Wellbeing at school can and should be taught as part of an initiative to prevent mental ill health in our children but also as they grow into adults. If we give people a toolkit of skills to use throughout life we can build wellbeing and in turn resilience. Wellbeing is a practice that needs daily attention not just one off interventions.
Personal diaries are available to schools but can be sold individually to parents if you want to start a wellbeing practice at home. The diaries last 41 weeks which is a whole school year giving students the holidays off to enjoy time with family and friends.
These personal diaries are grounded in positive psychology research and are designed to be accessible, affordable and importantly, promote independent learning. Many schools already have homework diaries to encourage organisation of home learning tasks. Utilising the space in these, I have added wellbeing activities which are fun, quick and easy to use independently for students from as young as 4 years through to 18.
Here are activities used entirely independently by age 10 and 12 years to the left and age 5 to the right. Children need autonomy in their wellbeing education which these diaries provide.

School Wellbeing Workshops and Classes
How do you approach the topic of whole school wellbeing? Often there can be a lot of talking and talking is great. Practical classes and workshops are however fun and give us practical tools to take away and try at home and throughout school life. Workshops can be for the students, the teachers can get involved and parents can even join in. The possibilities are endless and we can fit in around your school and what you would like to cover and achieve. I work on a 12 steps to wellbeing process with activities available for each step. If you want to employ me for the entire programme we can work through the various steps involving the whole school community and more.
