Stepping Up to Secondary

This is a fun interactive induction programme for incoming first year students. Going from being the big fish in sixth class at primary school to the small fish in the big pond of secondary school is a big change in a child’s life. The enormous challenge facing first-year is making friends and personal organisation.

Our Stepping Up to Secondary is designed to make the transition from primary to secondary school as easy as possible by providing activities and exercises on making new friends. Friendships help children develop important life skills like getting along with other people and sorting out conflicts and problems. Children with these skills are less likely to have social and emotional difficulties later in life. During this workshop students will be up on their feet working through ice-breakers, teambuilding, critical thinking, and networking activities. These activities are fun and have high impact in a visual way. We will encourage the students to develop a drive to succeed and have a “can do” attitude, move out of their comfort zones, remaining on task, be fully engaged as all activities are short punchy dynamic and stimulating.
