Circulating in Patea, Waverley, Waitotara and surrounding districts

Ngati Ruanui purchasing Patea Medical Centre It’ll be business as usual for Patea patients with the added benefit of regular on-site doctors as Ngati Ruanui purchases the Patea Medical centre. Ngati Ruanui Holdings Limited will take over on August 1 2018. The former owners, Patea and District Community Medical Trust 2000 (Patea Medical Trust), have struggled to locate a permanent doctor for the rural community since the last doctor left on Friday June 30, 2017. Ngati Ruanui Holdings chairwoman Debbie Ngarewa-Packer says this is part of an overall economic investment strategy. “We’re investing in our people and the Patea community. This acquisition will provide health certainty and wellbeing for all residents of Patea.” A mixture of Ngati Ruanui doctors and locums will begin working in Patea, ensuring there is a permanent team of doctors providing back up and support. “It also builds on our existing strategy of having a healthy productive, innovative, export-orientated regional economy that will support better paying jobs and better quality of life,” she says. “We provide a technologically advanced STEAM programme to youth, are establishing an innovative berry food business to provide highly sort-after skills and employment and have a virtual health model partnership with Dr Lance O’Sullivan (MaiHealth).” The MaiHealth virtual doctor network was implemented in 2017, when Patea residents needed access to care. The structure has worked for patients with straightforward medical needs, organising same day scripts through a simple online system. Patients needing more thorough medical attention have been travelling as far as Hawera and Whanganui for treatment when a doctor has not been available. MaiHealth will continue to stand as a separate service. “We’re looking forward to providing a range of services in South Taranaki; bringing the services to the rural areas, where they’re needed,” Ngarewa-Packer says. Ngati Ruanui believes it is critical to invest in social and economic wellbeing through our people, says Haimona Maruera, Te Runanga o Ngati Ruanui Trust. “I’m proud to be born and raised in Patea, it’s a community of stamina, resilience and huge talent so it’s exciting to be at this stage.” Patea Medical Trust chair Brett Honeyfield believes the move is the best possible outcome for all parties. “Now that we’ve found someone who wants to run a medical practice in Patea, we are confident this is going to be to the benefit of the community here,” Honeyfield says. The original Trust formed to purchase the practice from a private GP in 1991. The practice was purchased using community donations. The Trust spent the next 9 years working voluntarily to keep doctors in the town and in 2000 a new, charitable, Trust was formed and continued that work. In recent years the challenge to find and keep a GP in Patea has proven extremely difficult. Honeyfield considers that the supervision requirements for overseas qualified practitioners exclude many good doctors, and that the lack of back-up and collegial support available to a sole-charge doctor in a small town to be off-putting to potential candidates. This is where Ngati Ruanui taking over is of great benefit as they have the ability to provide that supervision and support. “We all share strong community objectives. Ngati Ruanui want to be here helping the people of Patea and finding people wanting to do that without a sole focus on financial gain has always been the biggest challenge.”

TSB Community Trust boundary change to go ahead

After a long process - over seven years – the wait is finally over with TSB Community Trust getting the go ahead to consider funding applications from eligible community organisations in Patea, Waverley and surrounding area. Approval to amend the Deeds of both TSB Community Trust and Whanganui Community Foundation was given by the Hon Dr David Clark on 13 July 2018, as requested by the entities. The Deed changes mean the TSB Community Trust’s southern boundary will be aligned to the South Taranaki District Council Boundary, effective from 19 July 2018. The communities' requests to be included in the Trust’s area date back ten years. Then in 2011 a group of Patea community representatives attended the Trust's annual Public Meeting at Waitara, to formally request the Trust consider a change to the boundary. The Trust then followed a formal consultation process to gauge the views of the community. After considering all submissions the Trust’s final decision was to support a change. Approval from the Minister of Finance was initially requested in 2014. A legislation change process was required and with changes in the government it has taken several years to gain approval for the request. The Trust now looks forward to engaging with the local communities. Trust staff will be holding workshops and visiting community organisations within the new area, from 8 August onwards. “Community organisations in the area are welcome to apply once the changes come into effect on 19 July” says Maria Ramsay, TSB Community Trust Chief Executive. “It is important to be aware that the Trust will follow the same process as for all community organisations within its wider boundary. Community groups intending to apply should first read through the Trust’s Community Funding Guidelines available on the Trust’s website. Once all necessary information is provided groups can usually expect to hear back within 12 weeks.” To find out more check the TSB Community Trust website and Facebook page https://www. Every part of New Zealand is covered by a Community Trust. There are 12 Community Trusts in total in New Zealand and each has a legislatively mandated area that they can fund within.

A Christian Word

There is always this awareness to all of us that we are not in control of this earth, that there must be something else that’s controlling our lives. You’re right! … God Almighty, creator of heaven and earth, the Almighty who knows each of us individually. This, you may think, is far too big an undertaking by anyone and you’re right, but it just proves that a super natural power is in control of us all. So why can you not see God? Well actually you can, if you would just take the time to look and ask the hard questions. If you’re sincere with yourself and begin to seek God He will be found. To see God today you have to take a step back from rush and pressure, time and money! When you look about you at everything you see the colours, shapes, smells, the seasons, the sun (why hasn’t that exploded?), the moon, the birth of a baby, laughter, tears, anger, love … feelings (monkeys have none of these senses!). There is far too obviously the hand of someone so extraordinarily brilliant far, far above what we could imagine, that has put all this in place and keeps the earth on its orbit through space, year after year. A tad closer to the sun and we’re all fried or a tad away and we all freeze, just all demonstrates that, yes, there must be a creator! Every other ‘notion’ is really just our frail attempts of trying to be in control and have knowledge that only God has. So why does God allow all these wars and suffering and fame etc you may well think? Well, the answer is very simple, HE DOES NOT! Is it not God’s will for us to be in the state we’re in now. Our thinking we know better than God has resulted in all this chaos! If we had continued on in His plan for us none of this would have happened! You need to realise that God has given you your own sovereignty, which means you decide whether God is real and whether you want to obey Him. God cannot make you love Him … that’s your choice and responsibility. Ask, seek and knock and the door will be opened for you to walk into God’s truths! Come Lord Jesus. Ted Reeves

This annual event is held in July with more than 100 competitors and 200 sheep dogs taking part to show off their skills at the Egmont A&P Showgrounds. The event attracts a broad audience each year and is a must for famers, vets, animal trainers and psychologists. But the sport also expanded its audience over the past few years with more and more passionate dog lovers competing in the Trial. The entrants and their dogs must run three sheep within 10 minutes through seven obstacles on the showground floor. But it’s not all about time! Flair, obedience and skill of both, the trainer and the dogs are judged, with points deducted for biting the sheep or causing them to do a full 360 degree turn. The Taranaki Indoor Sheep Dog Trial held their first event in July 2009 with the main aim to encourage more young people to the sport of sheepdog trialling. From there on the event grew continuously until this year when the event registered a total of 220 dogs for the competition from all over the North Island. For the Community: The club started off from scratch with no funds, but has grown enormously with the ongoing support of Hawera and Taranaki wide businesses, and the Club is giving back to the community who support the event so generously each year. Since 2014 the club has supported each alternative year the Taranaki Rescue Helicopter and St John Hawera, though which a total of $12,000 has been donated to these two vital services. The Club would like to give a huge big thank you to our Sponsors: Mighty Mix Dog Food

Patea Historical Society AGM President's Report Tuesday 24 July 2018 Ladies and Gentlemen I have much pleasure in presenting the 50th annual Presidents Report of the Patea Historical Society. First of all, I’d like to acknowledge the dedicated members of our Committee. It was 50 years since Patea Historical Society began in October of last year. And it’s heartening to see that the same vision of ‘preserving our past’ is been retained by our team today. Jim Baker, Bettie Howarth, Roy Hotter, Michael Parsons, Clive Robinson, Dave Crompton, Harvey Gibbs Rob Groat, & myself. And we have a brand new member who joined us earlier this year – Joe Bourke, who has proved his worth already And of course our patron; Howard Anderson. We had a special afternoon tea at Ross and Raewyn Symes house at Manutahi on the 25 October last year. The very first meeting of our Society was held in their home on the exact same day in October 1967, when the then owner, Etta Hamilton was a member of the founding committee. Bettie & Joan Robinson were there that day and remembered it clearly, it was so nice to recreate that occasion, which we ended with a whisky toast to the future. We have put together a slide show of photos from the last 50 years of Patea Historical activities which will be showing while we have supper. The current membership of the society stands at 80 paid members including 7 complementaries. Laurie Gibbs has retired from his long accounting career in Patea and Hughson & Ass have taken over the office at the back of our building. Mark Hughson has agreed to be our honorary auditor from now on. We will really miss Laurie, he has been a strong and consistent supporter of Patea for decades, we marked his farewell with a morning tea at Red Rock Café, Patea on 29 October 2017. The Patea Historical Society continues to support Aotea Utanganui, our Museum with two appointed members on the trust, Dave Crompton and Michelle Dwyer. As well as the usual annual operational funding of $3,000, the society will continue to assist with operational funding and joint projects where we can. In August of last year we had a book launch at the Museum for Larraine Sole’s book ‘The Early Hotels of Old Patea’. A fascinating book about the 10 Hotels that were on Patea’s landscape over the years. Patea Historical funded the printing of this book and are being reimbursed as copies sell. They are for sale at the Museum. My book about the History of 125 years of Hurleyville was launched a few weeks later, it was mostly self-funded, and copies are still selling from time to time. August 2017 was also the month that Rob and Ivan launched the Land Wars App for the North Taranaki Region. Jim and I attended that event. On the 8 December we had Mick Parson’s old wagon in the Patea Christmas Parade, with me, Mick Parsons and Rob Groat in vintage costume on it. Unfortunately, the steel rim rolled off one of the wheels, the wheel held together, but we had to drag it to the side of Egmont St, other than that it was lots of fun. For the third year running David Scouller has bought a bus load of people from the Whanganui Summer Programme to us, to show around for the day on 15 January. This year we were based around Waverley. Larraine Sole did a historic street walk with them up and down the main street of Waverley. Then we went to the site of the Battle of Moturoa on Braemore Road, it will be 150 years since this Battle on 7 Nov this year. Then Ursula Cunningham met us at Waverley Beach, where she told us of the golden days of summer camping holidays in the 1950’s. We ended the day at Bill Hone’s Woolshed Museum, with a nice cup of tea. Next January David is bringing another busload and we are focusing on Hawera History. Ivan Bruce is going to lead a tour of Turuturu mokai and Waihi Redoubts. On 6 February we had a stall at Pae Pae in the Park selling our historic books, Legacy of Turi, my Hurleyville one, Jim’s Whenuakura one, etc and talking to people who wanted a chat about local history. Later in February the cataloguing of the Patea Harbour Board and Patea County Council records was completed at Puke Ariki. Kelvin Day approached us last year to ask if we could fund this. So together with The Lysaght Watt Trust we funded a graduate student; Sarah Dawe, to work over the summer at Puke Ariki on the hundreds of boxes involved…opening these valuable records up, for researchers and historian’s in the future. On 25 February Jim organised a BBQ lunch gathering of Taranaki Historic and Heritage groups at his home ‘Louisedale’. There were about 40 of us there, along with our local Mayor Ross Dunlop, very important to have council representation, they have control over a lot of our important heritage. A great opportunity to see what everyone is up too, and make sure we all work together where we can. We continue to work with the Council and their architects on the strengthening of the Hunter Shaw Building, this is progressing, slowly. Another thing we did in February was to photograph the Waitotara School records with the new document camera that Hawera Genealogy have purchased. Waitotara was one of the few Schools in the province that did not have duplicate copies of their precious records. So they agreed to let Jill and I spend two days there photographing them. On 10 April in conjunction with Hawera Genealogy we hosted David Dell – Sheet music Archivist and historian. I wasn’t expecting it to be such an interesting night, but he was fascinating, with some amazing stories of locally composed sheet music that could have been lost forever had David not been there to save it. Ivan Bruce of Heritage Taranaki marked Archaeology week in May with 3 different events. On the 5th he hosted a field trip to Puketarata Pa and the surrounding area. Really informative day, with over 60 people in attendance. Being 150 years ago this year that the Land Wars began in Taranaki, we marked Turuturu Mokai battle on 12 July with a piece about it on our FB page. So far that article has had almost 9000 views and 29 shares. We will mark the other major battles in the same way – important to get the information out there. As most of you will know PHS have funded, in partnership with The National Library of NZ, the digitalisation of The Patea Mail onto the Papers Past website from 1875-1941. To date this has cost Patea Historical $30,000. Patea Historical Society pays half and the National Library of NZ pays the other $30,000, to process & upload this valuable resource. It would not be possible without the bequeaths that have been left to our Society over the years, and carefully invested. Anyone, anywhere in the World can now search on key words or dates from days gone by & uncover some amazing information from the pages of The Patea Mail. And this investment has reaped rewards for us, as the National Library have nominated the next instalments of The Patea Mail to be microfilmed free of charge, and then eventually digitalized

and uploaded to Papers Past. As they say, you have to spend it to make it! We are now working with Graeme Shaw at the National Library to make this happen. The Paper stopped production in 1941 due to the War, started again in 1946, but only 13 editions were produced, then was started again in 1952 by Archie Clarkson, and ran continuously up to the present day. They will be microfilming until 1975. We are in the process of getting the old Patea Primary School bell restored. Hooper’s Engineering have polished it up beautifully and Mike Cole is making a timber structure for it. It will then be hung in the Patea Area School Hall. We have continued our work on old headstones at the Patea Cemetery. Harv and I spent an afternoon recently spraying the moss and lichen covered monuments in the old section with ‘wet & forget’. We will do another few hours in the next couple of months. Tracy Hinton has been employed by the Council, on a short-term contract, to upgrade records on the ‘Cemetery Search’ link on their website. I helped her with some new info, and some they had got wrong. She has photographed all the headstones and it is hoped that these photos will one day be linked to the relevant grave, although a lot of them will have to be re-photographed after their clean-up. It is also hoped that the Council will take drone footage of the South Taranaki Cemeteries and make it searchable like ‘google earth’. This is being done is other places already and works very well. So much information can be gleaned from these ancient epitaphs, so important to record and preserve them. The headstone of Hunter Shaw has been found by Bronwyn Wattrus from the Museum, in Waikaraka Cemetery, North Shore, Auckland. He is buried there with his brother John Henry who died in 1918. Hunter Shaw was a major benefactor of Patea, The Hunter Shaw Building, and a large wing at the Hospital in particular, so we are hoping to get the headstone restored in the near future, unfortunately it is broken in two, we feel the town owes him this. He was one of 9 children, none of whom married, so there are no descendants. The Patea Historical Society facebook page that was started 3 years ago, is going incredibly well. We wanted to get local photos, stories & documents out to the world of social media, and so far 2200 people have ‘liked’ and are following our Page, 500 more than at our last AGM. We have posted hundreds of photos, uncovered some amazing stories from our past, & have a constant stream of comments, requests & new information about our local history. This is great publicity and promotion for the district and PHS. We still write articles for the Patea Waverley Press most months too, print is a bit more forever than FB! A FB story we wrote about in February was about the Manawapou Inn built in Sept 1867 by Mr Sweeney, down by the Manutahi Beach and burnt down a year later when it was being run by Charles Hirtzel, had 8335 views, it led me to find Charles and Emma Hirtzel’s Grt Grt Grandson David, who hadn’t known Charles ran the Inn for a few months. He sent me some fantastic photos of them. Last month we launched our brand-new Website. My cousin Dee McCrea from Kiwa Design played a huge part in the design and construction process. She spent hours on it with me and sponsored us to the tune of at least $900. We are very grateful to her for this generous contribution, and she continues to help me when I get stuck loading data on to it. We also have a new, beautifully designed logo for Patea Historical, this has also been printed on to 2 boards and will be installed as signage on our Freezing Works Display building. Another cousin of mine -Daniel Lehrke of DL Design, a graphic designer fresh back from 3 years in London, designed this for us for a bottle of Whisky. Once again, so pleased to have people willing to do so much for so little. Another major project we are working on is the publication of Ian Church’s last book about the Pakakohi Maori Prisoner’s, sent to Otago in 1869 until 1872. A publisher had agreed before he died 5 years ago, to print it for him. When I rung Ian’s sister; Pat Greer, in Dunedin, last year to ask permission to reprint his book ‘Heartland of Aotea’ she told me that they had changed a lot of the content, so it was now only a ¼ of his original work and could not give a date when Angela nee Baker (daughter of founding member of PHS; Livingston Baker) with Bettie Howarth, our 'treasure of a Treasurer'. She has been on the committee of PHS for 50 years and Treasurer for about 45 years.

August 2018 - 9 they would actually print it. So I consulted with Kelvin Day (long-time friend of Ian’s) and we agreed to get it printed in its original form. They have handed the rites over to us, and Kelvin has done hours of work proof reading and adding macrons to the Maori words etc. Kelvin has recommended Puke Ariki designer Caitlin Finnerty, to design the layout of the book, I met with them last week and she has provided a very reasonable quote. Ian had paid for rites to most of the photos to go in it. And Kelvin is helping us source the rest, and he has a friend who is a map drawer, who will hopefully provide us with the many maps Ian wanted included to bring the story to life. This will be the first actually book printed about this unfortunate time in history, there have been academic papers and Treaty settlement articles, but it will be good to get this story out to the general public. I have also been consulting with Darren Ngawera, who has provided a list of the full names of the men that were sent, Ian had only their surnames.

Christmas was a date we had pencilled in for its release, but good things take time and we may need to run into the new year. It’s been a full year of activities for the Patea Historical Society, and we have lots more planned for the year to follow. Thanks for being a part of it. Jacq Dwyer President of Patea Historical Society

Patea Bowling Club Early history. On the 9th of June, 1896, a meeting was held in the Borough Council Office for the purpose of forming a Bowling Club. There was an attendance of 40 and the meeting decided to form the Patea Bowling Club and elected the following officers: President, Mr J Gibson; Vice-President Mr J Paterson; Secretary, Mr J Power; Treasurer, Mr H E Deane; Committee, Messrs W C Symes, J Richards, J Shield, W Gibbons and H E Adams. The subscription was fixed at £1 with an entry fee of £1 and country members at half these rates. Mr J Gibson generously donated £40 for the purchase of a section for the green and the issue of debentured to the extent of £150 beating interest at 5% enabling the work of preparing and laying down of the green to be proceeded with. Play was commenced on the green in 1897, and a formal opening took place on 3rd October, 1898, on which day a half holiday was declared to celebrate the event, and this coincided with the completion of the original pavilion at a cost of just under £60. Part of this building remains today having been added to over the years. In 1905 the ladies were admitted to membership and apparently joined with the men in general play, but later had their own club days. Over the next three decades the club had many ups and down with fluctuating membership, but since the late thirties a more constant figure has been maintained and the finances steadily improved. The Golden Jubilee celebrated in 1946 proved a boost to the club and the Diamond Jubilee celebrated in 1956. The most important feature of that Jubilee Year was the completion and opening of a new pavilion (combined with the Women’s Club). During the intervening years from 1956 the club has gone from strength to strength and several worthwhile objectives have been achieved. The Pavilion has become totally debt free; membership has considerably increased and maintained; finances have been improved and consolidated; green keeping activities have become highly mechanised and green surrounds ands club amenities have been continually improved and added to. The most important factor for this Jubilee Year has been the addition of an amenities block to the pavilion. This major addition has been completed free of debt. 1992. New clubrooms were completed. 2018. The club has around 60 members, most of whom are social members. The green is kept to a high standard yearround, thanks to the many hours put in by our Greenkeeper. The club would like to welcome anyone wanting to visit or become a member. When visiting you only need to be signed in by a club member, and if you would like to join just fill in a member nomination form. Annual membership is $50, and Gold Card holders are $35. Any new members would boost the number of players in our bowls, darts and pool competitions. Facilities available at our club: eftpos, 3 competition dart boards, pool table, full size snooker table, non and low alcohol drinks, well stocked bar, free tea, coffee and chilled bottled water. Friday evenings from 6pm = free Jukebox and snacks while they last. Open day Sunday 16 September from 1.30pm. Bowling season: September – April The club is open 5pm-midnight Wednesdays and Fridays at 7 Meredith Street, Patea, Any enquiries to the President, J G Bourke, phone work 273 8414, home 273 8415.

Taranaki DHB and NPDC collaborate to improve community health. Taranaki DHB’s Public Health Unit (PHU) will work closely with the New Plymouth District Council (NPDC) over the next few months to improve the health of the community, starting with more drinking water fountains in public areas. A recent PHU study, conducted by Health Science graduate Tayla Hesseltine, showed a considerable lack of accessible free water in parks, playgrounds and major walkways in the region. Only one in five (19.3%) public playgrounds in Taranaki has a drinking water fountain. Medical Officer of Health Dr Jonathan Jarman believes the installation of more public water fountains could help with a

number of child health issues that Taranaki faces, including childhood obesity and dental decay. “Taranaki is the second most affected region in New Zealand for childhood obesity – almost 20 per cent, or 4,500 children. Nationally, an estimated 99,000 children are affected. We also have a large number of young children under the age of five who need general anaesthetic for tooth extractions due to tooth decay, and this is costing our DHB over $200,000 per year,” he says. The Ministry of Health recommends that plain water should be the beverage of choice for children and adults. Dr Jarman says: “If we had more drinking water fountains where children could access free plain water it may stop them from turning to cheap sugary drinks when they are being active outside.” NPDC Infrastructure Manager, David Langford, says the study highlights the need for NPDC and PHU to work together for improved community health. “As part of our regular operations NPDC ensures that all current drinking water fountains are checked, cleaned and functioning properly,” he says. The study also discussed that climate change would likely bring hotter summers. New Zealand had the hottest summer on record over 2017 and 2018. Dr Jarman says: “The installation of more drinking water fountains in public areas makes a lot of sense as summer temperatures increase. It is much better if children can have free water from a tap rather than carrying around plastic bottles full of sugar.” Mr Langford agrees and says NPDC is now working with the PHU to identify the best locations for new drinking water fountains to be installed. The first two are planned to be installed at Ngamotu Domain and Kawaroa Playground ahead of this summer. “Over time NPDC’s Parks department will work on installing more drinking water fountains at a cost of about $6,500 each. The goal is to work with the PHU to ensure the healthy choice is the easy choice. In the longer term NPDC will look at a joint project with the Public Health Unit asking children what they want and where they would like drinking water fountains,” he says.

Waste not citrus

It's that time of the year again when the citrus trees are full of fruit. The big question is, what to do with it all? For sour varieties of citrus, cordial may be the way to go. A mix of fruit juice, sugar, and water, there are lots of ways to go about making the concentrate that allow you to alter the ratio of sugar to suit your taste and the bitterness of the juice being used. Those who have more fruit than they need can of course donate it to others. Maureen writes, "One of our local community centres has a food cart outside it. Anyone can drop off food such as grapefruit, lemons, baking, leftovers from local cafés etc and anyone can pick them up. When people leave something they put a post on the Neighbourly community FB page. Such an unselfish, helpful idea." Some oil raggers like to barter their home grown fruit and vegetables with other like-minded individuals. How about this for an idea? A money-free home-growers market where backyard grown produce is bagged in 2.50 trade dollars, 5 trade dollars and 10 trade dollars sized bags, and traded for other produce of an equivalent value. Best of all, surplus produce is exchanged for produce that is needed and no money changes hands - just bags of home grown goodies. Here are some tips for those wanting to grow their own citrus. Now is the time to plant. They grow best in a warm, sunny spot sheltered from strong winds. They don't like wet feet, so make sure the soil is free draining - or if you have a heavier soil, then plant on a raised mound or on a hillside. Citrus like to be fed and love seaweed tonic. Make your own by placing washed seaweed in a sugar sack, which you then submerge in a barrel of water. After a few weeks you will be able to start drawing off seaweed soup concentrate. Dilute about five parts water to one part concentrate when watering the citrus. They also like potash, which for most oily raggers is provided from their wood burning fire. If the leaves of your citrus are yellowing then its most likely due to be due to a nutrient deficiency. To share your tips – or ask your questions - please drop us a note via or write to Living off the Smell of an Oily Rag, PO Box 984, Whangarei.

@ Your LibraryPlus Schools holidays, Reading BINGO and lots more has been happening in the LibraryPlus this month. In Patea the monthly craft morning is continuing to grow with a crowd of 28 turning up regularly. There has also been a focus on social inclusion within the library as we have been working with Te Mahana Rest home to provide a welcoming and friendly space for their residents to visit, which includes a weekly book group for people with dementia. Storytime has started back up with the beginning of the new school term. Patea LibraryPlus also worked with Whenuakura school on a 3D printing project just before the holidays where the students learnt about the Moa and 3D Printed replica bones. Waverley LibraryPlus has had a visit by acclaimed historical novelist Jenny Pattrick who was visiting four of the seven South Taranaki LibraryPlus centres - sharing how she researched and wrote some of her latest novels. Despite a huge following, it's fairly rare for Jenny to tour, so this is quite a coup for us; we're delighted our readers were able to experience Jenny's magic in person. Waverley Library has also great success in their newly started weekly board games which allows people of all ages to disconnect from the technological world around us and connect with others in the community. Storytime has also started back up with the new school term with the introduction to sensory tiles.

Eruption (2010) Daily Screening in Media Theatre from 1 August 2018 - 28 February 2019 Auckland faces a massive natural disaster in TV3’s major new telefeature, Eruption, as the volcanic hot spot beneath the city begins to stir. In Graeme Tetley’s tense screenplay, a new source of volcanic activity is detected beneath the Waitemata Harbour by the brilliant, maverick scientist Clive de Roo (played by Mark Mitchinson). Eruption’s scenario is based upon scientific reasoning that at any time, a new volcano could be created from the hot spot that sits 100km beneath Auckland. While today’s scientists don’t expect that an eruption will happen on their watch, the fact is Auckland’s volcanic field is relatively young, with the last eruption producing the iconic Rangitoto only 600 years ago. Eruption asks how Aucklanders would react to the threat of such a massive natural disaster. 50 Years of Television (2016) Daily Screening in the Education Room from August - November 2018 This is the Prime TV series celebrating 50 years of New Zealand television: from an opening night puppet show in Auckland in 1960, through to Outrageous Fortune five decades later. It traverses the medium's development and its major turning points (including the rise of programmemaking and news, networking, colour and the arrival of TV3, Prime, NZ on Air, Sky and Māori Television) and interviews many of the major players.


The Big Bang - Exhibition Opening Join us for the opening of The Big Bang exhibition about the hypothetical eruption of Mt. Taranaki. 10.30am Thursday 30 August 2018 150th Anniversary of Turuturu Mokai, 3-7 September 2018 Audio Recordings Aotea Utanganui plans to play six audio recordings from Ngā Taonga Sound & Vision and Radio NZ during the commemoration week (3-7 September) about the events of Turuturu Mokai. These recordings are from a range of speakers whom have recollected about the battle of Turuturu Mokai in 1868, and the Radio NZ story of Kimble Bent. These can be heard at the Museum during the commemoration week. Mobile Unit. John Houston, Hāwera history, 1946 Local history of Hāwera read by John Houston. Story of Turuturu Mokai Pa, local Māori history and early conflict over land. Mobile Unit. Taranaki Māori 1946 Hāwera historian John Houston continues with his stories of the history of iwi Māori of Taranaki and the fighting of the 1860s. Mobile Unit. Patea history 1946 Harry Locker and Matthew Carey (both 85), describe events in the Pātea area from the 1860s, including the first schools, Titokowaru, von Tempsky and his death, Turuturu Mokai Pa, details of military actions, and many details of life after the land wars. Mobile Unit. Forest Rangers 1947 Sam Temple, born 1868, of Kihikihi, tells of his father's activities with the Forest Rangers under Major Jackson and von Tempsky. Today In New Zealand History, September 7th 1868 Today In New Zealand History, September 7th. The instalment for September 7th focuses on Titokowaru’s campaign during the New Zealand land wars, recorded in the 1950’s. Pākehā Māori: the story of Kimble Bent It’s reasonably common knowledge that large numbers of Māori fought on the side of the government during the New Zealand Wars. We even have a name for them, kūpapa Māori. A less well-known story is the handful of Europeans who went in the other direction - Pākehā soldiers who deserted the British army and joined the cause of Māori “rebels”. Most of these people are poorly documented, but there is one exception: Kimble Bent. New Zealand Wars (1998) - Taranaki Prophets (Episode 4) We’re screening the New Zealand Wars Documentary in commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the Turuturu Mokai battle as part of the South Taranaki Land Wars of 18601872. Discover why it was necessary for ancestral Māori to fight, and why after 150 years, their descendants endure. The New Zealand Wars series takes a new look at the history of Māori vs. Pākehā armed conflict, and focuses on Riwha Tītokowaru and the battle of Turuturu Mokai in 1868. This series is written and presented by the noted New Zealand historian James Belich, and will screen daily in the education room at Aotea Utanganui Museum of South Taranaki. Taranaki Prophets (Episode 4, 50mins), 3-7 September 2018, 10am - 4pm Daily The Art of Peace - Public Programme for Children & Young People This event if designed for children & young people to respond to the commemorations by creating new artworks based upon the events of Turuturu Mokai in 1868. These artworks focused around peace will be displayed at the Museum during the commemoration week (3-7 September) for the general public to view. Saturday 1 September 2018, 10am-4pm

Whenuakura School - ‘Growing Personal Excellence’ The new term is well underway and the progress already made by our learners in the first half of the year has been impressive. The ‘C’ in our CORE school values is ‘collaboration’ and the high quality teaching and learning is the result of a community effort. Thank you to our staff, BOT, whanau, and wider community for your support. We are pleased that once again this term, we are able to offer small class sizes and welcome Amanda McAree back to Whenuakura School. A warm Whenuakura welcome also to our newest learners – Quinten Smith and Hannah Crawford. We have a busy term planned so keep updated with our latest news on our Facebook page. Our inquiry this term is ‘Animal Planet’ with our pet day coming up and some EOTC events planned as part of this learning. We also welcome ERO to our school in week three and and look forward showcasing our school and commitment to teaching and learning.

Learning Expoganza

Learners confidently showcased our ‘Quest for Change’ inquiry at the end of last term with a fantastic attendance of parents/caregivers and families. They explained how innovation is the opportunity for change, that anyone can innovate, and that we have to “imagine the future, and fill in the gaps!” Our school was a hive of activity with challenges in our outdoor classroom, robotics workshops, and STEAM challenges. Some may claim that the adults were even more competitive than the kids! Exploration and innovation was the theme. A highlight of our expo, were the displays made by our learners which documented their inquiries and their vision. They displayed their prototypes, and thought about marketing material and potential of their ‘innovations’. We are sure that lots of them would give Mark Zuckerberg some competition! Thank you to Hellers Sausages for sponsoring our sausage sizzle and South Taranaki Libraries for the use of your fantastic technology.


Throughout New Zealand, Sir Peter Blake Leadership Awards are presented to those that exemplify outstanding leadership qualities such as integrity, a determination to succeed and inspire those around them and also be a good team builder, leader and member. We were very proud of one of our very own leaders – Ellah Van Delden, who was presented the award by David Maha of Westpac at the end of term.

Engaged Learners

The end of term two was busy. With Puanga in the sky, we decided to travel to Wanganui to visit the Observatory and we also had a fun pyjama day to celebrate our term. Check out some of our photos below:

The Department of Conservation is responsible for managing New Zealand’s whitebait fisheries. Observe the regulations and conserve our species. The regulations summarised here are for the whole of New Zealand except the West Coast of the South Island. The whitebait season is open between 15 August and 30 November (inclusive) in all areas of New Zealand except the West Coast of the South Island and the Chatham Islands. The season runs between 1 December to the last day of February (inclusive) in the Chatham Islands. The taking of whitebait at all other times is prohibited. Fishing is only permitted between 5:00 am and 8:00 pm or between 6:00 am and 9:00 pm when New Zealand Daylight Saving is being observed. Fishing gear ‘Fishing gear’ includes all nets, screens, lines or other devices that are used, or are capable of being used, to take whitebait. ‘Drag net’ means any net or any rope, material or device used in conjunction with the net that is: - weighted on the bottom edge, and - operated by surrounding any whitebait and being drawn through any water. Whitebait nets must have a mouth no larger than 4.5 m (measured around the inside of the net frame) and framing material no wider than 120 mm. Drag nets must be no taller than 1 m in height and be flat when laid on a flat surface. Both whitebait nets and dragnets must be no more than 3.5 m in length. No fishing gear shall: - exceed more than one-third of the water channel width - be used in conjunction with another person’s gear to exceed more than one-third of the channel width - exceed 6 m in total length -No person shall set or use more than one whitebait net at a time. Every person who sets or uses a whitebait net must remain within 10 m of the net. Fishing gear must be removed from the water at the end of fishing or the end of the day, whichever is earlier. No person shall possess whitebait in conjunction with any whitebait net that is not permitted to be used under the whitebait regulations, whether or not that net is being used for fishing at the time.

Opens 30 August 2018

Unlawfully taken fish must be immediately returned to the waters from which they were obtained, taking care to ensure their survival. No person shall discard or dump on shore any fish taken when fishing for whitebait. No person shall fish for whitebait within 20 m of any tide gate, floodgate, confluence or culvert, or fish from any bridge, or from any vessel. Nothing in these regulations permits any person fishing for whitebait to interfere with, alter or modify the natural bed or banks of any river, stream, estuary or channel.

Get Your Garden Ready For Spring

An exhibition exploring a hypothetical eruption of Mt. Taranaki

There's plenty to do in the vege garden before spring, including planning what you want to plant for the coming season, preparing the soil and planting some cold hardy vegetables. To get your soil into top condition ready for spring, some preparation is needed. Blend in compost and sheep manure in preparation for the upcoming growing season. If you have planted cover crops such as mustard and lupin seed now is the time to dig them in. These plants will rot down in a matter of weeks, adding nutrients and organic matter to the soil. Broad beans will need to be staked or supported as they grow. Early-season lettuces and other salad crops can be planted under poly tunnels or protective cloches. Slugs and snails find the seedlings very tasty, so use pest control products to stop them demolishing your plants. Now’s the time begin sprouting seed potatoes. Most potato crops take about three months to mature, so need to be in the ground in September for a Christmas treat. Use certified seed potatoes because they are chosen to thrive in the home garden and guaranteed to be free of viruses and pests that affect potatoes. This is the time sow beans (dwarf, runner and butter, under glass or outside in frost-free areas only), broccoli, cabbages, carrots, cauliflowers, celery, chervil, lettuces, leeks, mesclun, mizuna, radishes, rocket, spinach, silverbeet. It’s also time to plant beetroot, broccoli, cabbages, cauliflowers, celery, kale, mizuna, onion, silverbeet, spinach, coriander, parsley, rosemary, sage, thyme. Use slug & snail control to control these pests. Aphids and whitefly may start to reappear in warmer areas. If infestations are small blast off with a hose or soapy water. If infestations are large, select a suitable spray from your garden centre. It’s also the time to harvest brussels sprouts, broccoli, cabbages, cauliflower, celery, kale, leeks, winter lettuces, mizuna, parsnips, rocket, silverbeet, spinach.
