160 Minutes of Mindfulness

A number of primary schools in the Diocese are marking Catholic Care’s 160th anniversary by pledging ‘160 Minutes of Mindfulness’.

Mindfulness is now widely practised in British schools to help children cope with anxiety and develop emotional regulation. It can take different forms including guided reflection, breathing exercises, journaling, and listening.

To promote the ‘160 Minutes of Mindfulness’ initiative, Gabriela – a Year 6 pupil at St. Joseph’s Primary School in Hunslet – has produced a beautiful poster.

Our School, Children and Family Wellbeing Service will be using it to encourage children to get involved in our 160th anniversary celebrations.
