Anti-Drug Abuse Course (SANA)

Introduction 

This is usually held during the school holidays and training is held on one weekday. 
There are two time slots for this course (9.00am - 12.30pm or 1.00pm - 5.30pm). 
Boys will undergo a course on anti-drug abuse and share the message to other friends. 

 

This course is open to Sec 2s and above ONLY.

 

 

Criteria for Passing Course 

a)      Written Test

 

To pass the course, Boys must pass a written test during the course:

 

Section A

20 Multiple choice questions - 40 marks

Section B

10 True/False questions - 20 Marks

Passing Mark

60%

 

b)      Friends of Transfer Agent Project (FOTA)

 

In addition, they will need to do an online submission of this project within 2 weeks after the course to

http://www.sana.org.sg/badgeproject

 

They are to spread anti-drug messages to:

  • 5 different persons (their peers) who have not attended the course or been interviewed before.

 

The 5 persons will be given the unique badge ID of the Boy to  fill up the FOTA online.

Absenteeism from the course, or failure of the written test, or failure in the submission of the transfer agent forms will mean that they will fail the course.

Successful participants will be awarded the SANA certificate. Captain may then proceed to apply for SANA Badge using Form 32A; the badge, however, is a souvenir and is not to be worn on the uniform.
