Mindfulfulness in the Senior Room
We are integrating mindfulness into our teaching and learning. The practice of focusing your awareness on the present moment while observing your thoughts and feelings in a non-judgmental way – is now being used in our class as part of our SPHE (Social Personal Health Education) Curriculum to build positive mental health and self-esteem.
Studies suggest that for schools to engage in mindfulness it is likely to have beneficial results on the emotional wellbeing, mental health, ability to learn and even the physical health of their students. We’re teaching our future generations to be emotionally intelligent throughout their lives.
