    The Healthy Minds Curriculum has been taught to 11,000 students across 34 schools over 4 years, from ages 11-15.

    This half day event will share the positive impact the teaching and learning has had on students and teachers.

    We will hear directly from schools, teachers and students involved in the programme as well as leading figures in education, research and from business.
