Buddy program

William Ruthven Primary School has a Prep Buddy Program which helps to make the transition to primary school a positive experience for your child.


Your child will meet their buddy at the start of term 1.


The Prep students see their buddies for a group activity in their classroom each Thursday afternoon before our whole school assembly.


Benefits of the Prep Buddy Program include:

  • Prep students having another positive role model within the school.
  • Prep students having someone to go to if they have a concern in the yard.
  • Prep and Year 6 students developing new and positive relationships.
  • Year 6 students taking on additional responsibilities.
  • Year 6 students learning how to be a positive role model for other students.
