- Personal Wellbeing
- Financial Capability
- Progressing Learning
Life skills encompasses personal, social, health and economic education (PSHE Education). The program is planned to give students the opportunity and experiences which help young people to grow and develop as individuals.
Personal Wellbeing helps young people to embrace changes, feel positive about who they are and enjoy healthy, safe, responsible and fulfilled lives.
Students learn how to recognise and manage risks, take increasing responsibility for themselves, choices and behaviours: students are encouraged to communicate their skills, attitudes and qualities to build confidence and self-esteem. They identify and articulate feelings and emotions, learn to manage new situations and maintain effective relationships with a wide range of people.
"We have fantastic facilities and engaging units of work to encourage students to develop into successful learners who enjoy learning and make significate progress."Andrea Leaman - Learning Support
