Peer Mediation

The Peer Mediation program is available to all students.  Mediation is a successful way to resolve conflict and students who have a problem or conflict with another student can request Peer Mediation.  The best person to see is the Year Advisor who will refer the matter to the Peer Mediation Coordinator.  Mediation is voluntary and confidential and the mediators have been specifically trained to work with the students in the mediation session to find solutions.  When a resolution is reached the students create a written agreement which is aimed at providing strategies to resolve any outstanding issues. 

Mediation at Barrenjoey has a very high success rate and students who attend peer mediation report that they feel more confident about settling their own disputes.
