Homework Hub

Homework Hub at Mornington Campus will provide a quiet space for students to work, as well as arrange separate space if required to undertake collaborative projects.

Homework Hub is on 3 days a week until Thursday 21 November.

THE NEED FOR PEER MENTORING PROGRAMS

Our youngest students sometimes look to  guidance and support from someone besides a parent or a teacher. An alternative solution to consider is a peer mentor. As educators, we can help bridge this space by creating systems in our schools with peer-mentoring programs. School-based, cross-age peer mentoring programs tap into the power of older students to create nurturing, supportive environments for younger students and can be a highly effective tool to address creating a caring community.

 

CREATING PEER MENTORING PROGRAMS

Creating a peer-mentoring program provides opportunities for students to share their feelings, thoughts, and concerns with their fellow peers—it is a simple and strategic way to teach children how to build relationships with their peer mentor and with other people. Besides providing opportunities for children to build relationships, peer mentoring programs also teach soft skills, like compassion, listening, and kindness— skills that are now being included in 21st-century education and sought after in the economy.
