We would like to introduce you to our new ‘Buddies’ for 2017 – 2018.
We elect school Buddies annually, two from each year group. Our Buddies take their role extremely seriously and work hard to ensure our school provides children with a safe, non- threatening environment in which to work and play. They meet every week with Mrs Jackson to discuss any issues regarding friendship and bullying in school. They also take part in Community activities that promote friendship and kindness.
So far in this academic year, our Buddies have been working hard. They have created a set of leaflets to support our anti-bullying work in school.
Please look back soon to see more projects our Buddies are working on in 2017 -2018.
2015 – 2016 projects
We have a winner! When Scoop from the Green dog campaign visited our school he challenged the buddies to design a poster encouraging responsible dog ownership. He was pleased to return to school in January 2016 to present Chantel with her winners certificate for an excellent poster reminding dog owners to, “Clean it up! Bag it. Bin it.” Thank you to all the Buddies for their inspiring posters and congratulations Chantel.
During November, the Buddies worked with Mrs Macpherson to put together shoeboxes for the Operation Christmas Child campaign.
They gathered donations from parents and members of staff and placed them together in shoeboxes.
In July, the Buddies worked with the School Council to organise a sponsored walk. This was to raise money to sponsor a guide dog puppy. They completed the walk and raised an excellent £353.07. Well done to the Buddies and School Council!
