The Year 5 Mentors program has started for 2019.
All year 5 students are invited to participate in the Year 5 Mentor program. The program runs for the duration of Semester 2 and the students have an opportunity to mentor students in Prep to Year 2.
The Year 5 Mentor program supports students with building their leadership skills and social skills when working with others. Students build confidence and resilience through participation in the program. Participation in the Year 5 Mentor program fits well with criteria for a school leadership position in Year 6.
Year 5 Mentors are required to commit to weekly meetings and regular participation in activities including mentoring in the playground and supporting special events. Students in the program wear a silicon wristband to identify them as a Mentor in the school.
