We Say, You Say: Auckland Uni Exams

The Team from Neighbourly.co.nz

Hi Neighbours,

Auckland uni students have spoken out against on-campus exams this year as their overseas counterparts will be able to check notes while they will not be able to.

Those international and domestic students remaining in New Zealand will be completing their exams under supervised conditions. A university email obtained by Stuff showed that overseas students will also be given a 30 minute grace period, in case of any technical faults, with this time able to be used towards the final exam.

Do you think this is fair?

I. Hate. RATS. 🐀

Markus from Green Bay

I had started my first compost last year, but had a feeling it was getting smaller lately. Today there could be no doubt: the heap was really disturbed, and a deep tunnel was visible (see picture). So I guess rats had tunnelled in from underneath. I googled how to make my compost rodent proof, but of course the wire mesh I would need is not an essential item that Mitre 10 or Bunnings could sell. But maybe anyone has some leftover galvanised wire mesh (holes no bigger than about 1.25 cm, as mice and baby rats can squeeze through anything bigger) from their own rodent proofing, approximately 1.25 m x 1.25 m square?
Thanks
Markus
