Parkside School students shine in Baywatch parody

Sapeer Mayron Reporter from Franklin County News

Kia ora Neighours - I hope you're all doing well in this latest lockdown.

Students at a south Auckland school are putting their personalities on display in a parody of the long-running television show Baywatch.

Starring four Parkside School students – Leeroy Brown, 6, Charlee Foote, 17, Montele DeThierry, 13, and William Culley, 15, the saga follows a thief stealing from a woman on a beach, who gets taken in by a lifeguard and a police officer, only to make friends with their victim.

Watch at the link below and don't forget to vote to help the students win in the Focus on Ability Short Film Festival!

Anti vaccine

Brian from Papakura

I have a query for those that refuse the current covid vaccine. Are you anti vaccine and refuse any vaccine, or are you against the type of vaccine available in NZ, the mRNA one.
Would you be vaccinated if a non mRNA vaccine was available, as the usual annual flu vaccine is?
Some different types are here. www.healthcareitnews.com...
If you are against the mRNA vaccine only, would you all join together to lobby the government to buy in an alterative vaccine for you all, so enabling teachers, nurses, doctors etc to be vaccinated and stay safe and remain in their occupations.

New Nordic Cuisine

New Nordic Cuisine had redefined the food culture of Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Iceland and Finland.
Our own Chef Finn is from Denmark and spent his formative years working in Michelin star rated restaurants including working as Sous Chef for legendary Noma chef, Rene Redzepi.

This menu is inspired by Chef Finn’s Nordic heritage.
"We work with local high quality ingredients to combine good taste in food with contemporary culinary techniques,” says Chef Finn.

Here are some photos of the dishes our Diploma students prepared and served.
1. Tartare of Trevalli on Rye bread with pickled beetroot, sorrel and brown butter siphon.
