This week we're looking at how the pandemic will affect our children and their resilience. The Sunday Star-Times wants to hear from children about how they've been impacted by Covid-19 and lockdown. Perhaps they've learned more about hand washing and germs, or maybe they want to talk about having mum or dad home more often, or learning from home. Kids can write a sentence or two to be included in print by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, by Friday, July 10, at 5pm. Their first names and ages may be used in print. Parents, if you're happy for your children to be photographed please let us know.

Kmart will not reopen its Dunedin store anytime soon, and will be replaced in the city’s Meridian Mall by Smiths City.
The Kmart store recently closed in the mall and a spokesperson said on Tuesday they had been unable to find a temporary site as planned. Staff would be redeployed, and otherwise would face redundancy, the spokesperson said. Kmart has been in the city for 23 years.
Smiths City on Tuesday confirmed its move to the site previously occupied by Kmart.
Earlier this year The Warehouse announced it would be closing nine stores across the country, including its Dunedin central store, which will now become a “dark store”, used only for filling online orders.
