Has anyone ever seen something like the image below in an older Kiwi home? Does anyone remember them from their childhood? These strange slots allowed you to rid yourself of an old razor and never think of it again...but it also meant, years down the track, that someone renovating would be in for a nasty, rusty surprise.
I'm certain I've seen something like this here in Aotearoa-NZ, but can't for the life of me recall where. It was in the back of the medicine cupboard. Let us know if you've seen, had - or have - one in your home.
Join members of the Te Awamutu Community Board for the inaugural Kihikihi Summer Stroll tomorrow from 1pm.
Take a self-guided heritage walk of Kihikihi between 1-3pm (collect your guide from the Police House) and then relax and enjoy The Cossie Ukes at the Temple Cottage (Tu Rata Reserve) from 3.30-4.30pm.
The Kihikihi Summer Stroll is an initiative of the Te Awamutu Community Board, Kihikihi Police House and Temple Cottage Trust and Māori Women's Welfare League.
We would love to see you there!
The Sunday Star-Times is looking into the rise of transportable/ kit-set/ pre fabricated homes. The upsides are build-efficiency, quality of design, and cost. The downsides appear to be land supply, red-tape with council and difficulty getting lending from banks. If you're willing to share your experience - good or bad - email firstname.lastname@example.org, otherwise leave a comment. Is there an aspect of transportable housing you'd like us to enquire about for you?
When New Zealand’s Alert Level 4 came into effect in March 2020, schools around the country faced the challenge of a transitioning from onsite to online learning.
As students adjusted to the shift in their educational environment, many schools were ill-prepared to move to quickly to online learning. Schools such as St Peter’s in Cambridge were readily prepared for a seamless transfer between classroom and digital learning.
With each student ready to use online platforms such as Google Classroom and Hangouts, a streamlined shift was enabled as soon as the lockdown occurred.
Find out why more families are choosing St Peter’s at our Open Day on 12 March.
