Elesha Gordon Reporter from Marlborough Express

Hi neighbours! The Government has announced plans to reform NCEA by 2025, with more focus on numeracy and literacy, and 50 per cent internal exams and 50 per cent external. Is it a fair way to measure students?

Hi neighbours! The Government has announced plans to reform NCEA by 2025, with more focus on numeracy and literacy, and 50 per cent internal exams and 50 per cent external. Is it a fair way to measure students?

Marlborough Girls' College principal Mary-Jeanne Lynch said a "one size fits all" overhaul of assessments was a "broad brush approach" that would not work for everyone. Do you think this would help any students you know? Let us know by commenting below! Read more here.

For those sharing a driveway or unit/apartment, we know that it can be a big deal asking your neighbours for their consent to install fibre. So our team has come up with a few tips to help make the process nice and easy! We hope you find these ideas helpful:

1. Do your research. Your Fibre Network Company's website provides information on the consent process and why it's required.

2. Make sure you have the consent form printed out or easily accessible so you only have to ask once and make one trip next door.

3. Evenings are a great time to make sure everyone in your neighbour's household and home and available to provide consent.

4. Make a night of it! Take along some baking or enjoy a cup of tea together. It could be a good chance to get to know your neighbours.

5. Be nice and accommodating. Your neighbours might need some room to make a decision, so grab their email address or phone number so you can follow up at a later date.

Poll: What do you think about the cemetery fee increase?

Chloe Ranford Reporter from Marlborough Express

Burials costs will double at most cemeteries in Marlborough in bid to shave down rates by 0.2 per cent, or about $5.30 per ratepayer per year. The increase will also make maintaining rural cemeteries more fair, the council says. Do you support the increase?

Three new playgrounds are under construction, reflecting the Council’s commitment to improved facilities for children.

Pollard Park's foundation pads have been laid and the first ‘acorn’ pods have been installed. Completion is only a month away. The equipment from Pollard Park is being ‘upcycled’ for this site and will have a farm-style theme.

A new playground at Mark Smith Reserve, on the Boulevard Park on Taylor subdivision, is expected to be open by late June.

Construction of the new Renwick Domain playground is also progressing too, and expected to be opened by mid-June.

Becoming a Neighbourly Premium Business allows you to connect with people that live near your business, the people you’re most likely to meet in real life.

If you'd like to be the business that locals turn to first, why don't you consider Neighbourly Premium?

"After signing up with Neighbourly in August 2017, we quickly noticed the number of users that were engaging with us through our messages. As Auckland’s number one moving and delivery company, we wanted Neighbourly members to understand what makes our customers love us.

"We’ve been able to do just that through our messages and posts. The benefits of Neighbourly in Auckland were so great that as soon as we opened our second branch in Tauranga it was one of our priorities to set up! It really works and the more effort you put in, the better the results you get." -- Devan Devaroyan, Director of Smart Express
