At Gold 92.5 we are proud to connect with the community in every way and our ‘Buddy Bench’ program is a way to connect with our schools, parents and families.
The Buddy Bench is a permanent bench in the school where children are encouraged to sit if they are feeling lonely, bullied or have no friends that day.
- If a child sits on the ‘Buddy Bench’ they must say yes to the first friend who invites them to play or walk and talk
- If a child sees someone else sitting on the ‘Buddy Bench’ they must invite them to play or walk and talk
- If two children are sitting on the ‘Buddy Bench’ they should turn to each other and invite each other to play or walk and talk
We are very proud to have already installed many benches into school’s around the Gold Coast, and we are excited to be bringing this concept back!
Our favourite builder Aaron Winter (House Rules 2017) will even be helping us as we visit schools to install benches.
At Gold 92.5 we want to continue to spread the message that Bullying is NOT OK, and that all kids should have the opportunity to enjoy their time at school.
