4 sunday sessions of mindfulness. Children learn techniques to help them manage stress and anxiety, as well as improve their focus and output. Mindfulness not only helps mental and physical wellbeing - but it is a great tool for stimulating the brain to hold greater volumes of information, and improve creative thinking. Mindfulness is now considered a key factor in preparing pupils for secondary school and exam season.
