Back to school – September is an ideal month to run Mindfulness introductory sessions in schools.
2nd September – Mindfulness Taster session at Unicorn School, an independent prep school in Kew. A unique parent-owned school, which was funded by a group of parents and teachers in 1970.
About sixty parents, governors, teachers and staff keen to learn about the potential of mindfulness attended the session.
21st September – Mindfulness Taster session at West Grove in Southgate, a primary school in the heart of the community. Over twenty teachers and other staff attended this highly engaging session.
During the taster sessions at these schools, we talked about the possibilities of using Mindfulness in education to support staff wellbeing and performance as well as wellbeing and attainment of children.
