This is to enable them to open up the view of the Sir John Logan Campbell monument from Manukau Rd. A native garden of coprosma, fuchsia, hebes, lobelia and native geraniums will be planted along the edge instead.

Do you know the trees? Do you think they should be chopped down? Why or why?

Here's the story www.stuff.co.nz....

Dear Friends,

We proudly promote and develop cross-border educational exchanges and establish Sister School relationships between top schools in both NZ and China. We have had a total of 300 Kiwi students visiting their Chinese sister schools in the past year, and the Chinese families provided outstanding hosts to the visitors. When the Chinese students visit NZ, they will stay in host families for ten days for the entire visit to experience the 100% pure kiwi lifestyle and culture. We hope families can prepare three meals and transportation each day for the students. In return, you will receive $280 per week per student.

Feel free to contact us if you are keen to host at student_service@aedut.com or 09-368 1231.
