Buddies Programme

At St Patrick's each child has an older child who is their 'buddy'

Buddies Programme

St Pat’s Buddies Programme

Our Buddies program is designed to help reduce bullying and create friendly and caring school environments. The program builds strong relationships and research shows children benefit immensely – with younger students feeling safe and cared for, and older students feeling valued and respected.


Your buddy can:

  • help you in lots of different ways
  • look out for you!
  • help you, especially when you are new at school
  • play with you at recess and lunch times(but not every day!)
  • have morning tea with you
  • spend time in your class and do fun activities with you
  • organise games for you at recess or lunch times
  •  maybe help you with your reading or your schoolwork
