"Summer Blogging Journey Week Four Day Three"

                                                                 Day 3:  "Social System"

Activity 1:  "Mixed-Member Proportional (MMP)"

In 1996, NZ adopted the MMP voting system. In September of 2017 we had a national election. Everyone in NZ, over the age of 18, was invited to vote for who they wanted to form the next government in NZ. The race was really close and in the end, three different political parties (Labour, NZ First and the Green Party), came together to form the new government. It is called a 'coalition government' because it includes different people from different political parties.

On this blog, I'm going to form a coalition government with two other people and why I chose them.

For me, I would form a coalition with two of my best friends, Latanoa and Kim. Latanoa would be a perfect addition to the coalition because he is so good at making jokes, he is a very funny person, smart and very supportive. Kim would be great because she is very smart, good listener, she's good at making decision and she is a very kind person.

Activity 2:  "Migration"

Over the past few decades, there has been a huge rise in the number of people coming to NZ to live and/or travel. I was one of those people! In fact, I moved with my family to NZ in 2010 and I am so glad that I did. It's a pretty place to call home! At the moment I live about 10 minutes from there stunning beaches and a beautiful national park.

For this activity, I'm going to write three things that tourist, could do if they came to visit my hometown. (What do I like about mu hometown?)

-My hometown Fasi mo e Afi, Nuku'alofa is a small town that is less than 15 minutes from the sea. For me, I think that if a tourist came to visit my hometown, I would probably take them to my house, so that they can taste my a Tongan meal, I would show them my church and I would love to take them to the sea to see how beautiful the water is.

Bonus Activity:  "Modern Learning Environment"

Over the past few years, a number of schools have changed the way that they teach. Instead of one teacher working in one classroom with one group of students, some schools have built huge classrooms where many teachers work together to teach a big groups of student. This is called a 'Modern Learning Environment'.

Some people prefer Modern Learning Environment while others aren't so sure. Take a look at the picture above. The one on the left is a photograph of a traditional classroom, and the picture on the right is of a Modern Learning Environment.

For this activity, I'm gonna design a classroom, and say what is special about it and why I design it that way.

The thing that is special about the classroom that I have design, is that this classroom is a place for young people to enjoy there.The reason why I design it like this it because I love colourful equipment in my classroom, I love reading and I just love the way I design it because it so beautiful and light and students will always love to come to school everyday.

Kia Ora Seniola,

You have done a great job with the holiday blogging programme this year. I have really enjoyed reading all of your blogs. I particularly enjoyed this post as I had the chance to travel to Nuku'alofa last year with my family and we had a great time. We stayed in Kanukupolu for about six days and absolutely loved it. The weather was beautiful, the food was delicious and the people were so friendly. We can't wait to go back to Tonga again very soon.

Hope that you and your family are all well and that you had a really nice summer break. I'll look forward to seeing you when I come into Tamaki College early in Term 1 to deliver the prizes and certificates for the Summer Learning Journey programme.

Bye for now,
Rachel :)
