Our online workshops

We are experts in school transitioning.  We have moved our evidence-based programme online to continue to facilitate parents and teachers that want to support their 6th class pupils as they school transition into 1st year.

The School Transitioning, Wellbeing and Me Workshop will look at the elements of wellbeing and each student will be empowered in developing their own resilience skills to help them on their journey into secondary school and third level.

Our Objective

The objective of the workshop is to enable students to begin to take ownership of their personal wellbeing and resilience through identifying stressors and establishing a plan for interventions for themselves that they can maintain while they make the school transition and beyond. The practical aspects of moving secondary school are also covered in part three of the workshop.

What Students and Teachers Say

6th Class School Transitioning Classroom E-Learning Course
“I thought the course was excellent. It was very easy to follow, and I like the way the content was split into different sections. It’s a very useful classroom resource. I also like the colours you have chosen for each slide/oral presentation. It was bright, easy on the eye and the class didn’t get bored or frustrated by any of the visuals. The course sounded like you were speaking to students rather than recording something. All in all, I thought it was brilliant.”

"Thank you! The two days were very informative and hopefully will serve to lessen the stress of those first few weeks in secondary school. O**** found it very helpful. Even if he takes just a few key points from the two days it will be a big help during the transition. We will all be using the triangle breathing!"

“Many thanks Dorothy for your presentation and interactive lessons in our school last week.
The children were really engaged in the workshop and the opportunity to identify and discuss their stresses in life.

They seemed to be surprised to learn that so many of them have similar difficulties and we were surprised to learn so many didn’t talk about their worries with others.
It was a great opportunity for the children to open up, identify and discuss their mental well being. A very important topic in today’s world! Thank You."
“It was really creative. It was a really nice way to learn about wellbeing. I thought how you did the timetable was good. It was nice to know that the others were feeling the same as me about going to secondary school”
Sixth Class Student

“I liked the workshop structure. It was a good mix of everything- working together, by ourselves, the videos were very good. I learned how to take care of my own wellbeing”
Sixth Class Student
