The MNCLHD Health Promotion team have developed a range of resources to support schools to share information with their communities about youth vaping. We have also collated a variety of reliable sources of information to enable teachers to get informed, support young people and protect them from vaping.

  • Stage 4 Education Resources – The facts about vaping – The resources on this site can be adapted by teachers to suit the needs of their students. Use these resources to plan and deliver PDHPE.
  • Stage 5 Reframing Vaping – This webpage provides 6-8 lesson learning sequences focused on debunking the myths and misconceptions students have about vaping.
  • Vaping Information Session for Schools – YouTube – This video presents information on vaping including the health risks associated with vaping and resources and strategies to address vaping in schools. It is presented by Population and Community Health, South Eastern Sydney Local Health District. 
  • Know when you are being played – This video explores the issues of manipulation and the way the Tobacco Industry uses this to recruit new consumers, young people, to their product. The video is also part of a learning package for teachers of students in Years 9-10 to assist High School PDHPE staff to address issues pertaining to ‘choice’ in and around the increasing presence and use of e-cigarettes or vapes by young people. A great resource for parents and young people.
  • The facts about vaping – Tobacco and smoking ( – On this website you will find a vaping toolkit that has been created to help young people understand what is in a vape. It is a collection of creative assets (including factsheets, social media content and newsletters) you can use at your school with young people 14 to 17 years, and teachers and carers. The vaping toolkit aims to increase awareness around vapes and the health risks of vaping and address the myths and misperceptions about vaping.
