Volunteer senior students are trained to be Peacemakers. They are trained to use the peacemaking and/or restorative practice approach (already used by the staff) to deal with minor playground incidents among junior students.
The Peacemakers program has shown that it is effective in building relationships, dealing with conflict and with bullying and is in line with the school values that we promote. The program has already had a positive impact in the way in which students are seeking support to resolve minor issues. The Peacemakers are strong role models for younger students.
