Students compose song about buddy bench
Westmount Community School students perform original song
Elementary students in Saskatoon have composed a song called Buddy Bench about a popular playground spot.
"Buddy bench: It's here to make everyone happy," reads the first line of the chorus.
The song was composed by teacher Gareth Bond alongside Grade 3 and 4 students at Westmount Community School and Howard Coad School.
"If you don't have a friend and don't know what to do, just sit on this bench and you'll find a new friend or two," the song goes.
Westmount Community School now has two buddy benches installed on the playground.
The Westmount students performed the song on Monday during a surprise Christmas carol stop at CBC Saskatoon.
