new school year begins in September and
there is an air of anxiety, particularly amongst parents, for those young
students who will be making their way from primary to secondary school.
Teachers and pupils are also anxious about how the transition from primary
to secondary school will affect some students. Not only will the new
students have to contend with new schools, new class mates, subjects,
time tables and teachers, they will also have to learn how to manage
their time more effectively in order to keep up academically. The Federation
is here to help.
Not every student can stand these pressures. Youthline
2777 8899 held
a press briefing this week, where Federation staff discussed adjustment
counselling, teachers spoke about school support programmes and students
shared their own experiences of preparing for the transition. The Federation's
Youthline 2777 8899 is there for anyone who needs help. All students
are encouraged to call and speak to someone who can help.
