They worked in groups to find out more about how it is spread and how itís developing in the less economically developed countries. They discussed how people are discriminated against and also learnt the skills to go back and take lessons on HIV and Aid to assemblies and PSE classes. They also met a group of peer educators from Malawi who told of personal experiences and also performed the songís and playís they use to educate the people of Malawi in order to prevent the spread, as most people in these countries are illiterate. All had a great day and the lessons are soon to follow.
