Within our Wellbeing programme, Mindfulness is delivered by the school’s trained Mindfulness teachers using the Mindfulness in Schools Project’s b course which is specifically aimed at teenagers in schools. Mindfulness is the ability to pay attention, non-judgementally, to the here and now.
The aim of this course is to encourage students to learn some simple yet effective practices that may help them to deal with some of the challenges that they face now, and in the future. We are a community which aims for students who flourish both pastorally and academically, who enjoy their school days and are prepared for a happy and successful adulthood.
We believe the introduction to the life skill of Mindfulness may be one way in which we can support our students with positive psychology ideas on how to enjoy life (preventative approach to mental illness).
Our students learn some simple Mindfulness meditation techniques which typically include paying close attention to the senses, such as breathing and sensations coming from different parts of the body, to eating, to movement and to sounds in the environment.
Please note that Mindfulness is non religious.
