ANNUAL REPORT 2005-2006

About the Peer Support Foundation The Peer Support Foundation provides schools and their communities with a program designed to develop physical, social and mental wellbeing. These programs are implemented across the whole school and support a safer, happier environment where effective teaching and learning can occur. A range of training workshops that are designed to support school staff in planning for and implementing the Peer Support Program are provided. Scheduled workshops are held throughout the year at key locations. The Peer Support Program is supported by a series of peer led modules which form part of a learning continuum that aims to assist young people to develop positive values, attitudes, behaviours and skills related to relationships, leadership, optimism, resilience, values and antibullying. School communities are able to plot a learning pathway from Kindergarten through to Year 12 with modules that address their specific needs and goals.

Implementing the Peer Support Program In primary schools, student learning sessions are facilitated by Year 6 students with multi-age groups from Kindergarten to Year 5. In secondary schools, student learning sessions are available for a range of ages. The traditional approach is Year 10 or 11 students facilitating groups for Year 7. To support school communities in addressing specific areas of need and bring about positive change, the Peer Support Foundation provides: •

awareness raising workshops for community members

training and professional development for teachers

integrated learning modules for students—including notes for teachers, notes for Peer leaders and resources for students.

Peer led learning programs allow young people to: •

develop skills in cooperative learning

become better leaders

investigate issues they feel adults may not relate to

develop effective ways to deal with life experiences

explore ways in which other people deal with similar experiences.

ANNUAL REPORT 2005-2006

How the Peer Support Program works Awareness Raising

Raising awareness is the first step in implementing the Peer Support Program. This usually takes the form of a consultant’s talk to teachers, parents and community members. In some modules it also involves surveying attitudes and gathering information in relation to a particular issue.

Training

Teachers and parents are then trained at district or whole school workshops for 1 day. Teachers then train student leaders, using resources developed and provided by the Peer Support Foundation. These student training sessions are conducted over 2 days.

Implementation

In primary schools, Peer leaders work with a small group of students for approximately 30 minutes a week using Peer Support Foundation resource material. All Year 6 students take on this leadership role. They facilitate groups of about 8—10 students from Kindergarten—Year 5. In secondary schools, Year 10 or 11 students are trained and then encouraged to apply for this leadership position. They are responsible for groups of 8—10 students from Year 7. Sessions are conducted for 10 weeks. Some Peer Support Foundation modules operate with same age peers. This ensures age relevant issues are addressed in a supportive and positive environment. Students are supported at every stage through briefing and debriefing sessions conducted by teachers. Briefing is conducted at least the day before. Debriefing can take many forms and can occur up to a day later. Briefing and debriefing are vital to the success of the Peer Support Program. Schools are encouraged to involve parents in the Peer Support Program by providing ongoing information. In this way parents can enjoy and build on their children’s Peer Support experiences. In recognition of the time commitments and constraints placed upon schools, the Peer Support Foundation has developed a flexible delivery option for the anti-bullying program. This allows schools to implement the training within their own time frame. This also enables school communities to develop a stronger sense of ownership and commitment to dealing with bullying behaviours in their school context.

Celebration

Celebration of the achievement of Peer Support groups and their leaders is one of the many ways that individuals can build a sense of Self. The Peer Support Foundation encourages community members to celebrate the achievements of young people by presenting Peer Support Foundation certificates and badges. This also builds the connections between the school and its community. We encourage all parents and community members to inspire and support our young people by contributing to the Peer Support Program at your local school.

ANNUAL REPORT 2005-2006

Chairman’s Report It has been a very busy year for the Peer Support Foundation. Since I took over as Chairman from Brian Halstead at the 2005 Annual General Meeting, we have been involved in a strategic planning meeting, a quality review and a feasibility study for spreading the work of the Foundation outside NSW and the ACT. In all of these the great work done by Brian in conjunction with the staff of the Foundation over the last five years has been apparent. I would like to place on record my thanks to Brian for his leadership during his time as Chairman – he has set the bar high for his successors. As I took over as Chairman, the Peer Support Foundation had just started to implement a continuous quality review system, which necessitated the documentation of all our procedures. I was most impressed by the thoroughness of the process, one which greatly increased my understanding of how we operate and my appreciation of how well organized we are for a relatively small organisation. This process acted as an ideal induction program for a new Chairman! Many thanks to all staff and outgoing Chairman Brian Halstead for the part they played in preparing material for this review. All staff and directors were involved in a one day strategic planning session in December 2005, at which our plans for the next three years were discussed at length under the capable facilitation of Makis Chrysanthos. As a result of these deliberations, a slight change of direction has taken place, with an increased emphasis on taking the work of the Peer Support Foundation beyond New South Wales. This has been made possible by a grant from the Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing that funded a feasibility study, keeping the General Manager and me very busy over the last eight months. We have visited Queensland, Victoria, South Australia and Tasmania with a view to assessing possibilities for further development, and have decided to focus on Queensland and Tasmania at this stage. For many years now the Peer Support Program has been delivering programs to schools aimed at developing the resilience, optimism, connectedness, sense of self and decision-making abilities of young people. It is heartening to us to note that many Government initiatives are now supporting programs that develop these skills as a means of addressing issues such as safe schools, mental health, values education and suicide prevention. This match between what the Peer Support Foundation provides and what the Department of Health and Ageing and the Department of Education, Science and Training are trying to achieve has not only led to funding of program development and the feasibility study, it has also opened doors for us in discussions with state government departments. My first year as Chairman has been very busy and thoroughly enjoyable, made so by the support and hard work of the General Manager, Sharon Austin, and all staff members, and by the active support of all members of the board. As we start on a new year I believe that we are well placed to take advantage of an increasing demand for programs such as ours. Our mission “to provide dynamic peer led programs which foster the physical, mental and social wellbeing of young people and their community” has never been more appropriate than it is today.

ANNUAL REPORT 2005-2006

General Manager’s Report This has been another productive year for the Peer Support Foundation with the development of a new primary school module with a focus on anti-bullying. This module was developed with funding provided by the Australian Government Department of Education, Science and Training, and was the first time that funding has ever been provided to the Peer Support Foundation from the Federal Government. The successful development of the module together with the proven outcomes of the Peer Support Program, resulted in a successful approach to Dr Brendan Nelson whilst Minister for Education, Science and Training. Dr Nelson agreed to further fund a secondary school module focusing on anti-bullying and a primary school module focusing on values. Both these areas have received a great deal of media attention in recent times. Discussions took place with Minister Abbott, Minister for Health and Ageing. That resulted in his department agreeing to fund a feasibility study to investigate ways of promoting and implementing the Peer Support Program in other Australian states, at the same time supporting the Australian Government in the future directions of the MindMatters program for secondary schools and the development of a national Primary School Mental Health Promotion, Prevention and Early Intervention Program. This exciting initiative has assisted the Peer Support Foundation to develop some very positive relationships. Our strategic planning meeting in December 2005 highlighted a willingness by staff and board to consider ways to strategically position the Peer Support Foundation to expand the program and make available to other states. Funding will be sought in the year ahead to facilitate this process. The meeting also demonstrated a readiness to develop a technological approach to some aspects of service delivery. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all staff and Board for their hard work and dedication in the implementation of a Continuous Quality Improvement System and also thank those stakeholders who participated in the service development review. The QMS Review team were very professional in conducting the review, and the experience was a positive, team building exercise for us all. Congratulations to our Training and Development Consultant, Kristin Bell and her husband on the birth of their daughter in October 2005. We look forward to Kristin returning to work late 2006. Finally I would like to say a personal thank-you to our new Chairman, David Stanton. A long serving Board member, David took over as Chairman in October 2005. David and I have worked together closely since that time and his support, time, sense of fun and wise counsel is very much appreciated.
