Kmart's list of 31 recalls

Hi neighbours, do you love Kmart?

Hundreds of thousands of inexpensive items that pass through the retail giant's checkouts every year, so it's only to be expected there will be recalls – Kmart even has a recalls page on its website, and there are 31 products on the list.

Hi neighbours, do you love Kmart?

Hundreds of thousands of inexpensive items that pass through the retail giant's checkouts every year, so it's only to be expected there will be recalls – Kmart even has a recalls page on its website, and there are 31 products on the list.

The $55 timber Occasional Chair is the latest casualty, although this is a withdrawal rather than a recall. We don't know the reason for its withdrawal, except Kmart says it is for "a potential quality issue". But what other products have been found wanting?

Our can collection initiative 'Cans for Good' with Wattie's is back for 2019 and we'd love you to get involved! The campaign will run for two weeks between Monday 5th and Friday 16th August and registration is open to all schools from kindergarten to high schools.

*What is Cans for Good?*
Cans for Good is an exciting national education and can collection campaign. Last year, Cans for Good was a huge success - more than 240 schools took part, collecting more than 70,000 cans to fill Salvation Army foodbanks.
The campaign brings together a charitable can collection drive and creative competition. It's supported by a set of teacher resources designed to engage children in fun, team-based learning experiences. The resources are available to download for free when you register online.

*Prizes*
As well as doing good in your community, having fun and learning, your school can also win some great prizes! Along with a competition for the best can creation, we have introduced a fun new campaign where your students can show or tell us how they think Wattie’s Spaghetti is made. We'll pick the most creative entry from each category: Kindergarten, Primary/Intermediate and Secondary School. The overall winner will receive a Wattie’s lunch shout for their school!

*Register today!*
Since the Watties partnership began in 1994, more than 1.4 million cans have been donated and this year through the support of New Zealand schools participating in Cans for Good we hope to achieve our target of 1.5 million cans!
Cans from each school will be given to the local Salvation Army or community foodbanks. These will help refill the shelves after the high winter demand period and enable schools around New Zealand to make a real difference to those in need in their community. To take part, register online by 31st July.

A new law in Wales says schools are required to have gender-neutral uniforms.

This means that while uniforms can include both skirts and pants, schools can't label these as "girls" or "boys" items.

Should NZ follow suit?

It’s not easy growing up in New Zealand today. The Salvation Army and The Warehouse Group know that life can be tough for young people, and that's why we teamed up to develop an innovative and effective youth development programme called ‘Aspire’.

Launched in 2015, thanks to seed funding received from The Warehouse Group's 2014 Suppliers Dinner and ongoing funding support from Warehouse Stationery, Aspire has helped more than 1000 young people develop the skills, confidence, knowledge and networks they need to successfully address challenges and achieve their goals.

From now until the end of July, donations from Warehouse Stationery customers will help support hundreds of at-risk teens who aspire to change their lives.
