Year 12s and their Year 2 Buddies

In Term 2 the Year 12 students continue to enjoy their regular catch up mentoring sessions with their Year 2 buddies.

The goal of this initiative is to develop relationships between the younger and older children, enhancing the sense of a friendly and supportive school community. There are benefits for the older buddy in acknowledging their leadership, responsibility and pride in their ability to be helpful. The students participate in structured activities together which creates a sense of belonging and confidence in communication.

Overall, this interaction has a positive effect on the younger and older students, building up a healthy rapport and social bonds across different year groups.
