The new www.StepUp.ie website is online now. This website is for all the children, and their parents, who are starting secondary school after the summer.
The website is designed to be used by 12 and 13 year-olds and should answer a lot of the questions that they will have regarding the move to secondary school. There’s also a section for parents to have a look through. There is a lot of information on the site and it will be added to more as the summer goes on so encourage your child to come back to it a couple of times over the summer, rather than trying to go through all of it at once.
Whilst the website is designed to be used mostly by 6th class children, parents should have a look themselves and feel free to go through it with their children. If you know of any parents that might be interested in the site for their child, please let them know about www.StepUp.ie
in 2018 here in Ireland and it’s being supported by the HSE, Tusla, and local County Councils and Education and Training Boards. For more information check out www.planetyouth.ie.
