The number of students practising the Transcendental Meditation Programme at two schools in New Zealand continues to rise.

One school has 300 students age 13-18, and about 40 faculty, said Dr Raylene Lodge, who along with Dr Graeme Lodge, is National Director of New Zealand for the Global Country of World Peace.*

The programme began mid-year in 2009, she said, and before the year ended nearly half the staff and over 50 students had learned Transcendental Meditation.

The school year begins again this month, and Dr Lodge expects that about half the school will be practising Transcendental Meditation by the end of the first term.

The project has the support of Teachers of Transcendental Meditation, who are so dedicated to the project that they are living away from home in order to teach at the school, she said.

Please see Part I of this article about the second school in New Zealand offering Consciousness-Based Education with great success.
