1:15 Hundreds of Schools Over Capacity

A Ministry of Education report shows hundreds of schools throughout the country are considered over capacity, or at risk of becoming over-crowded. The Education Network Annual Assessment report was released to the Labour Party under the Official Information Act.

It used 2015 and 2016 data, and showed 214 schools are over capacity and 488 are at risk. Figures show Helensville Primary School is at 135 percent over capacity, topping the list in Auckland.

Helensville Primary School Principal is Deborah Heasman.

1:25 Pasifika Youth and Sex Education

It's hard enough giving a teenager the right messages about sex but new research shows when it comes to Pasifika youths, the job is even harder. Dr Analosa Veukiso-Ulugia has been talking to Samoan high school students about where they get their sexual education, and she says they're getting serious mixed messages.

1:25 Sound Archives: Radio Ads from the swinging 60's

The 1960s brought youth and rebellion to popular culture  and the New Zealand airwaves, in the form of pirate Radio Hauraki which hit the air in 1966. But when it came to radio advertising, products aimed at women were still using the same old techniques to sell beauty: a promise that glamour and attractiveness could be bought for just the price of a bar of soap.

Today in our visit to the sound archives Sarah Johnston from Nga Taonga Sound & vision is going to play us some radio ads from the ‘swinging 60s’.
