Should New Zealand history be taught in all schools?

The team Reporter from Whangarei Leader

Hi neighbours - Jacinda Ardern has announced that all schools and kura would be expected, by 2022, to teach the country's history.

Curriculum changes would reset a national framework so that all learners and ākonga were aware of key aspects of New Zealand history and how they had influenced and shaped the nation.

What do you think? Should New Zealand history be taught in all schools, or are there other, more important subjects to teach?

What do you think should be done with the Municipal Building?

Denise Piper Reporter from Whangarei Leader

The future of Whangārei's iconic Municipal Building is now uncertain after Thursday's fire ripped through the 107-year-old building. What do you think should be done now? Would you contribute money or rates to have it re-built?

Swimming Pool Parties At The Aqua Centre

Chris from Maunu

I heard on the grapevine that, as from November, residents won't be able to bring their own food. Instead, they will have to buy it from the café. Out of interest, who could afford to do this? Who's idea was it and why? It's a relatively cheap option for Parents. There were 7 families enjoying their parties yesterday. If it ain't broken, why fix it? Has anyone else heard this? If so, your comments would be appreciated. Thank You.
