Is your child starting middle school soon? This programme has been designed to support children with making their transition from primary to middle school a smooth one!
After this 8 week programme, your child will have a toolkit to help them feel empowered, calm and ready to start the next great adventure in their life! We look at building resilience, dealing with those niggling worries and focusing on how being in the present moment helps to calm our amazing brain!
Your child will not only learn about mindfulness and resilience, they will also learn about the science behind why we practice mindfulness. This helps to support your child with the importance of why they need to take care of their wellbeing. After all, when we know why, we are more likely to do.
Mindful movement, mindful eating and body scan practices are just a few elements of the programme. Your child will be taught how to notice their feelings without judgement. They will learn how to deal with “big feelings” as they occur. They will learn how to live in the present moment. Alongside this, your child will have the opportunity to build friendships with children the same age. We also have lots of fun and celebration of learning along the way!
What is included in the 8 week programme?
- A weekly 45 minute session for your child to attend at Tamahere Country Model School – starting Wednesday 14th October 1:15-2:00pm. Classes run on each Wednesday until 2nd December.
- A mindfulness booklet with transition focused mindfulness activities. This also has details of what your child has learned in class.
Who is the programme for?
This programme is for all children who are in their last year of primary school. We think mindfulness is awesome for all children (there is plenty of science to show how great mindfulness is!). Just like we are taught about our physical health, knowledge of our mental health is for everyone too! There is no religious element to this course; our focus is on living in the moment and the science of the benefits of mindfulness.
