The CHAT team are a small group of Year 10 pupils who are trained as peer mentors in order to support any student within the school community.

Having successfully applied for the much sought after role, the CHAT team receive training in basic counselling skills and mediation. They also conduct themselves as positive role models around the school site. 

Every lunchtime, they staff the CHAT room, which is based in NEWID (T3).  This is run as a drop in for anyone who wishes to access their support, whatever the issue. 

CHAT also play a significant role in transition for pupils coming up to Olchfa from primary school.  Linked to each form, the CHATs help pupils settle in, find their way around the place and make new friends.
