Hi readers,

Lots happening in Te Kowhai - some good and some not so good stuff. But as you'll see from our page 3 story, at least the offender was caught.

In this issue:
- Interview with Faye Dunn
_ Te Kowhai Memories: a new section by local photographer and writer Shirley Warner.
- The low down on local elections including who's standing for what role.
- Awesome photos from the latest PTA Quiz Night.
- Changes to Te Kowhai Community Group's members and ways they work.
- More quiz action at the Airfield coming up!

Finally, apologies to our advertisers (those starting with M and onward). Human error at the printers meant that 4 pages of trades and services weren't included in the magazine. Including our lovely new supporters Narellan Pools and Waikato Petfoods. Trades and Services will be back in full next time.

Please support our local businesses, without their support this magazine wouldn't exist.

Free school lunches - A fantastic or flawed idea?

Hi neighbours - thousands of school kids will get a free lunch at school, Jacinda Ardern has announced.

Ardern says "children themselves told us during the consultation on the strategy that going to school hungry was a barrier to their learning."

Education spokeswoman Nikki Kaye says the Government hasn't considered that most schools don't have infrastructure for large scale food preparation and storage. She says "this would cost hundreds of millions and take away the autonomy of parents to provide lunch for their children".

What are your thoughts? Do you think this is a fantastic or flawed idea? Would you prefer that schools prepared your child's lunch?

Hi neighbours - Jacinda Ardern has announced that all schools and kura would be expected, by 2022, to teach the country's history.

Curriculum changes would reset a national framework so that all learners and ākonga were aware of key aspects of New Zealand history and how they had influenced and shaped the nation.

What do you think? Should New Zealand history be taught in all schools, or are there other, more important subjects to teach?
