Mentoring : interaction and close cooperation between the collège students and primary school pupils
From the start of the school year, a mentoring programme is arranged between collège students and pupils from the Saint Maurice school. Some twenty collège students provide mentoring to the primary school pupils, going over concepts that have not been properly understood, helping them with homework or completing school exercises.
It gives primary school pupils a chance to interact with an older student. The collège students also enjoy volunteering their time to help the smaller children. Some have foreign mentors who help them practise another language: English or Spanish.
Each pupil has their own mentor and a close rapport is built between the older and younger pupils. Watch out for more great initiatives at our school, where “confidence” and “charity” are the buzzwords!
