Peer Support Programme Delivers the School Values

The Peer Support Programme at TGS is again one of the standout programmes delivered where Year 13 students offer their time, care and experience to ensure the Year 9 students feel welcomed and cared for when they arrive at the school for the first time.

The Year 13 students who volunteer for the programme went through an intensive eight hour training course with their house leaders, well being staff members and deans. The year 9 cohort arrived at TGS on Wednesday 2 February full of enthusiasm and admittedly some nerves as well. They were met by their Year 13 leaders and spent two hours getting to know each other, setting group guidelines, getting familiarised with the school and enjoying some creative and fun activities. 

The feedback from the seniors and juniors is that they thoroughly enjoyed the ability to engage with people and felt that they now 'belonged.' The programme continues for the next five Wednesdays to ensure that the school values of care is lived out.
