Skyping with the New Town Kapai Kiwis

It's the end of summer break but B4 students are still on holiday so Mrs McKenzie got up early to skype by herself with a class in North Carolina, USA.
It was 7am Friday in New Zealand and 1pm Thursday in North Carolina.

The New Town Kapai Kiwis have a teacher who comes from New Zealand! 
Miss Lologa is at the school for a year. 
She loves teaching her students about New Zealand and was keen for the children to speak to some New Zealanders.
A highlight was the song the children sang 
at the end of the call.
Thank you for the chat Superstars.

Some items of interest:

What similarities and differences did you notice?
Whose school day is longer?
Would you rather your school day started and ended early, or start and end a little later?

  1. Kia Ora Mrs McKenzie,

    We had a great time skyping you the other day. The class enjoyed learning more about other places in New Zealand. It would have been the first time they would've skyped a teacher from New Zealand.

    We look forward to working with you and your class this year!

    Have a great start to the school year.

    From your friends,
    The New Town Kapai Kiwis!
