How does the Peer Support Program work?
All year 6 and some year 5 students undertake an intensive 2 day training course to enable them to lead their allocated group of 8-12 students through a series of sessions, which are based on a particular focus. Students from T-6 are put into multi-age Peer Support groups with 2 trained student Peer Leaders. The 2 Peer Leaders then facilitate 8 x 30 minute sessions based on a particular module with their Peer Support group each week, once a year
