Buddy Bus Stop

The Buddy Bench is the ‘go to’ place for any child in our school in need of a friend. Any pupil who finds themselves lost, alone, or needing some fun at break or lunch time, can take a seat on the Buddy Bench and wait for a friend to stop by. We encourage students to use the bench, not only as a place to wait for a buddy but also as a place to pick up a friend.

“It’s somewhere for when people have no friends to play with when they’re lonely.” 

“It’s where we get friends.”
