Launch of the new Growing Up in Ireland report:


The report by Professor Emer Smyth was launched by Dr Katherine Zappone, T.D., Minister for Children and Youth Affairs on October 19th 2017 in the ESRI.

The transition to second-level education has been identified as a major landmark in young people’s lives: moving to a new school involves exposure to new teachers and ways of learning, as well as a new peer group. This report draws on Growing Up in Ireland data collected when children were 9 and subsequently 13 to explore the factors shaping their experiences of the transition period.

The publication is available to download – here.
