Buddy program

Westgarth operates a 'buddy' program across all year levels.


Prep students are generally buddies with Year 5-6 students.


Students in the Years 3-6 are inducted regarding the responsibilities of being a buddy and every few weeks the buddy grades get together for an activity. 


As all students have had a buddy over the years, the program runs very successfully and older students are always happy to become the mentor buddy. 


On occasion, the Prep buddies and Year 5-6 buddies spend time at lunchtime playing together.
