Mindfulness is a way of training the mind to help us pay more attention to what is happening around us and also what is happening inside of us. Using Mindfulness within the classroom setting is very popular and can help to:
- Foster greater self-awareness
- Increase concentration
- Teach children to stay calm
- Teach children to make better decisions
We have staff trained in Mindfulness and can provide Mindfulness workshops for both staff and children within your school.
