Would you like a large Shake(speare) with those fries?

Kate Green Reporter from Dominion Post

Young New Zealanders will know there’s nowhere better for a heart-to-heart than the McDonald’s drive-through.

When Covid-19 shook up the format of the Sheilah Winn Shakespeare Festival, three year-13 students from Wellington College used the opportunity to get off the stage and onto location.

Year-13 Wellington College students Logan Forsyth, Joshua Kemp Whimp, and George Parker decided to film a scene from Shakespeare’s Henry IV, Part 1, in a car.

The boys were old hands at the competition, having entered every year for the past five years.

Poll: Should Aayla be allowed to play?

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

A team of keen young Petone rugby league players will forfeit their points and risk disqualifying themselves in an upcoming tournament because one of their star players is banned.
The reason? She’s a girl. Aayla Toman, 13, has been told she’s not allowed to play in the u13 boys’ grade in Wellington’s Pacific Youth Cup because of her gender – something that led her club team, the u13 Petone Panthers, to play her ‘illegally’ all season.
New Zealand Rugby League rules state the maximum age for males and females to play in mixed gender full contact rugby league is 12 years of age.

Friday Feathered Friend

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

This week we feature Thomas the tūī and a lovely picture and words from by Simon Woolf.

"This is our spring friend, Thomas the tūī , enjoying nectar from a kowhai tree my sister gave us as a present over 20 years ago! The kowhai is such a feature in our garden, having been replanted as a small tree, which hadn't as yet flowered, from our first home in Standen St. Thanks heaps Deb."
