Each new Kindergarten child is assigned a Year Six buddy. The buddy is on hand to greet the Kindergarten child at Orientation. It is a way to introduce these new students and their families to the school. When Year 6 and Kindergarten start the following year, parents are more at ease with their child starting school and students are excited to make a new friend assisting the child in the early weeks with settling into school routines. Lovely friendships are formed through this programme which lasts for many years.
