Year 6 – Peer Peacekeeping training

September 28 @ 5:00 pm - September 29 @ 4:00 pm

Peer Peacekeeping Training Session

  • WHO: Year Six Students
  • WHAT: Training for students on how to be objective and empathetic as they learn to mediate conflict between their peers and younger students in the school.
  • WHERE: 742 Waterloo Street. Students will walk together from the bus, upon their return from Stratford on September 28, to the Junior High building, where they will sleep over on Thursday and spend the day on Friday. Students will then be walked over to the Elementary building for regular dismissal Friday.  ** Since the students will be at Stratford on Thursday the 28, we suggest that they bring their overnight items to the bus prior to going to Stratford. One of the Upper Elementary teachers will walk the students over to Junior High to store their items.
  • WHEN: Thursday, September 28 from 5:00 pm until Friday, September 29 at 4:00 pm

In order to thoroughly train students in this process and develop a sense of trust and camaraderie, we hold this training over a two-day concentrated period. This successfully trains the students in a short time frame.  We have chosen a Thursday evening and Friday to minimize the intrusion on students’ personal time on weekends.

Note: Students may only act as Peer Peacekeepers after completing the full training session.

 All meals are provided. Students need to bring the following:

  • Sleeping bags, pillow, pyjamas, toiletries, small towel, warm clothes for outside on Thursday evening and a change of clothes for Friday.
  • Completed permission form by Monday, September 25.

If you have any questions, please contact any one of the Peer Peacekeeper teachers below.

Thank you,

Roxanne Gianelli, Susan Donaghy, Amanda Pilon, Rob Loebach and Janet Anderson

What People Are Saying...

  • As I’m sure all parents do, we worried a bit about the high school transition. We are pleased to say that our daughter has managed the transition well, seems to be adjusting to the differences in the public system and is happy. …We just wanted to say thank you to everyone at MA who has contributed to her growth and development. Providing our girls a Montessori education may be the single best investment we have ever made.

  • IQ tests of children educated according to the Montessori method revealed they enjoyed a higher level of intelligence than the children educated according to the traditional method.

    - Montessori Research
  • Montessori instilled a sense of accountability about getting work done; how to set a plan and follow it through.

    - Mandy van Waes, Class of 2006, Alumni
  • Your school reflects unbelievable commitment and true positive leadership… The values of thoughtfulness, consideration, sensitivity and respect were so palpable – and clear to see – and permeated every aspect of what I experienced while there (visiting)… Please do convey to your staff how enormously impressed I was by everything I saw and heard, and how privileged I felt to be able to enjoy that ‘bird’s eye view’ of a very special place.

  • Grace’s Montessori education continues to pay dividends in terms of how she approaches and operates in the world.

    - S. Foulon, Alumni Parent
  • My daughter is fairly new to Montessori and had taken to the educators and the environment ‘like a duck to water.’ I never imagined her transition would be so smooth. She loves going to school to join her friends and her learning curve since starting early this year is astounding. How many 2 year olds can tell the difference between a toad and a red-eyed tree frog? It’s a joy to take her every morning and see her get so excited about seeing everyone. I wish I had sent her older sister (to MA) when she was a toddler. The children truly flourish (at MA).

    - Parent, Toddler Program Letter
  • In short, we love Montessori Academy of London Toddler Program and we know our sons do too. We feel that it has contributed to our sons’ vocabulary, creativity, confidence, individuality, discipline and friendships. It is providing a vital foundation for their future learning and relationship building. The choice of this school over a traditional daycare was an easy decision for our family.

    - Parent, Toddler Program Letter
  • We value the many opportunities for parent involvement. You are able to join the children during ‘Open Class,’ where you get to take part in … and do classroom work with your child as well as other special events. Parent information nights regarding different aspects of the Montessori curriculum are also very helpful in terms of gaining new knowledge and skills on how to facilitate your own child’s development.

    - Parent, Toddler Program Letter
  • We see how the Toddler program fosters generosity, empathy, intellectual curiosity, the love of learning, self-confidence, focus and determination in our young daughter. We feel confident that the Montessori curriculum is meeting and exceeding our child’s learning and development needs and would not hesitate to recommend to others considering the program for their children.

    - Parent, Toddler Program Letter
  • I love that the children find activities they love within all areas, and are given many opportunities to explore the outdoors, engage in the arts, and enjoy group activities.
