Hour-long Circle Times once a week and 20 to 30 minute Morning Meetings help students go deeper into the complexity of their emotional, social, and global understandings. During these sessions, children continue to learn more intricate mindfulness and conflict resolution techniques, along with beginning to explore the larger socio-cultural landscapes around them. These experiences are then incorporated into their expeditionary subject classes.
Additionally, Morning Meetings are an engaging way to start each day and build a strong sense of community by allowing every student to feel acknowledged by their peers and the teacher through a variety of team-building and sharing activities. Circle Times and Morning Meetings are also utilised for teachers and children to problem-solve and communicate on issues they are facing, thereby contributing to a positive and empowered school culture.
