Each student is assigned to a small group that meets once each week on a timetabled basis with an experienced teacher.
The program covers items such as: settling into Freshwater Senior Campus, the culture of the Campus, study timetables, time management and a range of topics connected with late adolescent development and the transition from school to work.
It is intended that the teacher and students develop a positive relationship in order for the students to be able to confide and trust in their mentor and seek guidance.
The most important aspect of mentoring is the opportunity that students get to learn about how they learn. By understanding better their own learning processes students can be empowered to take control of their own progress. Every student at some time has some difficulty in their learning. Mentoring aims to help you identify the specific problem and then plan to solve that problem. It puts you in control.
