Staying Well

(Category: Key Skills Initiatives)
“Well-being is attained little by little, and nevertheless is no little thing Itself.” ― Zeno of Citium

This initiative aims to benefit learners while recognising that learners’ overall wellbeing must be supported alongside their intellectual development. Being healthy, being socially active and being able to take care of yourself and of others helps students become happy and confident. This key skill also helps young people to be positive and engaged in their learning.

You may engage with some of the strategies here: https://ncca.ie/en/resources/staying_well_april2015 to support your students staying well in your school. We particularly like a Healthy Eating Policy, why not use this initiative to promote healthy eating in your school!

Remember staying well includes being healthy, physical and active, being social, being safe, being positive about learning and being responsible, safe and ethical using digital technology.
