Winter Learning Journey

For the first activity of the winter learning journey, I had to go to the Tourism New Zealand site and choose three facts about the people of New Zealand. Here are my three facts:
  1. Almost 7/10 (69%) of New Zealanders are of European descent  
  2. Rugby is New Zealand’s national sport (Being the most popular sport in NZ and having a great rugby team)
  3. There are 4 main cities in New Zealand (Auckland, Wellington, Hamilton and Christchurch) with 1/3 of the population living in Auckland.


  1. Hello Daniel, Wow, I didn't know that 69% of people living in New Zealand are of a European descent. Keep up the awesome work during the holidays.

  2. Good morning Daniel!

    It's great to see that you have already been such an active blogger. It's only Day #2 of the programme and you have already posted 11 activities. You are a star!

    I hope that you've enjoyed learning more about New Zealand as you've made your way through the activities. I certainly learned quite a bit while I was creating the various activity prompts. One of the surprising facts that I learned was that 69% of New Zealanders are of European descent. I see that AJ is also surprised - who knew?! It's great that you're able to share these facts with us.

    Speaking of facts, I see that your second fact relates to rugby. I was actually just watching a rugby game last night between the All Blacks and the Lions team from the United Kingdom. Did you get a chance to watch the game? It was really entertaining! The two teams ended up tying the game and the whole series.

    I hope that you are able to continue your awesome blogging and your commenting this holiday. You are a leader in this programme and you set such a great example for others to follow. Keep it up!

    All the best,

    Rachel :)
