Sometimes a Friendship Bench can help

The Pre-Prep are learning to use their Friendship Bench. We are grateful to the Prior Award students who painted the sign and POPP, our parent association, who donated the lovely bench.

The idea is that if a child feels lonely at playtime they can sit on the bench and wait for a friend to ask them to play. All the children are speedy at watching out for someone on their own and realise that if two children are on the bench they could all play together.
