Naturalist?
Naturalist 
Not surprisingly, some aspect of the natural sciences will run through the Naturalists interests - from ecological awareness to nutrition and health. People with an interest in horticulture, land usage and farming (including fish) are Naturalists.

Some Naturalists focus on animals rather than plants, and may enjoy working with, training, caring for, or simply herding them. Other Naturalists will prefer working with the end result of nature's produce - the food produced from plants and animals. Naturalists like solving problems with solutions that show some sensitivity to the environmental impact of what they do. They like to see practical results, and prefer action to talking and discussing.

Junior Cycle - SPHE

Subject Group: Social
These subjects explore common issues faced by all people living in society. They develop the skills and knowledge used to manage personal resources and guide human behaviour.

Brief Description:

In Social, Personal and Health Education (SPHE) you learn about what might help you to make choices for a confident and healthy life. In SPHE class you will learn how to get on with your classmates better, as well as help each other to be healthy, safe and well.

SPHE is not formally assessed in the Junior Certificate examination.


How will SPHE be useful to me?

At the moment, not all schools offer SPHE after the Junior Certificate. However, there is likely to be a new SPHE course in Senior Cycle. In this course, you will be able to learn about making healthier choices for when you are in school and also when you leave school.
