Mindfulness at School

Welcome to the Mindfulness at School Project support page


This page was created to support teachers enrolled in a collaborative project presented by PDST Advisor Ciara Delaney in association with Athlone Education Centre and the Mullingar School Completion Programme. Participants attended two training days aimed at supporting them in introducing mindfulness in their own schools. Here you will find resources that will help you to introduce and maintain a mindfulness practice in your school.
