I think the content of the pack is excellent and covers all the topics that teenagers have to deal with. A lot of children could benefit from this pack if they are being bullied or influenced in the wrong way and will know how to handle peer pressure.

Most of the students had been in the same situation at one time or another, and were therefore able to discuss the issues raised.
