The King’s & My Birthday

To kick off Mana Ako Club this week we had fun planning our very own 21st birthday party.  We looked at our guest list, a possible theme, menu and more!Today we are looking at King Charles birthday that was celebrated in NZ in the form of a public holiday.    We celebrate this because we are part of the commonwealth.   The Commonwealth is The Commonwealth of Nations was formed in 1949 to maintain an association between countries that had once been part of the British colonies, but which were considered ‘free and equal’. Thanks To. New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade

In NZ as part of our celebrations we have the King’s Service Medal (created as the Queen’s Service Medal in 1975 and renamed in 2024).   It is a medal awarded by the government of New Zealand to recognise and reward volunteer service to the community and also public service in elected or appointed public office.  Thanks to the NZ Royal Honours site
