4# Wellington: Visitng schools - and sightseeing

The fourth school I visited was St Marks Church School, in Wellington.

The sun was shining as we drove around the waterside towards the school.    I met Tracy Nel the school librarian in the information centre, where we were joined by P1-3 classes and their teachers.

I read from What Colour is Love? and Hamish McHaggis.  The children helped me create some great characters and had fun learning some Scots words, too.

Read their report on my visit in their Re-marks newsletter (term 1 week 2-2011)

 Before leaving Wellington we spent a bit of time sightseeing......

and finally we made our way to the wonderful Te Papa museum . we could have there stayed twice as long, there was so much to see,  and some fabulous interactive exhibits.

But sadly we had a fairly strict itinerary to keep to, so we were soon leaving Wellington on our way north to the lovely Hawkes Bay area and the Art Deco city of Napier.
