Children's Mental Health Week 2020

As part of our celebrations of Children's Mental Health Week, we read part of 'The Boy at the Back of the Class' by Onjali Rauf. This story follows a young boy (Ahmet) who is a Syrian refugee. He starts new a school in London without the ability to speak any English. We discuss what makes Ahmet braves, the qualities he has and how he can overcome the struggles he faces.
