A Penguin Travelled From NZ To Australia!

A fiorland penguin was found tired and struggling to walk amongst the rocks on Kennett River in west Melbourne on July 10. It was taken to the zoo to get some test results by marine experts. It'll be fed and taken care of until it is able to go back home to NZ.

The penguin travelled 2,500km in total from NZ to Australia! It's surprising because penguins can't fly but their actually one of the fastest swimmers on the planet!

NZ History Taught In Schools

In New Zealand Jacinda Ardern has made the choice for all New Zealand schools to be taught about the history of our country by 2020. Some schools have the choice which parts they want to be taught. There will be changes to many schools.

 I think its a good idea that Jacinda Ardern has chosen to do this because not only will it help New Zealand kids right now it'll also help them in the future. Jacinda had thought of the idea while unveiling a plaque commemorating the New Zealand Wars.

Measles In Auckland!

In Auckland, New Zealand there have been around 778 people diagnosed with the mealse disease. The age groups that have been affected badly are children younger than 5 years old and those aged between 15 and 29. Auckland Regional Public Health Service said that New Zealand had lost immunity against measles.

Since I've been seeing a lot of people having measles it has made me a bit scared.

As some people know, yesterday was netball interschools which basically means "competing against other schools". I was very excited and tried to get as much sleep as possible which was kind of hard because I couldn't go to sleep. The netball team for the Y7 and Y8's were - Leanah, Mary Ruth, Nataaliyah, Agueer, Madisyn, Kotipi, Konzay, Leaaepeni, Tristan and I.

I was happy to represent my school in netball even though we came 13th out of 20. I thought my team could've done better but I think it's because we didn't practise as much as other schools. 

The Schools We Played Were:
Glen Innes Red
St Pius
Sylvia Park Green
Pt England Black
Glen Brae 
And Panmure Bridge School

I was proud of my team, hopefully we could play together sometime in the future!!

A Rail From Hamilton To Auckland?

In Hamilton funding has given that city a new rail service from Hamilton to Auckland. This new service is going to take place in Hamilton next year. It will cost around $92 million from funding to pay for the railing.

The transport minister Phil Twyford is saying that more and more people are travelling between these two cities so whats better than to make a rail. I think it's a great idea to make this train rail!

Christchurch Is The Friendliest City In NZ?

In New Zealand some travellers come around to look at our fine cities but what really caught their eye was Christchurch. They think Christchurch is the most friendliest because the people who live in Christchurch have a positive and friendly attitude.

When it comes to the worlds friendliest city Vancouver already took the title. I've been to Christchurch and I agree that people their have a friendly attitude.
