Feedback from one of our education programs

“Reinforces health curriculum outcomes in a fun, interactive way.”

 “Helps open the door to discussions on abuse and what is/is not appropriate.” 

"Students are more aware of feelings, differentiating between feelings and developing ways to control and calm oneself.” 

"Seems to have improved some behaviours and there is less tattling.”
