Description

The Welcome to Well-Being programme is a multi-year programme for children from Junior Infants to First Class. It is designed to enhance children’s well-being across all dimensions – social, emotional, spiritual, physical and mental. Enhancing children’s well-being can lead to a wide variety of other successful outcomes including increased academic performance, better relationships and increased resilience – (Waters, 2011; Park & Peterson, 2008 )

The programme is based on Positive Psychology, which is the science of well-being. It is designed to be implemented as part of the SPHE curriculum.
