Raglan Area School sports awards honours former student

Two teams riding for rhinos in two countries

Charlie - may not be a rhino, but he's very pleased with himself on the new scales! showing off to my girlfriend weighing him!

Raglan Area School rising sports stars Sasha Kirkwood, Dayton Keremeta and Adi-Grace Mooar with the Richard Keremeta Sports Ambassador Award.

aglan Area School 2018 sports awards was an occasion for celebrating up-and-coming young sportspeople and paying tribute to a former sports star. The Richard Keremeta Sports Ambassador Award was presented for the first time this year to Dayton Keremeta, 17 and Adi-Grace Mooar, 16. Former Raglan Area School student Richard Keremeta died after jumping off the bridge and being struck by another bridge jumper in 2016. Carved and donated by outgoing principal Malcolm Cox, the trophy is a testament to the Richard’s outstanding attitude and aptitude towards sports, senior teacher Joe Rao says. “The award is for someone who displays a love of sport, is dedicated, hardworking and hard training. Not necessarily the best but the best team player, which really was what Richard was like. Richard was involved in every possible sport. He was a great ambassador for sports and he was loved by his friends and community.”

Richard’s younger brother Dayton says it was nice to receive the award and his family were very honoured by the significance of the award. Dayton received Most Improved Player in basketball and soccer and only took up soccer for the first time this year in a player trade-off to get numbers for the team Dayton was asked by a friend to play and in return his friend joined the basketball team. Adi-Grace was school sports captain this year and also received Most Valuable Player – soccer and the coaches award for basketball, she also represented Raglan at the Area Schools National Sports Tournament 2018. Overall Sportsperson of the year went to Sasha Kirkwood, 16, who took out the under-16 girls’ athletics, swimming and cross-country champs and made the Area Schools’ North Island team. Joe says there were many other outstanding players who received awards in front of a packed house reaffirming the school’s continued success in sport. Janine Jackson

Dear Editor Jeanette and I have owned a section in Raglan for 15 years and lived here permanently for nearly 11 years. Compared to some of you that is hardly enough to be a true ‘local’ because you have lived here most or even all of your lives. For others of you it is more than enough years in town to call this place home, because like us, you have moved here

in the last 5-10 years and now you feel ‘local’ as well. And in my opinion that is exactly what you are……..especially if you have jumped off the bridge. In the last of couple of months, I have been involved in a number of conversations where long-term locals are lamenting the changes taking place in our cute little town; everything from the changing

H

aving returned home only a few weeks ago, Tusk and Horn Wildlife Trust founder Sarah has been busy wrapping up the team’s fundraising efforts and thanking our supporters and sponsors. Our goal was to fund the weigh system for the orphans who call the Zululand Rhino Orphanage their home. With our main fundraiser being a ‘Safari’ team each year in the Karioi Classic, we decided this year that we would tick two rides off - one here at home and the other in the homeland of the black and white rhinoceros, South Africa. Jules from ‘Team Moose’ as they are known, had yet another amazing ride, admittedly an hour longer than last year, but loved every minute of it! Breaking your chain going up the last long Whaanga Road hill before hitting the gravel isn’t what any rider needs on the day. But then out of nowhere, a van appears and pulls over. It’s being driven by Joe, who’s following his son around the course. Incredibly Joe has a brand-new spare chain and a spare bike on board. What happened next is quite extraordinary and very Raglan style; “He lends me his bike (I kid you not) so I can carry on while he fixes my chain,” says Jules. “Five kilometres later he catches me up – we swap back bikes and I carry on to the finish line.” Only in Raglan does magic like this happen. Four weeks later Gareth and I are lying in our tents feeling the lions deep roar in our chests as we fall asleep. We then wake up and watch elephants demographics, to increasing house prices, to rent increases, to the advent of Air BNB and the resultant loss of long-term rental accommodation, to the increase in visitors (both New Zealanders and Internationals), to increasing Council rates and everything in between. I agree. Not all of this is good. I agree that Raglan is not the same place as it was 15 years ago, perhaps not even

on a nearby hill, while having pre-race breakfast, and then catch a glimpse of a large buffalo herd charging along the ridgeline as we cycle through the hot, dry savannah - quite the contrast to our ocean side ride and looking down the coastline at snow covered Mt Taranaki. We covered 70 kms of fantastic and at times gruelling terrain in the annual two day exclusive Rhino Ride, set on the Manyoni Game Reserve in South Africa with its vast expanses of varied landscapes. Proceeds from this ride are the major contributor to the ongoing high costs of the reserve’s anti-poaching units and onsite rhino orphanage. Before we left Gareth and I went and saw Peter at Raglan Engineering with a project proposal that made his eyes light up. I had a drawing of a weigh platform for young rhino in my hand and asked if he would help with an engineer’s drawing. Being the super lovely guy that Peter is, he put pen to paper straight away and between the three of us we came up with the plan destined for a steel fabricator in Durban. Thank you to our Team Moose members, Tim from Raglan Backpackers, the Raglan community and local businesses that supported us and our fundraiser, which enabled it be a great success. We were able to deliver the platform and Gallagher scales right to the door of the Zululand Rhino Orphanage.

the same as 5 years ago. But I for one love the vibe and challenge that change brings. The great irony is that the only constant these days is change. That’s our new world order of things and not one of us can change that. What we can do, however, is manage change so that we minimise the negative impacts of it and embrace AND leverage the positive

aspects that change brings. But before we can do that we will need to agree what is negative and what is positive and that I fear will be our most difficult assignment as a community, as recent conversations clearly prove. Alan Vink


TimeBank workshop looks at community resilience

imebank Raglan recently held a workshop with Project Lyttelton chair Margaret Jefferies to discuss community resilience.

Margaret introduced the concept of TimeBanking to New Zealand and following the Canterbury earthquakes in 2010 and 2011, the Lyttelton TimeBank acted as a hub organisation activating its extensive social network through which valuable resources could flow. Over 20 representatives from various local organisations attended the workshop including the Raglan Rest Home and Hospital, Raglan Backpackers, The Yoga

Space, Crop Swap, Chamber of Commerce, Trade Aid, Raglan Community Board and Raglan Area School. Participants looked at how their organisations could fit into the TimeBank model, what they can offer and what they can get in return. TimeBank Raglan coordinator Anna Cunningham says the workshop was inspiring and heart-warming, and she looks forward to having conversations with Raglan organisations about how TimeBank can work for them. “I'm so excited about the synergies that came up as we were talking, and the opportunities that TimeBank has to act as

a conduit for collaboration between our organisations.” The workshop provided motivation for Raglan Rest Home and Hospital and Raglan Area School to sign up to TimeBank and Anna says she will start working with them to find ways that TimeBank can benefit them. Anna and Juliana are keen to hear from both individuals and organisations who want to get involved with TimeBank Raglan and help create a connected, resilient community - contact timebank@ whaingaroa.org.nz.

Don’t despair if you haven’t signed up yet for the Waitetuna Wind Farm Trail Run – earlybird concessions may have gone a while back but you’ve still up to two weeks to register. And don’t worry about going off course in the centrepiece half marathon: organisers have introduced extra measures this year to ensure you stay on track. These are the messages from Waitetuna School teacher aide and PTA chairperson Jess Otton, who is again helping organise the event . “We thought why not do it again, everyone enjoyed it so much last year and it’s a very good way to fundraise.” The Waitetuna Wind Farm Trail Run this time round will have extra signage, more race marshals, more tape marking the way – in three different colours to define the 21km, 10km and 5km routes – and a cellphone number for racers to ring if in strife. “But fingers crossed no-one will need it,” says Jess. There’ll also be no need for competitors to wear anything around their ankles as this year a timing mechanism will be incorporated in each race bib. While the longest course up to the wind turbines is expected to attract more serious runners – some in training for Raglan Karioi Trail two weeks later – the shorter options which can be run or walked give this event a family focus, says Jess. Her hubby and three children – aged from seven to 20 – all completed either the five or 10km courses last year, while her adult daughter and partner acted as guardians for a keen young Auckland runner flown in by his

grandfather to the Raglan airstrip. Jess says her daughter hopes the boy, if he returns and needs accompanying again, is not wanting to tackle the half marathon this year! The wind farm trail includes river crossings, bush and farm tracks through the private property of Hamish and Julie Ormond, whose own children once went to Waitetuna School and who are happy to support the event. While the terrain in places is tough, the views of Whaingaroa harbour and the bar from the top of the 21km track are described as “stunning”. Every race finisher will receive a medal signifying the local area. There’ll also be spot prizes, food and drink to buy at the start/finish line, giving this event a real community feel. The PTA is hoping to attract more than last year’s 309 registrations which came in from all over the country, and to match or better the near-$11000 raised especially since the annual interschool cross-country – traditionally held at the Macdonald farm – was “rained off” this year. People wanting to take part in the event have only until this Friday to register at normal rates, which are $20 for the 5km, $45 for the 10km and $65 for the 21km. Late registrations – which will be accepted from this Saturday through to Thursday November 22, just two days before the event – all carry an extra $10 fee. Funds raised will be used to improve the school’s court area, which needs new paint markings for the various sports played on it as well as new basketball hoops. Edith Symes ● Waitetuna Wind Farm Trail Run will be held on Saturday November 24. The 21km starts at 8am, the 10km at 9am and the 5km at 9.30am.

Iyengar yoga centenary celebration his year, 2018, marks the T one hundredth

anniversary of the birth of the late BKS Iyengar. Yoga was virtually unknown in the Western world until BKS Iyengar began to promote yoga with demonstrations and workshops in the mid-1950s. He developed the method known today as Iyengar Yoga and wrote numerous books on the subject, most notably Light on Yoga which was first published in 1966 and has since been translated into 17 languages. His teachings at the Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Institute in Pune, India and at international workshops inspired students from all

walks of life until his death in 2014. His legacy lives on through the many who learned from him and who continue his teachings of yoga for the next generation. As part of the world-wide Centenary celebrations for the late Mr B K S Iyengar, the Iyengar Yoga Association of Aotearoa, NZ, is holding a 100 strong Yoga Convention in Raglan 9 - 11 Nov. We welcome the Raglan community, yogis of all types and potential yogis, to come celebrate with us at the free classes on Friday 9th Nov 4 - 5 pm and on Saturday 10th Nov 8 - 9 am. Bring your own mat if you can. Contact your local Iyengar Yoga teacher for info at corry.yoga@gmail. com/text 027 389 4987.

It takes a village An opinion on learning in Whaingaroa

W

hen I was about 10 years old my mother informed me that our family was moving to Raglan. I was devastated.

Having grown up in Auckland, my memories of Raglan at age 10 consisted of endless gravel roads leading to nothing but bush and beaches. At the time my family lived in Milford, which is a suburb on Auckland’s North Shore. The area wasn’t quite as busy as inner-city Auckland, but it definitely had the creature comforts of a town centre with its shopping mall, marina and picturesque white sand beach. I guess you could describe Milford as the antithesis of Raglan in terms of values. To try and console me about moving to a small town, my mother offered to enroll me in a ‘city’ school but the thought of having to sit in a bus for over two hours every day was so unbearable that I refused. I didn’t really have any expectations on my first day attending Raglan Area School but the one thing that struck me was the amount of Māori students at the school and the amount of Māori that was spoken at the school. The roll at the intermediate school that I attended before moving to Raglan included about

1% Māori. The school had a higher number of East Asian and other Pacific Island nationalities than it did Māori students. During assembly the students would sing the national anthem and that theme song from the T.V show, Friends. I attended RAS between the years 2000 and 2004 and I’d say the roll would’ve included around 50% Maori. Until I came to this school, I’d never experienced a powhiri or stepped foot on a marae or learnt kapa haka (or sung any Māori song that wasn’t a preschool level waiata for that matter). I still remember my first day pretty vividly. I didn’t really know what to expect but straight off the bat three local girls asked who I was and made sure that I wasn’t alone. I was so touched by their sense of manaakitanga, that kindness and aroha extended to me, a complete stranger. Back in September I attended Malcolm Cox’s poroporoaki event, a formal farewell, as he left his position as principal of RAS. Malcolm was deputy principal when I attended the school, so while I never experienced him as a principal, we did work together at times while I was head girl in 2003. Malcolm was also my math teacher. Probably one of my favourite math teachers actually. I have always been pretty good at math so I enjoyed the class anyway

but Malcolm made math interesting because he’d always teach you a shortcut or some trick that made you see the problem a little differently. I’d always been a good learner, especially when it came to school. To be honest though, I’d never tried very hard because everything came easily to me. I guess you could say I got good marks but I was never really personally invested in my learning achievements. I realised how blasé my attitude was toward said achievements on the day of my NCEA Level 1 mathematics exam. I must’ve got my dates or times mixed up but for some reason I didn’t think I had anything important to do that day. I was happily asleep in bed unaware that I was about to completely miss my exam. My mother had just assumed I knew all my exam dates so didn’t even question why I was sleeping in. Luckily, Malcolm pulled up at my house on his motorbike to personally wake me up, just in time for me to get to my exam – 10 minutes late. Apparently if I didn’t take the exam, the entire school’s NCEA result would be much lower, or that’s what they told me anyway to get me out of bed. Being a shy, self-involved teenager, I didn’t really understand the significance at the time but

Malcolm has dedicated 33 years of his life to Raglan Area School.

looking back, I’m not sure that any other teacher living outside of this community would have done that for me. Being in my thirties now, I realise that education is not just about knowledge and achievements but also about building character. During the speeches at Malcolm’s poroporoaki, those that stood up spoke of his willingness to reach out and continue the connection with the Maori community, his integrity and honesty, his ability to work with teenagers and also about his support for the community whether that was to implement a “crazy idea” like the Surfing Academy or opening up the school facilities for the community during times of mourning.

Math is one of those subjects where there is usually a correct answer. Being good at math doesn’t teach you things like wairua or respect though and I think Malcolm was even better at teaching life’s intangibles than concepts like math. Thank you, Malcolm, for the 33 years you dedicated to Raglan Area School and for personally coming to wake me up that morning (among the various other things you have done for me). Hopefully you can now spend your days with your family and embarking on your new journey working in poignant ta tou pounamu. Maki Nishiyama

Friends of Wainui Reserve Raglan youth making t-shirt designs that matter celebrates 25 years this November

R

aglan youth are getting creative with design and t-shirts at a Raglan Community House screen printing workshop 'Graff Ur Tee' on Wednesdays from 3-6pm.

Tutor Gila Colen, a local artist from Ahoy Creative Crew, will cover design principals, hand cut stencils and screen printing for a small-scale operation during the six-week course. She says although there are only three weeks left of the course, youth aged 12 to 18 are welcome to call in and have a go. “With a simple design you can make a t-shirt in one session. We have plenty of t-shirts but they can bring their own plain t-shirt to screen-print.” she says. Budding creatives Chloe Wharekawa and Brooke Ahern, both aged 14, say the course is a great opportunity to do something arty.

O

usually get to do art stuff after school,” Brooke says. Another goal of the programme is to promote recycling and reusing by screen printing second-hand tees. Donations of clean, cotton, plain t-shirts can be dropped off to a box at the community house entrance or see manager Mike Rarere. The youth will also be involved in marketing and promoting their tees at the Raglan Community House as the young entrepreneurs learn about the process of taking a product from the

creative process right through to selling the finished t-shirt. Janine Jackson For more information contact The Raglan House on 825 8142 or email info@theraglanhouse.co.nz.

Health in your Hands

Many committed their time and labour without any prospect of being able to see the end result 25 years later. The 25th An-niversary is a celebration of all the hard work and vision of the volunteers who over the years have contributed towards making the Wainui Reserve what it is today. The European interaction with this piece of land began in the 1880s with the operation of a flax mill on the Wainui stream above the junction with the Ahiawa Stream. The drain diverting the water from the stream to the mill can still be seen, as can the depressions made by temporary dwell-ings constructed by the mill workers from the Kopua Pa. The mill closed

in 1895 and the land was leased from the Raglan County Council by Mr. McJanet as part of the Pilot Station. Sometime after that, the lease of 6.5 hectares transferred to Betty Rawley’s (nee Jackson) family who farmed the Pilot Station. However, the Raglan County Council wanted to convert the whole area into grazing land including the 6.5 hectares leased by the Jackson family. Opposition to this proposal came from Betty and Frank Rawley and, with the help of councillor Michael Hope, resulted in the land being fenced off and made into the Pilot Reserve. In 1993, with encouragement from Betty and Frank Rawley, a group of volunteers supported by the Waikato District Council, began planting the area in native trees. By 2001 the volunteers (Friends of Wainui) had planted over 13,000 trees, with planting still continuing today. Friends of Wainui propagated most of the early trees, planted,

laid out paths, constructed water features and built bridges. Other activities include labelling native trees, developing a car park, toilet facilities, seating, picnic areas, pest control and generally fostering an environment that enables a bare, scrubby and wet 5.5 hectares to become a self-generating bush area enjoyed by all who wander the pathways or sit and absorb the hushed stillness of the bush and the birdsong. The hard work of volunteers over 25 years is to be celebrated as the Wainui Reserve has become a valuable asset in the Raglan area, adding to the diversity of activities freely available to the public. It also reflects the culture of a caring, volunteering and doing community, that is Rag-lan. The Friends of Wainui Reserve meet on alternate Monday mornings to maintain and further develop the Reserve. Facebook: Friends of Wainui.

inning The Most Beautiful Small Town Supreme Award, shows what the people of Raglan are made of. Businesses, volunteers and service groups go beyond the call of duty to make events happen, to help with voluntary organisations, to care for our environment and keep our beaches safe and clean. Some have been involved for many years, some have passed on, while new-comers have taken up the challenge (another generation of Golden Hearts of Raglan). The TimeBank had a visit from Margaret Jefferies, who in 2005 started Timebanking in New Zealand in Lyttleton. She explained how Lyttleton, having an established network of Timebank volunteers during the earthquakes, was a big asset to the devastated community. The next step in Raglan is to get more elderly involved in this amazing organization and be better prepared for any unexpected eventuality. The Raglan Lions Volunteers work seven days a week recycling and selling clothes at the Lions Opportunity Shop. During the next few months they need extra volunteers to cover the summer

season. The money they raise goes towards community events such as the New Year Parade and the Wearable Arts Festival, as well as helping individuals and families in need, especial during a crisis. The Raglan Community House coordinates services for all ages in Raglan and provides venues for many groups such as the Saturday Club, Senior Technology, Youth Groups and Service Groups. Volunteers are needed as hosts and people to run the Opportunity Shop, which is open on a Saturday during the Summer. Halloween was celebrated with several successful events in Raglan and young and old joined in to commemorate several ancient traditions going back over 2000 years. In the Northern Hemisphere Halloween marked the beginning of a New Year, the end of summer and the harvesting of crops. By the 6th century AD the Romans who honoured the Christian Martyrs in May, moved the celebration to November 1 to coincide with established pagan festivals. Halloween has taken its name from ‘All Hallows’, ‘All Hallowmas’, and All Saints Day or Souls Day. The English and Irish who emigrated to America in the mid-1800s carried their Celtic traditions with them to their new homeland. Diwali is also celebrated in November and is one of the most

important festivals in Indian culture. Diwali translates to Festival of Lights or Feast of Lanterns and is now recognised all over the world. Happy Memories of growing up in Northern England after the end of WWII,include Halloween being an excuse to dress up and have a party. Harvest Festivals were followed by Bonfire Night (Guy Fawkes) and the Feast of Lanterns. We shared the abundance of autumn and burned the rubbish accumulated throughout the year. Fireworks Displays when I was very small in the 1940’s were a backyard affair. Several families congregated at a neighbour’s place and dads would turn up with a coveted biscuit-tin full of fireworks, which they set off on top of the concrete coal bunker. Kids at a safe distance were allowed sparklers. Meanwhile, mums supplied Yorkshire Parkin (Ginger Bread), Flap Jack, Treacle Toffee and Toffee Apples and the children cooked jacket potatoes over a small bonfire. On one occasion my father forgot to put the lid on his tin of fireworks and we had had an impromptu, but spectacular, display with skyrockets, Catherine Wheels and Roman Candles and jumpingjacks flying in all directions! Before Bonfire Night, as teenagers, we went round the

Phone: 07 825 8306

streets with an effigy of Guy Fawkes (sometimes a real person) in a wheel barrow shouting “a penny for the Guy“ so we could buy fireworks. On Mischief Night, November 4 we tried to pilfer wood from neighbouring bonfires or even set them alight. We would sit around guarding ‘our gang’s’

bonfire, letting off ‘penny bangers’ to scare away would-be raiders. Remembrance Day (Poppy Day) on November 11 was a more sombre occasion. We did not celebrate ANZAC Day, so this was the time organizations gathered together to remember those who gave so much. Pauline Abrahams

Wind Farm Trail Run all on track – and there’s still time to register

See in-store for details

Copy rates start from $0.25 for A4 black and white and a discounted rate applies to 100 or more copies. Files to be printed can also be emailed to: cycleryraglan@gmail.com. Collection same day. Obviously, you can still come and see me for all your bicycle needs and repairs.

Please drink responsibly

Don’t despair if you haven’t signed up yet for the Waitetuna Wind Farm Trail Run – earlybird concessions may have gone a while back but you’ve still up to two weeks to register. And don’t worry about going off course in the centrepiece half marathon: organisers have introduced extra measures this year to ensure you stay on track. These are the messages from Waitetuna School teacher aide and PTA chairperson Jess Otton, who is again helping organise the event . “We thought why not do it again, everyone enjoyed it so much last year and it’s a very good way to fundraise.” The Waitetuna Wind Farm Trail Run this time round will have extra signage, more race marshals, more tape marking the way – in three different colours to define the 21km, 10km and 5km routes – and a cellphone number for racers to ring if in strife. “But fingers crossed no-one will need it,” says Jess. There’ll also be no need for competitors to wear anything around their ankles as this year a timing mechanism will be incorporated in each race bib. While the longest course up to the wind turbines is expected to attract more serious runners – some in training for Raglan Karioi Trail two weeks later – the shorter options which can be run or walked give this event a family focus, says Jess. Her hubby and three children – aged from seven to 20 – all completed either the five or 10km courses last year, while her adult daughter and partner acted as guardians for a keen young Auckland runner flown in by his

grandfather to the Raglan airstrip. Jess says her daughter hopes the boy, if he returns and needs accompanying again, is not wanting to tackle the half marathon this year! The wind farm trail includes river crossings, bush and farm tracks through the private property of Hamish and Julie Ormond, whose own children once went to Waitetuna School and who are happy to support the event. While the terrain in places is tough, the views of Whaingaroa harbour and the bar from the top of the 21km track are described as “stunning”. Every race finisher will receive a medal signifying the local area. There’ll also be spot prizes, food and drink to buy at the start/finish line, giving this event a real community feel. The PTA is hoping to attract more than last year’s 309 registrations which came in from all over the country, and to match or better the near-$11000 raised especially since the annual interschool cross-country – traditionally held at the Macdonald farm – was “rained off” this year. People wanting to take part in the event have only until this Friday to register at normal rates, which are $20 for the 5km, $45 for the 10km and $65 for the 21km. Late registrations – which will be accepted from this Saturday through to Thursday November 22, just two days before the event – all carry an extra $10 fee. Funds raised will be used to improve the school’s court area, which needs new paint markings for the various sports played on it as well as new basketball hoops. Edith Symes ● Waitetuna Wind Farm Trail Run will be held on Saturday November 24. The 21km starts at 8am, the 10km at 9am and the 5km at 9.30am. For more information and to register, go to www.waitetunatrailrun. co.nz.
