Metro N°435 is out now!

Winter 2022 / The Schools Issue

Metro N°435 is out now!

Jun 22, 2022 City Life

Inside issue 435, our winter 2022 issue: schools, bread, and wine. We present our annual schools issue, where we crunch exam results, reflect on our students’ lost year, visit Rotorua Boys High School and investigate high school art; declare what the best bread in Auckland is (and muse about it a lot); and announce the Top 50 Wines of 2022.

Elsewhere, Hayden Donnell looks into Auckland Council’s proposal to exclude central city suburbs from its increased density plan under the guise of ‘special character’; and Lana Lopesi talks to families within Auckland’s inner-city Pasifika community.

Plus: Ruahei Demant, Peter the T.Rex, Gemma New, Mayoral odds, Efeso Collins with Bob Harvey, Auckland’s Coffee Wars, Karamia Muller and Simon Denny, Oscar Kightley, Haru Sameshima, Batanai Mashingaidze and Grace Bentley-Tsibuah, Mava Moayyed, Norman Kirk, Dr Joseph Parata Hawke (MNZM), and more!
