Youngsters to teach their peers following awareness lessons

A training course teaching young people to provide drug, alcohol and sexual health awareness sessions for their peers got underway in Windsor this week.

More than 15 year 11 pupils from six schools in the Royal Borough are taking part in the five-day course, which began on Monday and consists of three days of drug and alcohol training, one day of sexual health training and one day of team building.

The Royal Borough sessions are taking place at the youth and community centre in Alma Road and will see the pupils teaching what they have learned to year eight and nine students in the autumn term.

The schools taking part are Charters School, Windsor Boys' School, Windsor Girls' School, and Maidenhead schools Desborough College, Altwood School and Furze Platt Senior School.
