The Support Buddies are pupils from our Primary 7 classes who have volunteered to take on various roles to support younger pupils in the school.
The Support Buddies this year are:
P7A: Hayley, Hannah, Talhah, Connor, Falaq and Mia
P7B: Emma, Maya, Noah, Lucy, Leenah
This year we have Little Learner Buddies, Dyslexia Buddies, Lego Buddies and Chill Out Buddies.
Little Learner Buddies support in the Primary 1 classes each week by playing games and other activities with the pupils.
Dyslexia Buddies are paired with younger pupils to support when a younger pupil is identified as being dyslexic. At an initial Buddy meeting suggestions can be made about things which may help in school. The Buddy will also be a familiar face to approach in the playground. During November 2018, our Buddies helped to lead a range of activities, including their Dyslexia presentation at our Friday assembly during Dyslexia Awareness week:
Lego Buddies help to support the weekly Lego Group sessions held at lunchtimes, by supporting trios of younger pupils working together to build Lego kits.
The Chill-Out Zone Buddies are involved in setting up and running a quiet zone in the playground on two lunchtimes each week. This will provide a quiet area with relaxing activities which pupils will be able to access on occasion.
