In addition we trained 30 children as peacemakers, some of whom had one of the positions listed above.

Our peacemakers work in the yard and will assist, guide and support younger students at play, in this way contributing to the maintenance of a harmonious environment. The peacemaker training and program fits under the umbrella of restorative practices which is the core component of our management of student welfare.

The Year 6s also form a strong connection with their Prep buddy, this connection commences in the year prior to the preps starting school, so when the new year begins, the younger child has someone they know and can go to at recess and lunchtimes. The Year 6s really enjoy the opportunity to support and care for the younger prep child. The expectation is that each Year 6 student will be a fine role model for their prep buddy and in fact, for all other children in the school. As leaders in the school community, they are “on show” most of the time and the younger children should be able to count on them.
