As previously mentioned, our priority was to get the senior students at both the primary and high school levels back to school as quickly as possible. While this is so, the Ministry is keen to ensure that students resume classes in conditions that are safe and healthy – free from mold and other hazards. To this end, the Ministry of Education has partnered with the Public Works Department and the Environmental Health Department and we are pleased to announce the reopening of the following schools and for the following students with effect from, Tuesday, 10th October 2017: Long Bay HighProvidencialesForms 1 and 2 H.

If a look at the piling dishes in the kitchen sink after a long day gives you a headache, just take a deep breath and plunge into action. New research has found that washing dishes with full concentration may calm the mind and reduce your stress.The study looked at whether washing dishes could be used as an informal contemplative practice that promotes a positive state of mindfulness —a meditative method of focusing attention on the emotions and thoughts of the present moment.

The control group, on the other hand, did not experience any benefits. Implications for these findings are diverse and suggest that mindfulness as well as positive affect could be cultivated through intentionally engaging in a broad range of activities, said the study was published in the journal Mindfulness.
