It is common for children to feel anxious about moving up to secondary school due to worries or fears about bullying, making friends, confidence, getting lost or fitting in.
During this transition period, we feel it is important to give children as much support, guidance & knowledge to help them with this important transition.
Remarkable Me is a 7 week program for children to support them with the big move up to secondary school.
Our expert support teams have worked with primary school children for over 10 years which is why were able to create the perfect 7- week program that offers the right amount of support, guidance & education before they move onto secondary school & the next important part of their life.
Children are then in a stronger position to make healthier decisions about friendship groups, are more resilient when exposed to new & challenging situations which then improves their confidence & self-esteem.
It’s a medical fact that symptoms of stress & anxiety can cause long term cognitive damage to a child’s brain because they are not yet fully developed.
Remarkable Me transitional support program is on a mission to get this program in as many primary & secondary schools as possible & give these young lives a fighting chance to succeed.
Lets make it happen together…
Remarkable Me Aims...
...to target all children that are experiencing stress or anxiety about transitioning up to secondary school.
We believe that using art, craft, music, drama & physical activity throughout each session can help awaken, inspire & encourage children to overcome hurdles, try new things, learn new skills, enhance their emotional literacy & develop their resilience.
THROUGHOUT THE 7 WEEKS...
We use many different creative art forms such as; Music & movement, drama, art & crafts & singing to enhance the learning, development & communication process.
These tools are used to aid the children in their journey of self-discovery & help to build a positive sense of self.
