South Waikato News - - Your Paper, Your Place -

It’s times like th­ese that the true mean­ing of a com­mu­nity shines through - es­pe­cially in a place like Toko­roa.

There are a few fam­i­lies go­ing through ex­cep­tion­ally tough times at the mo­ment and it is com­fort­ing to know that they will get the sup­port and guid­ance they need from friends and whanau back here in Toko­roa, even if they did move on to dif­fer­ent towns.

In other news, it is good to see our pen­sioner hous­ing unit still on track to be­ing built.

How­ever it is a huge shame that our young Wa­iariki stu­dents will not be able to par­tic­i­pate or con­trib­ute to its con­struc­tion.

It was a re­ally neat con­cept, and one that per­haps should be mooted more of­ten, to get our young peo­ple in­volved in the de­vel­op­ment of our town. Pe­haps it would in­crease their con­nec­tion and sense of re­spon­si­bil­ity to it, if they knew they had played a role in its es­tab­lish­ment.
