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.  One of our transition sessions involves a treasure hunt with their buddy designed to build the relationship between the students and at the same time building familiarity with all parts of their new school.  

A weekly buddy program session will commence once students have started school for peer led developmental play activities in the classroom and playground.  The program continues throughout Grade 1. 

For more information about the Buddy program or transition in general please contact our Transition Coordinator: Lynn Bok on (03) 9754 2505 or email [email protected]
