Tūturu – Strengthening students’ critical thinking, so they can make healthy decisions in a world where alcohol and other drugs exist.

The Tūturu Summit will be held at Parliament on 18–19 March. The event is aimed at secondary school leaders, teachers, pastoral care staff, and board of trustees members. We will share learnings from New Zealand secondary schools who worked with local alcohol and other drug services to develop Tūturu. Listen to them share their approaches to student wellbeing, the tools and pathways they created to help their rangatahi build agency, critical thinking skills, and decision-making confidence around alcohol and other drugs, and create the way forward together. Take a look at the programme.

Tūturu helps schools to plan and develop their approach to improving student wellbeing and develop their critical thinking. Tūturu’s first focus area is alcohol and other drugs – helping to prepare secondary school students for a world where alcohol and other drugs exist. The resources were made for schools, with schools, and have been reviewed by several health and education experts. They are free and highly tailorable for schools to use. Tūturu is led by the NZ Drug Foundation and overseen by the Ministries of Health and Education, the Health Promotion Agency, and NZ Police. Read about Tūturu.
