Why do schools need to provide support for transition to High School?

Transitioning from Primary School to High School should be an adventure full of exciting opportunities. But for many students it can also be an overwhelming time filled with challenges.

If students are not fully prepared to deal with the challenges and new ways of doing things at High School, it can result in a rocky start to their High School years, impacting them academically, socially and emotionally.

We know schools and parents are working hard to support their Year 6 students during this time of transition, however not all parents have the knowledge and expertise they need, and teachers can struggle to find the time to develop a comprehensive transition program in addition to their existing teaching load.

The good news is that this Guide takes the hard work out of the process for everyone. The Preparing in Primary online guide is the perfect Transition to High School program that addresses the needs of Teachers, Parents and Students. This whole-school approach ensures that students have the best opportunity to transition to High School smoothly and confidently.

Pricing is based on the number of Year 6 classes (Primary Schools) or Year 7 classes (High Schools) at your school. Signing up your school takes only a few minutes, so subscribe for your school today.

Are the Books for Boys, Girls or Both?

Missy Moo is a young girl however she is not a 'girly girl' - she has some 'tomboyish' qualities too. The other two main characters in each story are Missy Moo's best friends, Sam (a boy) and Zara. I've tried not to stereotype the characters - for example in one story Sam attends ballet classes with the girls and in another story Zara is the star player on the mixed boys/girls basketball team.
