Breathing Space

Breathing Space is a peaceful time-out area in the Kahurangi Room. Students can use this area, with permission from their teacher, to calm down or if they need some quiet alone space. There are things there to help with emotional regulation, such as a hammock, weighted blanket, kinetic sand, mindful colouring and puzzles. There are also drawing and writing materials to help with expressing emotions. 

At lunchtimes, Breathing Space is staffed by Empathy Buddies; these are Year 8 students who are trained in reflective listening and who offer kindness and listening ears to any students who may feel down or left out. 

Breathing Space is in the Kahurangi Room, near the Library.
