Please help us find a new home for our cats

We are a CDPS family who are needing to find a loving new home for our beloved cats we’ve had since 2 weeks old when they were rescued from a builders yard.
Yoda and Zorro are now 10yr old brothers. They are vaccinated, desexed and microchipped. They can use a cat litter when kept in for a few days but are outdoors cats. We are trying to reduce our sons allergies and our new landlord isn’t so keen on us having pets.

Please contact us if you’re interested or share with others to help us find them a great new home. Would prefer to try and keep them together if we can.

Many thanks
Sebastian

Near Misses with School Children on Train Tracks

 

There have been some near misses recently involving children crossing train tracks before and after school.  They all have one thing in common:  children aren’t expecting a “second train”.  In all of these recent near misses, bells and lights have still been operating, but because the first train has passed, students make the mistake of thinking it’s safe to cross. This can be extremely dangerous as the track crossings in areas with double tracks always have the potential for a second train to pass.  This link shows footage of one near miss:

Due to demand, Ni Hao Children's Community Charitable Trust is providing Beginners Mandarin classes (Level 1) in the Khandallah area from Term 2 onwards, on Tuesdays 3:30-4:40pm at The Village Church. This is open to children in Years 1 to 8 (however if there is large mix of ages, we will split into two classes: Years 1-4 and Years 5-8). 

 

Your child will learn Mandarin Chinese as a Foreign/Additional Conversational Language in a fun and engaging way, in a full immersion environment with their peers. Our programme is for those from non-Chinese backgrounds and Chinese heritage  families who do not use Mandarin.
The children will learn in a way that is meaningful and relevant to life (practical, not academic), with social interaction/conversation, games, raps. We do not spend time painting or making crafts as the focus is on developing oral language skills. Your children will also be introduced to some basic Chinese character writing related to the curriculum. (Please note that learning a new language once a week is a long term commitment. Our programme is planned for children to attend consecutive terms / school years).
Please email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or visit nihaocc.org.nz for more info, view the schedule and to sign up for a trial! There are also opportunities to provide lunchtime or after school classes in your child's school if the school permits and has suitable space.
