Schools Sit Together

Yesterday our school completed the Schools Sit Together event run by the Mindfulness in Schools initiative. Pupils sat in silence with tutors at the end of their school day during their wellbeing lessons, listening to two of audio files.  Pupils and staff were very positive about the experience and reported feeling relaxed and able to focus on themselves, during what has been a challenging and stressful time for them. A running total at the moment stands at 139 minutes at present, multiplied by each pupil equals thousands of minutes!

Quotes from pupils

"I have never been so relaxed in school."

"I could focus on myself more than I usually could."

"It allowed me to clear my head and think about my feeling."
