About 150 tamariki and kaiako from an East Coast kura fled for the hills today, when an earthquake triggered the school's tsunami evacuation plan; Almost all of the former domestic abuse perpetrators involved in an inquiry about family violence said hearing from people who did the same - edged them to find help to stop abusing their whanau; A Taranaki kaumauta worries that the Taranaki institute embroiled in a scandal over its Maori performing arts courses has been targeting Maori students to attract government cash; An art curator says Maori art aims to uphold aspirations and Tino Rangatiratanga or autonomy, which she says is often overlooked and doesn't always sit well with mainstream New Zealand.
