At the beginning of each new year, all the Grade 7 pupils are paired up with a Grade 1 pupil as part of our Mentor Programme.
This is usually the beginning of a very special friendship. The nurturing role that the Grade 7 pupils play forms an important part of the settling-in process of the Grade 1 pupils. Eager little faces are often seen peering into the Grade 7 classrooms asking for help with lost clothing, a scraped knee or just simply wanting a hug.
