St Johns College
We specially thank Margaret McNamara from St Johns College in Dubbo NSW, who is retiring from teaching. Ten years ago Margaret implemented the Peer Support Program at her school, to support students in forming positive relationships as well as reducing bullying. She was instrumental in extending the Program to schools across the Diocese.
Margaret told us, “One of my greatest joys of Peer Support – seeing our senior leaders step up, accept responsibility, develop leadership skills and give a glimpse into the wonderful adults they will become. Peer Support has given a whole new layer of depth to my relationships with these students.”
Thank you Margaret for dedicating your time to supporting the wellbeing of Australian students and making a lasting impact on the lives of your school community.
