Lord Mayor sits in on lessons
16 Aug 2018
Lord Mayor, Councillor Deirdre Hargey, paid a visit to the West Belfast Partnership Board Transition School to meet children transferring to Post-primary education, and those who are helping them prepare for it.
Children get a chance to boost their literacy and numeracy skills, which often drop over the summer break, ahead of the move to the ‘big school’ at the WBPB Transition School. In addition, they learn life skills such as meeting new people, and coping with new, bigger environments.
The Transition School takes place annually in St Mary’s University, Falls Road and students from the university work alongside teachers to take the classes
