I was recently asked if I could prepare a session for year 11 students at short notice on the topic of euthanasia. I didn't feel I had the resources to do the session at short notice but I did promise the member of staff I would look in to it and develop something that could be used in the future. Has anyone tackled this topic previously? Do you have any advice, tips, resources or activities that may be useful?

Ever been given that age old assembly topic of friendship? I've used this story in lots of schools with very positive results. I came across this in the resource section of Youthwork Magazine, summer 2006 - I tied it in with the football world cup in Germany. I shared this story with some of the other schools workers at the youthwork conference early day this year.

It's Saturday afternoon, we're enjoying manning the stand and hanging out and looking forward to tonight's school disco. The highlight of this whole experience has definitely been the people we've met.
