Day 1: Activity 1 - Winter Learning Journey (100% Pure New Zealand)

Winter Learning Journey


Activity 1:  Go to the Tourism New Zealand website and click on the ‘Facts - New Zealand People’ tab. Read about the people of New Zealand and then choose three interesting facts to post on your blog. The facts must be written in your own words. Do not simply copy and paste the facts from the website☺.

Three Facts about the New Zealand People -
1. There are 4.4 million New Zealanders, 69% are Europeans, 14.6% are Maori, 9.2% are Asians and 6.9% are not Maori Pacific Islanders.
2. European pioneers were brave and independent before the farms and settlements were founded, they had clear the land. Sometimes they have to do dangerous things.
3. Rugby is the most common sport in New Zealand, with the history of the almighty All Blacks, that won the rugby world cup.
Extra -
4. Before Sir Ernest Rutherford in the early twentieth century, kiwis discovered and invented things. The inventions have been created in a backyard. The frozen meat, the Hamilton Jet boat and the Bungy jump are the most famous Kiwi inventions.


  1. Kia ora Lusia and welcome to the Winter Learning Journey programme for 2017. I am so happy that you have joined us again this year! Welcome back!
