Since 2016, we in Helplink Mental Health, have been providing our unique emotional wellbeing workshop for 6th class students called The Voyage; to primary schools in Dublin and Galway.
In 2021, with the support of the Irish Youth Foundation, we adapted this workshop so it is available online nationally.
During 2021 we provided The Voyage to over 20 schools from across the country, supporting over 2000 6th class students with the emotional aspects of transitioning from Primary to Secondary School!
The School/Home edition of the course costs 200 Euro per school (no matter the amount of 6th class students per school).

Supporting Primary School Student’s Emotional Wellbeing Transition from Primary to Post Primary School.
The Voyage (school/home edition) is a workshop, designed by Helplink Play and Art Therapists, that supports children’s emotional wellbeing during their transition from 6th class in primary school into secondary (post-primary) school.
This is achieved by providing the children with age appropriate mental health life-skills that they can practice and re-practice from home for 10 months after the course has taken place in school.
Transitioning from Primary to Secondary school is a time of huge transition for students, where many children experience uncertainty and increased apprehension/anxiety.
Some of the mental health life-skills provided in the six chapters of the course (each chapter takes circa a half an hour), can require basic art materials; that can be accessed in most homes. No artistic ability is necessary to complete the activities.
For children who are home schooled or whose school does not provide the school/home edition we have The Voyage (Individual/Home) edition that can be purchased by a parent/caregiver; see tab 2 above for more information.
