Students drink in lessons

YEAR 12 students quenched their thirst for knowledge with a tour of Warwick's pubs and clubs this week.

Warwick State High School students took part in the second annual Think the Drink program on Tuesday.

The students learnt about such topics as responsible drinking, taxi etiquette, parties and drugs while visiting the Horse & Jockey, Criterion, RSL, Warwick RSL and Condamine Sports Club.

Following morning tea in Leslie Park, the students strapped on beer goggles and really put their skills to the test in agility races.

School-based youth health nurse Denise Dixon said the program was a popular and effective way to give them the tools to drink responsibly.

"It really is about getting them ready for Schoolies and going out into pubs and clubs and keeping them safe," she said.

"The kids really enjoy it because they're getting taken out of school and getting into the pubs and clubs."
