From Life Skills Officer – Lion Derek Rutter
I am delighted to inform you that Life Changes 2, a resource for 11-16 year olds, covering Loss, change and bereavement has now been published and is available to order for £59.95 + p&p.
It is my belief that most Secondary schools would benefit from having this resource available, in this ever changing world all too often we hear about events that could change the lives of young people this resource helps teachers guide them through these changes.
Derek Rutter, Lions Lifeskills Officer
If any club or Zone Chairman would like me to attend one of their meetings, please contact me.
