The Personal Social Health Education (PSHE) program provides a variety of opportunities for students to develop their own self awareness and to build the social and emotional competencies necessary to manage positive relationships with others. This proactive program focuses on emotional and social literacy with the intention of enhancing our students well-being and enjoyment of the school environment. The course aims to create a positive impact on student performance and overall success.
