To celebrate the power of reading, libraries and good mental health, we were asked to pledge SIX minutes on Wednesday 11th May 2022 and devote it to reading.
Why? Because taking some time for yourself to relax and do things you enjoy like reading is important to help look after your mental health and wellbeing.
It has been scientifically proven that reading for just SIX minutes a day boosts your mental health by 68%.
P6/7 decided to challenge themselves to 36 minutes of reading for pleasure. It was a lovely way to end the day!
