Massage Workshop

A number of classes have been following the Massage in Schools Programme this term and more classes will be learning about massage in the Spring Term. Here are some quotes from the year 1 and 3 children about how they think the massage movements they have learnt will help them:

“Massage helps me to feel calm and relaxed.”

“I can give my mum a massage if she’s tired.”

“I love giving a massage and receiving a massage. It’s fun and relaxing.”

Thanks to the parents who came along to the Introduction to Massage workshop this week. Click here to view the presentation

What is mindfulness?
