Best Buddies Canada is a non-profit organization dedicated to enhancing our communities through one-to-one friendships between people with intellectual disabilities and their peers.
The Best Buddies Club was started in 2007 at St. Mary's High School. The Best Buddies Club meets every other Thursday during both lunches. If students have first lunch, they are encouraged to sit in the forum during their lunch and eat with their buddy. They engage in meaningful conversations and sometimes participate in events happening in the forum. If students have second lunch, they meet their buddy in room 120 to play games, cards, do crafts, play wii sports or wii dance, etc.
This club is the FUN BRIGADE!! We encourage a social environment and interaction as the main focus. We love to celebrate holidays, birthdays and other occasions.
If you would like to sign up for Best Buddies or would like more information, please see Ms. Shannon Hinnegan in Room 203 for more information.
