Our Buddies have been trained by Mrs Howell, our Nurture Assistant. This training involved the children learning how to model their school christian values and how to be a good example and encourage others to do the right thing. The buddies have explored what it means to have empathy and compassion to be able to help others in our school. They have learnt how to make good and wise decisions when they deal with problems that the children they are helping have at school.
