Buddy Bench - Including Others


Teachers will discuss feeling lonely - being new to school; not being able to find your friends; or being left out of games.

Identify where Buddy Benches are located (back playground, trialling one near staffroom and COLA). 

Buddy Bench Rules:

  • If you are sitting on the bench, play with the first classmate who invites you.
  • While you are sitting on the bench, look around for a game you can join.
  • Two friends sitting on the bench can turn to each other and invite each other to play.
  • The bench isn't for socializing. Only sit there if you can't find anyone to play with.
