Barriburn is getting a Friendship Chair!
“Friendship Seats were an innovative extension of the Alannah & Madeline Foundation’s Better Buddies program, designed to create friendly and caring school communities to help reduce bullying.
Friendship Seats are a way for students who feel lonely to make friends in the playground. By sitting on the seat, teachers and other students are alerted that they would like to be included in lunchtime activities.
The idea behind Friendship Seats was to support children who experience feelings of isolation or sadness at school.”
Our Friendship Seat is a collaborative project with the Lions Club of South Vermont and The Men’s Shed at Vermont.
We are very lucky to have this chair made for our Kindergarten.
