The History Of Labour Day

Hello Readers Today Have you ever wondered why I did this...I have done this on behalf of a little known person named Samuel Parnell.Samuel Parnell is the person that reckoned that people is New Zealand should have 8 hour days,And that established a day which is now known as Labour Day.I hope you enjoy reading my writing and I hope that you please leave a comment.
What Labour Day actually celebrates.

Title
History Of Labour Day
Introduction
Labour day… We usually don't celebrate labour day as much.But it is important.people sometimes  wonder what is important labour day is about . However ur in luck Today because I will tell you what labour day is about… Firstly Labour day is the exact day that new zealanders all over new zealand had fought for a 8 hour day.We celebrate Labour day every year to celebrate the workers rights...

  • The hours we work for
  • The Payment
  • And our Unions...


Information
1st idea
Labour day...Labour day is a extremely special day for new zealanders all over new zealand because… If u don't know this But Ever since 1847.New Zealand had at least a minimum of 10 hour days and a maximum of 12 hour day. Until one day a little known man named samuel parnell had decided to change that.He reckoned that new zealanders should only work 8 hours each day and he succeed in 1840 with a day which is now known as Labour day.







Information
2nd idea
We are so lucky that us,our parents,and the rest of our families are only having to work 8 hours a day.I think that samuel parnell didn’t want to have 10 or 12 hour days because maybe people are working long hours and are probably not getting enough money to support their families and I don't blame samuel parnell just because he wanted to help new zealanders that were struggling and he changed that.



Information
3rd idea
Samuel Parnell is an extraordinary man.It must of been hard for
Him to do what he did.It seems that he was thinking about more than himself but however he did it mainly for himself and the people.Thanks to samuel parnell for changing the whole of NEW ZEALAND.



Conclusion
Lastly as I say this again… we give thanks to Samuel Parnell just because of what he did for new zealand and we should honor him in a way that he was a hero to the whole of new zealand.Because of the greatness that he showed us and what Samuel parnell dfid for us and we should respect this person gradually.Thank You Samuel Parnell.

Flounder Catching


 Hello Readers today Point England School was filled with joy as we walked through a street called riverside avenue and then another street called riki street to see our flounder team try to catch some flounder.

Everywhere around new zealand,our flounder is in danger of extinction and point england school has submitted a partnership with another school called Kauri Flats School and together point England school and kauri flats have committed to farming baby flounder to help them grow and ensure their survival.


As we reached the beach,our entire school sang a waiata ( song ) to support our flounder team and after that we did a karakia ( prayer ) to pray that our flounder team would catch some flounder to farm and look after so the flounder cam grow and so the flounder population can increase.


After that,it was time to leave so we took one last look at our flounder team then left back to school.In my opinion i think that we must protect our flounder to becoming extinct.
