Some of the challenges faced by students entering secondary school include:
- New school environment
- New friends
- New syllabus
- New phase of life
Your child has spent the last 6 years getting used to their primary school, and now they’ll be going to a new school. Moreover, many of your child’s primary school friends may be posted to different secondary schools.
Meeting new people can be difficult, but it’s also an opportunity for them to form new, long-lasting friendships.
Your child will also be learning new subjects, including biology, chemistry, physics, geography and history. There will also be more subject choices, especially in upper secondary.
In this phase of school, your child will enter their teenage years and go through physical, emotional and mental changes. They will also begin to explore the different pathways available for them to fulfil their dreams and aspirations.
