Wellbeing

Promoting and enhancing the wellbeing of the whole school community is at the heart of school life at Presentation Secondary School Thurles and underpins all of its activities and interactions. As part of the school’s self-evaluation, there is ongoing consideration and monitoring of the school’s culture, relationships and policies to ensure that student wellbeing is being supported.

Junior Cycle

At Junior Cycle level, there is a co-ordinated approach to wellbeing, through the curricular aspects, CSPE, SPHE and PE. In addition to these curricular areas, a structured programme consisting of five modules: Transitioning to Post-Primary School; Stress and Anxiety; Personal Safety; Environmental Issues; and Bullying. This programme has been developed following consultation with all stakeholders: students, parents and teachers; with particular emphasis on promoting student voice in developing the programme.

Three specialist programmes are also provided: FRIENDS FOR LIFE, LIFT and Young Social Innovators: Junior Action Programme. FRIENDS FOR LIFE is a school based anxiety intervention and resilience-building programme. Leading Ireland’s Future Together (LIFT) is a programme focused on developing personal leadership qualities and abilities in each individual. The Junior Social Innovation Action Programme brings youth-led, team-based learning to Junior Cycle students and enables participants to explore social issues and understand social innovation as a way of addressing challenges we face today.

Senior Cycle

The wellbeing of senior cycle students is supported through programmes delivered by the Student Support Team, the Religious Education Department and the Guidance Team, including an academic monitoring programme.

The school also works in close co-operation with the National Educational Psychological Services (NEPS), TUSLA, the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) and other statutory and non-statutory agencies that support individual students experiencing difficulties in relation to their wellbeing
