The Big Brother Little Brother program matches our Junior School students in Year 5 with our Senior School students in Year 10, to provide guidance and friendship with the aim of becoming a long-term positive role model.
Throughout the year, students connect with their brothers twice per term, to allow for genuine friendships to form, the building of trust, mutual respect and collaboration. By the time our Little Brothers start Year 7, their Big Brothers are in Year 12, and this helps to provide a positive start to their Senior School experience.
The first session of Big Brother Little Brother began last Friday. Teamed into House groups, the boys began with a ‘Getting to Know You’ activity to find out more about each other.
Later activities in the year will include Big Brothers designing their own activities to deliver to their Little Brothers, demonstrating their leadership, creativity and teamwork work skills.
A big thank you to all the Heads of House and Junior School staff who assisted on the day to make the program possible.
