Peer Support and Leadership Program

Each year we provide our Year 5 and 6 group with a Peer Support and Leadership Program. The aim of the program is to provide our senior students with:

  • an understanding of nurturing leadership in self and others
  • the opportunity to develop social competencies to deal with interactions between students
  • skills in listening and responding to other students

The program covers the following skills and abilities:

  • self-awareness
  • the effect of positive and negative self-talk
  • conflict resolution
  • identifying and responding to the feelings of others
  • problem solving
  • decision making

All Year 6 students also have a nominated leadership role within the school.
