This term our school is starting a series of eight Pause Breathe Smile sessions currently funded by Southern Cross. These lessons are based on current wellbeing science and neuroscience. Results show that participation in Pause, Breathe, Smile; Improves focus and attention for better learning outcomes; increases calm and student wellbeing; enhances self-awareness and pro-social behaviour and reduces test anxiety and boosts resilience. We hope that parents will take this opportunity to support our school’s focus on wellbeing, and their child’s mindfulness journey, by learning mindfulness for themselves. Attached is a flyer outlining what each session will entail.
