This World Mental Health Day, we’re asking young people (in Years 3 to 11) to enter our creative writing competition with stories about what makes them happy.

Kingswood is proud to be a corporate supporter of YoungMinds, the UK’s leading charity committed to improving the mental health of children and young people. We thought of no better way to raise awareness this World Mental Health day then to encourage students to write down what makes them happy.

Deadline for entries is 31st October 2018

Every creative writing entry will be submitted into a prize draw for the chance to win either a free day trip for their school or an adventure with friends at Kingswood Camps’ summer camps.

We cannot wait to read what makes your students happy and look forward to seeing all of their creative entries!


Be quick and enter by 31st October 2018 to be in with the chance to win a FREE day trip for your class, or an adventure for your student and a friend at Kingswood Camps’ summer camps.
