Wooden cupboard / pantry wanted

Lesley from Mapua

I am looking for a freestanding wooden cupboard or pantry, preferably around 2m tall. Old is ok if it is solid.

Should more schools change the way they teach children to read?

Katy Jones Reporter from The Tasman Leader

A community meeting in Motueka on Wednesday evening is due to feature discussion with a Massey University professor, whose research shows a more phonics-based approach is needed to teaching literacy in schools. Parents lobbying nationwide for the change to "structured literacy", which teaches reading and writing consecutively, say phonics books should replace the "Ready to Read" books most schools use to help children learn to read. Do you agree?
