HOLY FAMILY School students have teamed up with Keighley MP Kris Hopkins to spread the anti-drugs message.

The students produced, directed and acted in small plays then built on them to create a hard-hitting display in Keighley Library.

Kris Hopkins MP visited the pupils while they assembled by display at the library and applauded their efforts.

He said: “The pupils and staff at Holy Family Catholic School have taken up this challenge and are having a real effect. From creating these four plays they are now spreading the word to the wider community at the library.”

The display is open to the public at the library throughout this week.

Holy Family School student Alex Volpe student, said: “‘Drama and writing have really helped our class understand the problems that drugs can bring by thinking about what happens to our characters.”

Deputy head Damian Moore said he was proud of the work and thought that the students have put into the campaign.

He said: “They have created some very hard-hitting content and I would urge people to visit the display and understand the thoughts that have gone into producing these pieces of work”
