In 2019, a survey of 30,000 year 10 students found more than a third had tried e-cigarettes, with three per cent saying they vaped daily — higher than the rate who consider themselves regular smokers.

As of earlier this month, no vaping signs must now be displayed in schools, kura, ECEs and kōhanga reo.

Hobsonville Point School principal Maurie Abraham says it’s harder to deter teenagers from vaping because it’s widely considered to be less harmful than cigarettes.

“I think we’ve been winning the battle with cigarette smoking with teenagers over the years,” he said.
