Archives New Zealand

Today I was lucky enough to go on a tour of Archives NZ. I actually stood in front of the original Treaty of Waitangi, all nine sheets!

There are a wealth of resources that could be used in the classroom, and the best thing is that they are rights free as they are public domain. Here are a few links where you can access some of the items:

Thoughtful and the Mighty Heart

I had the best day today. I went to the Attic to film Thoughtful and the Mighty Heart for their Rock Quest video. The venue was amazing.

You can see the videos on my youtube channel >>

I stayed at the Mercure Hotel in Auckland, however I could see the Mercure Hotel through my bedroom window. Very confusing.

A photo taken by a friend. I have just spent four days in Auckland and it was nice to see the sun again. I feel totally revived.
