Buddy Stop Program

During terms 3 and 4 this year one of our Interns Sarah Nursey-Bray has been working with a group of Primary Peer Mediators. This is a group of approximately 12 students representing all grades in the middle and upper primary who have come together to talk about how they, as Peer Mediators, can help other students to problem solve and to promote a safe and positive school community. One of the practical examples of this is promoting the ‘Buddy Stop’. The students worked together to create Buddy Stop posters which will be used in primary classrooms to give children an idea of what they can do if they are struggling during break time, but also reminds older students of their role in offering peer support to younger students who may need a friend. We had help from the Student Voice photographers and then worked together to make the posters. Well done everyone!

Year 6/7 Design and Technology

In Design and Technology this term, our 6/7 classes (Mr Wall, Ms Lush and Ms Read) were given the task of making their own side-show games for Remembrance Day.


“We were put into groups of four or five. In our groups we were required to discuss possible game choices and skills required for our games. To help us choose we discussed The Royal Adelaide show games and researched how these games worked and whether or not they were effective.


Once we had planned and designed our games, we moved on to creating our games. We used recycled boxes and used whatever sources were available at the time. Once we had created our masterpieces, we tested them out with other upper primary classes. They were all effective and fun to play. We then had to evaluate our games by developing an investigation on how we worked as a group and if the game was effective.


Remembrance Day finally came around and we set up our games up under the cola in front of the McClure unit. All funds raised by our games went towards the establishing Nature Play spaces within the school, creating a great, fun atmosphere for the day.”
