Kiri Allan has hit out at the Department of Conservation’s “tokenistic” use of Te Reo Māori.

It comes after a screenshot of an internal email was shared on social media from a DoC manager who said they were passing on "feedback this week from the minister's office about inclusion of te reo Māori in the material that we send over", which Allan called an "incorrect articulation".

Boys are falling behind in school-leaving and university entrance exams.

A report in the Sydney Morning Herald has revealed a gender gap in exam pass rates, with boys slipping behind girls.

The Wiggles are coming back to New Zealand.

The original lineup is hosting two shows for those over 15 in Auckland and Christchurch.
