 How our Mentors helped us in Y7


Being in Year 11 means these students have been there and done that! They know how it feels to be the ‘newbies’ in school and so know some great tips to help you as you go through your first year at BSCS.

Don’t just take our word for it, here’s what some year 7’s have to say about our amazing mentors!

They are fun and make you feel better when you are finding things hard



It’s like having a big brother in school


I like talking to my mentor because she understands


They really helped me when I had problems with my friends



I like it when I see them around school because they say Hi and it makes me feel safe



They help us think about ways that can help



They are kind, and they listen
