About

Preparation for Adult Life (PAL) educates students about issues of a personal, social, health and economic nature. PAL is an integral part of the curriculum that aids pupils in raising their self-respect and self-awareness, whilst encouraging and enabling them to become engaged members of their communities - both in and out of school. Additionally, PAL teaches students to be accountable for their actions as a citizen.

 

Fundamentally PAL covers all the aspects of a holistic education which contribute to the overall wellbeing and success of our students.
