Next Foundation - Summer Learning Journey

Today we had a special assembly. In this very special assembly there were people from the Next Foundation and also Rachel and hazel for the Summer Learning Journey. Rachel from the Summer Learning Journey program told us how wonderful and successful the Summer Learning Journey was and how it helped the students with their reading and writing. Then Bill Kermode from the NEXT Foundation talked to us about how the NEXT Foundation and how it became a big company in New Zealand and how they pay it forward to people. The movie about the SLJ was then published for the whole school to watch. Daniel was the main person in this clip, he is in my class. It was fun having the film crew come into our classroom. After the assembly we went out onto the field and had a delicious lunch, thanks to the NEXT Foundation!.
