Peer Mediators

Peer mediators guide a process of problem solving for their peers. This involves a team of mediators in the playground at break times supporting others to build caring and safe relationships. 

Peer mediators receive intensive initial and regular ongoing training during school time.

This is a tricky role with lots of new learning for our ākonga. There is a process they have to follow when mediating that has to be learned and then remembered. You can learn more about peer mediation here (have a look at the videos at the bottom of the page - we are using the Year 4 - 8 version at this stage). 

We encourage all our ākonga to approach our peer mediators if they have a problem at break times - our mediators will get help from a kaiako/teacher if needed.
