Social, Personal and Health Education (SPHE) is offered at Junior Certificate level, from years 1-3 inclusive and is an integral part of the Wellbeing programme in our school.
SPHE in junior cycle education supports the personal development, health and well-being of young people and helps them create and maintain supportive relationships. The aims of SPHE are to enable students to develop skills for self-fulfilment and living in communities, to promote self-esteem and self-confidence, to enable students to develop a framework for responsible decision-making to provide opportunities for reflection and discussion and to promote physical, mental and emotional health and well-being. The SPHE programme in Coláiste Chríost Rí reflects the unique ethos of the school. To be effective, a positive school climate and atmosphere must support it. A supportive whole school environment is one where people feel valued, self-esteem is fostered, fairness and tolerance are evident, high expectations are the norm, those having difficulty are supported, communication is open, effort is recognised, difference is valued, conflict is handled constructively, initiative and creativity is stressed and social, moral and civic values are promoted.
