Today was the first visit from our Grade Ten buddies, this is part of our school wide values program. The children were delighted to engage with the older students. The older students modeled the school values as they guided the kindergarten children.The high school students showed the children areas of the school they use like the science lab. The kindergarten reciprocated by showing the roof play area.
We will use this first encounter as another way of extending our learning community. It was wonderful to hear the children discuss their engagement with the older children.
- It was so cool. The big kids are cool.
- I like my buddy.
- I want to do this again.
- Look… look I see the buddies on the playground. It is their playtime.
- I like there is a person for me.
- They were kind and helped me.
- It was fun.
