Support student wellbeing across the whole school

The Peer Support Program is a whole-of-school student wellbeing program available to schools across Australia.

The program involves senior students being trained as Peer Leaders, and leading small groups of younger students in weekly structured sessions.

Peer Support is supported by 50 years of practise and research. And our program is endorsed by state education departments.
