Peer Mentors ready for service...

The Gateway Academy is proud to introduce their newly trained Peer Mentors. All fourteen of the students, who are all Year 7, successfully completed training, assisted by the more experienced Peer Mentors in later year groups. During the training sessions, the younger students were taught skills in basic counselling and active listening.

Miss Jones and Mrs Passingham presented certificates and badges to all those who completed the training, and who will now be attending duties during KS3 PAD times in the library to support their fellow peers.

The new students are pictured with their coach, Mrs Passingham, and fellow Peer Mentors.
