Four primary schools in Caversham are taking part in a new mental development programme, which aims to equip young children with practical coping skills for life.
Children from the Heights, the Hill, St Martin’s and St Anne’s primaries are benefitting from a course of Prana mind sessions with local practitioners Neena Saith and Lisa Marie Willis.
In each class they explore a range of topics, such as understanding feelings, decision making or making mistakes, and practice specific physical exercises, breathing and relaxation techniques that help improve their emotional and social wellbeing.
Karen Edwards, headteacher of the Heights Primary School, said: “We aim to equip the children with the right skills to cope with the demands of life and the Prana mind sessions have been really useful. We hope to roll out the techniques Neena has introduced throughout the school, building into each school day a little time for meditation.”
