Feedback from the students who attended a transition workshop
“It was useful to learn about diaries and managing time because if I had a big amount of work and I didn’t know that, I would get very stressed”.
“Learning about using a planner will help me more organised and by using it my work can be more detailed and not rushed”.
“Amanda’s presentation gave me a lot of ideas to think about so I can now prepare for secondary school”.
“The things I learnt the most were about having an effective study area and breaking tasks down into smaller tasks”.
Vicki McCormack, Transition Teacher at Moonee Ponds Primary School
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the very informative session on Student Success Systems that you organised and presented to our year six students. The session was extremely beneficial to the students as they start transitioning to secondary school. It was obvious that you were extremely well prepared and had done your ‘homework’ on the skills students need and tips to get them organized. Students and parents have made comment about the session at end of year interviews. Thank You”
Parent from “Getting Organised for Transition Presentation” Moonee Ponds
“My son told me he thought your presentation to the students was extremely helpful and that he felt much more organised for high school now. As a parent I thought the handouts were great, succinct and to the point. The tips for parents in particular were a useful reminder to follow up on now and in the new year. I love that my son is feeling less anxious after your presentation. Thank you for the positive impact it has had on both of us.”
