Milgate runs a Buddies Program where Foundation students are partnered with Year 6 students.
A formal program is developed by the Foundation and Year 6 teachers to develop a strong, positive relationship between the children. Our Buddies undertake fun activities together through the year, such as getting to know you activities or tasks connected to their current Unit of Inquiry.
The Year 6 students are encouraged to support and offer guidance to their buddy during their first year of schooling. This program is great for helping children transition to school.
