4. Implementing a Whole School Approach
Health services


Inviting the school health services team to be an active part of the school’s approach to mindfulness is an important stage. A member of the Health Services team on the Project Team would provide access to the health professional’s knowledge, skills and networks which may strengthen the school’s approach. Further, these staff may be able to provide training or support to classroom teachers or be a sounding board for staff that are unsure of the approach.
