Campbells Bay School pōhutukawa trees saved from the chop after local outcry

Hi neighbours. A grove of pōhutukawa trees that were to be axed to make way for new classrooms have been saved from the chop following local outcry.

The Ministry of Education planned to fell the trees – five pōhutukawa and one Norfolk pine – at Campbells Bay School in Auckland early this year.

The plans prompted parents and local residents to launch a petition calling for the trees to be saved, and instead design a building which preserves them.

But this month, the Ministry of Education has shared new plans for the classroom block.

It will be set back an additional 4.5 metres from the school’s fence on Aberdeen Rd, meaning the six trees will remain, with some limited root reduction and canopy trimming.

Approximately 35% of our population suffer from varicose veins. Varicose veins can lead to leg aching, tiredness, heaviness. Often the long-term problems of swelling, itchiness, leg cramps and ulcers are not recognized as being associated with veins. 

Modern-day treatment is usually non-surgical (injections or laser), and greatly improves a varicose vein sufferer’s quality of life.

Most health insurance companies cover varicose vein treatment but not cosmetic (thread vein) treatment.

At Vein & Laser Dr Elisabeth De Felice will see you for each of your appointments to ensure continuity of care.

Missing French teen Eloi Rolland: Friends and family still have no answers a year on

Caroline Williams Reporter from Auckland Stuff

In 2019, French teenager Eloi Rolland arrived in New Zealand to study. He partied, got a job and made friends. But six months later he disappeared without a trace. A year on, police say “his fate remains unknown” and his case looks set to be referred to the coroner. Caroline Williams reports.

In 2019, French teenager Eloi Rolland arrived in New Zealand to study. He partied, got a job and made friends. But six months later he disappeared without a trace. A year on, police say “his fate remains unknown” and his case looks set to be referred to the coroner. Caroline Williams reports.

During his time in Auckland, Rolland went to the zoo, enjoyed nights out, worked at a popular bar, dabbled in modelling and, with friends, visited Piha on the rugged west coast.

Before his disappearance, Rolland expressed to his family that he wished to visit Piha again, and on March 6 last year, he did just that.

He has not been seen or heard from since.

“Each day we feel more and more worried and more helpless," his father Thierry Rolland tells Stuff.
