Several schools in New Zealand have introduced the Quiet Time programme, including the Transcendental Meditation Technique, to staff and students, with very positive results.
At one school, beset with many difficulties (including 18 principals in 25 years), every staff member opted to participate in the Transcendental Meditation (TM) Programme after hearing an introductory presentation.
One week after the students learnt TM, parents were commenting on the 'overwhelmingly positive' changes in their children. Many of the students' families are now planning to learn the technique.
The students, ranging in age from 5 to 12 years, are more settled in class, can concentrate better on their school work, and behave better on the playground, said teachers in amazement.
To learn more about the Quiet Time programme and the benefits of the Transcendental Meditation Technique for reducing stress in the school environment, improving academic performance, and increasing students' well-being, see www.tmeducation.org.
