New Journey, New Beginnings: Grade 1 Transition Project

The project proposes a smooth transition for Grade 1 students with a unique adaptation experience.

At School of the Nations, the passage from Grade 1 to Grade 2 is marked by a celebration of learning and adaptation: the Transition Project. Conceived by the Early Childhood and Elementary School teams, this annual project is a carefully constructed bridge that guides students to the next stage of their education.

"This first event of the transition project is the first step we take towards a very unique moment at Nations. It is a time of preparation and enthusiasm for our students, and as they experience this anxiety and anticipation, the project is very beneficial because it promotes a sense of belonging in the new school environment," explains Ludmila Freitas, Early Childhood Principal.

The first day of the Transition Project was filled with significant activities. Students participated in a tour of the main campus, where they had the chance to see the spaces they will soon visit daily. The day was topped off with a special dinner and a party, ensuring that the transition not only educates but also delights the little ones.

In addition to the initial journey to the main campus, which allows students to familiarize themselves with future classrooms and the campus environment, the project extends over the last three months of the school year. During this period, students have the opportunity to meet their future teachers and the current students of Grade 2, creating a space of welcome and mutual understanding.

These activities are designed to transform the potential stress of change into an exciting adventure. The Transition Project not only prepares students for physical and academic changes but also takes care of their emotional needs. With the Transition Project, School of the Nations emphasizes its commitment to the holistic development of its students, ensuring that each transition is as smooth and enjoyable as possible. By equipping students with resilience and a positive mindset, the school prepares them not only for the next school year but for the various transitions in life.
