Buddy Bench delivered to Beckenham PS
Buddy Bench arrives
At a recent assembly Dr Ken Collins, representing the Rotary Club of Freshwater Bay presented the school with a Buddy Bench. The Buddy Bench is a colourful seat with an important message.
Dr Collins said, “You put a Buddy Bench in the playground, and if a young person is feeling a bit lonely, a bit sad, or kind of doesn’t have any one to interact with they go and sit on this Buddy Bench.”
“If a student sees someone sitting on a Buddy Bench, they go and sit beside them, have a yarn, or say ‘come and play with me’, or ‘how’s your life going’ and that child hopefully doesn’t feel alone.”
The buddy bench is in behind the library in the Chinese Garden area. Thank you to the Rotary Club of Freshwater Bay.
