wellbeing for
& teachers

"We learned how it can help to act kindly towards others and do things that are beneficial to others."

"I think everyone in the class changed a bit, and in a positive way - we were friendlier, nicer, less cliquey".

Students' feedback

"I learned a lot of skills - we learned how to 'write out' a problem and look at the different possible solutions, and how to focus on your strengths rather than weaknesses"

"It encourages you to be more confident and start from a point where you accept that maybe everyone has some good in them. I felt it was very relevant".

from interview in the Irish Examiner

"We learned how to view a situation from someone else's point of view"

"During the summer I tried the skills of
not playing games on my phone but taking time out to reflect. I find it helps." 

"I found classes give you more confidence to talk to people".
