Act Belong Commit Mindful May House Colouring Competition


act-belong-commit_primary-logo_contained.jpgMindful May is a way to share the Act Belong Commit message of keeping active mentally, physically, socially, spiritually, and culturally. Mindful May encourages students and school staff to learn new skills to slow down and practice mindfulness. Mindfulness is the idea of learning how to be fully present and engaged in the moment with openness, curiosity and without judgement.


Act Belong Commit launched the 2021 Mindful May competition for all their Mentally Healthy Schools. Central to the competition was the 2021 theme: Act with Mindfulness for good mental health. To participate we designed the Mindful May House Colouring Competition.


There were 3 parts to the competition:

  • A4 colouring mandalas to submit,
  • A colouring book for each House to complete in the library, and
  • A mindful poster design to be submitted by each House around the theme - Act with mindfulness for good mental health.
