The BGGS Study Buddy Program involves Year 11 students volunteering to become study buddies with interested younger students in Years 7 and 8. Senior students assist their buddy in developing useful study habits such as organisation, time management, prioritising, and spelling and reading strategies.
Year 11 students will receive training in these areas to allow them to assist their buddies, and will spend at least 30 minutes with their buddy each week at a time negotiated between themselves.
The Study Buddy Program has been hugely successful in the past and many students have benefitted from the wisdom of older students’ experiences at the School. We encourage all Year 11 students to join and share their knowledge and skills with younger girls at the School.
Girls wanting to participate in the program should contact Study Buddy Coordinators, Mrs Paula Quinn, or Mrs Kate Kildey, prior to Week 3. Alternatively, girls can access the Study Buddies page on Minerva, to find further information about the Program.
