Teaching staff are often very busy, hardworking individuals who can take on more than their fair share of responsibilities and obligations in order to provide the best for their schools, colleges and pupils.
Stress levels amongst school and college staff, (whether teaching or non-teaching) can be very high at certain times of the year. Pupils work better when stimulated and relaxed, and the same goes for the teachers……a happy, connected teaching team is an effective one!

“The laughter session was a mix between really fun exercises generating gales of laughter and practical information about the benefits of laughter on our psyche and health.
