PDST - PRIMARY HEALTH & WELLBEING WEBINAR SERIES

https://www.pdst.ie/primary/healthwellbeing

As pupils settle back into school in the first months of term, the Department of Education (DES) has invited teachers to prioritise curricular areas that enhance and develop their wellbeing.

Physical Education (PE) and Social,Personal, and Health Education (SPHE) are integral parts of the curriculum, which provide vital opportunities for the development of children’s wellbeing in the physical, social, emotional and intellectual domains. For this reason, schools have been encouraged to re-orientate their work with the curriculum and give greater time and attention to PE. 

This series of webinars aims to assist primary schools in supporting and enhancing pupil wellbeing, by showcasing the wide range of practical resources that PDST have developed for PE, SPHE and Wellbeing across the whole school community.

SSE DISTANCE LEARNING RESOURCES

https://www.pdst.ie/node/91

 

Social, environmental and scientific education (SESE) provides oppor- tunities for the child to explore, investigate and develop an understanding of the natural, human, social and cultural dimensions of local and wider environments, to learn and practise a wide range of skills, and to acquire open, critical and responsible attitudes. SESE enables the child to live as an informed and caring member of local and wider communities.

SESE takes place within, and contributes to, many areas of the curriculum. It thus contributes significantly to many aspects of the child’s development. Within this curriculum, SESE is presented under three subject headings: history, geography and science. Each of these areas has a distinctive role to play in enabling the child to explore and understand the natural, human, social and cultural environments in which he/she lives.
