Peer Support

Peer Support

The Peer Support Program is a whole school approach to support students’ wellbeing and mental health. The program is a peer led, skills based, experimental program empowering students to support each other and contribute positively to society. Peer Support provides students with a supportive learning environment in which to develop the skills, understandings, attitudes, and strategies to improve their mental, social and emotional wellbeing.

The students will undertake lessons in the following key areas:

Keeping Friends: Relationships

Students develop skills in maintaining positive friendships by learning how to play fairly, accept that friendships change, support each other and recognise that they may have a variety of friends.

Living Positively: Optimism

Students develop the skills and knowledge to approach life with a positive attitude, use their strengths, engage in enjoyable activities and show gratitude to others.

Moving Forward: Resilience

Students will be supported to recognise and utilise protective factors and develop a range of strategies to employ in challenging situations.

Promoting Harmony: Values

Students develop skills in values clarification, relationship building, assertiveness and decision making. Includes the values of caring, respect, responsibility and fair go.

Stronger Together: Anti-Bullying

Students develop skills in decision making, problem solving, assertiveness, empathy and relationship building. This module is part of a whole school approach to addressing the issue of bullying in a positive way.
