On Wednesday and Thursday this week, Buddy Bear flew in to Law Primary school in North Berwick to visit all the kids from p1-p3, and they all got to bring their favourite teddy and some of them even dressed them up as superheroes. Buddy Bear had activities for all the kids to do, to help them learn about bullying but more importantly how to love yourself and others and how to be a good friend. We left backpacks for each class which contains work activities, a ‘Buddy Bear’ soft toy and a colouring-in story book, and games, to continue on the positive journey. We would like to thank everyone at Law Primary for participating in what was an amazing event for Buddy Bear, and if you would like to find out more, please go over to the website. www.buddybearfriends.com
