The buddy program is an important part of both our transition into primary school and leadership offered by Senior students.
Grade 5 and 6 students are buddied up with a Grade Prep or One student. This is particularly valuable at the start of the year when new students are finding their way around the school. The Grade 5 and 6 students show the new students such places as: toilets, canteen, oval, Auditorium, Ryan Hall and regularly have lunch together. As the year unfolds the buddies assist the Preps and Ones with their classroom activities and also create Maths board games and online quizzes to engage with their Prep and Grade One buddies.
This program accentuates the student bodies caring and considerate nature, and provides students with opportunities to forge strong friendships and grow in their own personal learning.
