Every Wednesday the school buddies from Mangere Bridge School arrive to spend time with a kindergarten child that will go to that school.
There is always great excitement as the car pulls up - "the buddies are here, the buddies are here" the children call when they see them.
They have a great time playing on the climbing equipment, using the tools and using the art space to create.
The school buddy programme has been in action now since 2009, we have had a lot of buddies and they all take their role very seriously. It's great to see the buddies every week.
