Does the sound of the tsunami siren scare you?

Denise Piper Reporter from Northern News

Northland civil defence is changing the way it tests its tsunami sirens, to acknowledge some people are still unsettled after the tsunami evacuation warning on March 5. Instead of the sirens going off for 10 minutes at 10am and then 30 seconds at 10.30am, the sirens will go off once only for just two minutes, at midday on Easter Sunday, April 4. Does the sound of the tsunami siren scare you?

Have you been able to book a Covid-19 vaccine appointment?

Denise Piper Reporter from Northern News

A plan to offer Covid-19 vaccines to everyone over 50 in Northland has been called “a shambles”, as those over 75, who should have been high priority, cannot get a booking to get their dose. Last week, Northland District Health Board decided to buck Ministry of Health recommendations and open up its vaccine clinics to all over-50s. But with 73,000 Northlanders in this age group, it has been overwhelmed with demand, receiving an average of 50 calls an hour and more than 2000 emails to book an appointment. Have you had the same problems, or have you been able to book a vaccine appointment?

Te Pōkaitahi Reo

Meet Parminder Singh (Punjabi) who shares his journey with Te Whare Wānanga o Awanuiārangi:

“Studying in the Pōkaitahi Reo programme has allowed me to develop a totally beautiful and unique relationship with Māori communities. The learning has helped my work to bridge gaps between Māori and others in our multicultural communities. When I look back, I feel really proud. It’s a great feeling when I speak te reo Māori. It’s a privilege.”
