Meditation

In keeping with the ethos of St James Schools, the children practise regular pauses or times of quiet throughout the day to promote their appreciation and understanding of mindfulness.

Philosophy

St James cares for a child’s spirit, mind and body. All children study Philosophy to explore and challenge ideas in a respectful and inclusive way.
