MY SOUL FRIENDHaving a soul friend is like having a younger sister. At. St. Pius X School we have Soul Friend Day on the feast of St. Patricks. We have a whole school mass and the priest blessed our soul friend promise.
My soul friend's name is Langiola. She is a Tongan girl with 3 siblings at our school. She is about 5 years old. My soul friend is very quiet, shy and loveable.
We have a soul friend because we need to support the younger students. They can come to us when they need us at times. We help them to read and we also want to be good role models to them. We want to help them to grow up and be successful in their learning.
With my soul friend I do “Buddy Reading” with her . She is a very talented at reading. Whenever I see her she always has to come up and squeeze me nd her exact words are, “HI SAMMY!” I always smile at her. We also made a promise to them that we will share everything with them. We also had shared lunch. I bought a packet of biscuits.I look forward to looking after Langiola and support her during the year. We might do another shared morning tea but will be ten times better than today.
