How to Throw a Moving-Up Party

Have you got a child about to start secondary school? Celebrate the occasion by throwing a party and make the most of their childhood - they grow up fast!

It’s that time of year again; September’s just around the corner and, while it may still be the summer holidays, school will be starting again before you know it. For some kids who have the start of secondary school looming, this is a pretty big time in their life. So, why not celebrate the occasion and make sure you make the most of their childhood days – there’s only one way to do that – moving up parties!

Why Throw a Moving Up Party?

When your child goes to secondary school, there are a whole lot of emotions floating around. Excitement, fear sadness, and that’s just naming a few! It’s a significant milestone for both you and your youngster.

As parents, throwing a moving up party is a great way to treasure those last days of childhood before your little one takes their next big step in the world. Secondary school can make kids grow up very quickly – soon, they’ll be independent young teens who won’t even let you throw them a party! So make the most of it while you can.

For kids, they might have a few worries about moving to a new school or even back-to-school anxiety. From making friends to getting lost around the building, most children will have some fears. Throwing them a party is a way to help those feelings of anxiety by showing them this is an exciting time in their life. It is something to celebrate; they don’t need to be scared. It’s a great way to bring all their friends together too, especially as they might be going their separate ways very soon.
