SNOWFLAKE KIDS GET LESSONS IN CHILLING

Head helps 9-year-olds to beat the ‘daily grind’

- by ALEXAN­DER BROWN

SNOWFLAKE chil­dren as young as nine will now be able to med­i­tate at school as they strug­gle with the “daily grind”. Wor­ried

bosses at Long­wood Pri­mary Academy in Es­sex have set up a space for the young­sters to de-stress.

The kids can spend 30 min­utes a day lis­ten­ing to the ocean and for­est rain through head­phones.

Head­teacher James Hollins­ley said kids at many schools suf­fer poor men­tal health and added: “I’m con­fi­dent we’ll en­hance pupils’ state of mind.”

But for­mer Tory min­is­ter Ann Wid­de­combe stormed: “It’s ob­vi­ously not what any of the chil­dren have asked for, it’s non­sense. Chil­dren should fo­cus on work.”
