Each year our Prep students get buddied up with a Year 5/6 student. We believe it is really important for all our students to make connections and our Buddy Program allows for a smooth transition into primary school life.

The purpose of a buddy program is to support a smooth transition for children starting school. Schools report that the programs promote social and support networks for children beginning Prepand promote a sense of community and belonging in the school.
