Better Buddies in Schools

Our Year 7 students work with our Receptions in the Better Buddies Programme.

Better Buddies is a framework to introduce or enhance a buddy system in your school. Buddy systems are designed to support children in their first year of school through working with older students as role models.

The Better Buddies Framework has specifically designed buddy activities focusing on curriculum, social skills, values and benefits for the younger and older buddies.

Many schools use a variety of programs and resources and Better Buddies has been designed to complement these. Other programs such as Friendly Schools and Families and Bounce Back suggest schools develop strong peer relationships and buddy systems which Better Buddies fulfils.

Better Buddies is designed to fit into your particular school environment and is flexible to incorporate all that you do with buddies in your school. This flexibility has led to schools in Dubai, Singapore and Northern Ireland implementing Better Buddies with The Mary Foundation and Red Barnett, Denmark adapting the philosophy of Better Buddies to build their own program Free of Bullying for their Kindergartens and Primary Schools.
