I don’t really like this song, but I think a few people do. One of the videos on YouTube has more than 40 million hits.
Anyway, I think this could be a good song to listen to or sing along to, to practice opposites.
These are the opposites she sings about:
hot / cold yes / no in / out up / down wrong / right black / white fight, break up / kiss, make up
Kia ora in Stick News today education officials in Pennsylvania accidentally sold a classroom on ebay for $1.
According to news reports a school district in the United States was attempting to sell seven used portable classrooms. They’d bought the classrooms three years ago for about $46,000. They decided to sell them on eBay and were expecting to get between 5 and 10 thousand dollars per classroom. But they made a mistake which allowed someone to buy one classroom for only a dollar. A spokesperson said they tried to back out of the sale, but they couldn’t. She was asked if the remaining classrooms would be sold on eBay, and she replied: "No I don't think we will go that route again."
And that was Stick News for Friday the 6th of March. Kia ora.
The other day knf went on a tour with Powder Company. They hiked up a mountain called Nito Nupuri. Then they rode down.

What do you call them?
Natalie Did you use portable classrooms in New Zealand? ニュージーランドでポータブル教室を利用する？
Sarah Yeah, we do. We had one at my primary school. And one at my high school too actually, come to think of it. But we didn’t call them portable classrooms though. うん、使う。 小学校にあった。 高校にもあった。 思い出すな?。 でもポータブル教室とは呼ばなかったけどね。
Natalie What do you call them? どう呼んだの？
Sarah Prefabs. Yeah, I remember our prefab arriving on a barge. It was very exciting. Prefabs。 ポータブル教室が船で運ばれてきたときは、すごく興奮した。
