WHITIANGA WEATHER

On Wednesday 29 May, the limelight will shine on New Zealand’s education staffing crisis. In the largest industrial action ever taken in our country, teachers from all schools across New Zealand will strike en masse.

Last Saturday’s Whitianga Half Marathon was promoted as being a “fast and flat scenic loop.” The event certainly lived up to the expectations of the record number of entrants who took part and was exceeded even further by being held in perfect weather conditions. 

On Saturday last week, more than 50 people joined Coromandel Outdoor Language Centre (COLC) owners, Kim and Robyn Lawry, for a BBQ to celebrate the many years the well-known Whitianga language school was in operation. The school was established by a previous owner in approximately 1993.

A coincidence, a planetary spectacle and a piece of history will merge together when a transit of Mercury is viewed in Cooks Beach at sunrise on 12 November.  The viewing will be open to the public, with telescopes placed at the Banks Street Reserve and astronomy experts on hand to explain to those present what is happening.
