Glenbrook School is a Cool School. This programme is taught every year. Cool Schools teaches the students a range of strategies to deal with conflict. It empowers students by following a specific process to finding a solution. This is often through a mediation process.
Peer mediators will be available during interval and lunchtimes in the playground. The playground mediators are identified by a yellow vest and will deal with minor playground issues. These skills are also applied during Purposeful Play. Please see Mrs Davidson-Harford for any other information regarding this programme.
We encourage our students to use their WITS when resolving conflict situations. WITS is an acronym that stands for: Walk Away, Ignore, Tell Someone, Say an ‘I’ statement. An ‘I statement’ includes “I feel… (state the feeling), “when…” (state the behaviour), “because…” (state the consequence).
