Wellbeing

Here at Kilrush Community School, the wellbeing of both students and staff have always been a priority. We aim to create a school environment which supports the social, emotional and physical wellbeing of the whole school community.

The school’s Code of Behaviour and policies are in place to safeguard student’s wellbeing and are reviewed on a regular basis.

A whole-school approach means that wellbeing is promoted and supported across all subjects and classrooms. Wellbeing forms part of the curriculum as a stand-alone subject in 1st year. Other subjects within the Wellbeing Programme include SPHE, CSPE, Guidance and PE. These form part of the new Junior Cycle programme which places a large emphasis on wellbeing as part of the curriculum.

The Pastoral Care team play a significant role in supporting the needs of students. For more details on this click here.

A variety of events throughout the year also promote wellbeing across the school community. For example:

  • Cyber Safety Talks
  • School visits e.g. Community Garda
  • Stand Up Week
  • Mental Health Week
  • Christmas Concert
  • Retreats
  • School Trips

There are many opportunities for students to get involved in school life and develop skills that promote both their own wellbeing, as well as the wellbeing of others. Such opportunities include:

  • Choir
  • Sports Teams
  • Mindfulness & Meditation
  • Student Council
  • Junior St Vincent DePaul
  • Retreats & Team Building Days
  • Christmas Concert

During lockdown and school closures our student council made a video to highlight how we can incorporate the 5 ways to wellbeing into our lives. Click here to watch.
