Peer Mediation

The Peer Mediation leadership program operates across both campuses. At both campuses we have over 150 grade 5 / 6 students trained as Peer Mediators. They use their skills in the strategies of mediation, conflict resolution and leadership, to listen to and assist students in resolving playground problems. They are on duty at recess and lunchtime with a partner, wearing yellow T-shirts, helping their fellow students.

Our Peer Mediators have been trained to:

  • Stay neutral
  • Treat people with respect
  • Keep information confidential
  • Help people work together
  • Listen empathetically
  • Help to solve problems
