JTC Highschool Student Kinoko Blog

<< Weekend | main | Apologies >>
    It's finally the school holidays! Well, for us at least. Most of the other students are still at school.

    Now that we have lots of free time on our hands, we can catch up on all our homework! Yay! Or not.

    We do have school exams coming up, which is a practice for all the exams we'll have to do at the end of the year for NCEA. So maybe we should be studying...
    But there are lots of better things to be doing during the break Lots of people go on trips around New Zealand to places like:

    Kaiteriteri - there are lots of lovely beaches and places to camp 

    Tekapo - you can go on walks through the mountain where there are great views of the stars (there's even an observatory there!) and hot pools in the forest

    Rotorua- this location is famous for its natural mud pools and geysers (fountains of water coming up from under the ground). There are hot mud spas, which don't sound that nice but are really good for you, and luge and Zorb rides.

    Kaikoura- Kaikoura is famous for its whale-watching. It's a small rural community  but has lots of activities like walks and sight-seeing

    Auckland- lots of shopping and sights like the Sky Tower, One-Tree hill, Harbour Bridge, and Eden Park.

    Lots of people we know (including me, yay!) are skiing over the break. There are quite a few skifields in New Zealand like Cardrona, Treble Cone, The Remarkables, Mount Hutt, Porter Heights, and Broken River in the South islands, and heaps more in the North Island.

    Anyway, Kinoko  and I  are not really doing anything at the moment, but take this opportunity to see a bit more of New Zealand, catch up on your studies, or just relax a bit before going back to school.
