Always dreamed of going to the ballet?

The Team from Neighbourly.co.nz

Well now you can - live, in your living room.

The Neighbourly team is super grateful to our friends at Royal New Zealand Ballet for their support over the years - so we're excited to be telling our Neighbourly members about their very special event: Live in your Living Room.

This weekend, grab a cuppa and some gingerbread and venture in to the dark, fantastical realm of Hansel & Gretel. Inspired by the old-fashioned magic of silent movies and music hall vaudeville, this ballet will transport you to a magical world with large-scale cinematic effects, world premiere choreography by Loughlan Prior and a specially commissioned score by Claire Cowan.

Live in your Living Room. This curated series of productions from the RNZB archive will be broadcast weekly on Facebook Premiere.

Enjoy performances at Friday 3 April at 7.30pm; Saturday 4 April at 1.30pm and Sunday 5 April at 10.30am.

Is choosing a co-ed or single sex school a parent's right?

Katy Jones Reporter from The Nelson Mail

Nayland College, the only mixed gender high school in Nelson city, says it will implement an enrolment zone in 2021, because of the school's growing roll. The zone will likely mean families in central Nelson won't have the choice of a co-ed school any more, with their local high school being either all boys school, Nelson College, or Nelson College for Girls. But some parents say their children are not suited to a single sex school.
