Wellbeing in Education

University Bookshop Canterbury - Monday, March 23, 2020

Unfortunately the Wellbeing in Education in New Zealand conference planned for early April in Christchurch and Auckland has been postponed - another victim of Covid-19.  With the country heading into lock-down, it has never been more appropriate to discuss emotional and mental health and wellbeing in conjunction with protecting our physical health.  We had put together a great selection of books to show delegates at the conference, so, to enable us to still share them with you, we have compiled some themed order forms featuring  just a few of the latest titles.  These, and other titles in each category, can also be viewed and ordered on our web site.

Secondary Educator's Booklists

University Bookshop Canterbury - Tuesday, March 17, 2020

We have produced some book lists that we hope will be of use to secondary educators.  The books listed are all currently available, most in stock in the shop.  They are broadly themed in a way that we hope will fit into curriculum and teaching topics.  If you require quotes, more information, or would like to place an order, please email  If there are any other topics that we can help with, please let us know and we will endeavour to put a list together.
