“I learnt that weird is interesting and good, everyone has issues”. Sue

“Please keep on relating where you are at and using yourself as an example in your course, it made me feel like that I wasn't the only one and it’s a good eye opener to know that person who is teaching you also has or is suffering from similar challenges. It makes it easier to open up”.  Mary participant at Maraenui Learning Centre
