Holiday Programmes

Mindful Moments – Mastering the Mind

Primary 1 & 2 Camp | 7 & 8 years

6 December to 10 December

Mindfulness has been a part of Julia Gabriel Education for many years.  It is clear that mindful practices provide young school children with numerous benefits, including self-awareness, strategies for increased focus and attention, a stronger sense of wellbeing, as well as the confidence to express their feelings and emotions. Globally, as well as locally, there has been an overall increase in stress related issues in our children since the beginning of the pandemic but mindful practices are known to reduce fear and anxiety in young people.

We are delighted to share this unique mindfulness holiday camp for early primary students.

The main aims of this programme are:

  • to develop a deeper sense of self-awareness and positive self-image
  • to develop a sense of self-appreciation and self-acceptance
  • to explore and understand the 24 character strengths (according to the VIA Inventory of Strengths)
  • to understand how to self-reflect and observe thoughts, feelings and physical sensations
  • to explore the value of kindness and teamwork
  • to develop an awareness and appreciation of others
  • to understand the meaning of and develop a Growth Mindset
  • to enable children to cope during stressful times and face challenges positively

Led by one of Julia Gabriel Education’s most experienced educators, William Royston, each day students will explore individually and in groups, enjoying activities ranging from drama games, role play, design challenges, problem solving, discussions, sharing stories and journalling. As they progress, students will acquire a number of techniques designed to help them reach the aims of the programme, such as mindful breathing and emotional literacy. These strategies and techniques will enable children to positively engage in their learning during the camp and beyond.
