Summer Learning Journey and NEXT Foundation

The NEXT foundation came to visit Panmure Bridge School. Rachel from the Summer Learning Journey came to talk about the 2017/2018 SLJ. The CEO of The NEXT Foundation also talked about how the Summer Learning Journey is really helpful and can help us improve on our reading and writing. Daniel was the star of the movie that the Next Foundation had created about the Summer Learning Journey. I found the movie really awesome and I saw lot's of my classmates in it. After the assembly the NEXT foundation was kind enough to give us a yummy lunch.


  1. Kia Ora Jay-don,

    How are you? I hope that your holiday is going well so far. We have been having a great time blogging with students from across New Zealand as part of the Summer Learning Journey blogging programme.

    We hope that you're able to re-join us this year on the journey. There are 60 different activities to choose from this summer - all related to the history, people and amazing culture here in New Zealand. To participate, hop onto the Summer Learning Journey website ( and go to the 'Weekly Activities' tab, choose an activity and post your answer here on your blog site.

    We'll check back in again very soon to see if you've had time to post a blog for the SLJ.

    Hope to blog with you soon :)
