Rotary on Capricorn Coast have kindly donated two buddy benches for the Yeppoon High school to be used as “Buddy Benches”.
The benches are located at the front of the Multi Learning Centre.
Students know the benches are a safe place and are encouraged that if some one is sitting on the bench, to stop, sit and ask if they are OK.
Buddy benches provide a practical way for students to explore being a friend and an opportunity show empathy.
Within the Rotary ethical framework, we see that these benches will build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS and BENIFIT all.
“To make a friend, you need to be a friend” and “Kindness is contagious!”
