'A Safe Haven' - Ellie & Delyth

Almost a decade after leaving Wellington, OW Ellie Porter and Mrs Lynch discovered recently that they had more in common than they thought…

In this moving and candid chat, they share the reasons why boarding school was their “safe haven”, Ellie using it as an escape from living with her alcoholic father and Mrs Lynch from a mother with a serious mental health illness. Hear how their experiences have shaped their lives and just how important supportive friends and teachers can be.
