Transition Summer School 2021

Some of our newest students were selected by their Primary School Teachers to attend a Transition Summer School last week here at St Julie’s. They were able to take part in a variety of activities with the aim of easing Transition into Year 7 after what has been a very challenging year.

All of the attending students participated well and a number of new friendships were established. We are looking forward to welcoming them back along with all our new starters on September 2nd.

Some of the activities enjoyed by the students were: bread baking, gardening activities to enhance the school grounds and to include some sensory planting, outdoor games including rounders, table tennis, ‘Just Dance’ which was equally fun to take part in or watch, a Treasure Hunt round the school building, making ‘Oatie Bars’, art activities including acrylic paints on canvas, and a walk up to the local Walled Garden and Woods via Camp Hill.

We also had a few visitors during the week including our School Police Officer PC Mark Patterson who had the girls enthralled with his descriptions of working with the emergency services, and also representatives from our partner Mental Health Services who led a workshop on managing worries and anxiety.

See you all in September!
