This online program was developed after Breathe Project worked face to face with 55,000 students and teachers across 135 schools in Australia and New Zealand. It is an all-inclusive, accessible series for primary school teachers to bring Mindful Breathing in their classrooms. A results-based wellbeing practice, supporting students (and teachers alike) to better manage their own emotions and behaviours, while reducing stress and anxiety. This program is aligned with the Australian Curriculum, including General Capabilities (Personal & Social Capability) and Health and Physical Education (Personal, Social & Community Health).
Program structure & method delivery
This program consists of a five-week series, where each week has a 10-12 minute classroom video and optional in-class activity guided by the lesson plan. All integration support resources are supplied. The series includes weekly videos, in-class activities, lesson plans, integration tips and resources including guided breathing audios and posters. The weekly videos are designed to engage and entertain, while educating students and teachers in one and eliminating pre-class preparation time for teachers.
