“I have learnt how to calm myself down when I am angry”.
Cefn Mawr Pupil
“The course was not only beneficial for the whole class, but has also had a major impact on certain individuals. For one child it has been as effective as counselling and a much more comfortable experience as they have remained in class doing the same thing as their peers.”
Miss Jutson, KS2 Lead, Bwlchgwyn Primary School
“I have learned how to handle tough situations and how to steady myself and carry on.”
St Ethelwold’s Pupil
“The course materials were brilliant for this age group.”
Miss Ellingham, Year 6 Teacher, Ysgol Derwen
