Year 6 Students Supporting Younger Students


As introduced to the students at the Junior School assembly a few weeks ago, a handful of Year 6 students have begun their role as 'Student Support Leaders' around the Junior School.  Approximately nine Year 6 students have been assigned this position to support younger students at recess and lunch.  Dressed in orange vests and armed with a clipboard and plenty of enthusiasm, some of these students' tasks include assisting students with play problems, helping students find a friend to play with, demonstrating how to play a new game and helping students build cubbies in the bush play area.  This initiative encourages leadership within the Year 6 students but ensures all students feel supported and happy in new and existing friendship groups and enjoy their 'play' time outside of the classroom.
