What’s On The Christmas Wishlists This Year?

Promotion for NZ Post

Along with his Elves and trusty reindeer, Santa is ready and waiting to receive wish lists from Kiwi kids of all ages.

To help Kiwi kids get those important wishlists on their way, NZ Post’s special ‘Write to Santa’ website is back for another year to add an extra sprinkle of magic to the festive season by helping kids create a letter for Alex the Postie to deliver to Santa at the North Pole.

How to write to Santa

Children can visit nzpost.co.nz/writetosanta and write their own special letter to Santa. They might need your help to make sure their name and address is correct then press send! Alex the Postie, who does the postal run to the North Pole every year, will be sure to deliver it to Santa!

If Santa receives a message by 22nd of November, he will deliver a personalised response to your letterbox. If he receives a message between 23rd of November and 22nd of December, he’ll email it instead.

Santa hasn’t forgotten the teachers

If you’re a teacher of a primary school or early childhood education centre, you can arrange non-personalised postcards to be sent to all of the children in the classroom.

Visit www.nzpost.co.nz/teacherswritetosanta to fill out Santa’s form by 15th of November. Santa will then send the postcards for all the kids in the class by approximately 8th of December. Teachers are welcome to email teacherswritetosanta@nzpost.co.nz if they have any questions.

When the children are finished writing letters, there’s also loads of fun to be had exploring Santa’s Ho Ho Homepage. They can play games, check out the latest snapshots from the arctic circle, listen to some merry tunes on North Pole FM and so much more.

She also is very into the environment, and is an eco warrior at school and makes sure that everything is recyclable or compostable at home…. No plastic bags allowed in our house!

Dakiah’s building a garden with her Dad and they have planted lots of vege’s and her potatoes and mint are growing so big, she is super proud as they have built an irrigation system together that is making everything grow.
