Reducing barriers to learning.

To be mindful, and to engage in a mindfulness, can be beneficial for pupils and teachers respectively. For pupils, it can encourage them to connect more with the world around them, help them to become more open with their peers and community, and instill them with important values such as empathy and compassion.
