Peer Learning in Junior School

Peer P2 600w

On Friday 10 March, the Primary 6 girls came across from Lower School to teach some activities to the girls in the Junior School and Big Owls. There were all sorts of activities from decorating unicorn cakes to learning rugby skills.

The girls all had great fun learning new skills and appreciated the time and effort that the Primary 6 girls put into organising and teaching their chosen skill or activity.

A very big thank you to all of the Primary 6 girls!

Here are some comments from Primary 2:
