BCHS played host to the launch of Blackburn with Darwen Council’s new campaign to make young people aware of the dangers of drinking alcohol. ‘Totally Wasted’ is a four-part series of short films produced to highlight how alcohol can negatively affect your life. The project was produced in partnership with local design agency TPW and young Blackburn film maker Aeman Ali Afzal.
The launch event allowed every year group to watch the filmover the course of five special assemblies. Representatives from the Council, TPW and Lifeline were on hand to give the students a background to the film, its making, discuss issues around alcohol, and answer any questions that our students had.
