Learning to support each other
This year we are running the Peer Mentoring scheme again – the Year 7 children met with Year 11 mentors during registration and helped the form tutor with form business. The mentors will build a relationship with the Year 7 children over the next few weeks and then there will be the ‘buddying up’ of small groups of mentors to mentees.
We are expecting the mentors to work with the Year 7 students on topics such as anti bullying, self-esteem and generally listen to any worries and concerns that they might be experiencing at that time and offer ideas to help solve their problems.
This scheme is just one of many successful enrichment programmes which we encourage our students to take part in during their time here at Westholme.
