Mindfulness

As part of our school plan, and in support of our motto “Helping Children Learn Well”, mindfulness is taught in our classrooms. 

The aim of introducing a short moment of calmness and quite time in the classroom is to 

·     increase the overall wellbeing of our students 

·     create a positive learning environment at our school

·     improve every aspect of our school and daily lives

Mindfulness activities include

·     The breath bubble

·     Listening to nature sounds

Positive behaviour for learning

At our school, we apply the Positive Behaviour for Learning approach. This is a whole-school approach for creating a positive, safe and supportive school climate where students can learn and develop. Our whole school community works together to establish expected behaviours and teach them to all students.
