Fifth Years volunteer to be a friendly face to small groups of First Years.

This is especially important in the first few weeks when school is a large and intimidating place. 

Students know where to find their buddies at a set time in the day just to touch base.  

Often it is easier for First Years to approach older students rather than teachers. 

If there is an issue between a student and their buddy, parents should contact the class tutor or Guidance Counsellor—not the buddy. 

There is also a prefect system where students assist in maintaining order in the school and looking out for other students.
