STUDENT MENTOR GROUPS INITIATIVE
The Student Mentor Groups Initiative was established to improve the wellbeing and school community connectedness. Each staff member of CSC (teacher and ES Staff) is provided a small number of students (6-9 students) that they will ‘mentor’ for the year. In response to the impact the pandemic has had on student mental health and wellbeing; the College, through student data analysis and consultation with the wider school community recognised the need to prioritise student sense of belonging. Students will meet their ‘Mentor group’ once a week for roughly 20 mins in an allocated space of the school to chat, check in and discuss anything they desire socially, emotionally, goal or education related.
This is a journey of progress not perfection! We are building on the strengths of our learning community and complementing the work we already do, building mental fitness of ALL members of our community will be our 2022 and 2023 priority.
