In Solihull School we have started a Mindfulness club for students from the primary school.
In the autumn term Year 5 and 6 had the opportunity to learn a series of practical exercises helping them to focus, concentrate, be present and relax.
We started with an assembly for the entire primary school where nearly 300 hundred students together learned about the origins of Mindfulness and and practiced a simply breathing technique. This was followed by setting up an after-lunch club that was voluntary for the children to join. To our delight many students signed up making for a thoroughly enjoyable 5 week course. Here are some of the students thoughts about the course.
