i'm really sad about whats happening to our community....we are trying to rebuild but being in a white zone is stoping our remedial work to keep Mount Pleasant Kindy open.
Tonight Mount Pleasant Kindergarten, which is a long way back form any cliffs, held a meeting to announce Kidsfirst decision to close its temporary centre. Kidsfirst presented options to close and split children between their other centers in Sumner, Redcliffs, Bromley and Opawa. Strong feeling from the majority of parents was that they would like to continue to have a temporary facility. Whilst structurally safe the Church requires some bracing work, cordoning of vicarage and to make safe the separate bell tower. Apparently this work can not be done as the Church is in the white zone. It was agreed that a second meeting would take place before the 15th of July. Giving Kidsfirst an opportunity to consult with the Ministry of Education, who were not present at tonights meeting, on options to re-open Mount Pleasant Kindergarten in a short/medium location. Plus to start the longer term process of securing a site to rebuild.

Has everyone actually watched the whole interview before commenting on here? He explained things over and over again and his focus was on PRODUCTIVITY. His example was that of a lawyer who took some time off to have children. How can that lawyer possibly come straight back into the profession and have the same productivity rate? They would need to build up a new client base, probably re-learn how to do some things because beauracratic policy change things very quickly and so their productivity would be lower. So should that lawyer, man or woman, expect the same pay as someone who started at the same time as them but didnt take that time off? Of course they shouldn't because that person has continued their professional growth in that time and the other person hasn't. The interviewer actually offended me with her continued questioning on the same topic that he had already answered. If anyone should resign from their job it should be her. She didnt go into that interview with the purpose of getting his side of the story, she went in to try and get him to dig a bigger hole. That is poor journalism and she should resign!
