Wellbeing is at the core of our school’s ethos. Here in Patrickswell National School, we aim to provide evidence-informed approaches and support, appropriate to need, to promote the wellbeing of all children in our school. Wellbeing is comprised of many interrelated aspects including being active, responsible, connected,
resilient, appreciated, respected and aware (DES & NCCA, 2017).
Wellbeing is present when a person realises their potential, is resilient in dealing with the normal stresses
of their life, takes care of their physical wellbeing and has a sense of purpose, connection and belonging to
a wider community. It is a fluid way of being and needs nurturing throughout life. (WHO), 2001).
