The transition between Primary School and High School can be a tough one, but it doesn’t have to be. With the right strategies in place, times of transition can be made a lot easier.
We spoke to Headspace to talk about what you or your child can do during this time. Here’s what they recommended:
Feeling stressed or anxious when under pressure is a common response, but it is still important to maintain a healthy social and emotional well-being.
The switch from Primary School to High School can be stressful for a number of reasons including an increase in homework, new friend circles and different teachers and classes.
Headspace said it is important to change your self-talk, and make it positive when you begin to feel stressed.
“Replace your negative thoughts with more realistic ones. Try to look for a more rational spin on your situation or think of strategies to tackle your problems rather than giving up hope”.
If you’re looking for some more advice on tackling back to school anxiety, Beyond Blue has some advice here.
You can find some general information on transitions here to understand the importance and impacts of these times.
