Tracking the Post! Following a letter on its journey from Ireland to New Zealand.


We have sent some St.Patrick’s Day greetings

to our friends in Room One, Aurora School, New Zealand.

In fact the envelope was so large it didn’t fit in the post box above!

So we brought it to the post office.

Now we can track the progress of our package.

We posted this on March 6th.

We can see that it has left Heathrow Airport in London, UK

shortly after midnight on March 7th

and is on its way to New Zealand.



Update: It is the morning of Monday 10th March here. We checked  at 8.30 a.m. and saw that 

the package had already arrived in New Zealand at 2.16 p.m.

on the afternoon of Monday, March 10.


This shows that New Zealand is ahead of Ireland.

We are amazed at how quick it travelled and are very happy

that it will arrive on time for St.Patrick’s Day on 17th March.

Update, 11th March 2014.

We see from the messages we received from Aurora School

that the envelope arrived on the 12th of March in New Zealand!

  5. Hi Isabelle, Imagine it is still Tuesday 11th here as I reply to your message sent on Wednesday 12th. We live in an interesting world where some countries are ahead of us timewise and others are behind. On New Years Eve, we see New Year celebrations and fireworks on the TV, from New Zealand, Australia and Hong Kong many hours before it gets dark and we celebrate in Ireland. We are glad you like the leprachaun.
    With every good wish,
