Welcome to my Rugby World Cup Task Presentation
Hello, my name is Rhys the Stick Figure. Today I will tell you about my Rugby World Cup Authentic Task.
Before I was told that Pasadena would be using the RWC as a Task subject, on the Internet I had come across some people saying that New Zealand was to lose money by hosting the World Cup.
Now, I began to think about why we had gone ahead with hosting the tournament, when some were claiming that we were to lose -
Millions of dollars by holding the Cuphere in New Zealand.
This is how I came up with my essential question:“How is New Zealand planning to earn back the losses coming from the Rugby World Cup?”
First, on interest.co.nz and in the New Zealand Herald, I found out that the Government are still long fromreaching their $39.5 million target – 200,000 more tickets were yet to be sold, and the shortfall, on the 23/8, was $70,000,000!
The New Zealand Government were not only well aware of the situation we were in – they confirmed that the estimations were TRUE!
Then, I looked to the websites of the New Zealand Treasury and IRD. As I found out, as of May 31st, the assets of the Government are worth a total $244.367 BILLION.
That means that the predictions were quite irrelevant to the Government.
Then I thought, “If this is • barely even a problem for • the Government, are we • going to do anything to • try and earn back the • losses?” Who did I ask for an • answer? The Government. • RWC Minister Murray • McCullyto be exact.
To my surprise, I got an answer. Apparently, the Government is hoping for the following to earn back any losses. • International media attention • Broadening of • business relationships • International confidence in • our ability to host major events • Satisfied visitors endorsing • New Zealand
To Recap … Claims were made that NZ was to lose money from the RWC. The claims are 100% true, but the Government aren’t planning on doing anything about it, because they have enough money on their own to cover the losses.
Back to my EQ – “How are we planning to earn back any losses coming from the RWC?” The answer?
We have left the situation in the hands of the media, businesses, event organizers, and tourists, hoping that they decide to showcase the RWC/promote a business within NZ/organize a major event here, or come here as a tourist …
… So, in the end, NO CHANGE has come from this Task. STOP! The situation may now seem irrelevant to any New Zealander now, but it isn’t!
We could actually help the Government with “satisfied visitors endorsing NZ”, and make sure that it happens. I then surveyed Room 10 on what they thought NZers could do to contribute to ‘satisfying visitors that endorse New Zealand’.
The Results 30% - Be nice and respectful to them, and help them out. 70% - Encourage tourists to See our museums/beaches /theme parks/zoos, etc.
So, change has come from my Task. I plan on being nice and respectful to the tourists that are here for the Rugby World Cup. Will you?
Headache or Cure? The school question. From what I have found, my RWC Task has been both. It seems that the RWC may be a headache for the Government, but it is a cure for us, as normal NZers.
What have I gained from this Task? Not just myself, but many NZers have more responsibility in providing a good experience for these tourists. I also now have new opinions / perspectives of money, and the Government, and have new ideas for using resources.
This has been Rhys the Stick Figure’s Rugby World Cup Task Presentation. I hope you enjoyed it, and maybe even learnt something along the way.
