Wellbeing is now officially recognised as an important feature of the lives of students, through the new Junior Cycle. Scoil Aireagail has traditionally sought to provide its students with a positive, safe and caring environment. The Framework for Junior Cycle (2015) will help further embed wellbeing in our school where existing policies, together with our school’s culture and ethos, will all contribute to making wellbeing more visible to our students.
The Junior Cycle Wellbeing Guidelines (NCCA 2017) has helped inform Scoil Aireagail’s policy in this area. The guidelines states that “student wellbeing is present when students their abilities, take care of their physical wellbeing, can cope with the normal stresses of life, and have a sense of purpose and belonging to a wider community”.
