Our Friendship Ambassadors wrote this letter to Miss Milewski:
Dear Miss Milewski
We would like a friendship bench so that whenever people do not have any friends they can go there and we can help them find a friend. We think it would be a good idea because we will be able to help more children have fun at playtime. We have also been thinking and we have decided that the bench means other children can also help each other as well as the friendship ambassadors as our school value is kindness. As a group we have decided that we would like the bench that has a jigsaw piece on it because we represent the puzzle pieces and when we fit them together it shows that we can all work as one.
From The Friendship Ambassadors.
Miss Milewski was so impressed by their idea that she immediately wrote to Friends of RFPS asking them if they would fund raise for the bench suggested by the Friendship Ambassadors. They held a Valentines Disco to raise the money and then bought the bench. The bench arrived and some of our Friendship Ambassadors enjoyed helping Mr Watson, our caretaker unpack it and put in on our playground.
This bench now sits under our friendship stop and whenever anybody doesn’t have somebody to play with they can go and sit on it and somebody will go and welcome them into their game. Thank you Friendship Ambassadors for such a lovely idea.
