Parents and pupils at the Universal American School in Festival City attended a lecture by Dubai Police about the dangers of illegal drugs.

As part of an emirate-wide campaign under the slogan of "Together for Drug-Free Schools", lecturers warned anyone who might be tempted to use psychotropic tablets that the consequences could be devastating.

Parents were urged to keep an eye on their children's behaviour, their acquaintances and their online activities.

The school's role in cultivating a drug-free community was also stressed by organisers.
