Emotional Health and Wellbeing

What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness involves training our attention to experience the present moment with greater curiosity and consciousness. This helps us not only to appreciate what is going well, but to respond more skilfully to life’s inevitable challenges.

A particular focus is how our words and actions can affect others. Think “Choose kind”, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you”, and “What is hurtful to you, do not do to any other person”.

The children explore some of the following themes:  happiness, kindness, courage, resilience, the power of thought, compassion, self-esteem, emotional self-regulation and dealing with stress and conflict.
