An evening of Calm Activities with Bucksmore in Tonbridge School

By popular demand from the students – who wanted calming activities to help them wind down from their demanding academic curriculum – counsellors put their heads together and used their talents to offer an evening of calm activities. Mr Ronan offered interpretative portrait painting, but with a humorous approach; Ms Tereza offered yoga outside – a widely popular choice! And I (Ms Eliza) offered my ‘Landscape Painting and Meditation’ workshop.

Young people are becoming more and more familiar with the concept of mindfulness as a way to be more present and deal with the challenges and demands of an increasingly complex and fast-paced world. Personally, I was very pleased with the outcomes of the workshop as after meditating, sipping on some herbal tea and painting a landscape designed by them, the students seemed to be feeling more refreshed even though it was close to 9 pm!

Students are engaging really well with the academic side of Bucksmore, dedicating real effort to their group projects and producing excellent presentations; however, they are aware that self-care and relaxation is also a part of their experience. Overall, feedback from the students told us that these activities were a success, as they even asked to have ‘calm activities’ once per week.
