Airport caters for kids New facilities to make life easier for parents travelling with children have just opened at Auckland airport's inter- national terminal. A parents' room air- side now offers a quiet place to change nappies or feed children. It's equipped with feeding cubicles, chang- ing tables and a micro- wave to heat baby food and bottles. There is also a new fully enclosed play area to keep energetic toddlers entertained -- and tire them out -- while waiting for a flight. On the landside of the terminal, there's a new Kids Corner playground for preschoolers on level one and the parents' room is about to be upgraded to reopen for Christmas. Pupils celebrate top efforts Proud southsiders: Back from left: Eden Tautali, Breeze Leonard, Asena Tolungamaka, Savannah Tafau-Levy, Shanika Iosefa, Candace Pasitoa, Mina Sheck and Tate Renata.

The south Auckland girls are among the Endeavour Scholars studying at St Cuthberts College. The Epsom-based girls high school joined King's School and King's Col- lege to hold a combined celebration of their highly successful joint Endeavour Scholarship programme last week. Nearly 30 St Cuth- berts girls joined a dozen boys from King's together with their proud parents for the cel- ebration. The Endeavour Schol- arship programme, which began in 2001, is specifically for students of Maori and Pasifika descent and is the biggest scheme of its kind. It provides funding for education from year 7 through to year 13 for girls and boys to enable them to develop their full potential. All go forward to ter- tiary education with many winning scholar- ships because of their achievements in aca- demic and sporting areas while at high school. Guest speaker at the event was Auckland Uni- versity sociology depart- ment head Dr Tracey McIntosh, herself Maori. Dr McIntosh spoke to the students about the vital role that education plays in changing people's lives for the bet- ter and the importance of giving back to the com- munity.
