The Guardian: Think Positive

Wellington College now hold controversial happiness classes, where pupils are taught the ingredients of happiness. Speaking as someone who went to one of the sister schools to Wellington, I can say that public school pupils probably need happiness classes more than many children. The focus is so often on academic achievement, not other kinds of achievement. Of course, I guess it is all in the way the classes are taught, but I admire the headmaster of Wellington for his innovation. Happiness is a complex business, one that the public school I attended was pretty much devoid of.
