If your child's school has not subscribed to the Preparing in Primary for High School Program for Teachers, Students and Parents, you can still access the fantastic video series for your child. 

We all know that transitioning from Primary School to High School can be a challenging time for many students. However, for many students it is often only in the last few weeks of Year 6 that there is any discussion around this at school and some schools don't address transition at all. If your child's school doesn't offer a Transition to High School program, parents can still help their child at home with the Transition to High School Video series.

 

This comprehensive online video course covers what Year 6 students need to know to help make their move into high school a success. Full of practical tips, real-life examples and advice, students will feel ready and confident to take the next step.

 

Parents can work through the videos and worksheets program too, to learn strategies, tips, techniques and information that will support their child to make a smooth and successful start to high school.
