Post primary years is 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 is one of the principles that underpins junior cycle education, however it is something that we endeavour to provide to all year groups through various school activities. Wellbeing is about young people feeling confident, happy, healthy and connected and knowing where to get the supports if needed.

We have two guidance counsellors and a school chaplain available to support student wellbeing.
