Every summer holiday we send a "Passport to an amazing summer holiday" home with the children so we can hear about and see their holiday adventures.
When they come back the children show everyone their photos and drawings about their holidays. We set 15 adventures that can be completed in Mangere Bridge at no cost. Our area is such a great adventure resource with the mountain, the farm and the beaches and we know that there are exciting things to do here for families. And we could see that not only did the children have fun adventures here in Mangere Bridge they recorded their holidays away too. Thanks to everyone that sent them in. They looked so interesting. Being able to retell prior experiences is a valuable part of oral literacy. The summer passports support this learning.
