I   had   a   teacher   named   Lewis   Fretz   at   University.   Waikato   were   the   National   Champions  and  Ranfurly  Shield  holders   at   the   time   and   our   tutorials   would   consist   of   50   minutes   talking   about   the   upcoming  game  and  about  5  minutes  on   what  was  happening  in  class.

Local recognised as an ‘unsung hero’

Big day out for ‘buddies’ raises abuse awareness

W Centre’s  

haingaroa   Environment   child-­sized,   cardboard  ‘buddies’  had  a  great   day  last  week  –  helping  to  plant   a   garden   and   making   the   most   of  photo  opportunities  in  town. There  were  other  buddies  around   town  too,  sitting  on  a  bench  outside   Trade   Aid   for   instance,   catching   the   attention   of   passers-­by.   In   fact   Raglan  Community  House  registered   16   buddies   in   all   to   help   celebrate   national   Buddy   Day,   and   raise   awareness  about  the  role  every  adult   plays  in  preventing  child  abuse. Each  buddy  came  complete  with   a   little   book   telling   its   own   story,   including   its   likes   and   dislikes.  And   it   was   up   to   the   buddies’   carers   –   real   people   from   businesses   and   organisations   such   as   the   local   postshop,   bank,   real   estate   and   Plunket   –   to   parade   their   buddies   in   the  street. “Children   can’t   prevent   child   abuse   –   but   adults   can,�   was   the   message  behind  the  exercise.

The   special   day   is   promoted   by   Child   Matters   charitable   trust   and   is   New   Zealand’s   only   community   event  aimed  at  looking  out  for  Kiwi   kids,   albeit   with   a   somewhat   novel   approach. “It  takes  a  community  to  protect   and   look   after   children,â€?   says   local   community   house   co-­ordinator   Chrissy  Hodkinson,  pointing  out  it’s   WKHÂżUVW\HDU5DJODQÂśVEHHQLQYROYHG with  the  cause. Raglan   Area   School   students   also   played   a   part   by   decorating   the   cardboard   buddies   before   they   ventured   into   town   with   their   carers   for  the  awareness-­raising  day  out.       Edith  Symes Community House grateful for local support: Thanks  to  support  from  students   at   Te   Uku   school   and   Raglan   area   school   on   participating   in   creating   the   buddies   (with   the   assistance   of   the   SWiS   Hineoma   Paekau   Rush)   and  the  support  from  local  businesses   who  cared  for  our  buddies.      RCH

aglan  Community  House   co-­ordinator   Chrissy   Hodkinson   reckons   there’s   always   more   work   to   be  done  around  town  whether   it’s   supporting   last   week’s   Buddy   Day   or   this   week’s   White  Ribbon  Ride,  an  annual   week-­long   motorcycle   tour   promoting   a   message   against   domestic  violence. Riders  arrive  in  town  tomorrow   (Friday)   under   police   escort   to   a   formal   welcome   in   Wainui   Road   between  Bow  and  Bankart  Streets,   where  Raglan  FM  music  and  Kapa   Haka   from   the   local   area   school   will  provide  entertainment. The  visit’s  been  organised  from  

the   community   house   by   Raglan   Community   Violence   Prevention   and   Awareness   Group   and   encourages  people  to  sign  a  pledge   promising   “never   to   commit,   condone   or   remain   silent   about   violence  towards  women�.   It’s   just   one   of   many   causes   supported   by   the   community   house   team   and   of   course   Chrissy,   who   was   honoured   recently   in   the   inaugural   Mayor’s   Community   Awards.   Chrissy   was   one   of   seven   stalwarts   from   across   the   Waikato   district  presented  with  their  awards   by   Mayor   Allan   Sanson   at   a   ceremony   in   the   council   chambers   also   attended   by   Raglan   ward   councillor  Clint  Baddeley.   “It   was   very   special   for   me,�   Chrissy   said   of   the   presentation.   “There’s   never   a   shortage   of  

things   to   be   done,�   she   added,   acknowledging  the  teamwork  at  the   community  house  where  she’s  been   co-­ordinator  four  years  now. Mayor   Sanson   initiated   the   awards   to   formally   recognise   the   “above   and   beyond�   contribution   each   recipient   makes   on   behalf   of   their   community.     “So   often   these   unsung   heroes   go   about   their   business   quietly,   not   seeking   recognition   or   the   limelight,   when   they   should   be   thanked   and   acknowledged   for   their   amazing   efforts   to   improve   their   community.� *Catch   the  White   Ribbon   Ride   event   downtown   tomorrow,   Friday   November   22,   from   10am   to   1pm.     Everyone  welcome.

Community has a week to have say on new liquor outlet

A  

new  liquor  outlet  is  planned   for   the   former   Burger   Shack   premises   in   Bow   Street   –   and   anyone   concerned   about  it  has  until  28th  November   (Thursday)   to   lodge   an   objection   with   Waikato   District   Council’s   district  licensing  agency. Raglan   Community   House   co-­ ordinator   Chrissy   Hodkinson   raised   the   alarm   this   week   over   Venus   NZ   Limited’s   application   for   a   liquor   licence   for   the   venture,   to   be   named   Bow   Street   Liquor,   saying   she   did   not   personally   believe   Raglan   needed   another  alcohol  outlet. In   a   widely   circulated   email,   she   said  the  work  of  the  Raglan  Community   Violence  and  Prevention  Group  showed   domestic  violence  was  of  considerable   concern   here   –   and   much   of   that   violence  was  fuelled  by  alcohol. There   were   already   three   retail

achieved   NCEA   Level   2   endorsed   with   Excellence   and   was   placed   the   top   grade-­point-­average   for   a   year   12   student  at  St  Paul’s  Collegiate  School   in  2012.” Miss   Reilly   gained   NCEA   Level   2   endorsed   with   Excellence   by   achieving   113   excellence   grades   of   her  total  134  credits.  This  achievement   sits   well   above   the   national   average;;   the   participation   level   needed �� to   achieve   NCEA   Level   2   is   60   credits.   She  also  achieved  a  100  per  cent  GPA   in   English,   chemistry   and   physical   education.

In  2011,  as  a  year  11  student,  Miss   5HLOO\ FRPSOHWHG ¿YH &DPEULGJH IGCSE  subjects  and  in  three  of  these   subjects  gained  90  per  cent  and  above   in   her   results.   She   also   impressively   gained   NCEA   Level   One   endorsed   with  Excellence.

For   both   the   adults   and   the   children’s   classes,   Dawn’s   strong   on   artistic   freedom.   The   music’s   loud   and   pumping,   she’s   up   the   front   of   St   Peter’s   church   hall   showing   the   steps   but   each   person   puts   their   own   ³ÀDYRXU´LQWRLW “Who   am   I   to   tell   anyone   they’re   doing  it  wrong?â€?

Having   all   but   burnt   out   back   in   her  Hamilton  studio  a  couple  of  years  

ago   while   teaching   everything   from   burlesque   to   jazz,   Dawn   came   to   Raglan  to  recuperate.  “I  literally  closed   myself  off  and  replenished.â€?   That   was   18   months   ago.   Now   the   44-­year   old   reckons   she’s   ÂłRYHUĂ€RZLQJ´ DJDLQ DQG QHHGV WR share,   thanks   to   the   healing   power   of   Raglan.   “Communities   that   share   music  are  strengthened  and  enriched,â€?   she  says. Dawn’s   not   only   teaching   dance   downtown   but   also   putting   the   word   out  there  for  some  sort  of  community   musical  performance  group  to  evolve.   And  she’s  recently  volunteered  several   hours   a   week   to   Raglan  Area   School   teaching  performance  art. She’s   here   with   her   family   –   a   partner,   three   children,   two   dogs   –   and   loves   the   lifestyle.   Six   years   ago   they   all   “jumped   with   both   feetâ€?   and   emigrated   from   the   UK,   to   see   what   would  happen.   And   yes,   Dawn’s   been   in   the   limelight   a   little   more   than   most.   Aside  from  her  West  End  appearances   she   also   once   impersonated   Canadian   country  pop  singer  Shania  Twain  in  the   British  version  of  the  television  talent   show  ‘Stars  in  Their  Eyes’.   Wearing   tailor-­made   leather   thigh   boots  with  top  hat  and  cane,  she  reckons   she   had   a   ball   with   her   rendition   of   ‘Man!  I  Feel  Like  a  Woman’.
