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.
Sonja Walker is an experienced high school teacher who has helped hundreds of children make a successful transition to high school. She’s also a mum who has successfully navigated the path from primary to secondary school with her own teen. Well known for her practical and common-sense approach to equipping parents with the resources they need to support their children, Sonja is an engaging, knowledgeable and entertaining speaker whose simple strategies and ideas always inspire her audiences.
