Peer Support and Buddy Programs

HFPS-146

Our students have the opportunity to be involved in Peer Support for students during recess and lunchtimes. This program provides games and support for students who are new to our school and encourages strong relationships across all year levels. All students are encouraged to propose and lead lunchtime activities such as indoor board games which is now a regular part of winter lunchtime activities.

 

Our multi-year level classes support the development of strong relationships across age groups resulting in our students having many big and little brothers and sisters. We think of ourselves as an extended family where the needs of others are our priority.

 

The Better Buddies program operates across classes, with a range of regular shared activities, peer teaching and sharing of achievements. A feature of this is our fortnightly assembly which is a showcase of our learning with all classes contributing.
