Pupils from six Royal Borough schools have been learning vital life lessons this week.
They have been attending a five day training course since Monday, covering everything from the dangers of drugs and alcohol to sexual health - with a day of team building outdoor events.
Schools officer PC Graham Slater was among those involved, delivering a talk on drugs and the law.
The peer education course is unique to the Royal Borough - delivered by its Young People’s Drug and Alcohol Team (YPDAAT).
It has been based at at Windsor Youth Centre in Alma Road.
The young people came from Charters School, Charters Road, Sunningdale, Churchmead Church of England School, Priory Way, Datchet, Windsor Boys School in Maidenhead Road, Windsor Girls School in Imperial Road, Cox Green School, Highfield Lane, Maidenhead and Desborough College, Shoppenhangers Road, Maidenhead.
An independent report into a Conservative councillor has found a breach of the Royal Borough’s code of conduct in a document seen by the Advertiser.
