Peer support training for Year 6 students
Year 6 students at Pretty Beach Public School have started the school year with a peer support training day.
The course was a refresher for the students to help them build their skills to be effective peer support leaders during the 2017 school year.
"Students participated in activities designed to help them learn effective decision making, problem solving and communication skills," said principal Ms Deborah Callender.
"Peer support will begin in Week 4 and all students in the school participate," Ms Callender said.
"Peer support leaders will guide students through eight sessions," she said.
"This year's module is Promoting Harmony: Values.
"It supports students to develop the skills, knowledge and attitudes necessary to actively and critically construct shared values.
"Promoting Harmony provides students with opportunities to explore values in the context of their school community.
"This module assists students in defining individual and community values, building relationships and improving decision-making skills.
"A key element of promoting harmony is encouraging students to identify and accept differences amongst people and demonstrate care for others."
