20 What school’s say: I have had some good feedback from some of the last group in terms of them helping others by using mediation and also some have had a great improvement in their relationships with others. (Paula: Thurstable) Thank you for your support in running the PACS groups in school we have found them to be beneficial to the children. We are already looking forward to working with you again in June! (Hannah: Cherry Tree Primary) 20

21 What student's say 21 PACS has taught me I can be who I want, I don’t have to be a low life. I learnt to control my anger and to be a bit more positive in life I’ve learnt from PACS that deep inside, I’m a nice person not an aggressive person. So I’m going to change my ways from now on. PACS has told me that whenever I am about to hurt other people’s feelings to take a breath and turn away from them. PACS learnt me that people do think that I’m nice and not annoying and stupid
