Day 3: Social Systems

Activity 1: Mixed-Member Proportional (MMP)

In 1996, New Zealand adopted the MMP voting system. In September of 2017 we had a national election. Everyone in New Zealand, over the age of 18, was invited to vote for who they wanted to form the next government in New Zealand. The race was really close and in the end, three different political parties (Labour, New Zealand First and the Green Party), came together to form the new government. It is called a ‘coalition government’ because it includes different people from different political parties.

Imagine that you had to form a coalition government with two other people.  Wh1o would you choose to partner with?

I would form a coalition with my son, Aronui, and with my friend, Amber. Aronui would be a great addition to the coalition because he is funny and kind. He would make us laugh and take care of us. Amber would be great because she is really smart and thoughtful. She is also good at making decisions. I think that we would form a great team. What about you? Who would you choose? Why?

I would form a coalition with my best friend hazel and my best friend laolao. Laolao would be a great addition to the coalition because she is really funny shes the funniest out of all my friends and shes very respectfull and helpful. hazel would be a great addition to the coalition because she is respectfull, kind and responsible .

  1. Kia Ora Hilary,

    I really enjoyed reading this post because I immediately got a sense of how special Hazel and Laolao are to you. It sounds like you are very lucky to have friends who are so respectful, helpful, and kind!

    I am confident that the three of you would make a great team. I hope that you get the chance to team up this year at school to produce some great work. Are you three of you in the same class this year? I am still waiting to hear who Aronui's teacher is going to be at his school. Apparently, they don't tell you who the teachers are going to be until the very first day of school. It's really hard to wait!

    I hope that you are getting excited for school to start again. I know that I'm really excited to see you when I come into Pt England early in Term 1 to hand out the prizes and certificates.

    Until then, take care and enjoy your final few days of summer!

    Rachel :)
