The Buddy Program sees our older students in the Senior Unit working co-operatively with our younger students. The students are presented with an assigned task and work together until it is completed. Buddy sessions between grades occur throughout the year. During this time buddies chat and get to know each other. We find that our Senior Unit students relish this responsibility and it allows our Junior Unit students to have an extra person in the yard that they know. The Buddy Program also bridges the gap between the senior and junior school and assists the Preps at the beginning of their educational journey while enhancing the older students’ skills in helping and caring for others.
