Last year we developed FLUX, a creative pack designed to help Year 6 leavers with the transition to high school. The packs were filled with activities designed to build coping skills, expression through art and learning daily essentials.
Over 2,000 packs were distributed throughout Rochdale last year and the response from both students and teaching staff was fantastic, so much so that we're making the boxes available again this year.
The activities are based around the common stationery most kids need when starting school - providing them with the tools they'll need as well as an opporunity to get used to them.
Many students may not get to visit their high school before leaving for the summer holidays so it may feel like an intimidating transition for them. Our aim with these packs is that they make the leap into high school feeling more at ease, more confident and more prepared.
