This is a great story from Tony Buck who posted this on the community blog a few months ago. A presentation in keynote, powerpoint and quicktime formats has now been added to complete the resource.

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.
