Successful ‘Buddy System’-The buddy system operated for the past eight weeks by Ms. Hamman who has been taking girls from 6th Class to Rosedale, Kilmacow to meet residents there has proven to be a great success. The residents and their ‘buddies’ formed a great bond and exchanged stories while the girls brought great energy and youth to Rosedale. Such was the success of the initiative that residents looked forward to the Wednesday afternoon visits and they look forward to the present 5th class girls coming to Rosedale next year. It was an enriching experience for all involved in the project.
