Peer Mediation


Peer Mediation is one of the leadership activities undertaken by Year 6 students. It involves students helping students solve simple playground issues such as not sharing equipment fairly. Although the program is overseen by a teacher, the Year 6 students run Peer Mediation themselves. Senior students undertake training to become Peer Mediators and follow a step-by-step mediation process when helping other students. The process involves hearing everyone’s side and then providing a way for the students involved to work out a solution they are all happy with. All students who have used Peer Mediation have been very happy they could solve their issues easily.
