News & Events

Moving from primary to secondary school is a significant event in every child’s education journey.

While we have developed transition plans and programs to support your child, as a parent you also play an important role at home.

By preparing for and talking about the move, you can make a big difference to how well your child makes the transition. If you are well informed and knowledgeable about the move, you are better able to support your child.

A series of information sheets has been developed to help you and your child. These include frequently asked questions, checklists and practical tips are on the Department’s website.
