Buddy Program

The Buddy Program at St Mark’s provides our Little Lions and Reception students with a new friend, a mentor and a familiar face in the playground.

At the beginning of the year, our Little Lions and Reception students are paired with a Year 6 Buddy. During the first year of school, ‘Buddies’ will spend time together - reading, working and playing. It is a program that students, both junior and senior, look forward to and remember fondly as they grow.

The Buddy Program helps students entering their first year of primary school to feel safe, valued and connected to the school community. The program builds strong relationships and research shows children benefit immensely - with younger students feeling safe and cared for, and older students feeling valued and respected.
