Every year, more than 50,000 children in Ireland move from Primary to Post Primary education
It is a time of many challenges for children and for parents. For children, changes can be emotional, physical, and academic. They go from being senior in their Primary school to junior in their Post Primary School. They have to manage a broader range of subjects and subject options, more teachers, more homework, longer school days, new friends, bigger school and very often their parents’ anxiety. For parents their challenges can range from choosing the school that best suits their child’s needs, to issues such as subject options, bullying, new relationships, friendships, homework, finance, and their child’s anxiety.
