Poll: Does this historical school bus rule need an overhaul?

Nicola Brennan-Tupara Reporter from Waikato Times

Hi neighbours,
A school bus rule from 1904 that takes $60 a week out of a Waikato family's pocket needs to change, politicians say.
The Ministry's 115-year-old rule states school bus rides are only free for primary school children who live further than 3.2km away.
The rules also allow school buses not to pick up children who live within 3.2km.

A Doll’s House

Performing Arts Network of NZ

Tour-Makers and Twist Productions present A Doll’s House, by Emily Perkins, based on Ibsen’s original, directed by Katherine McRae.

Cleverly exposing the dynamics within a marriage, the New Zealand adaptation of the classic play by Norway's Henrik Ibsen, A Doll’s House, is set to make its Hamilton debut – playing for one night only at Clarence Street Theatre on Saturday 14th September.

Celebrated New Zealand writer Emily Perkins has created a masterpiece in her first work for the stage, exploring the social straitjackets we find ourselves in, and revealing how much – or how little – has changed since the Ibsen original premiered in 1879, with both being acclaimed by critics and audiences alike.

This production stars Sophie Hambleton, best known for her role as Carol O’Driscoll in TV3’s Westside.
