Supporting the health and wellbeing of learners and educators

Educators, schools, school systems, and universities across the globe are beginning to pursue mindfulness programs as a way to support the health and wellbeing of learners and educators in an increasingly busy and stressful world. England and India have implemented large-scale mindfulness programs, and the United States Department of Education has invested $3 million in studying mindfulness in schools in Chicago.

Beyond K-12 institutions, top-ranked universities, including Harvard, Yale, Columbia, and Cambridge, offer regular mindfulness courses to students and the wider community to reduce stress and support wellbeing and success from the inside out.

In Lebanon, mindfulness practices and programs are just beginning to develop.

Our mindfulness program is one of the key ways that we aim to fulfill our mission to support the balanced development of the students in our care.

Did you know we offer the PYP in French?

Eastwood offers the PYP in French due to the significance of the French language to Lebanon’s history, culture, and present day affairs, and due to the rise and growth of French on the global stage. Speaking one of the leading languages of business, education, science, technology, commerce and trade is a form of power and access to greater opportunity, and we aim to provide that power and opportunity to students.
