AT our school we believe engage-
ment with learning is enhanced when
students are actively involved in the
One of strategies we use to sup-
port this belief is to have all students
mentoring each other. Therefore, all of
our students have the opportunity to be
“leaders of their learning” in groups of

Each term with our peer mentoring
we have a focus on a particular learning
area. Last term it was I.C.T. (Information,
Communication Technology) where the
upper primary students supported the
learning of our middle and junior primary
students with software programs we use.

books and junior primary students prac-

and middle primary students leading
the learning of our “jolly phonics and
grammar” to the upper primary children.

activities for each other.
We also have our junior
primary children and Port

working together on Tuesday

Children have been designing ob-
stacle courses, measuring the school
grounds and playing number games.
Peer mentoring has been very suc-
cessful in further developing self-esteem,
engaging all children with their learning
and developing their leadership skills.
