What do schools receive?

Once accepted as a Better Buddies school, you will be provided with access to the restricted Teachers' section of the Better Buddies website.  A unique school password and log in will be emailed to the nominated Better Buddies Coordinator to allow teachers at your school to access Better Buddies information.

Additional resources will also be published on the website as they are developed and become available.

The sponsorship also provides a Better Buddies Kit to your school consisting of:

  • Better Buddies Folder containing: 
    • Introduction and rationale
    • Implementation
    • Information for parents
    • Training for senior buddies
    • Activities and templates
    • Better Buddies Framework DVD (a short DVD to show to your whole staff or parent community)
    • Better Buddies Framework CD (includes PowerPoint for staff/parents and notes, as well as a copy of the Framework Activities for you to share with those teachers involved in Better Buddies.)
  • A Better Buddies teacher puppet
  • A Buddy Bear
  • Two Better Buddies posters for display in your school.

In February of your first year of implementation, you will receive 50 Buddy Bears for your school.

Once accepted as a Better Buddies, school there is no need to reapply for subsequent years.  Your school is automatically included as a Better Buddies school into the future and you will continue to receive support and assistance from the Better Buddies Team, as well as access to new resources as they become available.
