Wellness On Wheels has been developed by the library team and is designed to help maintain children’s well-being. The trolley is filled with books that cover topics from abuse to losing your favourite toy, from body image to having an unwell parent. “Well-Being In Primary Schools”, published by the Department Of Education And Skills states that “mental health should permeate all aspects of school life and learning” and that “schools should put systems in place to promote mental health and well-being”. The trolley will visit each class about once a month. By using this trolley, we are actively developing a caring culture and climate where a sense of belonging and connectedness is fostered. We are supporting our pupils to experience a wide variety of life experiences in a creative, safe and fun atmosphere. We are hoping to expose our pupils to, and encouraging our pupils to accept, the rich diversity and variety of values in our school!
Thank you to Mr Kelly's 5th Class for allowing us to photograph them as they enjoyed Wellness on Wheels.
