Snow in Christchurch

It is snowing here in Christchurch! We had planned to make our playground movie for our quadbuddies so here is our first attempt!

We'll be in touch when it is warm enough to be outside for more than 10 seconds with a more informative playground video!

We hope our buddies at Tawa Intermediate are keeping warm and safe. We also wonder if Mt Pleasant School is open.

  4. 8C - Thanks so much for your questions well will be publishing our Quiz Revoultion about Christchurch and your school a little later, probably this afternoon - its ready to go pretty much but we have to road test it, because when we published the Tawa Intermediate School Quiz we had a couple of mistakes that the students picked out. We also showed the Snow video to our class this morning - hope that its a bit warmer today.

  5. Looks like you guys had a lot of fun in the snow. Mount Pleasant was open while it was snowing. It was only snowing a little bit through the day.

  6. That looked like fun! I remember the time when it snowed in Tawa it was heaps of fun but very cold. School wasn't on for a two days. How long did it snow over there?
