This trend reflects the importance of staying connected during this critical period. Here, we explore the reasons why parents are eager to obtain SIM cards before break up.

Preparing for Secondary School

As children prepare to transition to secondary school, it becomes crucial for them to keep in touch. By exchanging numbers, they can initiate conversations, plan meet-ups, and engage In discussions about their upcoming experiences. This communication enables a smoother transition into the new school environment.

Staying Connected over the Long Holiday

The summer break often entails a significant separation from friends as families embark on holidays or engage in various activities. By securing mobile numbers for their children, parents ensure that friendships can be sustained over the extended holiday period. Through calls and texts, children can share their experiences, maintain a sense of camaraderie, and strengthen the bonds ready for the next chapter.

Support in Their Pocket

Exchanging mobile numbers gives children a supportive outlet to reach out to friends, discussing their concerns, sharing information, and offering reassurance. These conversations can help ease nerves.

Arranging to Meet Friends

Meeting up during the summer break is beneficial for children as it allows them to sustain friendships, nurture social skills, share experiences and support transitions to secondary school. These meet-ups provide opportunities for children to maintain connections and create lasting memories with friends.
