Peer Support Programme & Peer Support Camp

Peer Support programmes have introduced opportunities for senior students to contribute to counselling and guidance support for students attending secondary school. The Peer Support programme is designed to help students achieve success at school by developing their relationship skills, their self-esteem and sense of belonging.

Benefits include: 

Junior students entering high school are helped to adjust to life at school with this programme

Senior students are trained as peer support leaders to work with and support junior students as they start high school

The peer support programme through group discussion and activities led by senior students helps to develop self confidence, trust and friendship.
