LETTER TO THE EDITOR
Ever tried to play a Youtube video, on a data projector, to a math class in the South Waikato schools?
You can’t for lack of adequate equipment in every school and every class room.
Along comes Andrew (AJ) Munro, new Tokoroa Police youth aid officer, with education attendance his key focus and ‘‘keeping them out of the court system’’ (SWN p8 July 5).
South Waikato District Council’s annual plan process submission had water bottling plant offering to support community development, elected body, for community outcomes, for around $2 million a year, but Council, under Mayor Sinclair and CEO Hall, brushed it off.
The 35 year consent was granted with no flow back to improve our schools and community.
‘‘AJ’’, the SW Council could do better for our children’s education.
This year’s South Waikato District Council annual plan submissions, for 2018, should state creative ways, from all concerned local residents, as to how to use our water to keep kids in schools and out of courts.
In 2018/2019 the new Mayor, CEO and MP must not brush community submissions off like the old Council did in granting the consent to Coca-cola Amatil.
