Wellbeing includes social, emotional, physical, spiritual, intellectual and environmental aspects. Learning in Wellbeing focuses on the students’ journey across all aspects of wellbeing. Six indicators describe what is important for young people’s wellbeing.

  • Active
  • Responsible
  • Connected
  • Resilient
  • Respected
  • Aware

These indicators are not seen as goals or targets to be reached. The journey towards wellbeing is never complete.

Wellbeing Subjects

CSPE aims to inform, inspire, empower and enable young people to participate as active citizens in contemporary society at local, national and global levels, based on an understanding of human rights and social responsibilities.

Students engage in an Action Project to build a Basic Needs Basket for a homeless person. This involves researching the difference between needs and wants, identifying basic needs and becoming active, empathetic and aware citizens.

SPHE this short course aims to develop students’ positive sense of themselves and their physical, social, emotional and spiritual health and wellbeing. It also aims to build the capacity of young people to develop and maintain healthy relationships.

Ethical Education involves exploring different worldviews and beliefs, considering ethical dilemmas and the process of ethical decision making. Ethics develops the skills of critical thinking, discussion and debate. Students explore, question, understand and reflect critically on their own values, beliefs, worldviews and those of others. They develop their skills to communicate effectively and respectfully as well as to act ethically.

Ethical Education gives the unique privilege to hear and share deep philosophical conversations with students in a respectful and safe environment where equity of voice is valued.
