ST Au­gus­tine’s Prep stu­dents in­vite their ted­dies to af­ter­noon tea

The St Au­gus­tine’s Prep and year six stu­dents bud­died up for an af­ter­noon of fun and so­cial con­nec­tions in the last week of term one.

St Au­gus­tine’s stu­dents and teach­ers are com­mit­ted to mak­ing all chil­dren at our school feel safe, wel­come and part of the Saints com­mu­nity. In say­ing this, all prep stu­dents are bud­died with a year six stu­dents, whom they con­nect with on a daily ba­sis through­out their prep year.

Our term one ‘Teddy Bear’s Pic­nic’ catch up was a SEL (So­cial Emo­tional Learn­ing) fo­cused fun af­ter­noon.

The Preps, their bud­dies and their ted­dies shared a story to­gether read by one of year six stu­dents, cre­ated Easter/Lent cards to­gether and iced and ate Easter bis­cuits to­gether.

By spend­ing group time and one on one time with their Bud­dies, the preps are em­pow­ered and en­cour­aged to make strong and mean­ing­ful so­cial con­nec­tions with the stu­dent lead­ers of our school.

We look for­ward to many more of our child-cen­tred Buddy get-to­geth­ers.
