The STUDENT BUDDY PROGRAM is a partnership of parents, staff and community to encourage Buddying of students within a safe and supervised environment.
We believe that Buddying by supportive, nurturing and trained adults can provide a relationship to promote the healthy development of children. Healthy development will include an improved self-concept, better social skills, improved learning and life-long goals. Buddies will assist each child to find their own strengths, talents and dreams.
