Consultation Comments get Considered

Things get SSALASTIC!

Results from the inaugural Student Services and Amenities Levy Advisory Committee (SSALAC) Consultation have been collated and are currently under review by the committee.

VUWSA President Max Hardy says the final recommendation to the Vice-Chancellor, based on student feedback, will be made in the next couple of weeks.

As reported in Salient, the SSALAC Consultation invited students to have their say in the student services levy and how it is spent. In 2010 the levy was $510 for full-time students.

More than 200 students took part in the survey, approximately one per cent of students.

Hardy says that the results were mixed.

“I can confirm that some students thought that the levy was too high, whilst other students thought the levy was necessary and good value.”

The consultation was developed following an agreement between VUWSA and the university to ensure students had a say in the levy.

Hardy says that VUWSA will ensure there is a wider annual survey from next year, with an official announcement on changes to be made soon.

The Messara Report on New Zealand Horse Racing

: My mum’s family loves a “flutter”.   A “flutter” is Kiwi slang for betting. Usually on horse racing, but we’re also partial to the odd greyhound meet or two. In April 2018, the Minister for Racing, Winston Peters, released the Messara report, calling for the clos
