On Tuesday the 27th of September the first years were paired with their TY Buddies. The Buddy Programme means that the new first years have an older girl in the school they now know, if they did not have an older sister, cousin or friend already, that they can ask questions or ask for help.
Ms Butler announced the buddies, some of the first years were given 2 buddies as there are more TYs than 1st years this year. After the buddies were announced, the TYs and first years had a little party in the Home Economics kitchen to get to know each other. Ms Butler bought sweets and drinks for the party and it was a good way for the first years to get to know their buddies.
