The November conference is to be held in the National Library on the morning of the 24th. Our main speaker will be from Jigsaw, an organisation that specialises in helping teenagers deal with the pressures of modern day living and staying mentally healthy. They will be giving us an oversight on how teenagers see themselves and how they tend to deal with their day to day lives and problems that arise. Jigsaw will be followed by a teachmeet, which will have four librarians give short presentations on activities they use in their libraries for supporting student wellbeing and mental health. The topics will include ideas on using yoga, meditation, mindfulness, restorative justice, solution focus therapy and music.

What a great event today! We heard some very inspiring words from the authors and our guest Sarah Webb about the importance of reading, and a powerful message from Laurence Anholt about taking personal responsibility in stamping out prejudice ✌
Thank you to the authors who were so generous with their time chatting with the students and signing books, and to everyone who had a hand in organising the event, especially the wonderful Siobhan in Gonzaga, our hosting librarian! ... See MoreSee Less
