PSHE/ RSE & Citizenship @ De La Salle
The aim of our program at De La Salle is to enable and encourage all of our students to acquire the skills, understanding and key knowledge they need to thrive as individuals in all aspects of their life and to become active and responsible citizens who contribute to our society.
At the centre of all that we do as a faith and Lasallian community, is the understanding that each human person is made in the image and likeness of God. Our curriculum therefore, underpins the Catholic ethos and Mission of the School and is a catalyst for the School’s principal role of teaching our students to grow and flourish as responsible Catholics and Lasallians in our society.
PSHE/ RSE and Citizenship is embedded across the curriculum in all subjects studied at De La Salle and is also an integral part of a wide range of activities which are carried out on a day-to-day basis.
