Bayfield is a "Cool School"

Bayfield is proud to be running the 'Cool Schools Peer Mediation Program'. Peer Mediation is the process in which senior school children are out on the playground supporting children and their peers with solving their own problems and creating conflict resolution using a step-by-step program. Children are empowered and given a voice, as well as strategies that will support them. Students are also guided through the Kaupapa (lessons) in the classroom as a school-wide approach There are many fantastic benefits, please follow the link to read more about Cool Schools.
