St George Girls High School
An Academically Selective High School For Girls
Peer Support is a fun interactive program which incorporates leadership training for older students and a supportive environment for younger or new students. We offer Peer Support training for all year 10 students and extend that invitation to students from other schools that will be enrolling in year 11 the following year. The peer support program runs in the beginning of the year for all year 7 and new year 11 students. The group leaders are Year 11 students selected by application.
Activities are based around making friends, getting to know your way around and using the school diary. Sessions also include fun games to develop skills in communication, self-esteem, resilience and stress management. The program is very popular with the students and very effective in facilitating a smooth transition to high school.
