All students have the opportunity to become a buddy for an international student either for a short or long term visit. Local buddies act as mentors during the school day and will often be accompanied to lessons by their international buddies. The buddy system enables both parties to learn more about each other’s cultures, history, foods, traditions and education systems. Many cross cultural, long lasting friendships and invitations for our local students to travel overseas as guests of their international buddies family, have resulted as an outcome of this very successful system.
