More information about the event:
Graham Richmond is a secondary school teacher and has given many parent talks over the last few years, helping parents to prepare themselves and their children with the transition to secondary school.
He will cover several areas that arise as children move from primary to secondary school, some of which include
- The physical transition (size of new school, transport, timetables, books/iPads, numerous teachers and homework/study).
- Extra-curricular activities and the positive/negative impact they may have.
- Physical & mental health.
- The role of technology and the social changes/temptations that may arise.
