Neil – your minutes silence! When I was teaching physics to 5th years including my twin sons about 12 years ago, for one lesson only I got the whole class to sit up straight, hands on knees, eyes closed and took them through deep breathing and relaxing technique for the lesson. These were highly motivated students but all of them saw the benefit and their studies did not suffer for that one class. So keep up your minutes silence. It has been very beneficial to me in my 4 years as Principal. I’m a lot calmer person than I was 20 years ago and a lot less stressed.
Great to have met you and keep up the positivity and the smiling eyes.
