M PEOPLE

M People are respected senior students who act as mediators and mentors in the school
They operate under the idea that "the person is not the problem; the problem is the problem"
They attend a camp at the beginning of the year and weekly meetings where they learn about the following:
Mentoring
Mediating
Role modelling
Peacemaking
Teamwork
Respect

They wear their M People T Shirts to school once a week to increase their visibility and make it easier for students to approach them. The M People train the junior peer mediators and encourage them to act as mentors and mediators in the junior school. They also organise and run annual school peace week and respect week where they promote messages of peace and respect to our school community. The M People are overseen and trained by our school Guidance Counsellor Mrs Susan Reynolds.
