Buddy Program - John Brotchie and Botany PS

Children with buddies

John Brotchie has over 20 children transitioning to Botany PS in 2019.  The children met their year 5 buddy at the recent Orientation Morning. The educators at John Brotchie and the teachers from Botany School have been working together to further develop the friendships between the buddies.

This week we visited on Monday to become more familiar with the school, the year 5 buddies took photos of all the important places within the school. On Tuesday we returned back and with the help of the year 5 buddies the children made a "Going to school" book.

This has been a great program and will help to support smooth transitions to school for our preschool children. It also gave the buddies an opportunity to develop their leadership and mentor skills.
