Coronavirus: Nearby schools react to Covid-19 case at West Auckland high school

Danielle Clent Reporter from Western Leader

Hi neighbours, a student at a West Auckland primary school has been identified as a close contact of a coronavirus case.
It comes after a student at nearby St Dominic’s Catholic College tested positive for the virus. The girls-only school on Rathgar Rd in Henderson is surrounded by a number of other schools, including Liston College and Waitākere College on the same street.

Do you have children who attend these schools? Are you concerned? Tell us in the comments below.

Poll: Are you confident Auckland's light rail project will go ahead?

Caryn Wilkinson Reporter from Community News

Auckland mayor Phil Goff says an announcement could be made soon on Auckland's light rail.

The $6 billion project to revive a tram network in Auckland was one of Labour's initial election promises in 2017.

After Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern's big victory on October 17, the light rail system connecting the airport to Auckland's central city may finally get off the ground.

But Transport Minister Phil Twyford alluded key decisions are still to be made.

Twyford said in June the governing parties could not agree on a preferred proposal and the future of the project would be decided by the new Government following the election.
