The Fraser Primary School buddy program is an important and valued part of our school. This program promotes the Fraser Primary SCARF values and PBL expectations. It focuses on building the social and academic needs of all students. It begins in term 4 when the younger students are in preschool and are beginning their transition to kindergarten. Throughout the term the year 5 students visit their preschool buddy to share in activities such as, having lunch together or participating in cooperative play sessions.
When school commences the following year, the new year 6 students begin their leadership role within the school community by assisting their younger peers to develop an understanding of what is expected of them now that they are in kindergarten. The year 6 students are given fluro hats to assist the younger students to identify year 6 students on the playground. Year 6 students wearing their hat can be approached by any kindergarten student who needs help. The year 6 buddies also provide support during whole school events to ensure their younger peers has a positive experience. The year 6 students are given regular opportunities to reflect on their role as a year 6 buddy and identify any areas they need advice or teacher assistance with.
