Programs - Peer Support ProgramThis program involves Grade 5 and Grade 2 students. It is designed to provide support between groups of junior students and senior students.
It gives the Grade 5 students leadership skills and opportunities for self-development. For Grade 2 students it provides them with a supportive environment in which to develop their self-confidence and their individuality. It provides younger children with other friends to help with problems if needed.
It also improves communication and organisation skills between the children themselves. Selected student leaders meet with their group for one session per week.
The sessions are designed to develop the overall aims of the Peer Support program and are organised into lessons dealing with particular issues.
