Hi Neighbours, The V8 supercars race costs Auckland ratepayers $1.2m and is the city's most-publicly-sponsored major event. So how did it suddenly end up shifting from its Pukekohe home to Waikato's Hampton Downs? Read the story below:
Two international students due to start school at Auckland's Macleans College next week are stuck in China due to the deadly coronavirus lockdown.
Macleans College principal Steven Hargreaves confirmed the students were not yet allowed to return to New Zealand due to an internal travel ban on Wuhan.
The two unrelated students studied at the east Auckland college last year, and had planned to return to their same homestay families.
It is not yet clear when they'll be allowed to leave Wuhan, however, when they do return to New Zealand, they won't be allowed back at school for a week while on the look out for flu-like symptoms.
Are you concerned about coronavirus entering New Zealand?
