well gluey you have hit a nail close to my heart.


if the child has the correct support - i.e an aide in the class and in the playgroud then intergration can be achieved - but it is EXTREMELY diffucult and take alot of hard work from family and school , and this is with the high functioners.

for someone with a very high support needs then a specialist school is much more apropriate.

and they shouldnt focus on how "special" anyone is, all children should be having their needs met, and that includes the right to be safe in the classroom.

I'd re-introduce Christchurch-Asia-London and Christchurch-North America-London because you could pull a few passengers on that. But otherwise i'd leave Christchurch long haul to Air NZ, Singapore and Emirates.

I say Christchurch for Dunedin international connections because of runway length (if you wanted same plane service) and terminal space. Plus you might be able to skim a bit of business travel.

I'd also introduce long haul out of Wellington in an odd way - Wellington-Auckland-San Francisco-Wellington. The plane would be too heavy to do Wellington-SFO, hence the stop in Auckland, but it would be same-plane service.

The principal is more focused on how 'wonderful' it is that our children get to interact with a special needs child, than making sure he is properly supervised and the children are safe. He is not only hurting the children, but also adults. It's absolute bullshit the way my daughters confidence is falling through the floor and all the focus is being put on how 'special' he is instead of making sure he's being watched, and that she feels safe around him. I'm not going to let the bitch sweep it under the rug a second time and ruin my daughter. The grandmother who cares for the boy has been told that he NEEDS to be at a proper educational facility that can cater to his needs (at the intellectual level of an 18mnth old). It is only 7 minutes down the road. She refuses to send him there because she believes mainstreaming him will fix all his problems. And she's now using the excuse that she couldn't afford the extra petrol to get him there - EVEN THOUGH THE SCHOOL PICKS THE KIDS UP FOR FREE!!!!

So, that's my rant. I need alcohol.

And please understand, I have no grudge with the child, just the management of the whole situation....
Rougly Ramarama. It's quite the story.



And yikes. You'd hope they can sort that out. It's totally unnecessary.

Does Christchurch really have the passengers and business to justify that sort of long-haul, though? It seems to me that if you could get around the limitations of its airport, Wellington would be a more profitable place to serve.

I remember when Freedom Air was flying Palmerston North - Hamilton - Brisbane, although it was same plane service, you still had to get off in Hamilton. Seems to rather defeat the purpose to me, really. At least in terms of benefiting the passenger.

Anyhow, dinner time, messy finger food, so I'll see you folk in about 20 minutes.

I'd try to hook up with package tour groups for Christchurch. Failing that i'd probably just make it same plane via Auckland. I'd probably also do Wellington-Auckland-Asia-Europe as well.

I'd also make it so you had to go through immigration in Christchurch or Wellington so you didn't have to leave the plan in Auckland. Just enough time to load up extra passengers, some freight and obviously, the gas.

....it looks as though this transport stuff may be all that keeps the thread off life-support.

When I was doing the Palmy - Hamiltron - Brisvegas run, we went through customs in Palmy but still had to get off in Hamilton and wait in this one room to reboard. Which was really shit the time we got massively delayed, since the room just had a bunch of seats and a vending machine. Everybody got so bored.

You know, TEC --> Bad is a really shit tracklisting (and the fact it was TEC --> Help --> Bad on the night doesn't improve things much). But both songs rule so fucking much that it's a SuperWin combination ANYWAY.
