Pre, Primary and Secondary School Level


Kia ora. I'm Jase Te Patu.  I have been in the wellbeing industry for 30 years.

I have experienced, first-hand the cost of poor mental and emotional health. 5 of my friends have passed from suicide over the years, which has left a lasting impression. My own personal practices of yoga, meditation, and mindfulness have saved my life. This inspired me to share these beautiful skills and tools with the young learners of Aotearoa.

Whilst my trainers facilitate M3 in schools, my focus is on training our teachers throughout the motu. We ALL need the skills to regulate ourselves when stressed or in fight-or flight-mode, so my PLD sessions are practical, interactive, and self-sustainable. Book a session for your teachers today!


- What is M3 and how can it help at my school?

- An introduction to Mindfulness

- Mindfulness practices in the classroom

- HAUORA - Te Whare Tapa Whā - a 4-walled approach to wellbeing


“I have seen Jase speak in three different settings recently; to educators, parents,  and students. Jase’s authenticity and commanding presence constantly win over his audiences, and even those whom I would consider reticent about mindfulness are interested and asking questions by the end of Jase’s session. As someone trying to fight for the place of mindfulness in my school, Jase has been a huge asset in establishing the validity and value of mindfulness, particularly as it relates to the Te Whare Tapa Wha model, which we as a school use to guide our wellbeing programme. As an ambassador for this mahi, there is no one better that I have seen.” - Ben Arcus, Chaplain, Rathkeale College.

A very motivating and insightful presentation pitched just right,  I thought, for the audience, he “ held” us all safely through some very emotive issues. Definitely agree that it would be really helpful for our children. - Kaiako, KidsFirst Christchurch

Best PD I’ve had at EBIS. I think it was the benefit of having something tangible to take away with me in my kete - It has already had its benefits in my classroom - Adam Hart, Evans Bay Intermediate

Mind-blowing Mindfulness!!  This is one of the best presentations I have EVER been to.  Jase is an authentic human who shares his story in a way that is so relatable to our own individual stories.  The take-home kete of resources is so valuable and I know will be supportive of weaving mindfulness into my everyday practice so I can take the best of care of myself, and give my best to the tamariki and whānau I work with. - Kaiako, South Canterbury Kindergartens

"Jase delivered such a well-rounded and informative presentation. It was amazing how he encouraged teacher participation and listened to all we had to share. It would be wonderful if he could work with our Māori boys." - Wikus SwanepoelPrincipal, Evans Bay Intermediate

Thanks, Jase so much - your session was fabulous - really tied our day together - and we had already decided that we needed to explore Te Whare Tapa Whā as we wanted our wellbeing model for our school to be based on this, so it was perfect!!- Julie Cowan, Principal, Reremoana School
