Mobile Playgroup for the valley By Emma McAuliffe

A new van has hit town with the purpose of helping the valley’s vulnerable children. Wainuiomata’s first mobile playgroup was launched at a special ceremony outside Awhi Mai Awhi Atu playgroup, located at Pukeatua School, with a special ribbon cutting and song from the school’s Whanau class last Friday. Kathleen Godinet-Samuelu, coordinator of Awhi Mai Awhi Atu said with the new mobile playgroup van she would be “bringing the playgroup to the people” and helping those who were not yet involved with early childhood education.

A local church will be shutting its doors ahead of a revamp which will see it stronger against earthquakes. St Patrick’s Catholic Church on the Main Road will close its doors on Sunday for three to six months while the strengthening takes place. Masses will be held at Holy Trinity Church on Wainuiomata Road in the interim. St. Patrick’s Church was built in 1954 and was opened by Archbishop Peter McKeefry. It is currently led by Father

Maylon. Pastoral parish council member Dale Imray said the Church was originally built as a church hall and was not intended to be a permanent structure. He said the Church had been looking into building a new structure for 30 to 40 years however a lack of funds prevented the plans from going any further. Dale said the Church had been looking into strengthening the Church and the Parish Hall, located at St Claudine Thevenet School since the Christchurch earthquake in

2011. The result of this would be the Church being strengthened at its current location, Dale said. This would mean the current church would have strengthened and turned around so the church would be horizontal on its current location, rather than facing the Main Road. Dale said the church also hoped by doing this room could be allowed for an extension of the Church which would give room for a community hall. “It’s not just for mass but it will be a place for the whole

Continued from page 1 The mobile playgroup van is an ex- mobile home fitted with toys for children to engage with and information packages for parents. Kathleen said the van has been funded by the Ministry of Education and Naku Enei Tamariki which is a service run through Kokiri Marae. She said the van would mainly be used to make early childhood education more accessible to families located in the Homedale area, where it had been seen the outreach was most needed. “There was a need for this. A lot of whanau are not engaging with early childhood education,” she said. Kathleen said the service would be free and would provide support to families in as many ways as would be needed. Donna Amato, Kathleen’s co-pilot, said the purpose of the mobile playgroup was to reach Wainuiomata’s most “vulnerable” children. “[The van] means we are able

to reach those who aren't able. We’re reaching those who have been hard to reach,” she said. Manager Kerry Dougall said the project was for both par-

ents and children. “It’s about getting parents engaged. Play is a child’s work. It’s how they do all their learning,” she said.

School celebrates grandparents at special day School children celebrated their grandparents at a special event held at St Claudine Thevenet School last week. The school celebrated Grandparents Day last Friday and invited grandparents to spend the day at school with their grandchildren. Grandparents Day was celebrated as a special feast day in conjunction with the Feast of Ann and Joachim, Jesus’ grandparents. This was the second time St Claudine Thevenet had celebrated Grandparents Day as a school wide event. Grandparents spent the day in the classroom with their grandchildren and taught them games and activities they played when they were in school. Older students had the chance to test their knowledge against their seniors.

Wendy Hill, grandmother to Ruby Nanai-Vermeeren, Marieta Kulatea and Layla Nanai said she had been playing Go Fish with the girls who were all in the same class. “I’ve been awarded the best nana in the world diploma,” she said. Lorraine Mangan and Gerard Mangan spent the morning teaching their granddaughter Natalya Tomkies and her friends Fiti Keil and Kasa Hai how to make pompoms. Lorraine said she had learned to make the pompoms while at school. “We all had to learn to make pompoms. I’m not sure why,” she said.

New discovery for historical society By Emma McAuliffe

The Wainuiomata Historical society made a special discovery last week following an article in the Wainuiomata News. President of the Wainuiomata Historical Society, Gavin Wallace, had restored a magneto switchboard used in the early twentieth century to house phone calls between people in Wainuiomata. He said he was almost certain the restored switchboard was the one used in Wainuiomata. It has since been confirmed by a local resident the switchboard was definitely used in Wainuiomata in the 20th century. Local woman June Wood confirmed for the society the switchboard was the one she used when she worked in Ken Ibell’s store on the Main Road when it housed the post office in the 1940s. “I just recognised it and I recognised the ringing it used to make,” she said. June said while she could not remember much about the switchboard, she did remember what it was like to grow up in Wainuiomata. “It was good living in Wainuiomata in those days,” she said.

inbrief news Petone Carnival fireworks

Pak‘nSave pie-man cleans up By Sharnahea Wilson

The Petone Winter Carnival will be taking place from noon on the Petone Esplanade this Saturday. The Hutt City Council Fireshow starts at 7.15pm. The fireworks will be starting 15 minutes earlier than previously advertised as to not hinder people from seeing the super rugby final. City Promotions Manager Brad Monaghan said for those without tickets to the Super Rugby final there were plenty of options in Petone to watch the game after the fireworks and continue the city’s Carnival atmosphere.

A Petone pie-master has yet again proved his worth after cleaning up at this year’s Bakels New Zealand Supreme Pie Awards. A panel of 21 judges spent the day on July 21 testing thousands of entries across 12 different categories. Roger Cathro, of Pak‘nSave Petone, has won awards since he first starting entering his pies into the competition in 2013. This year was no exception. Roger walked away with two first place spots – one for his famous potato top pie and the other for his steak and mushroom pie which came under the gourmet meat section. Roger, who has been a baker for 20 years, also impressed the judges with his mince and gravy recipe which took out second place.

Sleeping Well? As sleep restores our bodies and minds, it pays to ensure we get enough on a regular basis. Sleep problems can be caused by a number of things, so identifying the cause is the first step to overcoming them. • temperature of the room is too hot or too cold • too much noise around the bedroom area • some medicines can keep you awake • drinking too much coffee or tea around bedtime • pain due to a chronic illness • work or personal pressures and stress Here are some things you can do to help you sleep well: • avoid naps during the day • at night-time avoid taking medicines which can keep you awake • avoid drinks that contain caffeine at bed-time • avoid drinking large quantities of fluids before bed • before bed-time listen to soft music or read light-hearted books that can help you relax • get some exercise during the day • give yourself time in the evening to wind down before bed • being consistent about the time you go to bed and wake up, can bring about improvements in sleep patterns. Also remember, the amount of sleep needed varies from person to person, and generally our requirements decrease with age. “If these self-help suggestions do not work and you continue to have sleep problems, then it may be helpful to take medicines” says Clive, “but only for short periods of time to avoid becoming dependent.” Sleep problems also can arise through disturbed sleep caused by heavy snoring and, at the worst end of the snoring spectrum, sleep apnoea (where the snorer stops breathing for short periods). Your doctor can help diagnose sleep apnoea and suggest appropriate treatment.

ALL THE PIES: Pak ‘n Save Petone manager Ben O’Sullivan and baker Roger Cathro enjoy award-winning potato top and steak and mushroom pies. PHOTO: Sharnahea Wilson

“I spend every day trying to make the pies the best I can,” he explained. Roger entered nine categories including two new categories this year – vegetarian and chicken. The pies went through extensive examination – first they were judged cold then they were cut in half and judged again before they were cooked and judged for a third time. If they passed the first three stages they then were tasted. Roger, who can source most of his ingredients from within the Pak‘nSave store, said there were many aspects to making an award-winning pie. “You need quality ingredients and you have to make sure every step is the same.” Pak‘nSave Petone manager Ben O’Sullivan said Roger’s pies keep people coming back. “Even in the summer they are still popular.”

New transport for early childhood centre By Emma McAuliffe

A local early childhood centre has a new vehicle to take children around the valley. Yanli Kapoor, director at Jack and Jill Early Learning Centre said the centre had bought the van to make life easier for parents. She said the centre got the van last week to pick students up for day care and drop them off again as well as take the children on trips around the valley. Yanli said the accounts manager at the centre had suggested the centre got transport after seeing children enrolled but not attending day care. “We thought about it a few years ago and I’ve always wanted to do it for [the] parents [who don’t] have transport. For parents who don’t drive or don’t have transport it is a hassle to come here especially on rainy days,” she said. Yanli said the van could also be used to take the children on trips to the library and the park instead of

taking the bus as they currently did. “As long as there are two teachers able to go they can go on trips wherever they want to go,” she said.

Stop means stop completely not a running take off. Even at ‘Give Ways’ you still have to show care and attention. Any street leading on to a busy main road has stop signs.

Dear Ed, Trevor Mallard’s decision to retire after twenty years of service to the Hutt as the local MP must have been a difficult one. I would like to acknowledge Trevor’s hard work over the years.

Local butcher takes home the gold By Emma McAuliffe

A local butcher has shown who has the best pork after taking out four prizes at the 100% New Zealand Pork, Bacon and Ham Awards. Local man Rob Cameron took out two gold awards, silver and a bronze with his butchery Cameron Harrison at the event held last Tuesday night. The butchery won the gold in middle bacon for their Manuka Double Smoked, gold for their Manuka Honey Shoulder bacon, silver for their Honey Cured Black Rock boneless ham and a bronze for their Manuka Double Smoked Bone in ham. All of their meat is produced in Wainuiomata with many staff across the butcheries being locals. Rob said it was the 14th time Cameron Harrison had placed in the awards in the five years since they had begun entering. He said this was the highest

amount of placings anyone had ever received in the decade since the competition began. “No one else has done what we have done,” he said. Rob said he owed the butchery’s success to their consistency with their products and “traditional methods” used when producing the made-toorder products. “The majority of the bacon is still done the way it was done 20, 30, 40 years ago [with] less moisture and more flavour,” he said.  Cameron Harrison is located on Crofton Road, Ngaio and Upland Road, Kelburn. Cameron Harrison meats are also available at New World Thorndon and Chaffers, Moore Wilsons and Entrees Petone. THE BEST MEAT: Gavin Cameron, Rob Cameron and Adam Shackleton, with their award winning bacon and ham. PHOTO: Emma McAuliffe

What does your average day look like? “No working day is ever the same for me. Every day I am coordinating different volunteers, parents, students, uniforms or transport. A big part is working with and coordinating a number of volunteers who are passionate about sport and the young people in Wainuiomata. If I am lucky I get to make a quick stop at the Pie Shop.” What would a dream day look like for you? “The best days I have in my role have been when I

see our school and our community come together to do great things. Such as when we hosted the New Zealand League Secondary Schools Tournament, our sports days and prizegivings and various events over my 15 years at Wainuiomata High School. They are my best days because you see the power of what this community can do when it comes together. What do you like to do outside of work? “I actually spend a lot of time with my children and grandchildren playing, watch-

ing or organising sport in the community. I enjoy this time and appreciate the work that our community does to provide opportunities for my grandchildren. I am also really proud of the work I have done to set up Sport Wainuiomata, and how it has provided a vehicle for different people across our community to provide leadership.” What do you love about working in Wainuiomata? “After 15 years I have seen it all the good, bad and outstanding.

Local students selected for top teams By Emma McAuliffe

Local girls will be taking to the field to represent Wellington after being selected for top women’s teams. Wainuiomata High School students Brooke Tauaneai, Precious Auimatagi and Hope Sa'u have been selected for Wellington representative teams after a successful season of rugby. Precious and Hope were selected for the Wellington U18 Girls team and Brooke for the Wellington Pride team. This was the first time Brooke had been selected for the Wellington Pride team. She said she was happy she had made

the cut. “It feels really good,” she said. Hope said she was proud to have made the U18 rep squad. “For me it’s a huge accomplishment. We work hard for what we want,” she said. All three girls were looking forward to being in the same team as girls they usually competed against. “We’ve played with them before. It’s not so different but we’ll be friends instead of enemies. The key thing is to get along,” Brooke said. “When we play against each other again next year we’ll be like family,” Hope said.

Sports talk with Jacob Page...


Rumblings of Rio The Olympics are almost here and yet I'm struggling to get enthused. Part of that is because London four years ago was an easy sell for New Zealand which has obvious historical links. The Brazilian capital is a little harder to get motivated about. Another issue has been the bungled buildup. The Athletes Village is not up to scratch and Russia's drug issues will taint the games. The IOC's lack of action suggests television ratings and money is more highly valued than clean athletic

competition. The much bemoaned Sky TV has the coverage rights and they are advertising 12 channels of coverage. That's impressive and is far better than the single channel coverage we used to get. Realistically, New Zealand could earn as many medals as their record six gold two silver and five bronze from four years ago. Rowing will be our best bet as it usually is. I'm sure when it starts, the Olympics will be captivating but I don't expect the overall experience to be better than London.
