On Monday our Year 13 leaders completed the second of their training days and spent time welcoming and supporting Year 9 students.
Our Year 13 leaders help our Year 9 students as they transition to high school. Some of the outcomes include helping students to feel valued in our school community, developing relationship skills, self esteem and a sense of belonging. Peer support sessions occur during most Wednesday mentoring times each week during term one and at other special times during the year. Sessions cover getting to know one another, finding out about people and places students can go for support, learning about our school values, understanding diversity, cooperation and communication skills as well as a cybersafety session. My thanks go to Mr Ensor, Mrs Penn, Mrs Bir, Mrs Hannah for their help with this valuable programme and we thank the leaders for their help and leadership with this programme.
