Open to Grade 5 Students
The Beechwood Citizens are Grade 5 students who are trained to help their younger peers learn and practice appropriate play. These Grade 5 students benefit from this program by allowing them to improve their interpersonal skills and assume a leadership role.
Our Citizens take on many roles at school that include monitoring the playground, handing out and collecting equipment and acting as hall monitors during recess and lunch. They are expected to be visible to all students when they are acting as Citizens by wearing a blue vest. It is an honour to be chosen as a Beechwood Citizens and they are seen as leaders in promoting the eight values encouraged at our school.
