The content was very good, it discussed themes that were relevant to the children, the videos were great for kickstarting discussions and the lesson plans were well laid out.

Catherine Kilcommons - St Louis SPS

I really liked the current topics, videos, mindfulness videos and the resilience app. Thank you so much to everyone who has worked so hard on this programme, we were delighted to be a part of it.

Maura Ní Thiarnaigh - An Mhodhscoil

A great programme that empowers students to be in charge of their own well-being. The hands-on strategies are presented in an appealing manner and can be easily integrated as daily routines.

Anke Caton - St Killians School

The children and I loved the programme, it was very user-friendly with very clearly planned out with precise objectives. It’s one of the best and most effective programmes I’ve used since I started teaching 19 years ago!

Pamela Denton - Clonroche National School

The topics were very current and the situations were very relatable to the children. The suggestions for questions to ask the children were very helpful and stopped me going off on a tangent.

Lucy Bowen - St Killians School

Overall the programme was great, I felt the students really related to it and engaged really well in the programme. They enjoyed the videos with different scenarios, very positive overall.
