St John Bosco Arts College to host Year 5 transition extravaganza
St John Bosco Arts College is hosting a day of fun-filled activities on Wednesday, 26 July, for Year 5 pupils considering attending the school in September 2024.
With over 200 primary pupils involved, the event, run by St John Bosco’s transition coordinator, Claire Wharmby, is a chance for pupils to experience life at Bosco.
The day is going to be jam-packed with activities, giving pupils a taste of what to expect when they become part of the Bosco community.
Over at the science department, pupils will be immersed in the world of physics as they design and launch their very own rockets.
The school’s large trampolines will be available for pupils to bounce around, and on the school field, pupils can enjoy a game of rounders. The team activities are extremely important as they allow pupils to meet their potential classmates and build friendships ahead of the transition.
This year, St John Bosco has introduced textiles to the itinerary, allowing pupils to explore the art and design department and make their own creations.
Transition coordinator, Claire Wharmby, is excited to welcome pupils. She shared: “Transition events are so important and help potential pupils discover what life is like at Bosco. They are an opportunity to socialise with others and build connections before transition.
“The transition from primary to secondary can be daunting for some pupils, so we want to make the process as seamless as possible and ensure they feel confident when they walk through our doors in September 2024.
This year, the school has gone bigger than ever to really showcase all the opportunities available.
The school is committed to fostering a community where students can grow together. This event forms part of a wider transition programme that supports pupils during a pivotal time in their school journey.
The event is open to all Year 5 pupils from linked primaries and those from other primary schools.
