There are many, and a few more people who are moving to working on line, either people who went to work each day or our students who could be soon working online, here is a word of caution.


The scammers are already at work.


Do please watch out for emails asking for log on requests, the email may look like it's legitimate and from the real source but hover your mouse at the From Address and this may show a very different source.
Some emails may ask you to log in but be cautious, most companies like your bank, Microsoft, Amazon and others would never normally send you an email to ask you to log in again, Think! the email looks real....


The best precautions are, if available is to use a two factor way of a log in, one online and then send a code to your personal phone, and in that way you know its verified and then use the code sent.


Please take care, if you have questions and are not sure, post your concerns here and I am sure as a community we can help. David.

Demand is still tracking pretty high for this time of year – just look at the level of demand this year compared to the past two years!*

Supply from rivers in Wainuiomata has dropped out, and now we’re using a lot more water from our storage lakes.

Lake usage has averaged about 41MLD over the last week, and levels have dropped 9% in the last week.

Catchments are still very dry, and there isn’t much rain on the forecast! Please continue to observe water restrictions until they come off, and of course, always use water wisely.

Have you found yourself back in the classroom - virtual or otherwise - long after you left school? We’re looking for people who have taken steps to futureproof their careers by upskilling.

Perhaps you’re teaching yourself to code, or maybe you’ve enrolled in an evening class or online course to help your employment prospects. It might have been something you did with your employer’s blessing, or maybe you’ve struck out on your own.

Maybe you’ve struggled to find work and did it as a way to get back on the career ladder, or perhaps you’re concerned about the pace of change in your field and want to stay ahead.

Happy St Patricks Day!

Robert Anderson from Curtain Clean Hutt City

Here are 10 interesting facts about St Pattys Day to celebrate the holiday.
1. St. Patrick was not Irish - Ireland's patron saint was, in fact, from Wales!

Here are 10 interesting facts about St Pattys Day to celebrate the holiday.
1. St. Patrick was not Irish - Ireland's patron saint was, in fact, from Wales!
2. The first St. Patrick's Day parade took place in New York in the 1760s.
3. Though we've come to associate kelly green with the Irish and the holiday, the 5th-century saint's official colour was "Saint Patrick's blue," a light shade of sky blue. The colour green only became associated with the big day after it was linked to the Irish independence movement in the late 18th century.
4. Don’t be fooled by any holiday decorations showing lady leprechauns. In traditional Irish folk tales, there are no female leprechauns, only nattily attired little guys who spend their days making and mending shoes (meaning they earned that gold they're always guarding).
5. St. Patrick never got canonized by a pope, making his saintly status somewhat questionable.
6. Guinness sales soar on St. Patrick's Day. Recent figures show that 5.5 million pints of the black stuff are downed around the world every day. On St. Patrick's Day that figure is doubled.
7. Your odds of finding a four-leaf clover are about 1 in 10,000.
8. How did the shamrock become associated with St. Patrick? According to Irish legend, the saint used the three-leafed plant (which is not to be confused with the four-leaf clover) as a metaphor for the Holy Trinity when he was first introducing Christianity to Ireland.
9. According to Irish legend, St. Patrick wasn't originally called Patrick. His birth name was Maewyn Succat, but he changed it to Patricius after becoming a priest.
10. In Chicago every year, the Plumbers Local 110 union dyes the river "Kelly" green. The dye lasts for about five hours.
