Introducing our Peer Support Program

This week our students will commence our Peer Support Program with Session 1 Feeling safe—Being Me! For the next 8 weeks they will be involved in groups of approximately 8-10 students to work with two student Peer Leaders and supervising teacher on Stronger Together—a module that aims to support positive relationships amongst students. Starting this week, we will talk to students about their strengths and their resilience. We will discuss positive relationships or friendships and what to do it they experience harmful and hurtful behaviours. Our Peer Leaders have been trained and have planned their session using the materials we have from Peer Support Australia that are specially designed for student led sessions. 

Our Supervising/Class Teachers will prepare students, supervise sessions and check understanding at the end of the session. Our session this week includes activities for the members of the group to get to know each other by using a range of social skill interactions that promote diversity and engagement in a sensitive yet productive manner. It also establishes a safe learning environment where the peer group feel able to join in, share and contribute to developing a sense of belonging , to better protect themselves from the effects of bullying.
