Tundeworld program for your school that has been running successfully in other primary school.
This popular program provides a fun activity that develops children's coordination, concentration and agility, while developing their mind and body, also creating shared quality time with each other. Practicing tai chi and health qigong has an almost magical effect in health improvement.
Tai chi and health qigong for children are designed to be engaging as it provides simple movements and poses that both relax and strengthen the body whilst bringing calmness to the mind.
Each week children learn how to breathe with focus and how their breathing can assist them to find calmness. Deep breathing is used to transfer more oxygen to the brain allowing higher sensory processing to focus, concentrate, interact and learn more easily - at home and at school. Kids love to learn and they learn very fast especially when engaged in a fun activity.
How can kids learn this program easily?
· Sessions are intermixed with fun activities like games or stretching exercises which are easy to follow;
· We repeat learned movements which can be practiced at home or during school breaks;
· We use stories and imagery that capture children’s imaginations.
This program was run in RIDBC Thomas Pattison School one session per week. This school focused on improving strategies to manage stress and increase wellbeing for both staff and students.
The principal of the school stated that this program was able to offer a whole school approach that was suitable for their school body.
Also, the Educational and Developmental Psychologist highly recommended me as a Tai Chi teacher in school programs. She also emphasised that most students, including those with special needs related to academic or mental health, issues would benefit from the mindfulness of the practice of Tai Chi.
It was found that kids really enjoy learning it. Teachers and parents have also found great improvement in their children’s sport and academic studies after doing tai chi.
Please find attached the school Psychologist’s reference with click here and I can provide the principal’s also upon request.
TheTundeworld program is an excellent opportunity for kids and for your school.
