The transition between grade s!ix and grade seven is a significant event in an adolescent's life. This project documents a thirteen year, continually evolving transition programme developed by a team of educators at Alexandra Junior High School. As the school counsellor, I played a role in the development of the strategies the team has identified as important for this programme. The first goal was to structure and facilitate a series of carefully planned activities to familiarize the incoming grade seven students and their parents with the school programmes and building. The second goal was to offer and promote student activities which served to have students take some ownership and leadership in the school.
