St Aidan’s Comprehensive School partners with Skilly to support the digital delivery of the Junior Cycle Wellbeing Programme.

Skilly is delighted to partner with St Aidan’s Comprehensive School to deliver its market-leading wellbeing programme to junior cycle students.

Commenting on the announcement, May Anne Smith, Principal at the school, said

Skilly has created an ideal product for students, teachers, and the school that combines the digital delivery of junior cycle wellbeing skills to promote self-reflective learning practices for our students that goes to the core of developing student wellbeing. We are excited to introduce this programme to our community and leverage many exciting features, including connecting parents with their students' wellbeing journey.

Commenting on the announcement, Shane Maguire, CEO of Skilly, said,

"Students cannot learn wellbeing skills from a textbook; they need to be owned by the student, repeated and practised". Our software makes that happen in schools in a safe and effective manner for the student. We look forward to our collaboration with Saint Aidans CommunityCollege to support the enhanced development of their students' wellbeing and life skills over the coming years.

Over 300 Junior Cycle students will be introduced to Skilly in the coming year. The solution incorporates the SPHE content and is fully integrated into Microsoft Teams. In the platform, we can capture and track students' engagement in wellbeing skills enabling them to learn and put the skills into practice in their daily lives.
