Transitioning from Children to Teenagers - A Talk for Parents

Important  Note: The PA facilitate this talk every 2 years. Parents of children in 5th class please note this talk will NOT be available next year. 

The transition from Primary school to Secondary school is one of those life events that most people can recall in some way or other.  The purpose of this talk is to outline the major changes involved for both children and parents and to provide some useful tips on how to adapt our parenting so that the experience can be undertaken with minimum stress - for the whole family! 

Tom Casey, Teen Counsellor, Crosscare, will facilitate a talk for parents in the school foyer on Tuesday 12th April at 8pm. Tom brings with him a lot of relevant experience and practical advice which we feel will be very beneficial for parents. The talk is aimed at parents with children in 5th and 6th class but all are welcome. Time: 8pm to 9.30pm with additional time available for questions.
