Post-Primary Entry Prep Summer Camp

Transition to Post Primary

The transition from primary to post-primary can be a stressful event for all students and their parents. To help with this transition “Kids Coder Club” in conjunction with “Computing at Schools” are running a one-week summer camp for students entering the Post-Primary Educational sector.

This camp is designed to ensure students are at ease with their entry to secondary school. All the essentials areas will be covered (see below). Students will be part of discussions along with seeing and taking part in practical demonstrations. The camp will host a talk by secondary school teachers and will also have the benefit of present secondary students attending as on-site mentors. Lastly, students will have a chance to meet and mix with new friends also entering the secondary sector and most importantly have loads of fun by engaging in fun outdoor activities.

Dates: Mon 19th to Fri 23rd August 2019

Time: 9:30 to 13:30

Location: Sarsfield GAA Club House, Parklane, Wexford.

Research has identified some of the main concerns of students as follows, of which we will cover in the course:

  • Losing the security of the primary school, their primary school teachers and the friendships they have there.
  • Making new friends; getting to know their post-primary teachers and being known by them.
  • Learning to fit in among new students of their own age and with older students.
  • Losing a sense of social standing and fearing they will be bullied – where they were the oldest students in the primary they will now be the youngest in post-primary.
  • Following new rules, fitting in and staying out of trouble.
  • Keeping up with the school curriculum.
  • Fearing a lack of supports in post-primary school.

Areas to be covered:

  • Overview of ICT in Post-Primary
  • Practical Post-Primary Computer Science & Overview of the Junior Cycle Short Coding Course
  • School rules and student behaviour – Plus using your phone in Post-Primary + Vsware/ Edmodo App
  • Bullying
  • Students and managing their work
  • Student councils
  • The curriculum
  • Junior cycle
