The transition into primary school can be quite overwhelming for some children. This daunting feeling can continue once the child begins school. To school-life easier for Prep students, Yarra Road Primary School offers a Buddy Program. On a very regular basis, students in Year 5 and Prep get together for some fun, educational activities.
Each Prep child is paired with a Year 5 student and they participate in a range of activities from Teddy Bear’s Picnics and engaging craft activities to using technology such as computers and iPads.
The Buddy Program continues for the students in the following year (Grade 1 and Grade 6) fostering a real sense of belonging and friendship.
