CTS Whanau and Community please consider the following petition that is aiming to put government funded and cared for gardens in our low decile primary schools to ensure children not only get fed at school but also learn valuable skills surrounding growing food and proper nutrition.


The more signatures received the higher the likelihood that this request could be reviewed in parliament and with a higher number of signatures more attention will be drawn to the issue and let the government know that people care.

Over the past month, measles cases have been reported in Canterbury, the Southern District Health Board region, Nelson-Marlborough, Hamilton and Auckland.

Immunisation – the best protection against measles and it is free!

Immunisation is the best protection against measles and to be effective, people need to have two measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccinations.

Anyone who is unsure if they are fully immunised against measles can be vaccinated for free at their GP.

What can you do?

As a precautionary measure, school leaders are encouraged to confirm the immunisation status of staff and students. Anyone who is not immunised and gets exposed to a confirmed case of measles will need to stay home for at least 14 days to ensure the virus doesn’t spread.

General advice

Anyone who suspects they may have measles should avoid contact with other people, especially those who aren’t fully immunised, and should phone their GP before visiting. It is important to call first because measles is highly infectious, and people with measles can infect others in the waiting room.

Further information and advice is available from:

your local public health unit Healthline on 0800 611 116 0800 IMMUNE (0800 466 863) the Ministry of Health website.
