What is the Secondary School Survival Kit?

The Secondary Schools Survival Kit is an online transition programme that aims to equip students with essential skills for a smooth transition to their last 3 years of secondary school.

Who is it For?

It targets students who have just finished Year 8 and will be starting Year 9 the following autumn.

What will it do for me?

Students who are equipped with this kit will find it easier to transition through their last leg of secondary school.  The kit is presented in the form of a playlist.  Each record on the playlist launches a theme that will prompt a discussion around transition, change, celebrating self and friendships, and how to navigate the inevitable stresses associated with these years.  The Secondary Schools Survival Kit encourages students to look ahead and start building toward their future goals as individuals and as members of their respective communities.  On completion of the sessions, students are given a certificate of participation and the survival kit.
