Our Year Sixes are buddied up with a prep from the first Orientation day the preps come to school. These older kids-younger kids relationships are really lovely to see. Being a grade 6 buddy is something the kids all look forward to and we participate in weekly buddy actiivities every Friday afternoon. The older buddy is an extra person that is looking out for a little person in the school, someone to help with shoelaces, jumpers, to give a cuddle to first thing in the morning. It really is beautiful to see the way the older kids look after the younger ones and we do lots of talking about how to be 'a good buddy'
