An area for mindfulness and reflection has been introduced at St Mary’s. With relaxed seating and an array of comforting drinks on offer, this is an area where students can go to speak to one of the Listeners or take some time to think.
‘We know that students’ well-being is vitally important if they are to face the challenges and make the most of the opportunities life brings’, says Miss Middleditch, the schools Mindfulness and Resilience Co-ordinator. The girls are encouraged to speak about any worries or problems to the Listeners or their Buddy, who they are paired with when they join in Year 7.
