Make Someone Happy with a Great Read for World Mental Health Day

It is World Mental Health Day on the 10th of October. Reading is an excellent way to help manage your health and wellbeing. 

There is evidence that reading novels and poetry can reduce stress and boost your mood.  Next week, pupils in year 7 and year 8 are invited to “Make Someone Happy with A Good Read”.  During tutor time next week, pupils can recommend a good book to a friend in their tutor groups which can then be reserved via Oliver and use the 'click and collect' process. 

A special World Mental Health Day bookmark has been created to help the book recommendation process and includes useful links to YoungMinds and to our Wellbeing book lists.
