Year 7 Positive Relationships/Bullying/Cyber-safety Sessions
As part of the programs that we provide at Strathmore Secondary College, we offer our Year 7 students the opportunity to engage and participate in a positive relationships, bullying and cyber-safety session. This session provides them with information and knowledge around building and maintaining healthy relationships, recognising and reporting bullying and being safe online; all skills necessary for school life and beyond.
The sessions are predominantly run by a selected group of Year 9 peer mentors, with the support of the wellbeing team. For each Year 7 group, they are allocated two Year 9 peer mentors from their team, who undertake training and mentoring with the wellbeing team to provide them with the information and confidence to assist in running the sessions.
Each session runs over two periods and encourages our year 7s to ask questions and engage with the information being presented to them.
The topics that are covered in the sessions include recognising different types of relationships and why they are important, the different types of bullying, the positives and negatives of I.T., how to be safe online, consequences for bullying and cyberbullying, where/who to go for help, and the colleges school bullying policy.
The Positive Relationships/Bullying/Cyber-safety Sessions give the year 7’s an opportunity to identify the different support networks that they have, and where they can go to for help should they need it. As part of building ongoing support and connection, we ask that you have a discussion with your child about their session, to help shape their understanding around the importance of the topics covered, and encourage them to ask any questions they may have.
