Foundation Buddy Program

At Belgrave South Primary School we run a Transition Program to make your child’s passage from pre-school to primary school a smooth one.


An important part of the Transition Program is the ‘Foundation Buddy’ program where Foundation students are paired with a grade 5 buddy.

Foundation Students first meet their Buddy as part of the Transition Program.  As part of the transition they go on a treasure hunt with their buddy. This activity is designed to assist new students get to know their Buddy and at the same time become familiar with the school as the Treasure Hunt leads the Foundation Students through the Belgrave South Primary School grounds.

Once Foundation Students commence school they meet their Buddy regularly throughout the year for organised activities in class, around the school as well as an excursion in term four.
