  1. Talk About What To Expect

Communication is key – spend some time together talking about what a typical day in primary school will be like, and ask your child how they feel! Encourage them to voice out any concerns they may have when it comes to their first day at a “big school”.

  1. 告訴他們你的期望

交流是關鍵-花點時間和孩子溝通,問問他們覺得小學生活如何,感受如何!鼓勵他們說出自己的想法,特別是第一天去到學校的時候。

 

  1. Attend School Orientation Together

Most schools hold an orientation session before classes officially start. Go together with your child and get a feel for the school – the classrooms, stairs, washrooms, playground, etc. Don’t forget to ask your child what they think during the visit, and to share their feelings. Who knows, you and your child may even meet some new friends along the way!

  1. 陪孩子一起參加宣講會

大部分學校會在正式開學前舉行宣講會,記得一定要陪你的孩子一起參加,看看學校教室,運動場等都是什麼樣子。不要忘了參觀期間問問孩子的感受,說不定你們還能在參觀途中認識新的朋友!

 

  1. Attend Bridging Courses Together

One of the main concerns parents have when it comes to changing schools is “will my child be able to cope with the work increase? What about the level of difficulty?” There are multiple ways one can address this concern, but by far the most effective would be to attend special “bridging courses” together with your child. These are tailored courses arranged for your child to ensure that when they eventually come face-to-face with work at a different level, they will feel more comfortable and encouraged to tackle the academic work to the best of their ability.

  1. Break Time Tips & Tricks

If a canteen is available at the school, it can be a confusing time for your child. They will need to manage money and make decisions on various purchases, which can be quite daunting. In order to prepare for this, encourage your child to hand money to tellers when making purchases outside of school hours. If you are feeling challenging, ask them to see if they think the received change is correct. You should speak to your child about the process of making purchases at the school canteen before the situation happens, and provide them with a packed lunch in case they find the task too daunting.

      4. 休息時間小技巧!

如果孩子需要在學校用餐,這也可能為他帶來困擾。他們需要自我管理金錢,而這件事就足以讓他們感到煩惱。為了預防此類問題發生,家長要鼓勵學生使用金錢。你應該告訴孩子,購買物品的正確過程,如果實在不行,家長還是要為他們準備便當啦!

 

  1. Talk About Making New Friends

Going to a new school often means saying “see you later” to old friends and “hello” to new ones. Talk to your child about how they can make new friends, and let them know that this is not the end of their current friendships. Especially nowadays where technology makes communication with each other so easy, there is nothing to worry about. You can help set up some events with their pre-school friends to maintain these valuable friendships.

      5. 交新朋友

去新學校意味著與舊同學再見,並認識一些新同學。告訴你的孩子如何交到新朋友,並且讓他們知道,告別舊朋友也並不是友誼的結束。特別如今科技發達,人們溝通十分簡單,你也可以組織一些活動,讓孩子和舊朋友們保持友誼。

 

  1. Do A Trial Transport Run

Whether you are taking a car, bus, train, or walking to school, you should do a dry run together. Take it to the next level and practice waking up early in the morning, and take the reverse journey home!

  1. 試試看跑步回家

不論你是搭巴士,坐的士或者走路去學校,不如試試和孩子一起跑步!試試早起送他上學,再跑步回家!

 

  1. Establish Routine

Get your child used to the idea of having to go to bed at a certain time and waking up early for school. Talk about when they should be doing their homework and any restrictions that may be enforced with regards to electronic devices. You can try and implement this routine a month prior to the actual start date of their new school

  1. 建立日常規範

讓孩子有固定睡覺時間,並且早起去學校。告訴他們應該完成功課,才能去玩電子設備。家長要建立日常規範,特別要在正式上學的一周前就要開始做!

 

  1. Talk About Safety

Go through the different situations your child may encounter at school which are a threat to safety. Discuss what to do in the event someone makes them feel uncomfortable, talk about fire safety procedures, the dangers of leaving the school grounds and the importance of being with an adult when crossing the road.

  1. 講講安全

在任何情況下,孩子都有可能面對危險。和他們聊聊,什麼情況會讓他們感覺不舒服,並且告訴他們如何防範各種風險!
