Buddy Program

At the beginning of each year, all Prep students are allocated a Year 5/6 'Buddy' to further support them with their transition to Primary school. The role of the 'Buddy' is to build a positive relationships with the Prep student and to take the time to get to know them. The Year 5/6 teachers spend time at the beginning of the year talking to the students about how to be an effective 'Buddy'.

 

The Year 5/6 'Buddy' visit the Prep classrooms throughout the year. They also take the time to visit the Prep student in the yard during recess and lunch to ensure that they have a friend to play with and that they are feeling happy and safe.
