Peer Support

Peer Support is a programme where Year 13 students work with small groups of Year 9 students to help them establish skills and relationships to adapt to a new school environment.

Year 13 students are chosen for their potential leadership skills and their ability to work well with other students. They undergo a two day training programme in late January to familiarise themselves with the programme and give them some training in managing small groups.

During the first term, Year 13 students organise weekly activities and discussions with their Year 9 groups. During Term 2 the seniors visit their Year 9 form classes on a weekly basis.

This programme has proved very popular at Sacred Heart. Year 9 students relate well to their older peers. They see them as role models and settle into College life very quickly.
