The content of the SPHE curriculum

The curriculum is structured in such a way as to treat the social, personal and health dimensions of the child’s life in an integrated manner. It provides for the development of a broad range of values, attitudes, skills and understanding relevant to the child’s health and wellbeing, to other people, and to the society in which he/she lives. This foundation will inform the child’s actions, behaviour and decisions in the many situations that he/she may encounter and have to deal with as part of everyday life and living.
