What do you think about the Government's school shake up?

Mandy Te Reporter from Kapi-Mana News

Hi neighbours, does the Government's school shake up impact you? On Tuesday, the Education Minister released a review which recommends boards lose power to set zones, an independent panel be set up to handle disputes/suspensions, changes to board of trustees and principals and scrapping the "decile" system. Do you support these changes? What would you like to see?

Jason from Ranui

Hey team,

I just got some wardrobes installed in two rooms and my original carpet layers bailed on me. Anyone have time today today to stick my existing carpet back into the wardrobes?

Our kinda kindness at AMI

AMI Insurance

When a Christchurch school lost four classrooms to fire, retired AMI Branch Manager Philip Buckingham knew how he could help.

Philip – “ When one of our offices is relocated or refitted as a flexi workspace, there are all sorts of useful items left behind — stationery, file cabinets, chairs, desks, computer monitor arms. For years now, we have gathered it all up and donated it to schools; initially those hit particularly hard by the Christchurch earthquakes. It’s hard to explain, but it’s just in our DNA at AMI to help people. After the Russley School fire, there was an urgent need to get the kids some stationery. On my way home, I went to the school and spoke with the principal, Greg Lewis. We couldn’t have asked for a better principal for the school, he is such a great guy.”
