Hone Harawira’s: Feed The Kids Bill was drawn from the Private Members Bill ballot last week.

Harawira said that his Education (Breakfast and Lunch Programmes in School) Amendment Bill would provide free breakfast and lunches for all children in decile 1 and 2 schools in New Zealand.

Te Wharekura O Manurewa is a Decile 1 school based in Manurewa, South Auckland, a community which has one of the highest Maori populations in the country, along with being one of the most poverty stricken regions in Aotearoa.

Maahia Nathan is the Principal of Te Wharekura O Manurewa, he discusses with Ngawai how Hones bill will impact in an area such as Manurewa and the effect it will have on tamariki and whanau in the community.

Maahia has raised all four of his children in Manurewa and has been the Tumuaki of Te Wharekura o Manurewa since its inception in 2002. He knows firsthand what it’s like to see tamariki who come to school ‘hungry’ everyday.

28TH Maori Battalion Association Closure (01 December 2012)

The 28 Maori Battalion Association is preparing to wind up, but the battalion will remain to the last man standing. Matt Te Pou, who is organising the association's final hui in Wellington on December 1 and 2, says the death on Sunday of stretcher bearer Kepa Kepa highlights how the time for a formal structure is over. He says it's a decision the veterans have made themselves.

Hemana Waaka, Ex Malayan veteran shares his view of the closure and more importantly pays homage to the soldiers that have died and the remaining (25) soldiers who are still alive.

Hemana talks with a heavy heart to Ngawai, about the decision to wind up the association. He reflects on the time he joined the army as a rangatahi and how the battalion was held in such high esteem at the time, and how he still recalls that memory vividly.

He’s saddened by the closure of the Association and knows that it will have an impact on the future of the Maori Battalion’s history in years to come.
