Mindfulness Monday

Last year SPC introduced Mindfulness Monday as a whole school initiative.

 

Mindfulness Monday will continue again this year.  Students and staff are encouraged to take a moment to be present, centered and grounded, in readiness for their learning and work throughout the week.

 

This term, we are taking the opportunity to tune ourselves back into the purpose and benefits of Mindfulness.  We continue to explore techniques used in mindfulness meditation.

 

Mindfulness is a skill for life

Mindfulness practices, have been proven to be one of the most effective ways to lower stress levels, cope more effectively with stressful events and prevent stress build up and burn out.

(Georgina Manning Psychotherapist and co-founder of Peaceful Kids Program).

Mindfulness can calm the mind, focus our attention and help us make the most out of life.  

Mindfulness is about focusing attention on the here and now, rather than thinking about the past or worrying about the future. Good mental health in childhood sets young people up for the future and their career

(Smiling Minds Mindfulness Program).

For further queries, please feel free to contact me or talk to your child’s teacher.
