Leadership merit #3

On Wednesday we had a lady named Tracy come to our school from the peace foundation,to teach us about being a better and more efficient peer mediator.

We went over to the hall at about 9:30 we started off by going over a couple of rules;then,we started of by learning about different thing we do when we are around someone or have a problem with someone else.those feeling and reactions were represented by different animals,e.g a turtle is when you just can't be bothered arguing and walk away.After, learning about the different animals we had to write down when we use those e.g if it is around our friends or around family.Later on,we got into groups of about 5 to 6 and did a range of activities like arranging different feeling and key words with the animals.The people that got less wrong got a peer mediation badge,we got 6 wrong but we did not win.After,morning tea we got into different groups and watched a clip on peer mediation,about how peer mediators are supposed to act then,we write down 5/6 qualities about the mediators.Next,we did watch a couple more videos on peer mediation and do a little bit more discussing about the topic.Soon after,we got into pairs of yr 7/8 and did listening activities.At the end we all got a peer mediation badge an went back to class.

C.A.R.E VALUE I SHOWED WAS: probably respect because I showed respect while Tracy was talking.
