Buddies

Every Prep student is given a friendly and helpful buddy from the year 5 class. Year 5 students are chosen because there is the opportunity to create longer lasting relationships over a two year period. The purpose of the buddy program is to support a smooth transition for children starting school. Children participate in fortnightly, structured activities together as well as being provided with opportunities to identify other activities they might do with and for each other. Our “small school, big heart” philosophy shines through when students seek out their prep buddies during playtimes just to make sure they are enjoying themselves at school.
