Prep Buddies

The transition to primary school from a home and kinder environment can be a bit daunting to some children. To make the transition easier, Montrose Primary School offers:


Transition activities specially targeted for the needs of students coming into Prep.

Dates and details of transition activities are listed in the 'Prep Transition' section of the website or from the school office.


Buddies Program is held once a week and involves students in Year 5 and Prep. Each Prep child is paired up with a Year 5 child and they participate in a range of activities such as: Teddy Bear's Picnic, making of books, craft activities and using technology.


The aims of the Buddies Program are to:

  • Ease the transition into Primary School for the Prep child by providing them with a safe, reliable and positive buddy.
  • Develop leadership skills amongst the Year 5 students.
  • Foster a strong sense of school spirit across the school.
  • Provide an avenue of support and assistance for learning, enabling enrichment and revision activities to be undertaken.
  • Enhance the school culture of looking after and caring for others around us.


"Buddies" is a very enjoyable and positive activity that allows all involved to feel special and valued.
