Hi neighbours,

Do you think primary teachers and principals should be striking? Thousands of teachers have taken industrial action on Wednesday, with dozens of rallies planned around the country. They aim to gain attention for better pay, conditions and incentives to attract new teachers. Although about 30,000 people in the profession are involved in the strike, not everyone agrees with it.

So, what are your thoughts on the strike? Do you think teachers deserve better pay? Or should they have stayed around the negotiating table for longer? Are you a teacher or parent with views on the topic? Let us know in the replies!

Old second-hand cellphone wanted!!

Hayden from Johnsonville

Hi Everyone,
I am a 15 year-old NCEA student at Onslow College. I'm just wondering if anyone has an old smart phone they no longer use that I could have for cheap or free.
I have been without a functional phone since 2 degrees shut down the 2G network in March.
Many thanks, Hayden.
