Playground Friends Update

In October 2013, we commenced our Playground Friends programme when interested pupils applied for the position which gives pupils the opportunity to develop their social skills, boost their confidence and have a sense of responsibility.

Playground friends continue to do a wonderful job, each individual has now completed training and are developing fantastic leadership qualities, sharing problem solving ideas with their peers and been a helping hand to staff.
