City of Kar­ratha and Pan­na­won­ica Year 6 stu­dents have learnt some in­sider tips for mak­ing the big step up into high school at the an­nual Next Steps schools con­fer­ence.

More than 300 pri­mary school leavers from eight schools flocked to Kar­ratha Se­nior High School on Novem­ber 17 for the Kar­ratha Ed­u­ca­tion Ini­tia­tive event, tak­ing part in work­shops on re­silience, team-build­ing, health, study skills and more.

They heard a pre­sen­ta­tion from lead­er­ship con­sul­tant Kate Lyon on how to look after them­selves and build good sup­port net­works in the tran­si­tion to high school.

Kar­ratha Se­nior High School Years 10-12 stu­dent well­be­ing co-or­di­na­tor Gina Marti­novich said stu­dents had re­ally en­joyed the va­ri­ety and in­ter­ac­tiv­ity.

“I think it’s try­ing to just leave a lit­tle bit of knowl­edge with them that they’re not alone,” she said.
