Our students have really enjoyed catching up with their Prep buddies so far this year! It was fun to sit and have lunch together and learn more about them.
This program is a fantastic opportunity for the Grade 5 students to learn the skills needed to be leaders while practising clear communication and patience. They make their buddies feel welcome and relaxed in their first year of school and help them to gain confidence and social skills that help them to interact with their peers.
We meet on several occasions each term with our buddies to complete a range of different activities including maths counting and place value games, reading and reflecting on picture storybooks, and inquiry-related craft.
