Let us thank all those who teach in Catholic schools. Educating is an act of love; it is like giving life.

Pope Francis

Introduction

The Flourish programme is an RSE resource for use in Catholic Primary Schools on the island of Ireland. It aims to view the subject through a Catholic lens, fostering respect for self and others and helping the child, with the support of their family, to develop a moral compass. It consists of four lessons per class per year and is based on reflective practice as well as parental involvement. It is designed to be used in conjunction with the Department of Education RSE programme and has many integration points in the Primary Curriculum.
