Buddies Program

The Wangaratta Primary School Buddy Program supports our friendly and caring student body, where strong cross-aged peer relationships are built and maintained.


All Prep students are allocated a Year 5/6 Buddy to support them with their transition to Primary school and meet regularly with their Buddy through our ongoing Buddy Program sessions. 


Our Year 5 and 6 students are involved in a ‘Buddy Preparation Program’ which helps students understand how to be an effective Buddy. The role of the Senior Buddy is to build a positive relationship with the younger student, to be a positive role model for the student to look up to, and to share the joy of learning and being a student at WPS.
