BIC… ‘Because I Care’ is a Grade 4 initiative that uses a buddy system to create a strong sense of family within the grade. Each term two classes are paired up and each child is assigned a buddy. Meetings are held every two weeks and a number of questions are explored together. BIC is a time where all the Grade 4’s get to learn and discover new things about others and themselves.

The BIC programme aims to extend each child’s sense of empathy, help develop their integration skills and most importantly make friends that will become like family throughout the year.

Last week, was E-colour Week and the Grade 4 Family thought it only fitting to use one of our BIC meetings to explore their buddies E-colour. They were set the task of finding out ‘what made their buddy tick’. Through exploring and understanding their potential limiters and tendencies, the Grade 4’s, were able to get a better understanding of the different E-colours.

Through this meeting the Grade 4’s learnt that it is important to understand their buddy’s E-Colours as well as the ability to see differences in personalities as an essential part to building a great co-op team, developing leaders and engaging effectively in the Sun Valley learning environment.

The Grade Four’s had a fantastic time embracing their buddies E-Colours!
