"Really good, informative and hard-hitting," was one of the comments made by a Year 12 student after a powerful workshop on the dangers of drugs was delivered by Mick and Ben today at Clyst Vale Community College. After the session they had an informal chat with some of the Year 11 students that they met last year. A very positive, productive day. Thank you Clyst Vale.

We visited Isca Academy in Exeter last week to watch a GCSE drama production based on the Five Lives stories.The play, 'The Tragedy of Modern Man,' was written, acted and directed by some very talented Year 11 drama students. It was powerful and thought provoking, tackling the challenging issues of drugs, alcohol, self-harm and eating disorders, and we were so impressed we are now hoping we can take it with us to other schools in Devon and use it alongside our workshops. It would be a very powerful combination.

John was on Radio Devon this morning talking to Gordon Sparks about his life from drug addiction and crime to being employed. He is an example of someone who has totally turned his life around and he has shown what can be achieved if you work hard. He, like everyone else in the Five Lives team, is totally inspiring, and he put it so well when he said, " I want people to know that they can change." Watch Inside Out tonight on BBC1 at 7.30 to hear more about his story and also about Ali's story.
