Tuesday 5th April 2022 from 7pm-8pm

The transition from Primary to Secondary school is an exciting time in a young person’s life. This presentation has been designed to support you in preparing the student to make the best start they can in their new school.

Covid 19 has made this a very difficult year for us all. The classroom has become a difficult space for students and teachers.
