MEMBERS of the Restorative Justice group based at Arbroath Academy visited Seaton Grove Residential Home on Thursday morning.

The group which is run in partnership with Angus Restorative Justice Service, Tayside Council on Alcohol and Angus Connect, aims to show young people about the possible consequences of their actions.

The six boys taking part have been learning, through a wide range of engaging activities, about society’s expectations of them and about taking responsibility.

As part of the project, the group had to develop and deliver a quiz to the residents at Seaton Grove.

And Julie Anne Alexander from Tayside Council on Alcohol explained it proved a worthwhile task for the youngsters.

She said: “The activity proved extremely successful with both the residents and the boys as it broke down many stereotypes and allowed the boys to develop good relationships with the residents.”

Not only has the project encouraged the boy’s to think about how their actions affect others, but Arbroath Academy has also reported an improvement in their behaviour at school.
