Special Friends Program
Eagle Point Primary School runs a special program to support some of the students at our school. Volunteers from our local community become involved in working with identified students on a one to one basis. They come in once a week for approximately one hour to complete activities of mutual interest. The aim of the program is to develop positive self esteem for the children involved, where they have a ‘special friend’ to do activities with, having a positive mentor to assist the children in making links to our local community.
Looking for volunteers
This a very special program that has been initiated in our school over the past few years. Special Friends is where we have local community members aligning with children who have a need for a friendly caring adult. Some children need the opportunity to be heard, to have a friend and just to have fun with someone who cares. It is a time where the children have a mentor to talk to, work with and just enjoy. It is one of the most worthwhile programs we have on offer.
We are always looking for volunteers for this program. If you, or someone you know, are interested in becoming a special friend, please contact the school.
