Keep Firework Sales

Petition to keep firework sales in New Zealand For kiwis, Guy Fawkes has become an occasion signalling the coming of summer and a chance for family and friends to get together and take in the excitement of spectacular fireworks. The question is WHY take this away?

New Plymouth Girls' High School Vape Policy

Dear Stella Bond (Acting Principal), Currently, at New Plymouth Girls' High School there is no policy against students vaping on school grounds. This is an issue because vaping with high levels of nicotine has been proven to negatively affect the human body and can lead to addiction. Young people are at risk of being peer pressured by others to participate in this and as their brains are not yet fully developed they are unlikely to consider the longterm effects of vaping.

Bring Missy Elliot to Friday Jams Live NZ 2020

It's worth a shot so I'll give it a go. With three successful Friday Jams Live concerts so far, every year I hope this Queen comes but nothing so far. I've been a diehard fan since she started, would love to see her grace our New Zealand stage to be the final showstopper for the evening at Friday Jams Live 2020.

Remove our waka MAMARU from the Mamaru Clinic title

Mamaru Clinic has had our WAKA name embedded in their title for years, and for years they have FAILED to appropriately serve and treat the descendants of MAMARU WAKA. We deserve better service and a much better level of care for a clinic carrying a name with so much MANA, and yet fail to uphold the MANA of its descendants...  and for this THEY DO NOT DESERVE TO HAVE OUR WAKA NAME IN THEIR TITLE - I think it's time to make a stand and protest to have the name changed and or REMOVE OUR WAKA MAMARU
