The National Party introduced their policy called 'teaching the basics brilliantly' last year regarding changing school curriculums. They are referring to reading, writing and maths.

However, some people believe school should actually be more practical, teaching kids to change tyres and balance their finances. Thinking about all the skills that have benefited you over the years, tell us what would be taught at your School of Life?

It's been 13 years since the 2011 earthquake - a day many of us will never forget.

If you'd like to look back on Christchurch as it was before the earthquakes hit you may wish to head to Google Maps today and see past images of your old school, workplace or favourite haunts.

How to do it:
- Head to Google Maps and click the yellow man icon in the bottom right corner.
- If you search an address or location then move him to a spot on the map, it brings up Street View.
- There is a black menu and usually an option to "See more dates". You can view that spot on the map in past Google street images.

Feel free to share any of your finds on Neighbourly for others to see!
