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