Concerned with the dangers that alcohol and drug consumption would have on their fellow students, a group of students at NMIT worked hard to organise a number of activites to raise awareness on the effects of drugs and alcohol.

Year 11 students at Loyola College interviewed a number of inspirational members of the Banyule community as part of the Banyule 100 project.
Banyule 100 is a project that seeks to challenge the stereotypical negative images of young people portrayed in mainstream media. The students researched, interviewed and wrote articles for the project. The articles will accompany a portrait taken by local young photographer Sean Porter and can be viewed at www.banyule100.com
