Friendship & Feelings

Starting secondary school is the beginning of an adventure, and a whole new chapter of your life. It’s a stage in your development where a lot of changes are taking place. Some will be exciting, some can be confusing and some may be a bit daunting.

Every part of your body and brain will be growing as you change school, develop new friendships and relationships, learn academically and socially and go through puberty. You might be impatient for some of these changes, but you may prefer some to happen more slowly; you might even resent some for a while.

Relationships and feelings are two big parts of your development – it’s important to understand and manage these two areas of your life.
