After some time away, Calm Kids returned last week for a large bunch of students who were glad to see it back. Calm kids is a session where Queenies kids can come in to the library (Friday lunch time) and engage in quiet, calm activities. The room is dimly lit, soft music plays, and the students have a range of mindful activities to engage in, such as colouring in, fine motor activities, or simply sitting amongst the calm and stillness.
Calm Kids is optional, and students can come and go as they please. It is a quiet place where we don’t talk, and it offers a ‘sanctuary’ to get away from the business and noisiness of school life.
Calm Kids will continue each and every Friday lunch time whenever possible.
