Celebrating 30 years of peace

For the last 30 years, Lions Clubs around the world have proudly sponsored the Lions International Peace Poster contest in local schools and youth groups, including Franklin. The theme for this year was ‘The Future of Peace’ and the Pukekohe Lions Club encouraged local schools to enter. The art contest for children encourages young people to express their visions of peace. Students aged 11, 12 or 13 on November 15 are eligible to participate. This year’s winner was Olivia Kuik from Pukekohe Christian School. Second place was Brennan Miller from Pukekohe Intermediate, and third was Anthony Cla from St Joesph’s school.

Pukekohe Lions President, Paul Burt, awards Olivia Kuik with her prize for her peace poster.

Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
