Belle Vue’s Buddy Program

Belle Vue’s Buddy Program
At Belle Vue Primary School, we believe in teaching the ‘whole child’ and supporting students’ academic, social, emotional and personal wellbeing. A major highlight for Grade 5 students is our Buddy Program. Throughout Term 1, students have been getting to know their new prep buddies for 2018.

By participating in collaborative sessions each fortnight, Grade 5 students experience a variety of engaging activities with their buddies. So far, students have participated in play-based learning, dancing, reading and book making. Students have also created ‘Buddy Books’, ‘How Buddies Help Each Other’ posters, and portrait drawings. Throughout the year, students will be engaging in STEM activities, scavenger hunts, sustainability sessions, writing and reading sessions, and craft experiences.

 We believe that our Buddy Program is fundamental in enhancing our students’ social and emotional wellbeing, as students learn to mentor, encourage and learn from their peers. Through this program, we support our Grade 5 students as they develop positive relationships, friendships, responsibility and compassion, as well as fundamental communication, teamwork and leadership skills.

Lastly, by targeting students’ academic, social, emotional and personal wellbeing, we aim to build confident, happy and motivated students who enjoy school and have a strong sense of community connectedness.
