The van parked up at The Square in Palmerston North at lunchtime yesterday, and local reporter Samuel Kilmister from the Manawatu  Standard came down to find out what teachers were up to.  He was pretty close to deadline but made sure he got a story into the paper that afternoon, read here:

“Lisa Woodward and Elaine Savage collect signatures in support of better funding for support staff in Manawatu schools.

Manawatu schools say they may be forced to cut the working hours of support staff unless the Government provides funding to pay them higher wages.”
