QEGS Primary School were very lucky to have a visit from ‘The Kindness Coach’, John Magee.

We were extremely honoured, as the first school in the UK to welcome John on his ‘Happy Tank’ book tour.  John delivered a ‘Happy Tank’ assembly to all year groups and ran a super learning day workshop for pupils in Year 5.

As part of the workshop, Year 5 pupils received their very own copy of ‘The Happy Tank’ and worked through the book with John, learning how to ‘fill their happy tanks’ using six steps; breathing, reflection, kindness, affirmations, gratitude, and happy tapping.

Pupils really enjoyed the session with John and felt they had learnt new skills in order to self-regulate and feel happier.

Miss Southworth, Head of Primary said “The super learning day with John has been amazing and the book is absolutely brilliant! The Happy Tank gives children practical tools to improve their mood and more importantly teaches them to self-regulate. The six steps shared in the book gives children positive habits that will stay with them for life which is key to positive mental health; happy children = children learning.”
