MINDUP™ CELEBRATES ITS FIRST YEAR IN IRELAND

It is almost a year to the day since educators Steve Lane and Breda Kyne brought MindUP™ to Ireland. Grounded in neuroscience and positive psychology, the signature programme of The Hawn Foundation, the charity founded by actress, author and children’s advocate Goldie Hawn, has been quietly changing the world of education from the grass roots up since 2003. In what was supposed to be a ‘quiet pilot year’ for Ireland, in which MindUP™ was trialled in just two schools, will soon end with six schools implementing the programme, three in Galway and three in Dublin.
