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?

Hi everyone,
We'd be keen to hear about your favourite foodie finds on your travels through NZ. Have you come across a particularly amazing cafe, bakery restaurant or food truck?

Please share the details below and include 'NFP' (not for publication) in your comment if you don't want it included in an article. Cheers.

recurrent gate repairs as TRILECT CANT fix it

Kaiwan from St Heliers

I have had recurrent problems with TRILECT automation for years. They 1st fit a chinese motor which their own techs said should not have been put in the 1st place.
Then after it got bust AMI paid for the new one which was too slow as per their own Tech guys. The gate has been stopping randomly since the last few months and we have got them to fix it and the next tech guy will blame the previous tech guy and the saga goes on. Has anyone else had this issue with Trilect or is it just me. The are charging me for each visit and it is very frustrating to see the gate stuck every few weeks. I cant trust TRILECT anymore as their own tech guys used to bad mouth the company . now the new guys are critising the old tech guys. Dont know who to believe. Now, I need to get someone else to check what is really wrong with this gate/motor. does anyone know any trustworthy gate automation company????
