Oh baby: Mums and babies from across Auckland celebrated yet another successful year of Barnardos' Roots of Empathy programme. The classroom project fosters empathy among school children by raising social and emotional competence by providing children with a clear understanding of the needs of a baby. At the heart of the programme is an infant and parent who visit the classrooms nine times over the school year with a trained instructor who coaches students. There were 38 programmes run across Auckland schools. From near and far: A weekend course with top visiting Qigong instructors from China, drew both teachers and students from across New Zealand in November. The ancient discipline cultivates internal energy through breathing and meditation techniques and was organised by the Auckland-based Wushu Culture Association. Qigong enthusiasts meet once a month at the Royal Oak Primary school hall for practice sessions. Contact 021-560-200, www.1wushu.co.nz or email@example.com for information.

Study participants wanted The School of Population Health at the University of Auckland, supported by Parkinson's New Zea- land, is conducting a study which aims to understand how pets can help people with Parkinson's Disease. Research has shown many health benefits associated with owning a pet for people living with other illnesses, but the benefits for people with Parkinson's has not been studied. The School of Popu- lation Health are looking for 25 Auckland based people to be interviewed as part of this research. They are looking for people with Parkinson's who also have dogs and/ or cats. If the findings confirm there are real benefits this may sup- port programmes to assist people with Parkinson's to own or care for a pet or support the introduction of pets into care homes. Anyone interested in becoming involved should phone 0800 473 4636.
