Reading Week is a Canadian event but it can also be witnessed in China, Japan, Korea, Mexico, United States and some other places around the world.
Schools brought this in February years ago because the schools were finding many students with stress or suffering depression.
The symptoms of depression include lack of appetite, loneliness and more.
The purpose of it is not a small vacation. The real purpose is to give students an opportunity to catch up on any assignments they might have, rest a bit in order to de-stress.
With the options given by SAIT for the students, it can be a great idea to attend at least once de-stressing event to have a clear mind and be ready for the midterms.
