Big thanks are extended to the students and teachers of Kinross Wolaroi School in Orange, NSW for their continued support of Peer Support Australia.
Each year over the past five years, Peer Support Australia has been the very grateful recipient of a donation from the school, the proceeds of the students’ annual end of year Carnivale. In making the donation, the students said they wanted to help us in our mission to improve student wellbeing across Australia.
Peer Support Australia is absolutely thrilled and honoured to receive these funds and thank the students and teachers for their efforts.
About the Carnivale at Kinross Wolaroi School
After completing their Peer Leaders’ Training, Year 5 students at Kinross Wolaroi take charge of the annual whole school Carnivale event. Students’ skills are put to the test as they are required to develop, organise and facilitate all Carnivale activities. For many, it was their first experience of leadership, preparing them well for their work as Peer Leaders the following year.
According to deputy principal Tim May, both Carnivale and The Peer Support Program give students a “better understanding of what life can be like as a teacher”. It also works to “develop a culture of inclusivity” across the school. The Program is “part of the school culture” and “teachers only need to look around the playground to see that it is working.”
To ensure all Carnivale activities run smoothly, students must draw on vital skills in communication, organisation and problem solving.
Students at Kinross Wolaroi School have been participating in the Program since 2005. Peer Support Australia would like to congratulate them on their commitment and thank them for their generosity.
