Buddy Bench

​Mr Mac and Pricey try out the Buddy Bench.

​Steve Price from radio 4TO came to visit Kelso last Monday (31 August 2015) to present the school with a Buddy Bench. The bench which has been kindly sponsored by 4TO and Bunnings, is designed to counteract loneliness and bullying in the playground.

The bench, which will be placed near the Anzac Memorial Garden, has a set of 3 rules on it.

• If you sit on the ‘Buddy Bench’ you must say yes to the first friend who invites you to play or walk and talk.
• If you see someone else sitting on the ‘Buddy Bench’ you must invite them to play or walk and talk.
• If two of you are sitting on the ‘Buddy Bench’ you should turn to each other and invite each other to play or walk and talk.
While Pricey was here. he also interviewed Mr McDonnell and Cathane, one of our Year 6 students.
