Trick or treating: Love it or hate it

Mikaela Wilkes Reporter from Homed

Hey neighbours,
Halloween is fast approaching. Some Kiwis think it's great fun and go all out with decorations and lollies. Others just want to shut their doors and be left alone, leave it to the Americans.

Do you celebrate Halloween at your house? Why or why not?
And If you don't like… View more
Hey neighbours,
Halloween is fast approaching. Some Kiwis think it's great fun and go all out with decorations and lollies. Others just want to shut their doors and be left alone, leave it to the Americans.

Do you celebrate Halloween at your house? Why or why not?
And If you don't like trick or treating, how do you make it clear your house is a no-go zone?

We're keen to talk to some people who feel strongly about Halloween one way or the other. If you have thoughts to share, please email homed@stuff.co.nz and we'll be in touch.

Hi neighbours - I'm Rémy, one of thirteen young adults about to take on the challenge of our lifetimes! We're each climbing up Mount Maunganui 38 times in 38 hours (the vertical equivalent of Mount Everest!).

Our objective is simple: raise at least $10,000 for the CatWalk Trust, a charity dedicated to finding a cure for spinal cord injury. We will push the limits of what we can do on our own feet, so that someday more people will be able to get back on theirs.

We would love your support! You can donate directly here, and stay up to date with our progress by following @ThirtyEightin38 on Facebook and Instagram.

I'm excited to let you know that state integration has been confirmed for Hamilton Christian School. This has been a long journey for the school, and will provide opportunity for lower fees, increased roll growth, and stronger support from the Ministry of Education.

The following message is from Principal Shaun Brooker:

Kia ora whānau. It is with great excitement that I let you know I received a phone call from our Labour MP Jamie Strange, to let me know the Minister of Education has now signed our integration deed.

This signals the realisation of Hamilton Christian School becoming an Integrated school from the beginning of 2020. This is the most important step in the school becoming integrated. There are now some finer details that we will work through with the Ministry of Education.

One of those details is the Attendance Dues that we will need to charge for the coming year. While we are very excited that the school will become much more affordable for families we are still required to fund two aspects of the school. One is the buildings as we can now begin some significant building projects for more classrooms and a gymnasium. The second aspect of the school which is not funded by the MoE is our special character. For each of these we need to collect funds from parents, however, in return for the MoE not paying for these the MoE allows us to support our special character as we chose.

To fund the above Hamilton Christian School will charge parents Attendance Dues and Special Character Donation. While we do not have the final amount for these the overall total for these is expected to be approximately one-third of the current costs. For your planning we expect this to be between $1800 and $2400.

Please understand that the benefits of integration go well beyond just the money side of things. We will now have access to more Ministry resources for our students including ESOL support, learning support and behaviour support. We will also be able to access a number of Ministry funded initiatives for our NCEA students particularly in areas of the trades and alternative education.

This is a fantastic day for Hamilton Christian School. Thank you for your prayers and patience through this process.

To God be the Glory.

Shaun
