REMEMBER being a young student and idolising those in the grades above?
It was also interesting to imagine what life was like for these "older" and "cooler" students.
However, interaction with these older year groups was often limited many years ago, but that's not the case any more, especially for Yanco Public School and Yanco Agricultural High School.
Last term the two schools mixed together in fortnightly sessions where those in year 9 and 10 from YAHS headed to visit their younger peers to run through some sporting skill sessions.
Together with their teachers they came up with the activities and were able to pass on their skills and knowledge with the Yanco Public students in kindergarten to year 6.
The program, held at McCaughey Park, was a way for the students to get to know and learn from each other.
"Our (students) have enjoyed participating in small group activities, learning new and improving on their existing skills for a range of sports," Yanco Public principal Tarnya Grigg said.
"The program has given our students a heightened level of confidence and the opportunity to have fun."
The sessions each fortnight were held on Tuesdays for the infants groups and Wednesdays for those in the primary age group for one hour.
"It's been a great opportunity for the year 10 students at Yanco Ag to build their organisation and leadership skills," Mrs Grigg said.
The partnership will be continuing in the coming months.
