Mindfulness / Mindful Practices
As part of Brookwood’s commitment to Alberta Education and Parkland School Division’s action on Student Wellness and PSD’s Student Resiliency Project, the staff of Brookwood has undertaken a professional learning journey into understanding and implementing Mindfulness/Mindful Practices at Brookwood School.
We have committed time and resources to implement Mindfulness at Brookwood. We believe in the value of Mindfulness as an approach that supports our commitment to teaching the whole child: nurturing academic, social and emotional learning for all children.
Over the next few months, as part of our Mindfulness/Mindful Practices Initiative, we will be looking at gratitude as an action of mindfulness. Our objective will be to give students and staff an awareness of the gratitude that they have for others and the power of gratitude in promoting a positive outlook and positive experiences.
Please see the Gratitude Newsletter document for more information.
The main Mindfulness resources for the staff of Brookwood are:
