About the Mentoring Programme: All Year 9 and 10 form classes have Year 13 Mentors allocated to work with them throughout the year. Those Year 13 students selected to fulfill this role are chosen primarily on their ability to provide positive role modeling for junior students.
The role of the mentor is to:
- Assist students to successfully make the transition into Year 9 (or from Year 9 into Year 10) at Palmerston North Boys’ High School.
- Encourage students to become fully involved in the life of the school through involvement in co-curricular and Shand Shield activities.
- Encourage young men to commit themselves to giving their best effort with all classroom and homework activities.
- Provide advice to students relating to key school events such as the junior examinations.
- Support students who are experiencing difficulties or who have questions regarding specific aspects of school life.
