Poll: Does this historic bus rule need to change?

Nicola Brennan-Tupara Reporter from Cambridge Edition

The rules also allow school buses not to pick up children who live within 3.2km.

It’s not easy growing up in New Zealand today. The Salvation Army and The Warehouse Group know that life can be tough for young people, and that's why we teamed up to develop an innovative and effective youth development programme called ‘Aspire’.

Launched in 2015, thanks to seed funding received from The Warehouse Group's 2014 Suppliers Dinner and ongoing funding support from Warehouse Stationery, Aspire has helped more than 1000 young people develop the skills, confidence, knowledge and networks they need to successfully address challenges and achieve their goals.

From now until the end of July, donations from Warehouse Stationery customers will help support hundreds of at-risk teens who aspire to change their lives.

Find out more about the programme and how to donate here: www.thewarehousegroup.co.nz...

This is a stunning dining table with 6 leather chairs. Each chair covered full back and seat in quality leather and on secure castors. Each chair has 'arms' and all are super comfortable with great back support.
Table measures: 1.05metres bay 2.15metres.
Wood is Pacific Coconut - the timber resembles pattern of Honeysuckle. The chairs are in perfect condition. The table has a water mark on the surface which has lifted an area of the 'polyurethane' finish. There are tiny surface marks and there is one edge where the timber joins have moved very slightly (less than 0.25mm). Surface can be quite easily restored with a sand and re-polyurethane. Table is structurally sound.
Price is negotiable - Genuine inquirers only please.

Imagine having to sit in the dark on a cold night, wrapped in a blanket for warmth because you couldn’t afford heating or power?

Sadly, this is a reality for many Kiwi families living in poverty at the moment, as they struggle through a cold winter without even the basics to survive. They are often forced to choose between providing food, warmth and shelter for their family, knowing the profound impact that going without even one of these things will have on their health and well-being.

Please support this ‘Lights On’ Winter Appeal and help keep families safe, warm and sheltered this winter.

Sharonika finds resilience through Graeme Dingle Foundation

Teen Sharonika Prasad used to be scared, of life, of opportunity.

She lacked self-confidence. ‘‘I had a negative mind set in which I had beliefs that I would never be successful at anything, with a very low self-esteem. ‘‘I made excuses because I had no motivation and little confidence and I let life pass me by even if it was a wonderful opportunity because I was so afraid of the unknown.’’

Not anymore! Prasad, 18, and the youngest in a family of five, is now working as a caregiver while studying a foundation course at NZMA for occupational therapy and has realised she ‘‘could do anything’’. She is the first in her family to go to university. The South Auckland teen has found her potential with the help of our Foundation that aims to transform young Kiwi lives.
