This week we have been writing about the possible change of the New Zealand flag. The amazing children in the Pavilion have chosen whether they would change the flag or keep the old one.
Here is AJ F piece of writing that looks at both sides.
I think that we should change the flag so we don’t have the union jack any more. Lots of people are saying that we are Australian. We like the new flag so people don‘t say that that we are Australia. New Zealand is a proud independent country.
We are no longer a British colony. So we shouldn’t have another country’s flag on our flag. The new flag is the best.
We should not change the flag because it was a part of our Nation. The Blue comes from the British Union Jack and has come to represent the blue sea and sky. The southern cross emphasises our location in the south pacific ocean.
