Year 2 had a wonderful time last week at the beautiful Eastern Mangroves Hotel. The classes each went on different days and explored ‘behind the scenes’ of the hotel.
Once we had checked in and got our room key, we arrived at our room to find it was a mess and we had to clean it! The children really enjoyed changing the sheets and pillowcases and then making ‘towel animals’. The next stop was the kitchens to find out all about the different types of bread and pastries that are made every day and we were lucky enough to find some sweets that needed eating. Next stop was the restaurant where we learnt to lay the table and had a competition to see which group laid it the best. Finally we arrived at the laundry room. We’d never seen such huge washing machines and I think all the adults would have loved to have one of the huge sheet ironing and folding machines! Last, and of course most importantly, before we went home we go to enjoy our yummy packed lunches!
The children had a wonderful time. The staff at the Eastern Mangroves Hotel were so accommodating and friendly and gave us experiences we will always remember. We are very grateful for their generosity.
