Peer Mediator Big Day Out 2013

Nikita, Chantalle and Jemma went to the Peer Mediator Big Day Out today at Opawa School. It was a great chance to meet and talk with other Peer Mediators. We heard how they run their programmes and picked up a few great ideas. We also got some cool resources and even a t-shirt!

Buddy Reading with Rm 16

Every second Monday we are lucky enough to be able to do buddy reading with Room 16. We listen to the students read and then we often get to read to them.
