Quotes

"The Edge was stoked to be part of yet another successful world record attempt – it’s the second in Tauranga that we’ve been part of in the past 12 months" said Jordan Milligan, MC and The Edge promo coordinator. "Our listeners and The Edge team had an absolute blast!"
"One of our responsibilities, and privileges, as a university is to share knowledge and expertise with the community. Each year we have a range of interesting speakers and topics up for discussion, and this year will certainly be no different."
"It [the research] will help us really understand what is different about the preschooler population when we're talking about this issue."
"You've got to find an expert in the language to be able to teach it. It's not something you can learn over YouTube," he said. "It's got to be meaningful to the students, that they're actually going to use it in a real context - so have conversations."
