Year 6 to 7 Transitions
The transition between Year 6 and Year 7 can be a difficult and daunting one for students as they move from the known to the unknown. This can be a time where young people start to disengage from education.
Equally, it is difficult for parents to know what they can do to assist in making this transition as smooth as possible for their child/ren.
In 2020, SELLEN aims to develop and pilot a program that will result in a facilitated training program that schools can access and deliver to their incoming parent cohort each year.
SELLEN is currently piloting a new Guide for Parents to assist them in developing the skills and understanding to support their children through the transition from Year 6 to Year 7.
The pilot is running in a partnership with Lyndhurst Secondary College and their feeder primary schools.
The Transition preparation program helped me understand what my child was going through and how I could help them settle in better.
