Life Skills Secondary

At secondary (ESO), students build on the knowledge and understanding, skills, attributes and values they have acquired and developed during the primary phase. Life Skills education acknowledges and addresses the changes that young people experience, beginning with transition to secondary school, the challenges of adolescence and their increasing independence. It teaches the knowledge and skills which will equip them for the opportunities and challenges of life. Students learn to manage diverse relationships, their online lives, and the increasing influence of peers and the media.

At this stage, students deepen knowledge and understanding, extend and rehearse skills, and further explore attitudes, values and attributes acquired during their earlier Life Skills education
