Principals in Melbourne schools are now saying that meditation for children is more important than ever. A recent report in the Herald Sun states that;
“Students as young as five are doing daily meditation in class as the mindfulness movement sweeps Victorian schools. Wellbeing workers are becoming more common as schools integrate mental health into learning to improve student wellbeing, grades and social skills.”
What to Expect from the Application of Mindfulness
In today’s high-tech, fast-paced world, it’s pretty easy to become over-stimulated and children as absorb the energy of the environment which they live in. We expect to concentrate and focus. Meditation brings about better concentration, increased focus, and boosts of memory.
So, so grateful that we share this wonderful practice with our students.
