The overall aim of the programme is to have a positive impact on the lives of pupils, through three specific goals:

  • for students to feel less anxious about transition
  • to equip young people with skills to better manage the new secondary school environment
  • to develop their friendship skills

And of course to enjoy socialising and playing active games!  Take a look at our gallery of photos from previous years.
