Mindful Morning for Parents
At our Mindful Morning session, Mr. Huyck introduced parents to the basics of brain science. He also reviewed current medical and educational research that espouses the many benefits of breathing and “being in the moment” which include; enhanced concentration, improved self regulation and anxiety reduction. Rotherglen students are learning through a variety of activities and discussions, about cultivating a healthy mind. The information session culminated with Mr. Huyck leading the group through a Mindful Meditation. Interesting questions and discussion followed, and many parents stayed afterwards for further interaction. The morning session was attended by over 50 parents from both the Oakville Elementary and Oakville Primary campuses. We look forward to welcoming Mr. Huyck again for class sessions of Mindful Movement in the outdoor classroom during the month of May.
