Our Peer Support Program builds connections between
Year 11 students and Year 7 students

The Peer Support Program encourages the development of self-esteem, self-acceptance and confidence in Year 7 students. It is designed to encourage group involvement and open discussion of the issues that young students face when making the transition into secondary school.

The program opens up the opportunity for friendly contact between senior and junior students. It also benefits the Year 11 Leaders who receive real life responsibilities while caring for and leading Year 7 students. Peer Support also encourages and prepares students for future leadership opportunities within the College.
