Run by teachers for teachers, a fantastic scheme to spread a little sunshine into teacher’s lives everywhere.
The idea is simple – sign up to swap gift boxes with another teacher.
“The #Teacher5adayBuddyBox can consist of anything from letters of positivity such as ‘open when…’ letters to open throughout the academic year to small gifts like candles, socks etc. to help your buddy look after themselves. Of course a bit of stationery never goes a miss and perhaps something personal just to show you care.
If you wish you can even make your box follow the 5 components of #teacher5aday with something to help your buddy to notice, connect, exercise and learn. Volunteering is covered by sending a buddy box in return.”
The Wellbeing Platform for Likeminded
Education Staff to Network and Socialise
The idea for EdRests comes from my own experience, where I have many friends who do not work in education.Therefore during the academic breaks if I did want to pursue my interests/hobbies during the day very few of them would be around. Having been fortunate enough to have been on some trips away with colleagues from my previous school, it dawned on me that a platform to allow people in education to network/socialise with likeminded professionals could be hugely beneficial to people’s wellbeing and widen friendship/support groups.
