Transition to High School Curriculum


For many children, the conclusion of their Primary Schooling is an exciting yet also somewhat stressful time as the impending graduation draws closer, as does the reality of stepping up into High School. For some however, particularly those with older siblings, the transition into High School isn’t so burdensome, as they have a reasonable grasp of what they are in for. For others however, it can be quite an unsettling period, particularly as the end of the school year rapidly approaches and the reality of leaving their Primary Schooling approaches.
Those first few weeks and months of beginning High School can be quite daunting for students – particularly as they grapple with a brand new timetable, a variety of different teachers, sometimes varied expectations, new subjects, coupled with the fact that many are beginning puberty and are coping with a myriad of body changes at the same time.
