Students are able to apply to become peer supporters in Year 9. They have to complete a formal application detailing why they want to be a peer supporter and what they think they will bring to the scheme. Those that are chosen are provided with a three day training scheme:
Day 1: The various forms of Bullying
Day 2 : The role of the peer supporter
Day 3 : Conflict Resolution
Peer supporters are expected to be on duty once a week for each of the following:
- early risers breakfast club
- break duty and
- lunch duty a week
They are also expected to attend the new Year 7 Induction Day.
At the end of the training successful students are invited to a graduation ceremony with their parents. Both students and parents are asked to sign a contract agreeing to take part in extra-curricular activities.
