This week several of our students started writing letters about their thoughts on the flag debate, Caitlin's letter was one that just has to be shared. We are sending it to our local MP on Monday.

Mrs. Paula Bennett MP,
I want my amazing country to keep it's flag because we have been loyal to it since 1902.
The trend is for people to think it would be a great thing to change our flag because it is old and a change would be good for us.
My personal opinion on this matter is that change would be okay but I would hate our flag to change because people in the war died for our flag, you just don't need to fix what isn't broken so just leave it alone!!!
Changing our flag is just a waste of our time and money. You are right to let people vote but none of this would have happened if the flag could be left in peace.
Just because I can't vote doesn't mean that I don't care!!! I really hope that you will still consider my input because I care about this as much as anyone else even though I'm only 10 years old.
