|Little Buddies Competition|
Have you a story to tell about your school days? Our competition is open to anyone, who looks back and wonders what a difference it would have made had there been a Buddy Bench in their school ground. We now know how important it is to teach children how to recognise and express their feelings and emotions. We at Buddy Bench strongly believe that early intervention is key to nurturing positive mental health and well being in our children.
To enter the competition, please tell us, via email to email@example.com or comment on the Facebook competition post, liking and sharing also. “How having a Buddy Bench in your school would have made a difference to you”?
The prize is a fabulous little buddy’s custom made mini-Buddy Bench, the Little Buddies Awareness programme and our Robin Red for a junior infant’s class of your choice worth up to €800. The competition will run for the month of September and the winner announced on the Friday 29th.
Friends help give meaning to our lives, fulfil the need to belong, and provide support during tough time. They are pretty central to happiness and well being. Research has also shown that the better the quality of your relationships, the more likely you are to be happy.Being excluded, ignored, or teased is very painful for a young child, so we have built our Little Buddies Programme around teaching kindness, friendship, empathy and compassion.
