Looking for a family carer.

Martin from Frankleigh Park

Hours 18 - 25

Hello, my name is Eileen. I live with my husband and our animals in our family home. In October 2019, i suffered a stroke. My challenges are my mobility; my right side is weaker, and my speech.We are keen to meet a female (30 plus) who enjoys socialising and who is able to take me out and about. I also like assistance with preparation of dinner, 3x weekly; negotiable on which evenings. We would enjoy a person who is chatty, bubbly and reliable. Needs to be attentive and patient listener. You must have a car. Looking forward hearing from you. PS: Downstairs flat available to rent for the right person.

What's your experience with pre-fabricated homes?

Kelly Dennett Reporter from Sunday Star Times

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 kelly.dennett@stuff.co.nz, otherwise leave a comment. Is there an aspect of transportable housing you'd like us to enquire about for you?

Choosing an education in a covid world

St Peter's School

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.
