Pupil Welfare

“A happy mind in a healthy body”

Adolescence is not always an easy time and living in a fast-paced, competitive, affluent urban world brings its own problems. Portumna Community School does not shy away from the challenges of the changing world and encourages a culture of openness and honesty about the complexities of growing up.

PCS provides a safe, respectful and thoughtful place for pupils to explore, learn and make mistakes in relation to themselves and others, guided by experienced teachers.

We foster resilience, respect, compassion, empathy, courage, adaptability and commitment.

At Portumna Community School, we take a holistic approach to pupil welfare that extends beyond the classroom. Here’s how we prioritize the well-being of our students:

Dedicated Support

We have a team of experienced counsellors who are readily available to provide emotional and academic support to our pupils.

Inclusive Environment

Inclusivity is at the heart of our school culture. We celebrate diversity and ensure that every pupil feels valued and respected.

Mental Health Initiatives

We offer programs and workshops that focus on mental health awareness and coping strategies to help students deal with stress and anxiety.

Physical Health

Physical well-being is equally vital. Our sports and fitness programs encourage an active and healthy lifestyle.

Strong Community

We foster a sense of belonging and community by involving parents, teachers, and students in various school activities.

Together, We Shape Futures

In Portumna Community School, we believe that pupil welfare is not an option but an imperative. It’s the foundation upon which we build brighter futures for our students. As we strive for excellence in academics, we also pledge unwavering commitment to the overall well-being of our pupils. Together, as a community, we nurture young minds, instill values, and empower our students to reach for the stars.
