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
