Transitions- Home to Kindergarten to Primary to Secondary
Transitions occur in the moments where students are transferring from one learning institute to the next. All students go through transitions from home to kinder to primary school and to secondary school. Some students will go through more transitions than normal through changing schools in between primary or secondary school. Transition can be a scary event for children. Many things can change when transitioning to a new learning institute such as the environment, the people, the routines and the learning. It is important for students to have orientation days and buddy systems in place to help ensure transition is as smooth as possible. As teachers, it is important to remember that some students will react very differently to transitioning. Ensuring transitions are as smooth as possible is important to ensure students have a positive attitude to the school, the people and the environment.
