The job of a Friendship Pal is more complex than might be at first recognized. It requires pupils to step outside themselves and play a role, while still remaining familiar and accessible to other children. The activities in the programme are to help pupils to have thought about and prepare for the role, in order to boost their confidence, be effective and avoid creating problems for themselves and others. We had a fantastic day and as you can see from the photos below.
