When progressing from Primary School to Secondary School, children may experience social anxiety or social difficulties.

To alleviate the stress associated with this transition, Barrington Centre presents Heroes After School. This program targets children aged between 11 – 14 years old with the intent to enhance communication skills, minimise the impact of social anxiety, form friendships and learn techniques to combat social difficulties.

Heroes After School equips children with the Social Skills Superpowers to reduce the impact of social anxiety!
