6th Class Primary School Students to 1st Year Secondary School

Making the Move- The Transition from Primary to Secondary School

The transition from primary to secondary school can often be a daunting experience for 6th class pupils. As teachers, we recognised that this can be a big jump for certain students and so we designed a one day course to make the transition for pupils an easier one. This course gives pupils a first hand account of life in a secondary school and what exactly to expect in September.

Students will have the opportunity to meet new friends who are in the same situation, boosting their confidence levels and diminishing those fears of entering into a new school environment. Most importantly, the students will have the opportunity to ask questions in an open and comfortable setting.

This course will explore the following topics:
✓Study Skills & Organisation
✓’Expelling’ Student Fears and Worries
✓The normal school day
✓Timetables, Subjects
✓Classroom Changes
✓Books and copies
✓Change of teachers
✓Lunchtime- the canteen
✓Study hall
✓School reports & exams
✓School bags & lockers
✓Extra- Curricular activities
✓Subjects and what to expect
✓Team building activities

Course runs from 9:30am-2pm.
