A Lust For Life
Schools Programme

Providing future generations in Ireland with the resources to be effective guardians of their own minds

About The A Lust For Life Schools Programme

The A Lust For Life Schools Programme is a 10 week teacher-led programme which aims to build resilience, increase wellbeing & enhance the emotional literacy of 1st to 6th class school children. Throughout the ten lessons, children creatively learn about their wellbeing and self-care with content that is rooted in psychology, has been written by educational specialists and created by children for children. The Programme includes lesson plans, learning material, a Netflix-style gallery of engaging videos, and much more, all designed to increase & expand pupils understanding of feelings and emotions, and create a more compassionate, happier school environment.

As a result of the programme in PE for example they are being much more mindful of each other. One of the boys is very anxious/nervous and the stronger boys have started encouraging him and getting him involved! The boy has since progressed, now he’s going swimming, he’s more vocal and he likes PE now!

The pupils 100% benefited from the programme After the ALFL programme they did a mindfulness programme, and the mindfulness teacher said this class were way ahead of other classes – much more open and took it all in. She couldn’t believe how far ahead they were.

The children and I loved the programme, it was very user-friendly with very clearly planned out with precise objectives. It’s one of the best and most effective programmes I’ve used since I started teaching 19 years ago!

I love how the lessons are available to print so easily, along with the lesson support sheet and lesson slides. Everything is so accessible at the click of a button - which is so important in a busy classroom.

Niamh Lawless - St Peters National School

Friendships change a lot in 3rd and 4th class and it’s been great to have the videos and programme to refer to.
