The New Brighton fire brigade and police also laid wreaths,’’ he said. “They all support us tremendously. We’re so proud of the community,” Mr House said. •More photos, p5 ‘Derived from Dance What’s on at the Eastside Gallery Page 8 Page 15 area.

Residents of the suburbs have delivered 3000 leaflets to surrounding areas and gathered more than 1300 signatures on a petition, calling for people to submit feedback to the schools and the Ministry of Education. The two schools will relocate to the new shared campus at QE II Park next year and have been required to develop a new zone by the secretary of education. The board of trustees from both schools opened a consultation document online at the end of March, which closed on Thursday. The document included a ‘draft zone’ which featured suburbs Burwood, Parklands, New Brighton, South Brighton and Southshore, which is supported by the MoE. The Marshland area was featured on the document as a ‘grey zone’, meaning it was an area the schools wish to have included in the zone. •Turn to page 3 BLINDS...Cleaned, Repaired & Restored...
