Wellbeing axing 'cause for concern'

The axing of the Wellbeing Team is a real concern for the education of the Island's schoolchildren.

That's the belief of the local representative of the Association of Teachers and Lecturers.

Earlier this week, Education Minister Anne Craine said the Life Education Bus - featuring the popular Harold the giraffe - had been very useful over the years but it was time to end the service.

She claims schools already cover the subjects taught by Harold and the travelling team, making the facility redundant.

However, Andrew Shipley says he's very concerned about potential redeployment or redundancies and claims there's been no consultation about the closing of the service.
