Avondale College teacher tests positive for Covid-19

Caroline Williams Reporter from Western Leader

Kia ora neighbours. A teacher at Avondale College has tested positive for Covid-19.

The 25-year-old woman is one of seven in the community who have now tested positive for the virus (as of 1pm on Wednesday - this number is expected to grow).

Principal Lyndy Watkinson told the school community further information would be shared as it was received.

“My thoughts and best wishes are with the staff member concerned, and I thank them for acting responsibly and following all health advice,” she wrote in an email.

It is not yet clear whether the teacher was at school while infectious, however the Auckland Regional Public Health Service said all staff and students (about 2500) were considered close contacts.

Students and staff were now required to remain in self-isolation at home for 14 days.

Who’ll get my records?

Public Trust

We all have special things we want to protect and share with the people we love when we pass away. It could be your record collection, perhaps some artwork, or even that classic car you’ve spent so long restoring. If it’s important to you, put it in your will. ​

An up-to-date will is the best way to protect your legacy – and your prized possessions. ​

If you last made a will when disco was all the rage, it’s time for an update. ​

Share a recipe!

The Team from Neighbours Day Aotearoa

Kia ora Whau, Neighbours Day Aotearoa 2022 will be encouraging people to connect through kai. This could be sharing a cuppa, fresh produce, a recipe or hosting a picnic or BBQ.

We thought we would kick things off now by encouraging people to share a favourite recipe.

This could be a whānau favourite, your aunty’s special chutney, a secret (or potentially not!) curry dish, or your most-loved cake.

We’ll then share your recipe throughout the land for people to try, share, and enjoy within their communities.

Either email your recipe to kiaora@neighboursday.org.nz or submit it here - www.neighboursday.org.nz...
