Many of the 5th and 6th class students may already be familiar with the Primary Planet magazine. It is a children’s monthly newspaper style glossy magazine. It contains 40 pages of fresh, topical and up to date features each month.
The online version is jam packed with news, sport, entertainment, activities and competitions to children in a language they understand and in a manner they can easily relate to. It also encourages children to read and write for a purpose, providing opportunities for them to contribute to the magazine and engage with our readers.

Most parents will think, No way, there's no time for meditation in my life - and given how all-consuming and overwhelming parenting can often be, I can understand why.
And yet, if we consider the numerous benefits of meditation — of finding a little more spaciousness in our minds to be less reactive and more responsive; of learning what it means to be more present and engaged with our kids — then meditation can be viewed as an effective, rewarding parenting tool
Imagine the positive impact for the entire household, of being calmer, softer, more compassionate, and more content … and you need only meditate for as little as 10minutes a day.
Headspace is practical and designed to fit into our busy, stressful lives. Andy, the guy who created it and narrates the meditations is very easy to listen too!
Give it a go...it might just help a little!
