Moving on to a higher grade in a new school, sounds exciting and something to look forward to.
But is it? In some case, especially when students is starting grade 6 or grade 9, they are facing huge changes, not only attending a different school, in many cases they will not be in the same class as their friends, meaning that everything is new and unfamiliar. Further, there is the additional stress about finding their way in the unfamiliar new school.
Lockers and the lock combination, going to the cafeteria are further sources of anxiety. Entering Grade 9, is also daunting as Grade 12 students are so much taller, they are almost adults, and some drive cars and even have beards! Grade 6 and grade 9 are perhaps one of the most challenging transitions years. The previous year, they were amongst the big kids in school, younger students looked up to them, they felt confident and knew most things if not everything… and now they are youngest students. Having anxieties is a natural experience, anxiety at times can be positive, it can motivate us making sure that we are prepared, for example during exams time. However, anxiety becomes an issue when it is so intense that it interferes with how we function.
In teens anxiety can impact their ability to attend classes and go to public places. As a result, teens can be challenged academically. Poor concentration, struggling in making decision, contribute to poor self-esteem.
Other signs and symptoms include extreme shyness, passivity when on the spot, refusal to perform in public, avoidance, fears, dread, panic, tantrums, irritability, excessive worrying, need for isolation.
