Transition to High School

Our Year 6 Transition to High School program targets the emotional well-being of young people moving from primary school to high school. It is delivered during term 4 to year 6 classes in all five primary schools in Kiama Local Government area.

We highlight positive and realistic situations a young person would encounter at high school and coping mechanism for stress, finding supportive networks, and where and how to seek help.

Our program covers:

  • stress and how to identify the symptoms
  • resilience skills
  • information about SENTRAL and how to access our support services when needed
  • information about other support services
  • positive aspects of high school that students can look forward to
  • how to make the most of social media and what to do if something goes wrong
  • tips for navigating new friendships.
