What are the opportunities and challenges for you as you make your way from primary to secondary school? What might help you make a successful transition through this time?
Making new friends and fitting in socially is especially important when you start secondary school. Students adapt to the middle years of schooling in different ways and your friendships may change as you develop a greater sense of yourself and the world around you. Your relationship with your parents and family may also change in some ways during the transition from childhood to adulthood.
