Pause Breath Smile is a special programme which teaches the basic mindfulness and gratitude teachings with children aged 5 - 12 years of age. Grant Rix co-founder of Pause Breath Smile shares the background of the kaupapa, its progress and goals. Grant says that much research has gone into this programme and that he would like to see this in all schools. PBS is a tool for teachers to help support their students. A goal is to reach half a million tamariki as they have had a lot of stress and pressure just like the adults in the last 18 months. Grant also mentions that the main model for PBS is the Māori holistic wellbeing model of Te Whare Tapa Whā.
