The Peer Education Project

The Peer Education Project

The Peer Education Project (PEP) is a secondary school mental health programme, available to all UK and International British schools. In Kazakhstan, Haileybury Astana is the first school to implement the project in the education system.

At Haileybury Astana, we started the project last year in November, and since then we have trained teachers to lead peer education sessions. As part of the project, Senior School students held peer-to-peer sessions where other students were free to ask for support.

This semester we selected students in Years 10 and 12 who volunteered to be Peer Educators. They have been trained in small groups and now teach five lessons related to Mental Health challenges to their peers in Years 7 and 8 during tutoring sessions.

We look forward to the success of this project at our school, as Haileybury Astana strives to support the well-being of all students so that they can reach their full potential and enjoy life at school.

HASTMUN 2023 is a student-led Model United Nations (MUN) conference where young people can come together to discuss global issues. This year's theme, chosen by the students themselves, was "Mitigating injustice for a fairer future".

The word "KNAMM" means "come to us" in Russian, and is also an abbreviation of the names of the students who organised the exhibition: Kamilla, Naira, Anar, Merei and Maria.
