In 2017, Navan School Completion Programme (NSCP) staff team with the support of Meath CYPSC, LMETB and Meath Springboard Family Support Services developed a workbook called;
“Mind the Gap” Transition Steps from Primary to Post Primary
The main aim of the workbook and its associated video is to assist young people successfully transfer from primary to secondary school. It encompasses exercises to help pupils negotiate second level time tables, teacher expectations, new environments and the journey from established social groups into new social relations.
In light of school closures due to COVID 19 restrictions and in response to the needs of 6th Class pupils during this time, the Mind The Gap Steering Committee have taken the generous decision to make the successful Workbook available online as a pdf.

Hard copies of the Mind the Gap Workbook are available and can be ordered through firstname.lastname@example.org. The workbooks are very reasonably priced at €2 each to facilitate mass distribution. The Mind the Gap Steering Committee note from their experience that children absorb the learning best when completing hard copy material.
