Hi neighbours,

It's been one year today since New Zealand's first reported case of Covid-19.

A person in their 60s flew from Iran via Bali and touched down in Aotearoa on February 26, 2020.

Two days later, that person's test came back positive for Covid-19.

Later, a historical case emerged – a visitor to the Waikato who became ill with symptoms consistent with Covid-19 on or about February 21.

The past year has been incredible, turbulent and unprecedented.

How do you think New Zealand has done with its response to the pandemic?

What do you think we have done well as a nation to combat Covid-19?

What could we have done better to ward off the virus?

What have you learned from the pandemic?

When New Zealand’s Alert Level 4 came into effect in March 2020, schools around the country faced the challenge of a transitioning from onsite to online learning.

As students adjusted to the shift in their educational environment, many schools were ill-prepared to move to quickly to online learning. Schools such as St Peter’s in Cambridge were readily prepared for a seamless transfer between classroom and digital learning.

With each student ready to use online platforms such as Google Classroom and Hangouts, a streamlined shift was enabled as soon as the lockdown occurred.

Find out why more families are choosing St Peter’s at our Open Day on 12 March.

Hello Foodies,🙋‍♀‍
Come check me out on Sunday the 28th of Feb at the Grey Lynn’s Farmers Market, 510 Richmond Rd, Grey Lynn. I will be selling Tempeh there every Sunday. Come get your authentic Tempeh fix – lovingly made by me the Indonesian way. For those still do not know what Tempeh is, I will be doing tasting and making one of the Indonesian favourites called Tempeh Medoan (thinly sliced deep fried in crispy batter). Tempeh Mendoan originates from the city of Purwokerto in Central Java, Indonesia. Most people consider tempeh as a snack and is one of the more popular Indonesian street foods, for good reason. Looking forward to seeing you all. Take care and stay safe🙏🙌

A divorce court in China has ordered a man to pay his wife more than $10,000 as compensation for the housework she did during their five-year marriage, in what is believed to be a landmark legal first.
In the ruling, which effectively puts a monetary value on housework, the court ordered Wang's husband, identified as Chen, to pay 50,000 yuan for neglecting his share of the domestic duties.
Such a judgment was made possible through a new civil code, which came into effect at the beginning of the year. The new provisions allow for a spouse who shoulders more responsibility in caring for children or elderly relatives, or carrying out unpaid housework, to request compensation from their partner in the event of a divorce. Both parties should negotiate the amount between them but, if they fail to agree, a court can decide for them. Interested? Read more here...

I had gotten them voluntary myself off years ago to stop it spreading but it has had returned again. don't we hate them ! Love to have someone who has knowledge of getting rid of them, of course I had googled how to get rid of them but I am not in good form now. I so passionately hate them... it's at 31 Eldon Road. the owners are just housing NZ tenants not savvy in plant weeds knowledge ... arrgh. They knew but they were too lazy. If I don't get any reply here, I will take further action later this week.
