Latest Happiness News

Check out our latest news for ways to increase happiness.


This year it is my mission to start a revolution in education, one that starts from within the staff in schools and then ripples and impacts on the wider world. I have been told that we need a Happiness Gang of 1000 for anyone to take any notice and from this information I am creating the Top 1000 Happiest Educators! These educators (you), are those people willing to go the extra mile, put children first and believe in the power of joining together to make a positive change for the future.

We will complete a series of six-month challenges together and commit to gathering as many educator friends and colleagues into the group.

Are you in?

I’m so looking forward to meeting you. Let’s make change in education by showing the world how we are the top 1000 Happiest Educators.

Happy New Year! Love Shonette xx

“Time is more precious than gold, more precious than diamonds, more precious than oil or any valuable treasures.
It is time that we do not have enough of, it is time that causes the war within our hearts, and so, we must spend it wisely.
Time cannot be packaged and ribboned and left under trees for Christmas morning.
Time can’t be given. But it can be shared. “
 – Cecelia Ahern
My favourite quote and reminder to gift my family more of my time this holiday season.
Why? Because we all get so lost in the comparison Christmases we find on adverts and lose ourselves in the busyness that we forget just how many memory making opportunities we miss at this time of year. My staff and I a few years ago were up to our eyes in the show, cards, mince pie making and the contagious ‘tired moan’ started. Lots of our children don’t have John Lewis style Christmas, in fact one child thought he and his family were lucky as they shared a tin of custard on Christmas Day.So, let’s set aside our moans (get the wand out!) and make 2017 count up to Christmas the best memories so far for children and staff. All you need to do is click the link to register free and join in the fun by sharing your experiences via FB or twitter. Why not send the link to parents to encourage parent partnership? Recently a Mum with depression said the 50 things to do this summer had helped her more than anyone would ever know through the summer holidays.

Please can I share my exciting news?
