WI branch going strong at 90

On Monday this week, Uruwhenua Country Women’s Institute (CWI) members gathered at the historic Motupipi Hall to celebrate the 90th birthday of this highly esteemed organisation and retrace some of its colourful history and good works.

A history that spans 90 years of tragedy and joy.

Already established since 1921 elsewhere in New Zealand, CWI was finally introduced to Golden Bay in 1934. The organisation aimed to provide country women with support and education, encouraging home crafts and cultural work such as music, drama, and arts and crafts. Women began actively participating in rural events like A&P Shows, community and goodwill services, and learning about local body and global politics.

In 1929, the Murchison earthquake preceded a decade of worldwide depression ending with war. Huge political, social, and economic change brought unemployment and hardship. Correspondingly, however, there were also positive changes: improved transport services, bridges, and roads; electricity; the

Transport Licensing Act; the first Dairy Board; Wattie’s Canneries; NZ Forest Products; milk in schools; state housing; and a social security tax. Locally, surviving industries included the paint works, the tramway, steamer services, and the iron works.

Initially, Golden Bay’s CWI focused on building cottage hospitals, but they soon included other community schemes such as fundraising for a Tākaka restroom. By 1936, the Depression had inspired more social initiatives, including mystery parcels; a drama festival and spring flower show; concerts; square dancing; and competitions to make “something new from something old”.

During the 1940s, minutes of meetings reflected the tragedy of local men wounded, imprisoned, or killed at war. Women “coped”, while institute members also contributed to the war effort themselves by sending parcels overseas and fundraising for survival kits and the Red Cross. Petrol shortages and rationing made running farms and families difficult for women, until rehabilitation schemes after the war offered farm assistance. Electricity became more available, particularly after 1944, when

the Cobb Scheme started supplying power. CWI members, supported by each other, held “welcome home socials” for returning soldiers, and further afield supported war orphans and refugees.

1950s meetings were more positive but not without patriotism for “King and Country”, complete with the national anthem.

At Monday’s celebration, Elva Harwood, Uruwhenua member for over 50 years, and Kay Hart, member for 60 years and past national president, reminisced with amusing anecdotes.

Kay explained the formalities of those earlier meetings including aspirations and sympathies, then a theme for the day and a motto were introduced. One such theme was about “embarrassing moments”, which for one woman involved her rush to the toilet, backing hurriedly into the long drop to deposit herself straight onto a man’s lap.

Executive meetings over the Hill were so well organised that they would have washing on the line, lunches sorted, and tea already cooked by the time they left with...

Further rates hike likely

Tasman District ratepayers, already looking at a 9.6 per cent increase in their rates bill for the coming year, may have to swallow an additional hike which could see that figure climb to nearly 13 percent.

In a statement released last Sunday evening, Tasman District Council’s chief financial officer (CFO) Mike Drummond advised that new information may affect decision-making within the Council's 2024-2034 Long Term Plan, and ratepayers should be aware of the development. "We are advising ratepayers, and especially those who have made submissions on its Long-Term Plan/Tasman’s 10-Year Plan, that due to circumstances largely outside of its control the proposed rates revenue increase of 9.6 per cent may increase by between two and three per cent."

With the public consultation closed, and three LTP hearings scheduled for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday this week – in Richmond, Tākaka and Motueka respectively – TDC’s last-minute announcement gave those who registered to speak to their submissions very little time to amend their feedback.

Mike attempted to place the unwelcome news in context, as he explained the timing of the update. "While still below the national average of proposed rate revenue increases, we considered it was important to inform residents as soon as we were made aware of the increased cost pressures and the possible impact on rates.”

According to TDC, the most significant items are:

Increased costs of funding water services maintenance ($385,000)

• Increased costs associated with the Waimea Community Dam ($500,000)

• Downturn in forecasted revenue from building consent activity ($1.1million)

• Increased insurance costs ($350,000) A materially higher 2023/24 year end deficit particularly in building control and transport spending, due to storm costs (no figure provided).

A key question is why the divergence came to light so late in the LTP process. Responding to an inquiry from The GB Weekly on Tuesday, TDC communications officer Tim O’Connell stated: “Budgets for most areas were set in October 2023. Some of the information only became available or was confirmed after the Consultation Document was set in March this year – such as the scale of downturn regarding the building regulatory area and the additional costs for the Waimea Community Dam.

“The increase in funding water service...

Maggie wows library audience

Tākaka Memorial Library is hosting local musicians every Saturday from 11am-12pm during May, to celebrate New Zealand Music Month.

First up, last Saturday, was 13-year-old Maggie Quinn, who wowed her audience as she played guitar and sang a wide genre of songs. Proving her extensive vocal range, Maggie sang songs from jazz singer Amy Winehouse to country folk songs. She also confidently spieled off anecdotes accompanying each song, such as the one she dedicated to her Malshi cross dog, Baby, “whose birthday is today, she’s three”. Singing lines such as, “I am nothing without you”, “I don’t know what I’d do without you”, and “I’ll never let you down”, Maggie proved the depth of feeling she has for her pet.

Comments from audience members included, “[Her voice] is so mature”, and “Wow, the confidence”, both of which were evidenced throughout Maggie’s performance. She gave credit to her teacher, Levity Beet, who she explained was in Auckland at the New Zealand Children’s Music Awards.

Incidentally, at the awards, Levity and Judi Cranston won Best Children’s Song in the preschool category for their song “Funny Little Bunny”. A group of Levity’s students will perform at the library next Saturday morning.

Thanking her audience, Maggie wound up her set after 45 minutes of shared mutual pleasure. “I had a really lovely time, the atmosphere was great, and I had a blast,” she beamed.

Story telling at its finest

Since that anonymous Neanderthal took a charred stick to the cave wall to record the tale of a hunt-stories, the telling and re-telling of such stories has run like a golden thread connecting all of humanity. There is not one culture known that does not use storytelling – it underpins everything we do: entertainment education, healing, commerce and activism. Our belief systems are stories. The stories that every culture has left behind are all the distilled essence of human experience, so story-telling could easily be called the language of humanity.

And speaking that language, Aralyn Doiron, story teller, will be the featured guest at this month’s edition of Golden Bay Live Poet’s Society’s gathering.

Weaving words with delicate skill into spellbinding tapestries, Aralyn captures the hearts and minds of both old and young. She knows how to look at things back to front, upside down and right way up! That way, she says she’s got everything covered and can spread her net of words wide and on both sides of the boat, so to speak.

“This is story telling at its finest", notes Golden Bay Live Poets spokesman Mark Raffills. “A pin dropping on the floor would shatter the silence with a thunderous roar; such is the ability of Aralyn to transport the listener to other places and times, oblivious to the reality of the present. We are going to be in for a treat, that’s for sure.”

Come to hear Aralyn Doiron telling timeless tales and autobiographical stories, live at the Mussel Inn, Thursday 16 May at 7.30pm. Cost $5.

Firefighters rise to the challenge

Golden Bay’s brigades “smoked it” at last weekend’s National Firefighter Challenge in Wellington.

Racing against the Royal New Zealand Air Force, the Tākaka 39ers took out top spot in the Team Relay with a time of 1 minute 17.95 seconds (1:17.95). The 39ers were also placed third in the Aggregate Team competition, while members Kyle Gardiner and Sam Goffriller, aka The Martian Legends, finished in third position in the Open Tandem Team event with a time of 1:21.65.

Pete Taylor and Sheree Peters of Collingwood Volunteer Fire Brigade also took part and, with Hannah Sproston (Tākaka Volunteer Fire Brigade), were placed in the top eight relay teams in the country. Pete and Sheree also took third place in the Open Co-ed Tandem Team competition with a time 2:00.60.

Not only was Sam Goffriller (Upper Tākaka Volunteer Fire Brigade) part of the 39ers winning team but he also joined the Firefighter Challenge elite, becoming only the 60th New Zealander to be awarded a Lion’s Den status after registering a time of 1:37.05 in his individual run, wearing full breathing apparatus.

Speaking to The GB Weekly on Monday, Sam said he’d been training “pretty hard” along with the rest of the team. “It’s been full on.” Regarding his elite-level individual performance, he explained that everything had to go perfectly ”It’s one run; you only get one chance; you can’t make even one little mistake.”

Given Golden Bay’s success at the

...maintenance was discovered while staff were reviewing budgets, indicating the council had under-budgeted for the maintenance it would need to do next year in the Long Term Plan.”

Other items that have only recently been fully accounted for include the eBus roll-out overspend for which TDC is on the hook for $180,000, a decline in revenue from commercial forestry operations, and a blow-out of the roading budget, put down to the cost of repairs following flood and storm damage over the last few years.

TDC admits that taking “a very lean approach” to its budgets and financial strategy, meant its ability to absorb these unforeseen cost increases and income reductions was severely limited and, consequently, it has become necessary to revisit the discussion about service provision and rates increases.

Tim explained that steps are being taken to avoid similar surprises in the future. “Going forward, we are looking at where there may be opportunities to identify risks earlier as well as the continual monitoring of our financial performance.”

This implies that expenditure and financial risks may not have been adequately assessed and/or monitored. Asked by The GB Weekly whether she still has confidence in the CFO and his team to carry out financial reporting to the required standard, TDC CEO Leonie Rae stated she had “full confidence in Mike and his team”.

Although no final decisions regarding the LTP budget have yet been made by Council, that will change as a result of its deliberations later this month, when the rates increase will be set, according to Tim. “Despite these increased costs, our final rates rise will be guided by the outcome of hearings and deliberations which are now underway. We will work to ensure that our final rates increase will strike the right balance in providing the necessary services to Tasman as affordably as possible.”

On 27 June, Council is due to adopt the LTP before it becomes effective on 1 July.

Costs but no dam benefits

LETTERS

Conservation economics

The headline in last week's Newsline is "Waimea Community Dam proves its worth".

The article stated, "the residents of Richmond, Mapua, Ruby Bay, Brightwater, Hope and Wakefield can be assured that significant water restrictions are a thing of the past".

What about the residents of Golden Bay?

Will any elected councillor, mayor or representative of the engineering team, or any expert on dams, please tell me of any worth this dam has to Golden Bay?

The uncapped dam fees being charged to the ratepayers of Golden Bay are totally unjustified and certainly not a fair sharing of TDC assets and debt.

Hands off our beaches

Reg Turner

Thanks Pauline for a great letter (GBW 3/5) saying what a lot of us were thinking re the damaged sign posts at Patons Rock. Forest & Bird said the sign for important shorebird nesting had been put away until next year's breeding season, so therefore can anyone explain why we are not allowed to walk our dogs 365 days of the year past the reserve entrance at Parapara beach where oystercatchers breed? I was photographed and reported to TDC who phoned me twice threatening prosecution. This was before the sign was put up in that area and it still says no dogs all year round.

SIPO numbers stable

Jennie Morris

As a member of the Ornithological Society of New Zealand (Birds NZ) a lot of my time is spent monitoring shorebirds and seabirds on the Golden Bay coastline. Species, numbers and breeding success.

It was encouraging to visit the Collingwood roost on the weekend and see that South Island pied oystercatcher numbers there are steady, with counts of 350, 450 and 400 in February, March and May this year.

Cynthia McConville "Kiwi" could be a clucking chook

I have lived next door to Andrew Kelsall for 50 years and I have never heard a kiwi.

I do hear weka echoing around the hills now that they are back after their long and welcome absence.

Last weekend, friends who are active in conservation groups stayed at my place and thought they heard a kiwi in the evening but it was one of my very free range chooks.

Maybe that’s what Andrew has been hearing, his free range chooks, and mistaking them for kiwi.

If an experienced ear can be fooled, an amateur ear could easily make a mistake.

I wholeheartedly support the efforts of Pest Free Onetahua. There seems to be so much money spent on dumb stuff these days it's good to see it spent on something for the betterment of future generations.

Cathy Heatherbell Rocking the beach – and the boat

The rocks blocking access to be beach in Collingwood were apparently paid for by visitors from America who spend a couple of months a year in their beachfront holiday home.

My question is this: Who are these entitled people who think that they have a right to come here for part of the summer, and throw their weight around by arbitrarily deciding that they can block access to a public beach, demand that dogs playing on the beach must not bark at any time when on said beach with their owners, and complain about music being played at a wedding at a recognised accommodation facility that has been here long before they chose to buy and build?

It seems to many of us that this couple don't want to fit in with the local community, but want instead to dominate.

You are welcome to live here in peace, but don't continue to try to push us around.

After several readings of Andrew Kelsall’s letter of last week (GBW 3/5), I find myself summarising it thus: Andrew doesn’t much like conservationists. Which is fine. However, his suspicions about the funding for Pest Free Onetahua (PFO) being at the expense of “community” funds can be interrogated. PFO provided me with the following information on their funding sources: Predator Free 2050 Ltd, from Jobs for Nature funding, Rata Foundation, Lotteries, World Wildlife Fund, Tasman District Council.

So most of the funding was from conservation–dedicated sources, and nearly all of it came from outside the district. PFO has brought around $1.5 million into the local economy. Even if you see no value in protecting native species and wild places, it’s undeniable that this kind of work has economic benefits for our area. And Andrew; compared to 200 years ago, kiwi are now “common” nowhere in this country.

Repair Cafés on local menu

Is your vacuum cleaner on the blink? Or does your favourite bag need a new zip? Imagine a world where you could extend the lifespan of your belongings whilst gaining the skills to look after them yourself.

The good news is that Repair Cafés are on the horizon here in the Bay – however, they do require local support.

Repair Cafés are pop-up events where community members gather to assist one another to fix household items and treasures under the guidance of experts. They are part of an international organisation run by volunteers, first started in the Netherlands in 2009 by environmental journalist Martine Postma. There are now 2,500 Repair Cafés globally, with the first NZ café held in Diamond Harbour in 2013.

Local CJ Webster is working on behalf of Tasman District Council (TDC) to establish a group of volunteers to assist with repairs, management, and running of Repair Cafés in Mohua Golden Bay. The goal is to run three or four cafés in various locations around the Bay, “making use of community halls and having some fun”, says CJ. TDC will supply funding to pay for overheads such as advertising or hall hire.

CJ tells The GB Weekly that, “cafés are a way to shift our culture from a ‘throw away’ to a ‘fix it’ society. Cafés will [mean] less to landfill, save money, support local skill sets, and build local

community. It is about fixing simple things that normally would not get fixed.”

The purpose of joining an international movement is to drive advocacy for the “right to repair”, which puts pressure back on manufacturers to make products that can be more readily fixed. For example, not building appliances with tamper-proof screws. Details of the cafés and types of mending/skillsets available will be determined by the management team and advertised ahead of time. Attendees can expect to complete a form about their item for repair (not including personal information). This form will assist with “right to repair” advocacy internationally. They will then be able to consult with an expert who will assess and fix on the spot or advise who in the Bay (business or individual) can fix it if the repair is more complex. They may have the opportunity to learn how to fix the item themselves, for future reference. CJ says, “We don’t fix everything, but we can help people to understand what is required to fix, and who to go to.”

GOLDEN BAY ORGANICS

CJ is holding a volunteer recruitment meeting on 21 May, from 12-1pm at the Tākaka TDC offices. She is interested to hear from “anybody who has time and energy to be part of the organising management group for the café, or repairers that have not yet volunteered”.

Elva related how in one play, Kay sat fully pregnant in a bird’s nest, and then, accompanied by appropriate chicken sound effects, rose to reveal an egg.

“We have had a lot of fun over the years,” said Kay. Uruwhenua president Nancy Ward read excerpts from the 1945 annual meeting at the end of the war, that included a “sumptuous sit-down afternoon tea, entertainment, hand bells rung, a short sketch, a mystery parcel, a bean and a flower competition, and a Lucky cup winner”.

Although April was a quieter month for Golden Bay High School students and staff, with two weeks being taken up by holidays, a lot of activities took place, nevertheless.

A group of students painted the Chorus boxes with designs from Level 1 Art, the student executive ran an Easter egg hunt, and the preparations began for this year's Lip Sync which will take place in June.

Of course the big event in April is the Anzac commemorations. GBHS took part in the Tākaka service and also held an assembly of its own to mark the event. Five year 13 students – Hazel Molloy, Lewis Langford, Oliver Booth, Isobelle Johnson and Stevie Ward – took part in the formal event as speakers, flag-bearers and as part of the re-enactment. The school would like to thank RSA’s Golden Bay president Noel Baigent and bugler Willa Visker for being part of the school assembly.

The school held its first mufti day of the year at the end of the term to raise funds for classmate Jack Holland who is beginning his cancer treatment. The day was themed “Dress as a Golden Bay person” and there were lots of good costumes and plenty of gumboots spotted on the day, which proved very successful, raising $2,400 in donations.

Despite April being quieter, there were a number of sporting events during the month including the Tasman Secondary Schools Lawn Bowls tournament in which Gus McLean was placed first in the individual event; New Zealand Orienteering Champs where Lani Murray took second place in the long distance event; and the South Island Secondary Schools’ Athletics and Adventure Racing Championships.

The Golden Bay High School house murals, showcasing the artistic painting talents of students, with designs incorporating the values of the school, will be displayed on the Art Vault Gallery fence in Commercial Street. Each year the school is divided into four "houses" that compete against each other in events such as the swimming sports and athletics. Pictured above is the winning banner by Red House with two students who helped paint it, Summer Dixon and Amalie HarrisMacready. Each mural will be displayed separately. The Art Department and GBHS is very appreciative of the gallery's support of young and emerging artists.

Students celebrate Korean culture

Last Thursday, Year 7 and 8 students at Golden Bay High School (GBHS) enjoyed experiencing the traditional costuming, dancing, drumming, sushi making, and calligraphy of Korean culture.

Funded by the Asia New Zealand Foundation’s Asia Initiative Fund, the presenters were all from the Korean Association of Nelson Tasman. Jeong-ae Seo together with her daughter Minjin (Penny) Kim instructed the students in kimbap, Korean sushi making. Her other daughter Doyeon (Jenny) Kim ran a history, culture, and clothing class. Having initially immigrated to Christchurch in 1997, the family looked after Korean exchange students for 20 years before relocating to Nelson.

Sushi sessions were popular, culminating in students eating their self-rolled sushi filled with rice, carrots, pickles, cucumber, and stir-fried beef. “Sushi making was my favourite,” said Blue Thompson.

English teacher and co-ordinator of the event, Venini Tindling, assisted presenters in the sushi classroom, handing out sushi sheets and paper plates filled with ingredients, then food handling gloves.

Colourful costumes resulted in swirling rainbows as students learned a dance whilst wearing formal wedding and other traditional outfits.

“Hanbok is the name of the wedding outfits,” explained Year 8 student Talia Feaver. “The red one’s a woman’s wedding dress and that’s a man’s,” she said, pointing out a blue robe.

“Every New Year day and Thanksgiving Day... more people are wearing these,” explained Jenny, who went on to teach the bowing protocol used to show respect when greeting elders.

Drumming and banging of gongs engaged the interest of many, who eagerly volunteered to have a go as Mary Bronsteter relayed the history and origins of Korean music. Mary was born and raised in South Korea by her Korean mother and American Polish father.

“I liked doing the Korean drums and we learned how to play them, it was really fun,” said Hendrix Housley.

Students learned to write their names in the traditional Korean calligraphy class, which was a favourite of Evangeline Ricketts, who said she loved calligraphy. Justin Kim and Ilyoing Jung, president and previous president of the Korean Association of Nelson Tasman respectively, were the instructors.

Venini explained that the aim of the day was to foster cultural appreciation, which, by all accounts, was certainly achieved.

Making a difference in our community

Sunday 12 May is International Nurses Day, the anniversary of Florence Nightengale’s birth and an opportunity for us to recognise the incredible work nurses do to support our community.

Newly qualified District Nurse and mum of three Sandy Reid has always loved caring for people. She trained as a beauty therapist before moving into the health sector, spending time as a healthcare assistant and in administrative roles at dental and medical centres.

Eventually it was her colleagues at a Nelson medical practice who encouraged her to consider moving from reception to nursing. At age 50, Sandy took the leap and enrolled at NMIT to study nursing full time.

“I’ve always wanted to do nursing; I just didn’t think I was clever enough. I thought it was going to be way too hard, I didn’t do very well at school and then I had kids, then you make all the other excuses. It dawned on me that life is not going to wait for me, so I decided ‘let’s do it’ and I don’t regret it.” It’s something she still pinches herself about.

“I passed my finals in December. It’s still feels like ‘how did I do it?’ but if I can do it, anyone can do it, you just have to be passionate about it. I cannot believe I’m actually getting paid to do something that I love.”

As a District Nurse, Sandy visits people at home in the Nelson community and provides personalised care tailored to each patient. Her work is varied and can include administering medication and supporting patients with complex conditions. She particularly enjoys specialist wound care.

“I love skin, I think that comes from my beauty therapy. It’s such a large organ of the body. It’s pretty awesome to be able to support people as they heal.”

Complex palliative care is also a side of her role that Sandy finds rewarding.

“When I was doing my training in Motueka, I got a lot out of providing palliative care. My role was to set up anything the patient might need –syringe drivers, airbeds or supporting with medication. To know that you were making patients as comfortable as possible was the nicest feeling you could possibly get. Why didn’t I do this earlier on in my life?” she laughs, “I wish I had!”

Sandy started her community work in the Nayland area as part of a team of more than 20 District Nurses who support the Nelson community from Hira to Hope. District nursing is where Sandy sees her future.

“It’s a privilege to be able to go into someone’s home and see how they’re living. It gives you a holistic approach to nursing, you can see how they’re living and you can provide the appropriate support. Recently after I helped a patient, she gave me the

biggest hug and I thought, this is what makes it”.

It’s also working as part of a close-knit team that Sandy really enjoys.

“I’ve got a great team right beside me; if I need anything I can just pick up my phone and someone will be there. It’s a close-knit group between Wakefield, Richmond and Motueka. There’s no nastiness, we all just get in and work as a team. I feel very lucky.”

Overall, it’s the sense of satisfaction that Sandy gets from helping that makes her so passionate about nursing.

“My favourite thing about my role is helping. Knowing that I’m actually making a difference in someone’s life. It doesn’t matter what I’m doing, it could just be a basic thing, but that basic thing can make a huge difference to someone’s life.”

Sandy has a simple message for anyone considering nursing:

“Do it. Don’t hesitate. You don’t just have to do nursing, it’s a broad career. I would encourage anyone to go for it, don’t hold back, life’s too short. When you can make a difference to someone’s life then that is the best reward”.

Young footballers get their kicks

Golden Bay’s Little Kicks programme kicked off last Saturday morning.

At Tākaka’s Rec Park and Collingwood Area School, swarms of four- and five-year-olds took to the turf where, under the watchful eye of their coach, they learnt basic skills, had fun, and began what could be a lifelong love of the game.

Having a supervised session next to 15 little kickers at Collingwood, a group of around 20 players, aged mostly between six and eight years-old, were being instructed in drills and skills by Ben James. After brushing up on their technique, the young footballers were divided into two teams for a casual 10-a-side game.

The older players then took their turn. Playing their first home game of the season, the Aorere Assassins took on Nelson Suburbs Celtics in a 11-12th Grade fixture. The hosts lived up to their name, firing in shots which regularly hit the target, and scored freely to maintain their winning start to the campaign.

In Tākaka, there were four matches played during the morning starting with the 9th Grade GB Mini Goats who worked hard for a win against Richmond Stars. In the same age category, Golden Bay’s Golden Eagles played out a 2-2 draw with visitors FC Nelson Wolves who levelled the score with a last-minute strike. In the 11-12th Grade match between the Mini Maidens and Nelson Suburbs Power, the visitors came out on top, while in the 13-14th Grade fixture Golden Bay Pumas got the better of Nelson Suburbs Steamers.

Kicking off at 3pm in the Men’s Masters competition, the GB Stingrays registered their first three points of the season with a 2-1 win against Richmond Bogans. In the other senior men’s fixtures, Division 1 high fliers GB Mountain Goats lost 5-0 to Blenheim Rangers at Neale Park, but the GB Gladiators beat Nelson Suburbs 3-1 in their Division 4 clash at Saxton Fields. In the Women’s Premiership, although GB Shield Maidens lost 7-0 to close rivals Richmond Foxes, the home side are still midtable after four games.

RESULTS AND FIXTURES

Rugby steps up for "Jack's Day"

A large Rec Park rugby crowd were treated to three highly entertaining matches last Saturday. But the occasion was about much more than the sport; players, staff and spectators had gathered on "Jack's Day" to raise funds for young Jack Holland who is undergoing treatment for melanoma.

Before the seniors took to the pitch, Tākaka’s younger rugby players got a chance to showcase their talents, with the U14s taking on Marist and the U17s facing Kahurangi.

In the U17s match, Tākaka got off to a flier, scoring a try in the first minute, but the visitors recovered from the shock to take a seven-point advantage into the half-time break. In the second half the home side racked up three converted tries to establish a 26-12 lead with around 20 minutes to play. Despite two tries and a conversion from Kahurangi, Tākaka still led 2624 with three minutes left on the clock. But a late try by the visitors took the final score to 26-29.

After a brief interlude, Tākaka’s First XV took to the pitch for their Division 2 clash against Murchison.

In a thoroughly absorbing contest, Tākaka’s young squad took the initiative early on with Riley Oakden putting his team’s first points on the board with a try after six minutes. Tom Bassett-Eason added another a minute later and followed that up with yet another on 18 minutes.

Although trailing by 21 points, Murchison kept plugging away and were rewarded with a try, taking the score to 21-5. But the home side struck back almost immediately, this time with a try from Alex Oakden to stretch the gap. The visitors’ cause

wasn’t helped when one of their players was yellow-carded, and Tākaka made hay while their numerical advantage existed, extending their tally to 40 points at half-time.

The home side’s dominance continued through the second half and the points total ticked up, thanks to two tries from slippery speedster Justin Davis, who is probably still giving the Murchison defence nightmares, and one from Reggie Baker.

During the match, Riley Oakden converted five of his team’s six tries to cap an impressive individual display. But what impressed most was the all-round team performance – a high energy, well-organised squad that combined grit with fluent attacking rugby. Final score: Tākaka 54, Murchison 12.

Speaking as the teams left the pitch, Tākaka coach Hamish Hills said he was very pleased with the performance, despite some niggles. “We were a bit loose on defence in the first half, but we wanted the ball, and we finished well. It’s a good win.”

Another good result – the most important of the day – was the success of Jack's fundraiser; all 500 raffle tickets were sold before the Division 2 game kicked off and the proceeds, along with generous donations, added up to over $4,000.

Collingwood, meanwhile, endured a chastening away defeat to Division 2 table-toppers Huia. After scoring the opening try in the first minute of the game, the home side piled on the pressure to take the half-time score to 38-0. Collingwood, the famous comeback kings, were unable to turn this one around but limited Huia to two tries in the second half. Final score: Huia 50, Collingwood 0.

Tomorrow, Collingwood host Riwaka, and Tākaka have a bye.

Nick Feint and Friends

Golden Bay singer-songwriter Nick Feint is performing at the Mussel Inn next weekend where he will be backed by his band of local musicians – Levity Beet on bass, Callie Lamont on violin and John Black on lead guitar.

Nick says the gig is “quite a big deal” for him with a key focus of the evening being the launch of his new single. Titled “Shadow To The Light” the track takes the listener on a very personal journey. “The new single is about healing from a tough time in my life and moving into joy and celebration of new direction and growth,” explains Nick.

His set is one of three; the other two feature “a bunch of friends” made at annual songwriting retreats. Bookending Nick’s performance are: Rachel Hird on piano and vocals, who is part of Wellington’s folk music community; and Pete Norris and Farley Hokopaura from Taranaki who wind up the evening’s entertainment with a selection of their heartfelt and thought-provoking original songs.

Nick Feint and Friends play at the Mussel Inn on Saturday 18 May at 7.30pm. Tickets: $15 on the door.

All just right at "Goldilocks School"

Motupipi School had a positive start to the year with settled children and routines and learning programmes in place early.

New staff member Julie McIntosh has brought new skills and talents to the school.

Early in the year, Room Two’s “camp” at Tāhunanui included visits to the Nelson Provincial Museum, Pic's Peanut Butter, Natureland, and Ngarua Caves.

Four new Abel Tasman Youth Ambassadors attended summer retreats at Tōtaranui under Project Janszoon, researching and gaining leadership skills and knowledge to assist with junior student trips. Their work surveying and collecting environmental data included litter counts, dune studies, and checking traps.

Swimming was a major focus in term one, encouraged by the heated pool, now closed for winter. The school is grateful to Swim Mohua for their help with pool maintenance in return for its use.

The Interschool Swimming Sports held at Golden Bay High School were a great chance for Motupipi students to compete. Many who entered the medley for the first time, battling it out through all the heats, were rewarded with certificates.

The school is ever mindful of its values, with term one focused on “respect”. Children explored the values in their everyday lives through discussion and role play. The value for term two focuses on “resilience”, already experienced by many during recent sporting events. The school triathlon, involving biking, swimming, and running, was difficult for some, their resilience well tested. At the end-of-term assembly, certificates were awarded for achievement, especially to those who had overcome their challenges, as usual with great support from parents and grandparents.

Staff and whānau recently met for a goal setting hui, focusing on academic, social, and emotional development for

each child, as well as creating individual home goals.

Principal Rachel Evans says the school is tracking well. “I look at our team and see how well we’ve grown, and how cohesive it all feels, not just teaching staff but also the support jobs. We have a good roll and growing. I call us the ‘Goldilocks School’ – not too big and not too little. We’ve got a really nice learning culture, great staff, and the kids are pretty good too.”
