We feel proud and privileged leading the Buddie & Challenge Monitor teams, they are very inspirational young people. It is great to be involved in lunch time play and to see so many children enjoying the activities that the Buddy & Challenge monitor teams run every day.
They work with Key Stage 2 children on the playground to ensure everyone has a happy, fun filled and enjoyable time. They also help out in classes and run games and activities indoors if it is too wet to be outside.
Each team meets to plan which games, activities or competitions they will run, then help to set this up. They encourage all children to take part in the many different games that are on offer, while ensuring everyone plays safely and fairly.
Certificates are written by the Challenge Monitors and given to anyone who has been really helpful, kind, helped others, played the games well or won competitions.
Challenge Monitors are easily recognisable on the playground as they wear their special orange uniform.
