                                   Life cycle

As New Zealand eels have never been seen spawning, this part of their lifecycle is based on what scientists think happens. In autumn, adult eels leave fresh water and enter tropical seas somewhere in the South Pacific, where in deep water females release eggs.

Closing statement

Long fin eels can live up to 25 to 80 years old until they breed then die but the short fin eels live up to 15 to 18 years and people should not eat long fin eels because they are toxic inside of them.There are a big loss of long fin eels because it is from the big loss of wetlands.

This is Ruapekapeka our school maunga we recently had a noho marae and visited Ruapekapeka

Do we need rubbish bins at school Yes or No?

“We should have our rubbish bins back at school”  

I Strongly believe that the Students of Kawakawa Primary School should have our Rubbish bins back so we don’t “STINK” up our bags.

First when we come back home our parents will get grumpy and Angry.

Second flies could possible hang around your bag and you will take the blame.

Thirdly yogurt, chips and other stuff can mess up your bag  and it will stink your bag and the area.
