Firstly, a suspicious fire at Rangeview Intermediate where three classrooms were damaged...
'The Fire Service was alerted to the fire at the Rangeview Intermediate school, on Edmonton Road in Henderson at 9.39am today.
Up to five appliances attended the scene, with 20 firefighters battling the blaze at it's height.'
Secondly in an article about an 'explosive' report by the NZQA on schools that mark too generously for internal assessments and those that mark too harshly, St Cuthberts College has been named as one of the top schools that mark too generously, while amongst a few of the top schools that mark too harshly is none other than Rutherford College!! (along with Auckland Girls Grammar, Kelston Girls College and a few others). The article hasn't been published online yet but you can find it in today's Sunday Star Times though.
