  1. Hello my name is Remington and I am six years old and I go to Westpark school here in Wellington, New Zealand. We have had a very long hot summer, we hope you have one too. I really like my school and I hope I can visit your Westpark school some day.

  2. Hello Remington. I’m glad you took the time to get your Gran to write to us. It’s great to hear that there is another Westpark School at the other side of the world. I’m sure your school is as nice as ours. Does your school have a web-site so we could have a look at it?
    It is not summer for us yet, we have just started Spring and it is cold and snowy.
    Best wishes to you and your Gran in Wellington, New Zealand :-)
