We are a class of 29 Year 7 & 8 students at Taradale Intermediate School, Taradale, Hawke's Bay, New Zealand. Taradale is a small town with a population of approximately 18,000. We are a 10 minute drive from Napier as well as a 10 minute drive to the beach.
While talking about what makes us us, we realised that, as kiwis, we have our own lingo. Brooke did some research to create an A to Z of kiwi slang and selected what she felt are the most popular and relevant colloquialisms.
For much of the alphabet, there were several words or phrases that could've been chosen. What other 'kiwi language' can you think of?

Okay, Room 24, this page is up to you.
What would you like to share about us and where we come from?
Spend some time considering what makes us us and what's unique about where we come from. Chat to each other, your families and friends and we'll go from there.
What images will we use? Are there any web tools that can help us do this creatively?
