What is CSPE?

Civic, Social, and Political Education is taught to all Junior Certificate students. It aims to help your child to become actively involved in your community, your country and the wider world.

C.S.P.E will help your child to become a citizen who knows their rights and responsibilities. They will learn about law, democracy, development, the environment, stewardship, dignity, and how everyone on the earth depends on each other some way.

Here are the 7 key concepts of CSPE:
