Mr C Dodd – Staff Editor
Salutaris is the GSAL Sixth Form academic journal. It is an annual publication that provides Sixth Form students the opportunity to showcase their academic writing. It also provides a number of students with editorial experience. The name ‘Salutaris‘ means ‘health-giving’ or ‘beneficial’, i.e. promoting healthy academic discussion and writing that can benefit one’s mind.
Salutaris was set up six or seven years ago and is student led. Students request and collate articles, proof-read and decide on their appropriateness, and then work with staff editors Mrs Gray (E-Learning Designer) and Mr Rushworth (Director of Sixth Form) to publish the annual edition around Easter time.
The GSAL Journal would like to thank the talented student and staff team who have worked together to produce this excellent publication, shared here for everyone to read and enjoy. CPD
