Personal Social Health and Economic Education (PSHEE) is taught from 1st Year to Upper Sixth at an age-appropriate level.
To prepare Upper Sixth leavers for their next life chapter in the wider world, the students cover a broad range of topics from how to handle their finances and wellbeing, to spotting dangerous or illegal behaviours.
Recently, the students discussed conflict management and and how to resolve disagreements without it getting out of hand. Suggestions included remaining calm, giving space to each other, listening, and avoiding the temptation of making it personal.
The lesson then moved on to forced marriage and honour based violence, and how this denies some women of basic human rights and perpetuates false stereotypes of women.
