How to help your child make a successful start to high school

Free parent seminar - How to help your child make a successful start to high school – Kids First Children’s Services

 

Help your child get organised and be ready to succeed in Year 7

Moving on to high school means big changes for kids (and families too!)

When your son or daughter moves from Year 6 to Year 7 in 2018 new teachers, peers and environments will be just part of their experience.

Your child will also face a new set of social and academic demands and expectations that may come as a somewhat daunting surprise.

At Kids First Children’s Services’ next free Community Service Seminar, you’ll receive practical advice, information and free resources that you and your child can use now, or keep for future reference next year.

We’ll share common-sense tips, free resources and ‘insider information’ so that you’re ready to help your child make a happy, supported and successful transition to high school in 2018.
