Generation Pandemic: How has Covid-19 affected your children?

Kelly Dennett Reporter from Sunday Star Times

This week we're looking at how the pandemic will affect our children and their resilience. The Sunday Star-Times wants to hear from children about how they've been impacted by Covid-19 and lockdown. Perhaps they've learned more about hand washing and germs, or maybe they want to talk about having mum or dad home more often, or learning from home. Kids can write a sentence or two to be included in print by emailing kelly.dennett@stuff.co.nz, by Friday, July 10, at 5pm. Their first names and ages may be used in print. Parents, if you're happy for your children to be photographed please let us know.

Save the Maitai - Kaka Valley

Tony from Maitai

Contrary to what you might read in the Mail or on Stuff at the moment, our group is NOT opposed to the Atawhai Ridge subdivision. We are concerned ONLY with the Kaka Valley subdivision. These two developments are being promoted by two different companies and are TWO SEPERATE projects, linked only by joining forces on their approach to council. Kaka Valley is the old Carter's Farm accessed from Ralphine Way. It is nowhere near Atawhai, Walter's Bluff, or Centre of New Zealand !
