To encourage inclusion and kindness on the playground, the elementary school cut the ribbon on a new playground buddy bench during the school’s first Friendship Day.

The buddy bench, purchased through a Royal Education Foundation grant, aims to ensure that every student who may feel isolated or left out has someone to play with during recess. All students are encouraged to invite those sitting on the bench to play.

During the ribbon-cutting, students, wearing yellow as a symbol of friendship, read poems and sang about friendship.
