Made with Padlet

The junior cycle years are a critical time in young peoples’ lives. Students are exposed to a range of influences and require support to make positive responsible decisions relating to their health and wellbeing and the wellbeing of others.

Wellbeing in junior cycle is about young people feeling confident, happy, healthy and connected. Wellbeing is one of the principles that underpins junior cycle education. It is also reflected in a number of the statements of learning, including the following:

The student:

  • Has an awareness of personal values and an understanding of the process of moral decision making
  • Takes action to safeguard and promote his/her wellbeing and that of others
  • Is a confident and competent participant in physical activity and is motivated to be physically active
  • Understands the importance of food and diet in making healthy lifestyle choices
  • Has the awareness, knowledge, skills, values and motivation to live sustainably
  • Values what it means to be an active citizen, with rights and responsibilities in local and wider contexts.

Wellbeing is also incorporated within a number of the key skills, in particular Staying Well, Communicating, Working with Others and Managing Myself.

In Griffeen Community College we will equip our students with the necessary skills to overcome obstacles and develop their emotional intelligence. Wellbeing will provide learning opportunities to enhance the physical, mental, emotional and social wellbeing and resilience of students, and to enable students to build life-skills and to develop a strong sense of connectedness to the school and to their community. It will also emphasise the role that students play in their family, community and society in general. Furthermore, it will complement the contribution that the family, the community and relevant agencies make to supporting student wellbeing.

To achieve this we use a holistic approach where aspects of health and well-being permeate every facet of school life. For example, we will promote physical and mental wellbeing with our extra-curricular timetable.

We place a strong emphasis on healthy, nurturing relationships with our use of restorative practice
