Clare Youth Service smoothing the move to secondary school


CLARE Youth Service are helping to smooth the move to secondary school for sixth class pupils. CYS are offering a new transition to first year programme for students in schools across Shannon and Ennis. The aim of the programme is to address many of the concerns and issues experienced by those making the move to secondary school.  There are limited spaces available.
“This programmes aims to provide a safe space for the young people to have fun and explore the changes that lie ahead of their move to secondary school.  The programme covers things such as hopes and fears for the coming year, reading timetables, taking notes and good sleep habits among other things. There is also an emphasis on tips for minding our minds and our wellbeing,” explains a spokesperson for CYS.
The young people taking part will also get to sample a selection of Clare Youth Service activities such as the very creative Scribble Bots! The programme runs over two days in the Respond! Building, Rineanna in Shannon and the Junction Youth and Community Building in Ennis. There are two options for young people, Thursday July 15/Friday July 16 and Thursday July 23 /Friday July 24 with a choice of two morning or two afternoon sessions.
