215. Mr. Kenny asked the Minister for Education and Science if he will confirm that the SMPP Walk Tall initiative and course for teachers and parents will continue beyond June 2001; if he will confirm continuation of the programme On My Own Two Feet in secondary schools; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [7136/01]
Dr. Woods Dr. Woods
Minister for Education and Science (Dr. Woods): The support programme for Walk Tall  will have been delivered to all primary schools by June of this year. Ongoing provision in this area, related to substance misuse prevention, will be integrated into the social, personal and health education programme for which training is scheduled to commence at primary level from September 2001.
The issues associated with On My Own Two Feet at post-primary level have been subsumed into the SPHE curriculum which is being supported by the SPHE post-primary support team established by my Department.
