Kia Ora Koutou,


With the unprecedented events that have unfolded in Christchurch, we as a team have made the difficult decision to hold back the publishing date for Extra! The War Issue. Not because we want to shy away from this topic but because we believe this is the time to spend bringing the community together, for celebrating diversity, for supporting our young people and most importantly for extending our love and compassion to the Muslim community.

Our hearts go out to all of the schools in Christchurch, particularly to our friends at Cashmere High School, and to every single teacher who put on a brave face today to support our young people.

Extra! The War Issue will be now be published on Tuesday, April 2nd. We have chosen this date in the hope it will align with your current lesson plans. If there are any other resources we can provide or for any questions please contact our friendly team any time.

Nga Mihi,

Tricia Rowe and the team at Extra!
