Vaping

Vaping is a growing concern for our parents and school communities. The Anti-Vaping Toolkit contains information on strategies to minimise vaping among students and how vaping can be addressed in the curriculum.

There has been growing concern about the harmful effects of e-cigarettes and vaping. Research has found that in WA, 13.5% of secondary students have tried an e-cigarette. Schools play an important role to help prevent students from using e-cigarettes by making sure they know the facts about vaping.

Anti-Vaping Toolkit

The Anti-Vaping Toolkit is a collection of resources and creative assets designed to raise awareness of the health risks of using electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes, vapes). These resources can be used by schools to inform young people, parents and carers and school staff about vaping. The Anti-Vaping Toolkit aims to:

  • increase awareness about vapes and the health risks of vaping
  • address the myths and misperceptions around vaping

The Department of Education WA and the WA Department of Health acknowledge NSW Health’s authorship and ownership of these materials.
