Helping Friends


Helping Friends are a group of children, one from each class, who have been chosen to be play leaders in school. 

To be a Helping Friend you have to be a good listener, a good friend and kind. 



In our first meeting, we played parachute games together and learnt how to include friends in a game of ‘Ring a Roses’.  We will continue to meet over the rest of the year and learn other games that we can share with the rest of our friends in school.  The goal is to give the children the skills to play together and develop peer on peer social interactions.
