The Saint Hilary School Buddy program is intended to foster connections and friendship between our older students and younger students. The Buddy program allows our older students to serve as mentors, modeling behavior for our younger students. Buddy activities are ongoing throughout the year and include special art projects, community service projects, planning Liturgies, field trips and play time in the play yard. Buddies attend monthly mass together with the older students modeling proper behavior for the younger ones. Kindergarteners are paired with buddies in Grade 6, Grade 1 with Grade 7, Grade 2 with Grade 8 and Grade 3 with Grade 5. Saint Hilary graduates repeatedly comment that they still keep in touch with their SHS buddy!
