The Ink Beneath the Blue...

New Zealand Police

Our latest recruitment campaign explores the personal stories and cultural backgrounds of some of our officers, reflected in the tattoos they have.

It is these personal backgrounds, combined with the training provided by Police, which enables our staff to more empathetically and effectively police in New Zealand's diverse communities.

Bring your unique story and join the NZ Police whānau today.

Are you a fan of fast fashion?

Kelly Dennett Reporter from Sunday Star Times

Many of us grew up flocking to Glassons, Hallenstein's, Cotton On and Just Jeans for our hardy perennials - jeans, t-shirts, summer dresses - and some of us still do.

But we're increasingly becoming aware that buying a $20 t-shirt that won't last the distance isn't that great for the environment.

While some of us are pledging to only buy second hand or to invest in statement pieces - more expensive items that will last a long time- not all of us have that luxury.

We're wanting to speak to someone who isn't giving up their fast fashion any time soon, whether it's for economic or style reasons, personal choice or indifference to the environment. Maybe you're a student who likes the choice chain store fashion brings, or perhaps you're a parent whose children are growing too fast to risk splashing out on expensive clothing.

If this sounds like you, please email kelly.dennett@stuff.co.nz.

Teaching young children values right from the start

The Team from Graeme Dingle Foundation

Cori Maroroa knows first hand just how good the #KiwiCan programme is for kids. After all, Maroroa loved it when she went through it a primary school as a student.

Now she is helping new generations of primary school students benefit from the same programme as one of its senior leaders.
