Eight-year-olds smoking e-cigarettes – principal cracks down
Kviingeskolan is issuing information after discovering that children in both primary and secondary schools are smoking e-cigarettes.
The school started an investigation following indications that several pupils at the school were smoking e-cigarettes. The youngest children were only eight years old.
The school's staff have therefore issued a letter to the parents, highlighting the problem and urging all adults to work together to prevent continued smoking.
The school's Principal, Ann-Sofie Jönsson, says that reports about both primary and secondary school children smokeing e-cigarettes emerged last week.
- We have spent a large part of the week talking to the children and trying to find out how they got hold of them and how many have tried them, says Ann-Sofie Jönsson.
She believes that the school is taking social responsibility by reacting and acting.
– We have issued general information to all parents and then spoken to the children and guardians who are affected, says the Principal.
