Peer Support in Secondary Schools

The Secondary School Peer Support Program seeks to increase connections for Year 7 students as they transition to Secondary School. This allows students to form relationships and develop empathy and a sense of responsibility towards students they might not typically engage with. While working within these structured groups, older students lead younger students through activities that explore social and emotional skills focusing on resilience, values and anti-bullying.

The structure and content combined seek to build protective factors such as sense of self, sense of possibility, connectedness and resilience and establish a shared language across the school community.

Schools will require a Secondary Schools Manual which contains the Peer Leaders’ Training and administrative guidelines. The school will also require one of the modules from the suite to provide content for the groups work through.
