Mindfulness and Stress in the Learning Zone

Stress is a very real issue when it comes to exams. As part of a project commissioned by BBC’s The L.A.B. Scotland, Fablevision Studios has to made three films on ways of dealing with the issue.

The first film, which features a class from Cathkin Primary School, Rutherglen, looks at mindfulness and how this can help alleviate the incidence of such stress and encourage effective coping mechanisms.

The second film features Strathclyde University students coping with exam stress in the capable hands/paws of Paws Against Stress. These dogs know what they are doing, even if you don’t. What can a Norfolk Terrier do for you? You’d be surprised. Being relaxed buys you time to think.

Each of the three films will be made in the School News Report style and will feature a teenage mentor who has been through her exams and knows the stress that comes with them.
