Mindfulness

Parents,

Please find below a series of videos on Mindfulness. The first two videos focus on mindfulness for children during worrying and challenging times. The next two focus on the loss that many pupils are struggling with, following the abrupt cessation of school,  in particular 6th class pupil and the effect that online peer communication can have on pupils’ self-esteem. They link to the SPHE curriculum and are mediated by Suzanne Mulqueen, a primary school teacher and mindfulness facilitator and Dominic Cogan, a retired primary school teacherand mindfulness and wellness facilitator. The videos are released each week – we will post them below for your convenience.
