What would The School of Life teach?

The Team from Neighbourly.co.nz

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?

Poll: Would you pay more to scrap card surcharges?

The Team from Neighbourly.co.nz

We are used to tapping our card to pay in stores, but we are now having to decide whether to swipe it, insert it or use paywave depending on credit card surcharges. It can all be a bit tiring!

Would you rather that a retailer's card surcharges were just built into the cost of the items themselves? Share your thoughts below.
