Buddy programs are a fantastic part of many schools. Students in their first year of school are partnered with a student from grade six for activities and fun. Buddy systems aren’t just beneficial for the younger students; they help older students understand how important they are, as an individual, within their school. Big buddies can see that, who they are and how they think and behave contributes to our school culture. Buddies might play games together, practise sight words or read books...Regardless of the activity; the benefit is in the friendships made between the little buddy and their big buddy!
