EXTRA WEBINAR - Transition to Second Level - An Adventure and a Challenge.

Title. Transition to Second Level - An Adventure and a Challenge.

The transition from Primary to Secondary school is an exciting time in a young person’s life. It also comes at a key developmental stage, a fact not lost on parents as they come to terms with the arrival of the teenage years. Over the last 20 years I have played a key role in developing the transition programme for my own school, delivered our induction programme to incoming first years and supported parents through parent evenings.

An information pack supporting this webinar will be available to all participants.

Key areas addressed are 

  • Junior Cycle what’s new.
  • Supporting teens to manage change.
  • Identifying common areas of concern and how to prepare for them.
  • Trouble shooting and where to go for support.
  • Embracing change and being open to new opportunities.
