1.25 Under The Bridge

A new documentary, Under The Bridge, looks at the state of education through the eyes of Year 13 students, from one of the most disadvantaged schools in New Zealand - Papakura High. It shares the stories of three high school students, and their principal, as they fight for their future. And it tackles key social issues such as child poverty, housing and education. It was produced and directed by Herald journalists Mike Scott and Kirsty Johnston.

1.35 Managing Anxious Children

The start of the new school year is a time of excitement and nervous anticipation, but for some young people those nerves can bubble up into fully-fledged anxiety. A Massey University psychologist says parents have a key role in helping kids to manage anxiety. Dr Kirsty Ross is senior clinical psychologist and lecturer at Massey's Psychology Clinic.
