sports betting advertising and games that look like gambling
- discover why gambling is a means of spending money rather than making money
- recognise when gambling may be becoming a concern for themselves or someone they know and be aware of the help services available.
To ensure students gain maximum benefit, this workshop is designed for 25 students or fewer.
