SLJ The Early Years:)

Day 1: The Early Years (Late 1800s – 1919)

Activity 1: St Joseph’s Cathedral

At the turn of the century, there was agreat deal of construction happening in New Zealand.
Many of the new British settlers wanted to build homes and community meeting places, such as
churches. One of the largest buildings to be constructed during this period was St Joseph’s Cathedral
in Dunedin. St Joseph’s Cathedral is just one of hundreds of beautiful cathedrals around the world.

Use your search engine to find a picture of another famous cathedral. Post a picture of the cathedral
on your blog. Underneath the picture tell us: the name of the cathedral, where the cathedral is
located, when it was built, and how long it took to build.

This famous cathedral is called the Florence Cathedral & was built on the 9th of September
in 1296. The open space of the famous Florence Cathedral was 42 metres long. This was
finally completed in the 1436 this had also included the dome as well. The Florence Cathedral
is located in Piazza del dumo which also includes the Giotto’s Campanile and Baptistery.
This Florence Cathedral is famous for it’s name & it’s size. I would love to visit the Florence
Cathedral one day as it looks just like a museum but a lot bigger.

Activity 2: The Right to Vote

At the turn of the century, New Zealand elected its first ever government. Richard John Seddon served as the leader of the Liberal Party from 1893-1906. Prior to 1893, only men were legally allowed to vote. This all changed in the late 1800s when a woman named Kate Sheppard lead a suffragist movement in New Zealand calling for a change in law. Her hard work finally paid off when the Electoral Act was passed into law on 19 September 1893, giving women the right to vote. New Zealand was the first country to give all women the right to vote. There were still countries in the world (e.g. Saudi Arabia) who, until recently, did not allow women to vote.

On your blog tell us what you think about the fact that women were not allowed to vote in
Saudi Arabia until 2015. Is it fair? Why or why not?

Well I think that it is not fair having women to not vote for another country because there
votes matter & besides there are more women than men over in Saudi Arabia which means
that there will be less votes counted. I think that women should definitely have the right
to have their own opinion, vote & like I said before women’s votes does actually matter
just like their own opinions. Everyone’s opinion matters as well as there votes so I think the
government over in Saudi Arabia should not let that happen & should think about other
people & not just therself, because everyone matters.
