1990s Immigration

Last week Room 5 looked at immigration in New Zealand in the 1990s. Room 5 imagined what it was like to move from a different country to New Zealand. They wrote postcards to their families and friends about their first impressions of New Zealand and described any difficulties they may have had with moving to a different country. Below is a sample of a few of the students postcards. The rest can be viewed on their individual blogs. 

Hawker, Jet, Takeoff, Aircraft ...Dear Dad and Mum,
I don’t  speak English it's green and I like it and I want to go to Australia. And I saw some big buildings in April. We are going to SKY tower and my dad and my mum  and my brother are coming to New Zealand because there is lots of noise in India and it is silent in New Zealand . Some people are chinese and some people are Indian and some people are New Zealanders.
