Yet it is not part of our school curriculum.

Climate change is the most critical issue of the moment, and has been described by our prime minister as her generation's "nuclear-free moment". Its impacts, regardless of your views on it, are only going to get greater.

Yet it is not part of our school curriculum.

Some experts say that has to change. It is such an existential threat that not to make it a requirement to teach children about climate change is doing them a great disservice, they say.

The opening of the new Maniototo Hospital and aged care facility marked the end of Stage One of the health facility development.

The move to the new hospital and Elderly Care Facility took place on 1st April. We have received tremendous assistance from our staff and community to undertake the move which was a significant exercise in moving residents, furniture and equipment.

Stage Two is now underway with the previous Chalet Rest Home undergoing a complete refurbishment to convert the building into a centre to house the Medical Practice, X-ray, Visiting Clinics, Well Child, Plunket Mothers and Dentistry. This is expected to be complete by September.

Up to date with modern technology, there is a hearing loop to assist those with hearing aids and wireless internet able to be accessed from rooms.

The opening was a great day with the Minister of Health, Dr Clarke, CODC Mayor Tim Cadogan and Chairman of the Maniototo Health Board addressing the gathering of 150 people and cutting the ribbon to open the 31-bed facility.
