19KEC305 Well-Being, Self-Care & Mindfulness for the Primary Teacher


Facilitator:  Mary Bourke

Dates:  Mon 1st July - Fri 5th July 2019 (9.30am-2pm)

This course provides a space for the primary teacher to address their well-being needs both personally and professionally.  The course has two main aims:

To understand and address the needs of the teacher:

·        The course is designed with the intention of giving you breathing space; space to retreat from your busy life and reflect on your own journey in terms of self-care and well-being

·        Through many engaging activities within this space, you are offered practices and life skills including mindfulness practices, that if used regularly will aid in alleviating stress and improving quality of life

·        The topic of self-care is explored throughout the course.  This practice can dramatically improve your life and in turn, the lives of those around you

·        This course offers you opportunities to evaluate your own well-being, learn new skills and practices to improve it and also provides activities that allow you to look forward in a positive way to the challenges presented to you both professionally and personally in the future

This course is a calm space for you the teacher to pause, breathe and renew your energy following the busy school year

To transfer these skills and practices into the classroom:

·        The course also provides you with practical ideas and lessons that can be implemented directly into the classroom/resource room on a daily basis and under the SPHE curriculum 

·        You will be provided with lesson plans based on mindfulness practice and also on a specific step by step relaxation lesson plan template which can also be used to create your own lesson plans in order to integrate them with other curricular areas.
