OUR SCHOOLS By MICHELE ONG Schools in the Rodney- Hibiscus Coast area are encouraged to take advan- tage of a Heart Foundation and Foodstuffs nutrition pro- gramme initiative. The initiative aims to have more schools in the district implement new, interactive health and nutritional edu- cation courses to improve community health, and is offered through Foodstuffs Food for Thought Education Trust joint effort with Heart Foundation's Heart Start pro- gramme. Schools Kaipara Flats, KingsWay and Silverdale have enrolled in the free pro- gramme. Nutritionists will visit schools to teach children the importance of a balanced diet, how to read and under- stand nutritional information panels, and how to prepare healthy meals. Students will also get to visit the supermarket to pick ingredients to prepare their own healthy lunch. It's our aim to see every primary school in the country sign up for these programmes designed specifically for the New Zealand school curricu- lum,'' Foodstuffs managing director Steven Anderson says. Contact Stephanie.feld firstname.lastname@example.org to sign your school up for the programme. Mahurangi College year 10 students got a feel of what tertiary studies are like at Massey University's Tertiary Taster Day. The students, joined by Rangitoto College pupils, stepped into a public relations role when they were asked to protect the repu- tation of their school in a fic- titious exam cheating scan- dal. They had to create a video for YouTube and TV in response to the negative pub- licity. Staff from the university's school of communication, journalism and marketing mentored the students in the PR challenge. Other activities included solving a murder mystery challenge, playing with robotics and studying geckos. Each day ended with a mock capping ceremony. Other colleges who have taken part include Orewa, Whangaparaoa, Long Bay and Glenfield. A mother of two wants people to spend the holidays reflecting on road safety for schoolchildren. Most civilised countries have a speed limit outside their schools, as the safety for children is paramount,'' Christchurch's Lucinda Reese says. Here though it is accepted practice to have rural schools with a 100kmh open road speed limit outside their gates, and there is no law for drivers to slow down,'' she says. She is campaigning to have speeds outside schools reduced to to 40kmh. A petition asking for change in the law has been referred to the Transport and Industrial Relations Select Committee for consideration.
