Student Wellbeing

Buddy Time

Students at St Thomas are a Buddy to each other.

Older children are paired with younger children. The goal is to develop relationships between the younger and older children, enhancing the sense of a friendly and supportive school community. The older buddy has the opportunity to develop their leadership, responsibility and pride in their ability to be helpful. 

Having and/or being a Buddy promotes social and support networks for children and promotes a sense of community and belonging in the school.
