Playground Buddies officially begin their duties this week. If you feel lonely in the yard, visit a Buddy Bus Stop. One of our lovely Year 5 Playground Buddies will do their best to help you. With their luminous green jackets, they cannot be missed!
The School Council were amazed to read the Buddy application forms received from Year 5. 28 children applied for the chance to become a Playground Buddy and the School Council were so impressed with each one that they decided to appoint them all. Buddies will officially begin their Buddy training next Tuesday with Mrs Clark.
Do you have what it takes to help children who are feeling lonely in the yard? Are you kind, thoughtful and a good listener? Could you be a Playground Buddy?
The School Council are currently looking for Playground Buddies to help those children who come to one of our Buddy Bus Stops in need of help. They have been busy thinking about all of the qualities that a good Buddy should have.
If you would like to apply, please see your School Council member for an application form.
Excited by the delivery of our Buddy Bus Stops, School Council members met to discuss how these might best be used to help children feeling lonely in the yard. Council members explained that it will be important to have thoughtful children playing close to the bus stops if those feeling lost are to receive the help that they need. Could you be one of these helpful children, or Buddies, that the School Council are looking for?
Members of the School Council have been busy working their magic again. Not content with making a huge difference to their local community, the children have turned their attention to how they might be able to help fellow pupils within school.
Members of the School Council explained in their recent meeting that the yard can, at times, be a lonely place for some children. It is not always easy to find someone to play with, especially when close friends are absent or are eating lunch. After a lengthy discussion of possible ways around this issue, the School Council decided upon installing a ‘Buddy Bus Stop’ in each yard. Children who are feeling lost and in need of a friend can come to one of the Bus Stops to receive the help that they need.
