How can I make friends at my new school?


My family moved over the summer and I’m about to start at a new school. I don’t know anyone and I’m not sure how to make new friends. What should I do?


The best way to meet new people at school is to join extra-curricular activities. Find something that interests you or that is a hobby, and join a club, activity or group related to that.

Also, don’t be afraid to talk to people you want to get to know. It may be awkward at first, but it is by far the best way to meet people. School also gives you plenty of opportunities for conversation starters.

Here are a few easy ones:
-The homework you had in class the previous night
-Your teacher
-The food in the lunchroom
-The school football team

Good luck!
