Mr John Quinn joined College in 2017 in the new role of Director of Wellbeing and Positive Education. John will lead a three year implementation that will see positive education embedded across programmes both inside and outside the classroom.

Our commitment is to work with our students, engage in all aspects of their education, encourage, motivate and support them as they develop the skills and attributes they need to thrive. Good mental health is a prerequisite for effective learning. The Centre for Positive Education and Wellbeing brings positive psychology and best teaching practice together, to promote good relationships, foster resilience and encourage positive lifestyle choices.
