Guideline for Students


8. Integrate into the Class Group and/or a Peer GROUP


  1. Having had previous unsatisfactory experiences at school or experiencing these for the first time does not mean that they will not be changed.
  2. Belonging to a group: needs and responsibilities. Belonging to a group may be important for you because of affective needs, power issues, for entertainment or through other forms of association (moral, playful, etc.). Groups give you a sense of pleasure, excitement and power. They are also very important for you in terms of self-esteem, selfhood and change. However, belonging to a group may also cause stress. You may feel it difficult to cope with your group
  3. Cooperation and group work. From the adolescence, you integrate several networks (in sports, youth associations, neighbourhood ‘gangs’ or schools) and you play a definite role in each of them. In that capacity you are influenced by others and can influence others.
  4. Participate in school life and activities organised by the school (class representative, festivities…)
  5. Participate in activities and initiatives organised by the community (sport club, community centres…)
