Mindful Monday proved to be a positive experience in the school last year. We will be looking at further developing the whole area of positive mental health in the school.
To start it off, 1st – 6th class will take part in Mindful Monday today. Next month, will see the Junior and Senior infants join in.
So tonight, all children from 1st-6th will have no homework. This will give them an opportunity instead to engage in a relaxing and mindful activity with you their family.
It is encouraged to be a technology free time – some suggestions are:
Play a game
Make a jigsaw
Sit down and chat about the day
Eat your evening meal together
Look at photographs
Go for a walk/cycle
Read a story together
After the activity, your child is asked to draw a picture or write a description of what they did.
We look forward to hearing the children share about some of their ‘mindful moments’ tomorrow
