College Life

The Junior School

Grade 4 students are trained as Peer Mediators to assist the recess duty teachers. Peer Mediation helps to establish a sense of responsibility in students and fosters a sense of caring for others. The Peer Mediators model acceptable play behaviour, listen to and help articulate disputes, help the younger students to solve conflict through discussion and build confidence and self-esteem. In addition, the Grade 4 students have an opportunity to act as Lunch Buddies for our Kindergarten students and take a leadership role in our weekly assemblies. Each grade level partners up with another grade for a Reading Buddy program.
