Books, reading and life in a school library

Wellness Wednesday


In the middle of last term, we started having a slightly different Wednesday lunchtime, after discovering there was such a thing as ‘Wellness Wednesday’.  We already had a small book group (reading, discussion, and journaling) so to encourage a disconnect from technology (PCs, phones, laptops, etc.) our Wellness Wednesday session was born. Pupils can come in and do what they want, as long as it is relatively quiet and no technology is involved. We already have a no phone policy in the library (unless permission sought for educational use) however, this was ignored from time-to-time. On Wednesdays we are much stricter.

The relaxed atmosphere has been commented on by passing SLT. It is a really pleasant way to chill and wind down from screen time.
