2nd Class - Mindfulness Workshop

15th Sep 2023

On Thursday 14th September, 2nd Class were invited to attend a mindfulness workshop and story time with Éadaoín Dooley in Sligo Library.

During the workshop, the pupils learned about different breathing techniques, such as, belly breathing and butterfly breathing. Éadaoín then introduced the children to the ‘mind jar’ where everyone got the opportunity to add their own feelings to the jar by selecting a coloured glitter to represent how they were feeling.

By listening to Éadaoín read the story: It’s Always There’ by Louise Shanagher and Rose Finerty, the children learned what they could do if there were faced with stressful situations.    To round off the session, 2nd Class engaged with a mindful drawing activity which proved to be very popular.

We had a chance to practice our breathing and finished up feeling perfectly relaxed. A great morning was enjoyed by all.
