‘Vape detectors’ catching out kids who smoke in school toilet blocks

Schools around Australia are cracking down on students vaping by using new technology to catch out those breaking the rules.


Marymede College, in Melbourne’s northeast, has installed “vape detectors” in student bathrooms and school principal Timothy Newcomb said “there are consequences” for students who are caught.


“The college community was concerned about the prevalence of vaping in society but certainly within our student population,” Mr Newcomb told Today.
