Secondary schools

Moving from primary school to secondary school, is a big transition for students. For some students it can be a time full of excitement, and anxiety for new experiences but for others it can be a challenging experience.

The work that students experience in secondary school builds on what they learned in primary school, this gives them more advanced knowledge about many academic subjects. The increase in work load in secondary school is what makes it a bit more challenging for some students. These challenges encourage students to work extra hard, which results in them appreciating certain subjects or discovering a passion for a particular subject.

Secondary schools have teachers and tutors who are available to assist students that are overwhelmed with their academic work. Extra lessons are available for students who require more detailed academic assistance. Students in secondary school will get to experience more independence than they did when they were in primary school. This gives them a better feel of what its like to work hard and be responsible for themselves.

In secondary schools, students have more extra-curricula’s than what they had in primary school. This makes secondary school a great time for students to explore their interests and try new things. These extra-curricular activities will help students develop essential skills such as time management skills.
