International Day of Older Persons 2018 - We can all Champion Human Rights and be Human Rights Champions – Take the Pledge!

The Team from Age Concern New Zealand

International Day of Older Persons is a day to celebrate all older people – to highlight the value of all older people and to promote dignity and respect. The 2018 international theme is “Celebrating Older Human Rights Champions“.


This year Age Concern New Zealand want all New Zealanders to sign up as Age Concern Dignity Champions and stand up for the human rights of older Kiwis.


“There is no excuse for elder abuse, says Stephanie Clare, Age Concern New Zealand Chief Executive. I am appalled that we are still having to deal with cases each day where older people are taken advantage of.


“Just because someone is older it doesn’t mean they are less valuable, have less purpose or should lose basic human rights, the right to make their own choices and respect from those around them.

“Of the cases we see, 75% of alleged abusers are family members, either adult children or partners of adult children and that needs to stop!

“So come on Kiwis we all have a part to play. You can take a stand against ageism and join me by signing up today!” says Stephanie.

An Age Concern Dignity Champion pledges to:
• Reject stereotypes and focus on the uniqueness of every individual
• Speak up when they hear people speaking negatively about growing old
• Have the courage to question practices they feel are disrespectful to older people
• Not patronise older people
• Be patient, polite and friendly
• Have zero tolerance for abuse or neglect
• Build relationships – they combat isolation and loneliness by getting to know the older people in their lives.

Māori Language Week gives us a chance to celebrate something truly unique to our country. The theme this year was 'Kia Kaha te Reo Māori’. ‘Kia Kaha’ means ‘be strong’ so when we say ‘Kia Kaha te Reo Māori’ we’re saying - ‘Let’s make the Māori language strong'.

At kindergarten we regularly and actively use Te Reo in our daily practice alongside and with our children. We also value the importance of waiata (songs) as a very effective learning tool for our children to learn Te Reo as music and singing are something that we all collectively love. Last week we filled our days immersed in Maori language by sharing all our favourite Maori songs, learning a new karakia, reading stories in Te Reo and completing Te Reo puzzles together.

Currently the set up and pack down process is proving a little tricky as parents try to help but are also needing to support their own young ones. You may have skills in welcoming people as they arrive, making the hot drinks for others, sitting with children and their parents/caregivers while they play, helping with the set up and pack away of the session, supporting the music session at the end of playgroup. Any help you are prepared to give would be hugely appreciated by the families attending
Warmest regards

Hi neighbours,

Have you heard this trick before? A handy hack on how to open OXO cubes is causing a stir online, as it seems many of us have been doing it all wrong.

Forget crumbling up the cube after opening the silver foil packaging - it seems that packaging was actually designed to be flattened. To read more click here.

Simply open up the flaps on the side, flatten them out and then crumble the cube inside the package, turning it into a powder that's a heck of a lot easier to add to your dish.

Did you know this handy trick? Have you been opening the cubes the wrong way your whole life like the rest of us? Will this make cooking for your family a little easier? Share your thoughts in the replies below!
