Gratitude in Primary Schools – a guide for primary school teachers
Gratitude is so important in today’s busy world, I love this book. I’m starting with my class right away, this book has given me the tools I need to get started without any planning!
Sarah Carpenter, St Thomas Mores Catholic Primary School
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this book!! Such a simple idea implemented for every age.I did Gratitude for a while about 20 years ago, and after I moved out of my parents house I found my journals. what a joy to reread the small things in my day that i was grateful for as well as the big things. It would be amazing help children to do that too!I can’t wait to tell the teachers, I’m really excited to use this with the children at our school.Dee Atere, Manor Junior School
Gratitude in Secondary Schools and Higher Education – a guide for staff working with Young People
“Wow what a read! I love the idea of getting the students grounded before starting. This is something which could help in so many situations in school.I work with students who are vulnerable or simply have lost their way and need guidance. So many of the students cannot see what to have gratitude for but I am sure going through this programme I would touch the hearts and souls of many of them. I actually think it would help them integrate back into the mainstream school.Reading through, it made me realise as an individual what I should be doing also. I am grateful for so many things in my life and had possibly lost focus on being thankful daily. This experience will help my students to build their relationships with adults and I am starting straight away!”Catherine Garton, Chamberlayne College for the Arts
“I did a lot of work with Restorative Practice in my last school and incorporated gratitude into circle time in my class, so I considered myself experienced.
My initial scepticism was left aside when I opened this book. It’s bloody brilliant! A practical hands on guide that’s jargon free and simple to implement. This is going to have a huge impact on the mental health and well being of our young people. All schools need to be timetabling this ASAP!”
