Peer Support Training Camp

Two days of icebreakers, trust-building games, and problem-solving activities at the Kauaeranga Valley Christian Youth Camp on May 2-3, 2023 and was a great success.

The camp was organized by THS Guidance Counsellor Ngaio Repia and 24/7 Youth Workers (who are on school grounds most days working with our tamariki).

The main objectives of Student Leaders Daniel and Paige, whose responsibilities are student welfare,  were to promote team building and trust exercises among the peer supporters and to set service-learning goals for the upcoming school year.

The camp began with a series of team-building activities led by the 24/7 youth workers. The activities were designed to help the peer supporters get to know each other better and to build trust among the group. These exercises included icebreakers, trust-building games, and problem-solving activities. Not to mention that everyone was well-fed with Pizza and Subway!


The peer supporters had a great opportunity to build relationships with each other, set service-learning goals, and discuss ways to make a positive impact in their school and community. The 24/7 youth workers provided excellent training opportunities.


Here are some photos of the students taking part in some trust-building activities.

There have been subsequent peer-support meetings held about implementing the goals that were set at the camp. Posters are being designed, people have volunteered to work in the breakfast club space and content is well underway for a Youtube channel to be set up.
