MARLBOROUGH SOUNDS COMMUNITY VEHICLE TRUST Do you need to go to Nelson for a medical appointment? Is the driving difficult or even impossible and the family and friends reluctant to take you there? There is now a Marlborough Sounds Community Vehicle Trust. The object of the Trust is to carry persons who cannot drive, for whatever reason, to Medical appointments in Nelson. Membership of the Trust will cost $15 per annum. There will be a small charge for the journey and any member who lives in the Picton/Waikawa area or anywhere along Queen Charlotte Drive or State Highway 6 from Havelock to Rai Valley is eligible. It would be impracticable to divert from those roads but a pick up anywhere along those roads will be done. If you would like to know more contact:

HOW DOES THE HAVELOCK COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION COMMITTEE OPERATE? From time to time members of the Havelock Community Association Committee receive enquiries about how the committee structure operates. There are generally monthly meetings which are advertised on the HCA website, Facebook and in the school newsletter, as well as several posters put up in the village. However, committee members are expected to do more than just attending the monthly committee meeting. Members are allocated to one or more of five sub-committees and three project subcommittees. These sub-committees generally meet monthly and report to the HCA monthly committee meeting. As/when they bring recommendations, they are discussed and resolved at the subsequent monthly meeting. Sub-committees and Chairs * Admin Muff Newton Administration of the Hub in the “Eyes on Nature” building. * Assets Ian Cameron Assets of the Community - Town Hall, Pavilion, Medical Centre and Holiday Park. * DIA Barbara Faulls Manages the Community Liaison Officer Contract and liaises with the Department of Internal Affairs which funds Hans’ position, including rent, salary and travel. * Vision

2020 Barbara Faulls Handles smaller projects which the HCA Committee does not have the time to look after including Tumble Tots, Pelorus FM radio station, Tai Chi, Dance HQ and the recent summer swimming classes. Being a Charitable Trust, it has the ability to apply for funding not available to HCA and so is not funded by the HCA. * Water Graeme Barsanti Tasked with preserving Havelock’s interests in improving quality and quantity of our water.

All the chairs listed invite the public to contact them with any comments, suggestions or concerns. The next HCA Committee meeting will be held at the Pavilion on Monday 27th June at 7pm. These meetings are open to all members of the Havelock Community Association. What makes us the way we are? The brand new Kiwi series Why Am I? has the answers. In 1972 the University of Otago started a study that would follow 1,000 babies for their entire lives, making these Kiwis the most studied people in the world! Now it's time to reveal the fascinating discoveries. Does the amount of sunlight a pregnant woman receives influence the height of her children as adults? Is it IQ, hard work or a wealthy background that makes someone successful? It's time to explore the science of us.

NOTES FROM… Good to see the increasing number of groups of visitors coming to visit our museum. This year we have already had three groups arrange to be shown through and it is always a delight to greet these people and to talk with them afterwards. It is always interesting to hear of connections with Pelorus families. Their comments about the museum are generally positive. Comments like, “A hidden gem,” are often said. It is interesting to read the survey forms and learn where our visitors are from. Visitors from Finland, France and Korea are among those who came during this last holiday period. From their comments we received favourable comments on our upgrade. Among them was one which read, “We think your upgrade superb and well deserved of your award.” Of course we also received some constructive suggestions, many of them around wanting more social histories around families and businesses in the area and having more pre-European history. We are enthusiastic about our five-year plan to convert the Jack Shand building into an auxiliary museum where we can accommodate more displays. This is a further and interesting journey for the museum and we are keen to have members of our committee who can provide ideas for this development. If you would like to hear more about this concept, please come to the Museum Annual General Meeting at 10:00am on Thursday 28th July at the Pavilion. ANNUAL REPORT The school’s 2015 Annual Report was last week completed the auditors and is available online via the school’s website. Mauri Ora nā Akoranga ~ Learning for Life… since 1861

CANDIDATES FOR OUTWARD BOUND Every year the Havelock Lions Club arranges sponsorship for a young person aged between 18 and 25 to attend a classic Outward Bound course. Funding for this comes from the Lions Club and from First Light Trust so that any young person who lives in the Pelorus area can be selected. The course runs for 21 days and during this time our candidate will experience all outdoor elements and activities Outward Bound has to offer including sailing, kayaking, bushcraft and navigation. However, the most important aspect of the course will be the realisation that our candidate can rise to the challenge realising his or her potential and learning that, with perseverance, dreams can be achieved. Our candidate will: 1. Challenge him/her self and push limits 2. Reflect, discover what is important to them and determine their future direction 3. Learn about themselves from both success and failure to take their confidence and motivation to the next level 4. Discover what it takes to create effective relationships and be part of a successful team 5. Develop a stronger sense of personal responsibility in responses to real and challenging situations.

FROM GUM TREES TO CASH As with most fairy tales there is a twist. So too with this story. DoC, you may have noticed has now dropped the large gum trees that were forming an increasingly impressive backdrop to the port at the bottom of Lawrence St, Havelock Quay and Outram St. It has offered the school the opportunity to convert them into funds. The large trunks have been converted into logs and taken away on trucks leaving the smaller material. With no magic wand at hand, the school will need to muster chainsaws, splitters, trailers and muscle, not to mention the scones, tea, coffee and other liquid replacement therapy so the wish can be turned into reality. At some stage in the not too distant future the call will go out to circle a date on the calendar so the conversion process can begin. Thanks for your help in anticipation.

NYLD National Young Leaders Day was, for the first time, hosted in Nelson last Friday rather than just in the main centres. Mr B, Georgie McCauley, Sara, Jordan, Ari and Taylor took the opportunity to join about three hundred students from Te Tau Ihu and even as far away as Westport, for a day of inspiration and motivation by some amazing kiwis. Set in a “rock concert” type atmosphere created by the hosts, crew, lights, staging, media screens and audio, the messaging was clear, “That each and every one of us is born to make a positive difference in this world – what difference will you make?” Some amazing stories were told from very different people. The first was by Mauri Ora nā Akoranga ~ Learning for Life… since 1861

well-known kiwi Billy Graham of the Naenae Boxing Academy. His quote is on the front page of this newsletter and underscored the values of respect, responsibility, compassion, consideration, kindness, duty, obedience, honesty and truthfulness. Interactive breaks involving all were played and kept the energy up for all the listening being done. Taylor even got on stage trying to score best with a pedometer. Stories were told by James Beck, Brylee Mills, Marina Alefosio and others, all however contained the strong underlying themes of hard work and not judging yourself against peers, but rather having dreams, setting a pathway towards them, getting help and working hard. In an attitude of gratitude, all the young leaders present wrote to people important to them. Role models were also covered… a very busy day indeed and certainly worth attending. NYLD is run by The Parenting Place which believes every child is already a leader and that each reach their potential far more readily when they are backed up by their parents and whanau.

June 24 sees this annual event take place at Waitaria Bay School and with 2016 ticking over steadily the school is looking at fielding at least one but maybe two teams of three students (Y6-8 mixed) each. It is hoped a parent team of three might also be field this year. Water transport is being shared this year so teams need to be finalised fairly soon. If the challenges below look like fun then please let your child’s teacher know. There is no cost. Technology Challenge You will be given a period of time, limited resources and a design brief, some obstacle/challenge will need to be overcome and certain criteria met - hopefully. Materials will be supplied/limited. General Knowledge Quiz This quiz will consist of a range of current events questions, math problems and photo identification. Your overall points will be added to the technology challenge scores to give an overall winner for the day.

RENOVATIONS These are now virtually complete with minor items completed over the weekend and only the sliding doors still needing to be fitted - a long and disruptive process finally coming to fruition. A solution is being explored re the congestion around the cubby holes at the senior end and over time, with new routines etc, should overcome the earlier problems. 60 DEGREES ~ trying the right angle A small but vibrant group met last Thursday and explored how the angles worked for them and just what ‘homework’ represented. The following gives an insight as to what might comprise the notion and reality homework, age and stage dependent of course.  Work that is completed outside school hours – thinking, academic, physical, practice and not always organised by the school  An opportunity to practise skills and consolidate knowledge, talk about stuff and share learning with the family  Reading, writing and arithmetic practice – a way for parents to know where their children are in their learning  Work done at home reinforcing lessons done in school, extend vocabulary  Extra work done at home to catch up or extend school work  Reading to or with, practise recall/equations, sleuthing, talking, gathering, prepping for next day, stuff to tidy up, practise in daily life – time variable Just how best to attend to the above were discussed from all three sides of the triangle with some great ideas being shared about how to encourage and reinforce. Thanks to all. Mauri Ora nā Akoranga ~ Learning for Life… since 1861
