Anne Russell, public speaker and expert on Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD), made a special visit to the Academy to speak to students and staff about the dangers of unplanned pregnancies, drug and alcohol use.

She shared her expertise and personal experiences on the impact of alcohol on a fetus, and the life and growth of a child.

Anne’s ethos is “no blame no shame,” and her charity is the Russell Family Fetal Alcohol Disorders Association (RFFADA).

Thank you Anne for donating your time and sharing your experience.
