Although the health risk is small, the Ministry of Health recommends that you fush a large glass of water from your drinking-water tap each morning before use to remove any metals that may have dissolved from the plumbing fttings. We recommend this simple precaution for all households, including those on public and private water supplies.

A Matrix Security patrol officer was conducting his checks when he came upon three youth attempting to light fires at a Glenfield school campus in the late hours of Friday night. He immediately called for back up and alerted the police to the situation. The fires were being lit in the toilet block and on the campus field. One of the youth ran off but the Matrix Security officer managed to apprehend two of the offenders. The police arrived a while later and spoke with the youth to gain further understanding of the situation. They were then arrested and taken in for further questioning. There was no damage to the campus. 4245048AM YOUTHS' ATTEMPT TO LIGHT FIRES EXTINGUISHED Tough crowd: Chief Justice Dame Sian Elias found herself answering some curly questions from Diocesan students. She visited the school for the launch of New Zealand's first school-based Centre for Ethics. The pupils had questions such as ''Have you done anything wrong as a judge?'' and 'Is being ethical about your opinion or the rules?'' Dame Sian is a Diocesan old girl and has two granddaughters at the school. The centre will mean ethics teaching will become a part of existing curriculum subjects and there will be guest speakers from ethics- related fields, such as academics, scientists and journalists. Cleaning up: A group of 18 volunteers spent a Saturday afternoon clearing rocks covered with oysters from the West Tamaki Rd beach. Auckland Council representatives and residents took part and care was exercised to protect marine life such as mud crabs. Global vision: Students from ACG Parnell College attended a World Vision Global Leadership Conference and met Sam Johnson, who rallied the Student Volunteer Army in Christchurch.

Happy days: Sydney and Stanley Green, both aged 94, live in the BUPA retirement village in Meadowbank and recently celebrated their 70th anniversary. Their wedding notice published in 1942, read: ''Although Miss Sydney Hodgson had only seven hours in which to prepare for her wedding to Second-Lieutenant Max Green at the Karori Presbyterian Church on Monday evening, the impromptu ceremony was carried out with all the traditional details, even to charmingly arranged flowers and a wedding cake.'' The couple moved from Wellington in 1982 and lived in St Heliers. Daughter Sue says her parents are still on to it and celebrated with a big party with former colleagues, relatives and friends from Australia and New Zealand. Welcome to our Milestones feature.
