Australian schools now have a new way to help stamp out bullying. A Buddy Bench is a permanent place in the school with a very special purpose. Children are encouraged to sit on the bench when they are feeling left out or bullied. If a classmate sees a student sitting on the bench they are urged to invite them to play, walk or talk with them.

Replas now produces Buddy Benches made from durable recycled plastic that not only help the environment, but may also help change the culture at your school. To find out how a Buddy Bench can eliminate loneliness and foster freindship call 1800 REPLAS for more information.
