What is daylight saving time?
It’s that time of year when the clocks change, but why does this happen?
Daylight saving time was first introduced in New Zealand in 1927. The main reason is to provide people with an additional hour to enjoy the outdoors in the evenings.
Changing clocks also acts as a reminder for people to test the smoke alarms in their home.
