Peer Support is an evidence based, peer led approach designed to enhance the mental, social and emotional wellbeing of young people.
Peer Support Leaders at ABHS are selected for their positive peer relationships, leadership skills and capacity to mentor Year 7 students. They undergo a two day rigorous training program which equips them to deliver the program in small groups to Year 7 students during Term 1.
Peer Support Leaders not only spend 1 period per week over 8 weeks with their Year 7 groups but will accompany Year 7 on camp. They form an integral part of Year 7 transition to high school and the positive relationships formed during this time provide Year 7 students with a foundation of trust as they navigate their journey into high school.
