Wellbeing at St Patrick’s Primary School
Children and young adults are born contemplative but in our busy world we are bombarded from an early age with noises, stimulus and a message to keep busy. The aim of our Christian Meditation programme is to teach children the essence of Christian Meditation, which is to find God in stillness, silence and simplicity. Or as the Old Testament says: “Be still and know that I am God”

Parent's Guide - Grief & Loss
Growing up is an ongoing process of change that involves losses as well as gains. For children changes such as starting childcare, school, sleeping over at a friend’s house, changing classes and teachers, or losing a pet, a friend or a family member all bring new challenges and new learning. Depending on the support children receive and how these early losses are dealt with, children can learn to manage and deal with the losses that will happen throughout their lives.
