An important note about student protection

Note for teachers


Extreme care needs to be taken in planning any kind of lesson related to gambling.

Students who have a family member with even a minor gambling problem may become upset if the relationships between problem gambling and issues such as criminal behaviour and self-harm are discussed.

As some young people can easily become addicted to gambling, avoid using an activity in a way that could trigger an interest in gambling.

Lessons should focus on curriculum requirements or student protection.
