Welcome to F.C.J. Student Wellbeing page.
We, in F.C.J. Secondary School, put Student Wellbeing at the centre of all we do. Student Wellbeing is crucial to your child reaching his/her potential during their school years. Students learn about wellbeing through specific areas of the curriculum and various Wellbeing events and initiatives that are organised in school to develop awareness, knowledge and skills about Wellbeing.
They learn for Wellbeing when their whole experience of school life, including all the day-to-day interactions both within and beyond the classroom, is respectful and caring. Thinking about learning for Wellbeing requires that we consider not only what students learn but also how they learn it. Learning for Wellbeing can be nurtured in all subjects and by all teachers.
The Framework for Junior Cycle (2015) states that “The Junior Cycle years are a critical time in young peoples’ lives. Students are exposed to a range of influences, including peer pressure. They require support to make positive responsible decisions relating to their health and wellbeing and the wellbeing of others. Wellbeing in Junior Cycle is about young people feeling confident, happy, healthy and connected.”
Student Wellbeing is at the heart of the vision of a new Junior Cycle and at the heart of everything F.C.J.
