WHOLE school Buddy program

The Whole School Buddy Program was introduced in 2012 and compliments the School’s You Can Do It! program (YCDI). Each buddy group consisting of students from Prep to Year 6, meets twice a term to participate in a range of activities to foster friendships across the school.

The school also runs a 1:1 buddy program, pairing up Preps with Year 5 students and Year 1s with Year 6 students. During Term 4, our Year 4s are linked to a kindergarten buddy to assist the transition to Prep.

Testimonials

It is refreshing that fathers are just as welcome as mothers in school life. From Kindergarten where I have the opportunity to participate in my youngest boy’s class to school camp that I was fortunate to attend, I have always been encouraged and warmly welcomed. I have also thoroughly enjoyed participating in class room help for all my boys.

The move into the grade 5/6 area which is separate from the rest of the school gives the kids a real sense of being the ‘big kids’ and is a start to their transition to secondary school and being more responsible.

The school garden is such a fantastic feature of our school. Garden Club students have the opportunity to learn about all aspects of gardening from the role of healthy soil to how to use silverbeet to make delicious pizzas. Science, nutrition and sustainability are explored in a truly hands on environment.

We run a progressive and innovative technology program to produce true 21st Century Citizens. Students in Prep enjoy using iPads and students in the senior school will be instructed with Ultrabooks as a part of our 1-to-1 program.
