About the North Island Grid Upgrade Project The North Island Grid Upgrade Project is one of the largest electricity transmission projects to be undertaken in New Zealand since 1960. The project is separated into three parts: the overhead transmission line, substations, and underground cables. The project is critical to ensuring security of supply to the upper North Island into the future. The 11km underground cables run from a new substation in Brownhill Road, Whitford, to the existing Pakuranga substation site on Ti Rakau Drive.

CLOWNING AROUND FOR QUAKE KIDS Awards open for teachers A teacher is one of the greatest influences on a student s learning and performance and here s your chance to show your appreciation. Nominations have opened for the 2011-2012 round of the National Excellence in Teaching and Leadership Awards, with the theme Teachers Count. Awards foundation chairman Terry O Con- nell says the programme is a chance to acknowl- edge a teacher s efforts. We ve long recognised that outside the family home, a teacher is the greatest influence on a student s learning and performance. Mr O Connell urges school and early child- hood communities to nominate a teacher or leader from their school or early childhood centre for an ASG Excellence in Teaching Award or a Cognition Excellence in Leadership Award. All teachers and leaders nominated receive a Certificate of Nomination. Twenty area representatives will be selected to receive Regional Awards for Excellence in Teaching and Leadership. From these, 10 teachers will go on to receive national awards at their schools or centres later in the year. National awardees will receive professional development grants from a pool totalling $35,000. Two $5000 and three $2500 grants will each be made for excellence in teaching and for excellence in leadership. Nominations are open until August 31.
