Hey,this is JT, I said on the blog vidio, "do you like wearing uniforms?" In are school we dont have them, but I ask a few people and they wouldn't like to wear them either, because we're so use to our normal clothes.

School memories

One of my memories is the class trip to the aquarium. I was in Mr. teehans group. I had been there a million times though. So I could recommend were to go first. We got to see sharks and hippos. It was great and I got a shark tooth at the gift shop. When we were at pet a shark we fond mat he got lost. His teacher got really mad. So that was one of my school memories

hi um... i didnt catch many of those questions but yes we do have a national anthem and it goes like this: well these are the words:
God Defend New Zealand / Aotearoa
Māori Version

E Ihowā Atua,
O ngā iwi mātou rā
Āta whakarangona;
Me aroha noa
Kia hua ko te pai;
Kia tau tō atawhai;
Manaakitia mai
Aotearoa

English Version:
God of Nations at Thy feet,
In the bonds of love we meet,
Hear our voices, we entreat,
God defend our free land.
Guard Pacific's triple star
From the shafts of strife and war,
Make her praises heard afar,
God defend New Zealand.

thats not the whole song but it's what we sing at schools and stuff.=] if you want to here it then you can go to this site AND see the rest of it=]

Uniforms aren't bad, at my old school we didn't have uniforms, and when I started this school I hated them! But I don't mind them now....
NZ's national sports are Rugby, Netball, Football (different to your football) and hockey.
My favourite sport is Netball!
Here are some sites about them:

No, Kiwis aren't very common. Sorry, I can't answer all those other questions about the Kiwi!

Okay well I couldn't hear them all so soz (sorry).
Do you like uniform? NO! I like expressing myself through lots of clothes.
Kiwi pic it will be in the corner of this comment.
Field trips? Totally! We love going on day trips and camps.
I don't know if this was a question but do we have lots of animals? Yeah! Lots.
What pets? Dogs, cats, birds, fish, probably anything you have.
I am also not sure of this but the colours of our flag are red, white and blue.
Is the kiwi common? No, not really. Especially in the north island where we are.
National anthem? We could sing it to you. (If Mr. Woody doesn't mind videoing us again).
Do we have trips? Yeah.
Theme sport? Netball, Rugby or Sailing.
Rugby is like our version of your football.
Netball is a game like basketball but you can't run with the ball and it's girls playing.
Last day? I think I'll agree with ashymashy.
My favourite sport is definitely netball.

I HATE netball. No offence, but Basketball and (field)Hockey are better.
I like how you speak... different! You always seem to put a lot of emphisas on the 'a's.
And, in response to JT, ('vidio' is spelt 'video'!) I think the school uniform makes our school special and I quite like it!
Do we have field days... well, the Waikato (a region in NZ which Hamilton is in), we had the field days, but that is all about farming and stuff in a big paddock near the Hamilton airport, with people, trucks, diggers, cows, sheep...
The national bird Kiwi, well, our native, indigeouness people (the Maori people) thought the noise the Kiwi made was "kiwi, kiwi!" Like a morepork, or Ruru... Us europeans call it the morepork, because it calls "morepork! Morepork!"
For Missy, I think (???) , we have many unusual birdies, like the moa, which went extinct becouse the maori's ate them all! Leave some for me!
Um... JJ asked what pets we have... whatever you have! I have a gorgeous puss, we have three cute rats (two sadly died this year), dogs, rabbits, axolotls, fish, frogs, toads, hamsters...
Broadway girl asked something about cars... well, our cars are toyota's hondas, also fords and holdens, but mostly Japanese models.
Our climate is about 20's (celcious!) and over in summer, and flippin' cold in the winter! But we don't have snow, NEVER EVER, but we do have frost and the ocassional frost-bitey fingers when I bike to school with no gloves! It is winter now... freeeeeeeeeeeeezing!
The boy in white (sorry, can't remember everything! (I have a very short memory span - worse than a goldfish!)) and black(ish) hair asked something about toast... I think. Can he please write it on the comments?
You guys are so cool... it is a shame you have nearly finished school!
jg has a funny story, but the grammar didn't make sense until I read it many times over!!!
