English, Te reo Maori and New Zealand Sign language are the 3 main languages in New Zealand. Polynesians settled New Zealand in 1250-1300 and Europeans first made contact in 1642. In 1840 a Treaty was signed between the Maori and British, making New Zealand a better place. New Zealand is an island country in the south-western Pacific Ocean consisting of two main islands and lots of other smaller islands, for example, Stewart Island and the Chatham Island.

The capital city of New Zealand is Wellington. Wellington is popular because the prime minister John Key lives there, and there is a famous building there called the bee hive. Wellington is the capital city and third most populous urban area of New Zealand.

We hope you come to the Rugby World Cup and visit us at Pt England School!!!!!!
