Mindfulness Programmes for Students

Our mindfulness programmes for students are uniquely designed on the principles of mindfulness. The programmes are catered for all levels of students can be customised for all types of schools. 


1. Mindfulness for Students

Our mindfulness programmes help students to pay attention to the present moment through simple mindfulness practices which increase awareness of bodily sensations,  thoughts, emotions and their surroundings so as to reduce stress and  anxiety and boost levels of their attention and concentration. Mindfulness training:

  • supports their “readiness to learn”

  • promotes academic performance

  • strengthens attention and Self-Calming

  • reduces anxiety before testing

  • promotes self-reflection and self-calming

  • improves classroom participation by supporting impulse control

  • provides tools to reduce stress

  • enhances social and emotional learning (SEL)

  • fosters pro-social behaviours and healthy relationships

  • supports holistic wellbeing

2. Mindfulness for Youths-at-Risk

Besides normative developmental transitions, youths might also face challenges relating to family life (finance, divorce, occupations), pressures of school, academic performance, peer and couple relationships amongst others. To make matters worse, research shows that at-risk youths have additional challenges of poor psychosocial outcomes, maladaptive behaviours and lowered academic performance.


It is therefore a critical period of their lives and interventions are required to help them to have insight and learn coping skills in order to reduce the possible onset of cognitive, emotional, behavioural and social problems that could potentially persist till their adulthood stages. Studies have shown that mindfulness based programmes have a positive impact in reducing stress and improvements in physical, emotional, cognitive and psychosocial wellbeing. Mindfulness interventions for youths at-risk found promising results in a wide range of settings including homeless  shelters, juvenile detention centres, outpatient clinics and schools. 


This 12-18 week workshop aims to help students develop self-awareness, self-management and social awareness, learn to reduce stress in their lives, understand the importance of wholesomeness, deal with problems at home, notice the triggers of violence and conflicts; and resolve conflicts mindfully amongst others.

Mindfulness-Oriented Animal Assisted Activities (MOA) is a unique programme that integrates both mindfulness and animal-assisted activities. Research suggests that combining Mindfulness with animal-assisted activities has the potential to significantly improve the mental wellbeing of individuals.

4. Mindfulness for Character Development

Our curated Mindfulness for Character Development programme for students plays a significant role in character building by fostering qualities and behaviours that contribute to personal growth, wellbeing, and positive relationships with others. Mindfulness research show a significant impact on social-emotional learning (SEL) by enhancing self-awareness, self-regulation, empathy, and relationship skills. Here are some ways in which mindfulness can influence. 


By incorporating mindfulness practices into SEL programs, schools can empower students to develop a strong foundation of emotional intelligence and interpersonal competencies for a well-rounded and balanced approach to life.
