Each new student to Te Kakano is matched with a Big Buddy from the Year 5 and 6 hubs. One of the important responsibilities our buddies have is to support our students during break times and whole school events such as our Whakangahau. They have done a wonderful job of helping our students settle in and feel comfortable within the school grounds.
We have had a lot of fun getting to know more about our buddies through play since the beginning of the year and we are looking forward to working alongside and sharing our learning with them during the year. There is a wonderful display in our classroom of our students with their big buddies. Please feel free to have a look and talk to your child about their buddy.
