Last week, Stage 3 students undertook two days of intensive leadership training in preparation for our Peer Support Program, which will run on Tuesday afternoons throughout Term 2.
The Peer Support program provides students with a supportive environment where children and young people develop skills, understandings, attitudes and strategies to improve their mental, social and emotional wellbeing.
The theme of this year's program is 'Promoting Harmony' and the lessons focus on the development of key skills such as:
values clarification (care, respect, responsibility and a 'fair go' for all)
Positive relationships are developed across the school through a series of engaging activities with a range of students of all ages. The program enables participating students to contribute in an environment where all can join in. Students in Stage 3 will also develop their leadership skills as they lead their groups (8-10 students from K-5) through the eight learning sessions.
