Our programme includes mindfulness and mediation, focussing in three main areas:

Attention

Children will learn how to aim and sustain their attention; it’s all about choosing where their attention goes. This is critical in today’s world where children are overloaded with information coming at them from all areas – shop signs/programmes/ads/devices/toys. There are no ‘stop’ signals and this is causing anxiety, with children believing they must have X, Y and Z in order to be happy. Where our attention goes, our energy flows. Students will learn how to bring their own voice to make it all the noise stop; to focus their attention on who and what matters most to them in life.

Balance

Paying attention is no good, unless we are in a balanced state. Children don’t have the skills to get themselves out of stressful situations mentally like adults can. In fact, many adults are unable to do this effectively. This is critical for our mental health and wellbeing. With mental health illness increasing in NZ and an estimated 29% of youth having a mental disorder in a 12-month period and suicide being the leading cause of death for young people, teaching our children how to create balance in their lives and cope with stressful situations is critical. Paying attention is not good, unless we are in a balanced state.

Connection

Once children have focus and balance in their lives, it’s important that they feel connected to others. To have successful relationships, they must understand that what they do effects others, just like what others do effects them. This section teaches students compassion; that we’re all the same, that it’s good to offer help and to receive help. It teaches them empathy and improved self-awareness, which are critical emotional intelligence skills.
