Every Tuesday lunchtime, the GRO Team come in to lead Mindfulness sessions with the children. This is an optional lunchtime club which children can sign up for (free of charge) and attend every week, or drop in whenever they’re feeling down and need a chat. Parents are also welcome to sign up and/or encourage their children to attend.
The sessions last for half an hour and take place on comfortable cushions in our new upstairs library. They are led by trained Mindfulness practitioners who work with the children in a gentle way to think about how they’re feeling and through guided breathing techniques and singing, help them to work through any worries or niggles so they can go back to class rejuvenated.
Mindfulness classes are brought to us by volunteers from the GRO Team (Grass Roots Opportunities) who also run our after school care sessions.
