Buddy Bench

The Buddy Bench is a sturdy, boardwalk-style bench with a reversible, wooden back and a simple purpose.

When a child doesn't have someone to play with, the child can sit on the Buddy Bench and send a message to other children to invite the child to play with them.

Our Buddy Bench was built by hand and delivered in the fall.


After it arrived, our students painted the Buddy Bench.IMG_6371.JPG

The idea for the Buddy Bench came from students. 


They raised money for it.   IMG_6378.JPG

Father David blessed our bench.


The Buddy Bench sits on top of the SJB hill so that kids can see it when they play.
