At Barons Court, our year six pupils apply for prefect roles that they are specifically interested in and the roles that they feel they can make a difference to across the whole school, once appointed. A mentor is one of the prefect roles. This year, year six came up with the idea to split the mentors into two teams: Internal Mentors and External Mentors.
The 2018-2019 Internal Mentors (Archie, Feyi, Seraphine, Orcun, Maddie and Harley) described their role as, "Our role is to work alongside the younger children and provide opportunities for them to interact with new children. So far this year, we have spent time nurturing the nursery children within Phase 1 and have launched the all-new improved Buddy System; this is a little different to last year, as we have changed the activities for the better. Please keep an eye on this page to see our progress throughout the year."
The External Mentors look beyond the school. At Barons Court, we pride ourselves on looking after, not only our own school community, but the wider community too. Let me introduce Koran, Eben, Zara and Ryan, who are our External Mentors. "We look forward to working with the elderly this year. We do not just venture next door to Milton House Residential Home; we are also venturing further afield this year. Look out for updates on our brand new project, 'This is Me,' an inter-generational project which helps brighten up the days of those elderly people with dementia."
