What has been one positive thing to come out of your time in lockdown?

The Team Reporter from Dominion Post

Hi neighbours,

We hope you're all coping well during these trying times in lockdown.

We'd love to know how you've found the lockdown, for a story to run in the Dominion Post and on Stuff, by answering these two questions:

1. What is the one thing you are most looking forward to post-lockdown?
(Could be fish 'n' chips, walking on the beach, or giving your mum a hug)

2. What has been one positive thing to come out of your time in lockdown? (Such as losing weight, learning how to cook bread, or spending more time with the kids)

If you'd like to be included, please email me at paul.harper@stuff.co.nz

Thank you, and stay safe!

Paul

Poll: Should Kiwis be entitled to more sick leave?

The Team Reporter from Stuff

With Covid-19 still a very real risk, people who are unwell are told to stay home, and to keep any sickly kids home too - but what if you don't have any more sick leave owing?

Most Kiwis are entitled to five days of sick leave a year, but some - often those in lower paid jobs - get less.

New Zealand’s minimum sick leave allowance is one of the lowest in the OECD. In Australia they get 10 days, in most European countries it’s even more.

Should Kiwis be entitled to more sick leave?

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.
