With parents in attendance, a graduation ceremony was held Friday afternoon.
For their hard work and efforts, the students received certificates and t-shirts.
Along with D.A.R.E. officer Cst. Carla Humes, who conducted the program, were Burin Peninsula District RCMP Staff Sergeant Wayne Edgecombe and Sgt. Howard Gale.
Burin-Placentia West MHA Clyde Jackman was also present for this year’s ceremony.
D.A.R.E. stands for ‘Drug Abuse Resistance Education’.
Three students – Kayla Banfield, Kerri Clarke and Ashley May – were selected to read from their essays explaining what they had learned from the program.
Ashley acknowledged “D.A.R.E. has been a wonderful course and I am glad I was part of it.”
