The 'Cobbers' program involves students in the senior classes working with students in the junior classes once a week.
The senior students have the important role of helping the younger students settle in to the school environment.
The presence of senior students in the Prep and Grade 1 classrooms helps to remove any apprehension younger students might have about older students in the playground.
This program gives the junior student a “friendly face” to seek out in the playground for support if needed.
It also provides older students with the chance to be positive role models of appropriate behaviours.
