Education News

This September 8 schools across Australia and NZ will be marking RUOK Day and encouraging students to reach out and connect with those around them who might be struggling with life. One book which will be invaluable in your discussions is Small Things, a stunning new graphic novel that explores the universality of feelings such as sadness, anxiety, depression, heartache and loss, and the difficulty many of us feel as we try to find our way in the world. In recognition of Small Things’ importance to young people Allen & Unwin has produced two sets of teacher notes. The first includes classroom activities specifically designed for primary school students in Years 3-6, while the second includes age-appropriate activities for secondary students in Years 7-10.
