Capuchino High School has been piloting its Mindfulness Space since the start of the school year. The purpose of this space is for students to be able to take a 10-15 minute break to ground themselves with mindfulness techniques, so they can return to class in a better mental space for learning. Participation in the Mindfulness Space can be initiated by either student request or teacher referral.
