At Cawdor Public school the teachers and staff continuously strive to enhance student wellbeing and mindfulness.
We aim to nurture students by providing them with the skills to be confident and to develop a positive lifestyle as active, informed and respectful citizens. In line with our schools strategic directions for 2015-2018 we implemented a program called MindUp.
This is a research-based training program used to teach students how to self-regulate behaviour and mindfully engage in focused concentration required for academic performance. Whilst also enhancing perspective taking, empathy and kindness as well as fostering complex problem solving skills.
This program assists students in not only developing academically but socially and emotionally as well.
