Since our founding in 2008, social-emotional learning and mindfulness have been one of our school’s five pillars. The motto of the school—”Good Heart, Balanced Mind, Healthy Body”—is alive and genuinely infuses our programme as we seek to raise great human beings who know themselves so that they can help others and the planet. Although there has been a lot of world-wide uptake on mindfulness lately, our experience with embedding mindfulness across a Nursery to Grade 12 curriculum for over a decade, as both a stand-alone and integrated part of the programme, is a story and strength worth sharing. Built on our three-part approach of “be mindful, teach mindfully, teach mindfulness”, we can explore the training we offer to staff, the building of time for mindfulness into the timetable and overall wellness curriculum, how we support students and parents through courses and classes and more.
