  1. Kia ora Tristan,

    Well done on completing the logging activity. I think you make two very valid points, however, logging is used to build houses, for paper and generate heat/power. What would happen if we stopped logging altogether?

    Have you heard of the One Billion Trees Programme? The NZ Government has set a goal to plant 1 Billion trees by 2028 to help protect the environment and mitigate climate change. I think this is a great step in the right direction. What do you think?

    Looking forward to seeing more blog posts from you soon Tristan!
    Nga mihi, Georgia

  2. WOW! Tristan! What an awesome and creative presentation of yours. It got me thinking just by reading it. I agree, we should stop logging. But i've heard that when they cut down the fresh new trees, they plant and grow other ones. So its very much confusing for me. What can you do to help stop logging?

    Nga mihi,

  3. Kia Ora Tristan,

    You can complete as many of the activities as you like, and in any order. Each activity is worth points, and remember, you can also earn points 2 points for each quality comment that you post on the blogs of other Summer Learning Journey participants. It’s that easy!

  4. Kia ora Tristan!

    Congratulations on participating in the Summer Learning Journey! You have done such a great job on all your blog posts, you really have put in SO much effort!

    Your two posts ‘Pancakes & Maple Syrup and ‘Salt & Pepper’! I loved the photos you attached because they had yummy toppings like whipped cream and sprinkles. These are my favourite toppings too! You were really passionate about this activity!

    I hope this year brings you so much happiness! We are really looking forward to having you back next summer, I am so sure the year will go by quickly again.

    See you then!
