What our grant will help to fund
What lesson do you still remember from school? We believe learning about wellbeing should be inspiring, joyful and memorable! Our project transforms the educational landscape through bringing our innovative guidebooks to life in a 3D world. 17,000 students have benefitted from our guidebooks which have a proven track-record of improving wellbeing. For example, in 2021, an 84% increase in understanding of the link between food and mental health.
We now want to provide a whole school approach, including magical learning in a physical happy space. Our ‘tent event’ will arrive on-site and students and staff will experience interactive workshops over two days as the launch to a year of wellbeing education. We will provide activity packs and guidebooks for students, with lesson plans and teaching guides, and check-in with schools regularly. We will evaluate impact and use the findings to improve our resources. We will deliver this pilot to state primary schools between January 2023 – March 2024, helping over 800 children and 100 staff members.
‘‘Happy Space is working hard to help prevent mental health problems from developing wherever we possibly can. The way that we do that currently is by providing the resources and training schools need to provide amazing wellbeing education. The Movement For Good grant will enable Happy Space to transform the educational landscape through bringing our innovative mental health and wellbeing materials to life in a 3D world involving magical learning in a physical happy space ‘tent event’! We think learning about wellbeing should be inspiring, joyful and memorable and the Movement for Good grant allows us to execute our vision.’’
