Buddy Up! Online: Celebrating Diversity

Buddy Up! Online is a digital adaptation of CRIS’s 4-week school contact programme ‘Celebrating Diversity.’ The 20-minute videos are designed to help children explore the core themes of ‘Identity,’ ‘Feelings,’ ‘Empathy’, and ‘Diversity.’ Using a mixture of songs, stories, and even puppets, Buddy Up! Online continues to bring fun, interactive and energetic opportunities for school partnerships to work together from their own classrooms.

We are excited to share a chapter of the programme outside of our partner schools for the first time ever. ‘Buddy Up!’ Online will be available in communities as well as in classrooms across Northern Ireland.
