Center Manager from Greta Point - Active Explorers

Kia Ora Wellington whanau!

At Greta point, we are fortunate enough to have Jo who is one of our amazing team members. She looks after all of us and is really the best cook.

During the Lock down, each week Jo has been sharing with our Greta Point whanau some of the recipes she makes at the center which are firm tamariki favourites!

Attached is a message from Jo along with 4 things we can try at home for something different to eat. (my firm favourite is homemade crumpets!).

Hi Friends and Whanau,

How are you doing, going crazy like me? I can’t wait to get back to work and seeing all your lovely children.

Now down to business, I have found some new recipes, I have tried the home-made crumpets (yum), the carrot bliss balls sounded interesting plus I have included savoury muffins.

If you try these recipes please let me know how it went!

Here’s a new recipe I found quite interesting:
1 medium banana
1/2 cup rolled oats
40g choc chips

Mash banana, add oats and choc chips, roll into balls, bake 180 for

10-15 minutes.

Have a Great week.

Stay safe, Kia kaha.

Jo and the Greta Point team

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?
