Starting high school can be overwhelming for students as well as their parents and other family members. There are many reasons why this is so.
- a new campus
- new friends
- usually more students than primary school
- totally different timetable to primary school
- increase in amount of schoolwork
- new teacher for every subject
Soon after settling into the first week of Year 7, assessments and assignments can start piling up. Then comes end of topic tests, term tests, mid-year and final year exams.
