Bridge Builder Mediators began their work in the Prep – Year 3 playgrounds last week. These students are undertaking an important leadership role in our school - helping younger children “build bridges” and solve their problems with others.
Bridge Builders can help with issues such as name-calling, teasing, being left out, not playing fairly, not sharing, disagreements and friendship problems. The year 6 students whom were selected as Bridge Builders have had two days of training in facilitated workshops at Ironside learning strategies about how to deal with conflict.
We appreciate the effort and commitment of our twenty-four Year 6 Bridge Builder mediators in helping to keep our play areas safe and happy.
