Our Collaboration with Smiling Minds and Dulux

Earlier in 2021, St Joseph's was chosen by Smiling Minds and Dulux to collaborate on a mindful space, to be shared nationwide in a wellbeing toolkit for schools. Click through to see how our space was created and how our students LOVE their mindful garden!

The team from Smiling Minds visited our school and met with staff and students to discuss transforming part of our 'Secret Garden' into a 'mindful space'.
With the help of parents, we chose to focus on a space that linked to the senses. The team from Dulux, in collaboration with Smiling Minds, created a palate of colours especially for our school and designed a beautiful mural for our garden.
With help from parents (especially Courtney and Adrian) the garden came to life with the teams from SM and Dulux providing the concept and resources for the makeover.
After a lot of hard work, the garden was ready for students to enjoy- and for our new Dulux dog to play in!
Thank you to Smiling Minds, Dulux, Courtney, Adrian and the SRC for our new mindful space.
