The Warehouse Wellington Zoofari welcomes Maraeroa School
and Pukeatua School
133 students from Maraeroa
School in Porirua and 42 from Pukeatua School in Lower Hutt
will visit Wellington Zoo on Tuesday 2 September as part of
the Warehouse Wellington Zoofari programme.
Zoofari is a partnership between Wellington Zoo and The
Warehouse that helps local low-decile schools experience
conservation-based learning programmes at the Zoo.
Warehouse’s Wellington region stores raised over $25,000
in December to assist with the costs of learning sessions at
Wellington Zoo. Schools from around the Wellington region
were invited to apply, and 16 schools will visit the Zoo as
part of the 2014 programme.

Election Day: Make Sure You're A Part Of It!
Saturday 20 September, is election day, and New Zealanders’ last chance to have a say on who leads the country for the next three years.
“The people and parties we elect tomorrow will be making the decisions that affect us, our families and our communities,” says Robert Peden, Chief Electoral Officer. “It doesn’t get much more important than that, and we need all New Zealanders to use their voice and vote.”
Voting places will be open from 9.00am until 7.00pm on election day. The busiest time at voting places is usually 9.00am - 11.00am.
“Take your EasyVote card with you when you go to vote, as it will make voting faster and easier, and vote close to home if you can. But don’t worry if you forget your card, or didn’t receive one, because as long as you are enrolled to vote, your voice will be heard,” says Mr Peden. More>>
