Each year New Zealand law provides an anniversary day for each province. Taranaki Anniversary day is the province we live in and our Anniversary day is today. No schools are open on this day so we are all having a well deserved long weekend. Here is a bit about our Taranaki Province.
The Taranaki Province has an area of some 2,000,000 acres (8,100 km2).
We have some great surfing beaches.
We have a ski field during Winter.
We have beautiful coastal walkways.

Does your school live in an area that has its own Holiday?
If so, what is the day called and why do you have a day away from school?
