This week the Kinder children met their student buddies as they prepare to transition from Kinder to Prep. The Kinder children and buddies worked together to colour in their invites to the upcoming Teddy Bears Picnic in Term 4.

The Teddy Bears Picnic is the second opportunity that the Kinder children will get to know their buddy. At the picnic the children are encouraged to sit with their buddy and share a special plate of food. Usually this will be followed with a play together in the Kinder playground. It a informal way for the children to become familiar with other children within the School.

The Buddy program at St Johns Lutheran Primary school is an integral part of our Transition to School program. The buddies will meet regularly with their assigned Prep buddy in 2019, both inside and outside of the classroom.
