Last Meeting
Guest Speaker - Ava Szabo - Montessori School
Ava gave us a thought provoking insight into a type of school very different to the current standard system.  Certain it is that many of our students are failing under the present state system as evidenced by alarming truancy statistics and falling standards in international standardised tests.  Ava started a Montessori School in Waddington Drive/Rata Street earlier this century and it has now grown to 270 students, 160 primary, 110 secondary. Overall 17% of students are Maori, 60% European, and there are very few Pacifica, but there are now higher figures for Maori, Asian and Pacifica among the younger students, reflecting the changing demography of the area.

Jan's trip to her son's wedding 
The day I arrived in London I acted as witness to my son Jordan and Liz's wedding at the Hackney Town Hall. This was the official ceremony. Two days later we headed to Santorini in Greece for the second ceremony. 
Parting Thought 
Errol provided the parting thought at the end of the last meeting - 
"People can be divided into three groups
1)Those who make things happen
2)Those who watch things happen
3)Those who wonder what’s happening
Let’s all be number 1"
John W Newbern
