Please speak to your son or daughter about the following:
We have been informed by police that there seems to be a craze at the moment for inhaling nitrous oxide from balloons.
The gas can have serious side effects-
it is a depressant type drug which slows down your brain and body’s responses
it can cause dizziness and headaches
it can make you act recklessly or dangerously and put you at risk of hurting yourself
it can lead to severe vitamin deficiency
There is a risk of death particularly if the gas is consumed in an enclosed space or amounts are consumed rapidly.
Since May 2016 it has been illegal to supply nitrous oxide for human consumption. If students are found with canisters/balloons to inhale it, or we suspect they have taken the gas or brought the canisters on site they will be excluded. We have already highlighted the issue with students in assemblies.
Thank you for your support with this matter.
