Year 5 Visit to Roseville

Today some of the Year 5 students visited Roseville to meet their new buddies. Our visit to Roseville is a part of our Buddy Program. The feedback and buzz from the students on the way back indicated how much they enjoyed their first visit!

Angie's reflectionToday the Year 5 students from 5/6I visited our lovely Roseville buddies for the last time this year. As we were walking to Roseville, many students reflected on the fond memories they have shared with their Roseville buddy. The most beautiful relationships have been developed over they year between the Roseville residents and the students, it has been delightful to witness each visit. Angie wrote a reflection of her time in the Roseville buddy programme this year. It is a heartfelt and honest recount of a truly wonderful buddy initiative that we have at St Charles.

Roseville Buddy Program

Yesterday the Year 5 students from 5/6I visited Roseville. There seems to be a common trend with our Roseville visits…the day starts off with gloomy weather (often rain as we are about to leave), we then brave the elements and head off to Roseville. Upon arriving, the weather clears up and we enter to smiling faces waiting for us in the warm and comfy lounge room at Roseville.
To witness the joy and excitement from the students and also the Roseville buddies, is a truly beautiful sight! One Roseville resident shared with me how much he looks forward to the visits from the students and how well-mannered and considerate they all are. The Year 5 students each brought with them either a picture book, ipad or deck of cards to share with their buddy.  Everyone was having such a good time that we lost track of the time!! What a beautiful buddy program, community link and bond we have with Roseville.
