It’s normal for primary school pupils to feel anxious before their first day at secondary school.
They might not get much sleep the night before, worrying about everything from how to catch the school bus to whether they’ll know anyone when they get there.
I’m in the sixth form at Ysgol Bro Hyddgen in Machynlleth and still remember what my first day at secondary school was like.
With Fixers, and some of my classmates, I want to help make the transition between schools seem less daunting for Year 6 pupils going into Year 7.
We’re working on a resource that we hope will answer some of their questions, helping them to feel less scared and lost in the process.
