Halfway there

By Nikki Papatsoumas Wellington College are halfway towards seeing the doors open on their new Memorial Hall and Performing Arts Centre, and now they are looking forward to making things happen. In 2007 it was announced that Wellington College would begin fundraising for a new Memorial Hall and Performing Arts Centre, and seven years later the project,

or the ‘Raise the Roof’ campaign, remains in full swing. Wellington College Head of Development Tony Robinson says seeing the centre completed is important for two reasons. The Colleges current assembly hall was built in the late 1960’s to cater to the then roll of 800 students. Continued on page 2.

Halfway there By Nikki Papatsoumas However the current roll is now double this figure and Mr Robinson says the space is now proving inadequate as an assembly hall. As well as this the school’s current performing arts centre, the Brierley Theatre, can only house an audience of 160, and the new centre would allow for a much larger audience. “The idea is for this new building to be a flexible allpurpose building, to be both a meeting place but also a vibrant performing arts centre,” he says. The first stage of the project is expected to cost $8 million. So far the college has man-

aged to raise $3.5m through fundraising and donations, leaving them $4m short of their total goal. Mr Robinson says it has been a long process and the college is now determined to meet its stated goal. “It is high time that this project came to fruition and something happened.” He says ideally they would like to raise the remaining money in time to begin construction in December 2014, which would allow the centre to be up and running in time for the college’s 150 year celebration in 2017. He says completion of the project will not only benefit

the college, but the wider community. “It is the college’s intention that this will be able to be used by the public, as a public facility. Our aim is to share this with the community. “It will be a benefit to all the community of Wellington.” As part of their fundraising efforts, this Tuesday college students and staff will compete in a stationery ‘bikeathon’. The event, which is now in its second year, will see a team of staff and a team of students compete against each other by cycling for 24 hours on stationery bikes. “We wanted to think out of

the square and really attract attention to the Raise the Roof campaign,” Mr Robinson says. At the end of the bikeathon the college will then kick off a TradeMe auction which will feature 12 sports-only auction items. These include a full day of skiing with Olympian Simon Wi Rutene, and a coaching session with Black Cap cricketer Mark Greatbach. “We are very excited about this, there are 12 major sporting experiences available.”  For more information head to www.wellington-college.

Think outside the box when it comes to cycling By Nikki Papatsoumas Frocks on Bikes is a movement working towards normalising cycling as an everyday form of transport by being inclusive and encouraging everyone to jump on their bikes. Frocks on Bikes was formed in 2008 after a group of women took part in the annual ‘Go by Bike Day’. The women spotted each other across a sea of fluro, and realised they were all wearing normal clothes – Frocks on Bikes was born. Co-coordinator Christina Bellis, who is also part of the Wellington ‘mothership,’ says Frocks on Bikes began with a focus on climate change and women, but has evolved into so much more. “We wanted to create a niche for women and create a service that didn’t exist. But now it has become about sustainability, convenience, fitness and exercise for everyone.” The movement has proved to be so popular, groups have popped up around the country, and even across the Tasman.

Christina says she has been commuting by bike for the past 11 years, and part of the movement is encouraging people to think outside the box when it comes to cycling. “We don’t need to see cycling as a sport. It has been taken into a sport mentality but can be a recreation and it can be just a commute, you don’t have to get all sweaty. “People look beautiful out on their bikes, it’s a lovely image people happy on bikes.” They often have group rides, which Christina says are great for people who love to ride but are too scared to cycle on Wellington streets. “We are show don’t tell. We just get out there and do it and invite people to come along with us. The more people see others doing it they think ‘I could be doing that.’” They also offer street skill workshops for people who want to cycle but may feel nervous. The classes provide participants with bike handling skills, and help to build confidence.

Leah, Christina and Bella are part of the Frocks on Bikes mothership.

Frocks on Bikes will be presenting their ‘Wheel Stylish’ evening on Thursday November 14 and the fashion show comes complete with a twist-all models will be on bikes. Wheel Stylish will be held at the Sustainability Trust building, 2 Forresters Lane, Te Aro.

Tickets are $20 and there will be limited doors sales.  To make a booking contact For more information on the movement, head to www. wellington/

Empire Cinema to retire By Nikki Papatsoumas The Island Bay community was saddened to learn The Empire Cinema had closed its doors for good last Wednesday. The news came as a shock to many locals who were unaware the cinema, located on The Parade, was considering closing. The Empire offered three boutique cinemas, as well as a café and has been a popular spot for locals since opening eight years ago. It was refurbished after the original Empire Cinema closed its doors in the late 1960’s. Manager of the Penthouse Cinema in Brooklyn Iain Macleod says the closure is reflective of today’s market. “I think it’s sad when any business closes, and there is a lot of competition out there. It’s not just the cinemas that are having trouble, it’s the stadium, the

Reviving the Niue language By Nikki Papatsoumas Last week was the official Niue Language Week. The week was organised by the Niue Kaufakalataha Wellington Region Inc (NKWR), and is in its second year. Reverend Tom Etuata is now retired, but as chairman of the NKWR has helped to establish and organise the language week which runs from October 13 to 20. He says the purpose of the language week is to revive the language. “For most of our New Zealand born, English is their first language and most of them do not understand or speak the Niue language.


“We are under threat of our language becoming extinct if we do nothing about it.” Reverend Etuata says it is becoming easier for people from Niue to come and live in New Zealand, and a downside to this means a decline in population on their homeland. He says that while roughly 23,000 Niuean people live in New Zealand, Niue itself has a population of roughly 1,500. He says what is now important is encouraging New Zealand born Niueans to learn their culture and language through history, singing and entertainment. “As long as there is an island back home there will always

Mayor Celia Wade-Brown

By Robert Johnson Wellington Mayor Celia WadeBrown is looking forward to increasing public confidence in Wellington and the council after winning the mayoral race last Saturday. Ms Wade-Brown secured her second term as mayor after beating John Morrison by a majority of 2284 votes—finishing on 26,854 compared to Mr Morrison’s total of 24,570. She gave a celebratory ‘yahoo’ when receiving the call to confirm the result on Saturday evening and gave her husband

Wade-Brown secures second term a big hug. “The support I received from my husband and all those involved during the campaign and my first term as mayor was fantastic.” Ms Wade-Brown was happy with the clear majority, meaning special votes could not swing the result, allowing her to celebrate on the night. “It was nice to not have to wait three days for the result like last time. Those were the longest three days of my life,” she laughs. The mayor has spent the last

week meeting the councillors, both old and new, and is happy with what she has seen. “I’m very pleased with the make-up of the council. They are all very positive and enthusiastic and have some great ideas for a sustainable city.” She says despite a number of councillors having differing political affiliations, there are common goals among them all. “I’ve talked to councillors with a Green affiliation who are passionate about economic initiatives and are very ‘urban greens’. Those at the other end

of the political spectrum have shown interest in parks and reserves. There are definitely some shared goals.” Ms Wade-Brown says the goal for the next three years will be continuing the vision of a good economy and a sustainable city through attracting good quality jobs, saving money through shared services with other councils and improving public transport. “I’ve got a good grasp of the magnitude of this role now and am looking forward to increasing the confidence in our city,”

Council welcomes new faces By Nikki Papatsoumas The southern and eastern wards welcome two new faces to the council table. David Lee joins Paul Eagle as southern ward councillor, while Sarah Free will join Simon Marsh and Ray AhipeneMercer in the eastern ward. Both councillors ousted existing previous councillors, Mr Lee was elected over incumbent Bryan Pepperell in the southern ward, and Ms Free beat Leonie Gill in the eastern ward. Both new councillors say while campaigning they have managed to establish a good relationship with their communities, and they are now looking forward to the next three years. Mr Lee says he is “delighted” to have been elected. “I didn’t run with the expectation of losing, it wasn’t ‘let’s

have a bit of a go and test the water,’ I was all in now and that’s it.” Mr Lee says he wants begin by looking at implementing achievable cycle lanes beginning in the southern ward. He also says building relationships across council is important. “The most important thing is building relationships and connections within council, and then putting together a good programme for action for our southern ward.” Ms Free says she had no name recognition, so her win is the result of a hard campaign. “I knew I would have to campaign really hard to win people over. “I like to think we were elected because we did win people over with our skills and what we had to offer.”

The following candidates were elected to the Greater Wellington Regional Council. Wellington constituency (5 vacancies) Fran Wilde Chris Laidlaw Sue Kedgley Judith Aitken Paul Bruce Lower Hutt constituency (3 vacancies) Ken Laban Prue Lamason Sandra Greig Kapiti Coast constituency (1 vacancy) Nigel Wilson Wairarapa constituency (1 vacancy) Gary McPhee Porirua – Tawa constituency (2 vacancies) Jenny Brash Barbara Donaldson Upper Hutt constituency (1 vacancy) Paul Swain

The following candidates were elected to the Capital Coast District Health Board Sue Kedgley Chris Laidlaw Judith Aitken Nick Leggett Virginia Hope Helene Ritchie David Choat

Justin Lester appointed as Deputy Mayor David Lee and Sarah Free have both been elected to Wellington City Council.

Ms Free says now she will focus on the platforms she campaigned for, which includes cycling infrastructure, something she will try to make progress on as soon as possible. Both councillors stood as Green party candidates for the election, and say although they got in on a green ticket, they are now looking to work as a collective.

“It is very easy to label us, we are Green but I believe everyone has an element of ‘greenness,’” David says. “A lot of the other council will support many of our initiatives, whether they are Green or not,” Sarah says, “all the signs are we will be able to work really well together.”

Last Friday Mayor Celia Wade-Brown announced that Northern Ward councillor Justin Lester will be appointed as Deputy Mayor. The new deputy mayor is Wellington’s youngest councillor, and says he is excited at the opportunity to work with the mayor. “I’m honoured to be offered this role and will strive to do the best I can to serve the interests of all Wellingtonians, Mr Lester says. “We’ve got a large group of new councillors who are very talented and I look forward to working with them alongside the returning councillors.”

Iconic event in fifth year By Nikki Papatsoumas The Fabric-a-brac event, which has proven to be very popular, will return once again this year. The event, which is now in its fifth year, offers stall holders the opportunity to sell old fabric they have no use for, and is perfect for anyone who loves to sew and may be looking for unique fabrics. Stallholders at the event range from private sewers to small clothing, accessory or upholstery businesses. The Fabric-a-brac has proven so popular, people have even started their own events in other locations, including New Plymouth, Auckland and even Sydney and Brisbane. Founder of the Wellington event Josie Bren-

nan says she has always been a sewer, and was left with all of her mother’s fabric when she moved into a retirement home. “I looked at in despair, it would’ve taken years to have put it all up on Trade me. I realised I would rather sell it on to someone else who is enthusiastic about material and would use it. “It is fantastic for people who really want to find the best bargains but also the most unusual things.” The first event was held at the Brooklyn Community Centre in 2009, and Josie says the first year was so popular the centre filled up like a “fabric mosh pit.” After having a family Josie has stepped back from running the events, but says she remains

passionate about it. “It has turned into this lovely community thing, and it’s great for people to meet other people who are interested in fabric and sewing.” At this year’s event there will also be a table of donated fabric, with all

proceeds going towards the Hospice.  The fabric-a-brac will be held on Saturday November 9 at the St Anne’s Church Hall in Newtown. For more information head to www.

Spiral shaped garden takes shape By Nikki Papatsoumas A spiral shaped amphitheatre and garden has taken shape at the former Wellington Prison gardens on Mount Crawford. The artist John Overton, who is also spokesperson for the Save Mount Crawford Campaign, says he wanted to create an outdoor space for the community to enjoy. “I thought it would be nice to have a place where people could meet and discuss things in a tranquil setting. “The idea is it would be a garden, but also a venue for social and community gatherings. It also serves as a venue for small outdoor performances.” John says the land art work

was inspired by ‘Vortrovia Vision’ which is the vision of a sustainable eco-city. He says at the centre of the eco-city there is an amthenium, which is a spiral amphitheatre. John says this is the largest piece of art he has created. “I have done a few things like this one on a smaller scale, but this is the largest one I have done.” He says he would like to see more of the space transformed into a small art park, and encourages other people to come along and create more small outdoor installations.

Fancy Free at Orchestra Wellington Orchestra Wellington’s final subscription concert for the year shows two sides of American composer Leonard Bernstein, pairing the jazzy suite Fancy Free with his seriously philosophical Serenade for Violin. The concert also completes the orchestra’s cycle of overtures to Beethoven’s opera Fidelio. Bernstein likened his Serenade to Plato’s Dialogue, calling it “a series of related statements in praise of love”. To play it, Orchestra Wellington is pleased to welcome Natalia Lomeiko, who has been garnering rave reviews from The Strad since winning the Michael Hill Violin Competition a decade ago. Born into a family of musicians in Novosibirsk, Russia, Natalia Lomeiko has established herself internationally as a regular performing artist. She has appeared as soloist with the Royal and Tokyo Royal Philharmonics and her chamber music colleagues include Gidon Kremer, Yuri Bashmet and Dmitry Sitkovetsky. Four rimshots on the snare-drum launch Bernstein’s Fancy Free, a ballet suite filled with the rhythms and energy of New York’s Jazz Age. The 1944 ballet tells the adventures of three sailors on shore leave. They go to a bar (of course!), dance with girls they meet there, fight over them and finally make peace. The music gives a nod to Stravinsky’s motoric rhythms, but Fancy Free’s biggest influences are the streets and clubs of New York, pulsing with jazz, Latin rhythms and blues harmonies. Leonore No 3 was written for a revised

Gala a ‘Wonderland’ 1806 version of his opera Fidelio. It is a glorious tone poem with a heroic sweep picturing the opera’s journey from darkness to light. When the opera was revived in 1814, Beethoven wrote a completely new overture. Now known as Fidelio, it packs a mighty punch right from the fearless, leaping challenge of its opening chords. “Natalia Lomeiko is one of the most brilliant of our younger violinists” – Yehudi Menuhin Orchestra Wellington: Fancy Free Sunday November 17 4pm, Michael Fowler Centre

By Nikki Papatsoumas The Worser Bay School Gala is coming up in November and this year the theme will be ‘Welcome to Wonderland’. Wonderland was Miramar’s very own theme park and was opened in 1907 by Chase Morris Esq. It was located at the north end of Miramar near the present site of Camperdown Studios on the block bordered by Darlington and Camperdown Roads. The theme park went into liquidation in 1911, four years after opening. Now, Worser Bay School students, staff and families will transform the school into its very own wonderland on November 10. Worser Bay School principal Jude Pentecost says every year the school likes to try and stick with a theme that reflects

Miramar for their gala. “One of our school goals is celebrating our place, so that falls out of that, where we are in this beautiful location.” Ms Pentecost says this is the main event of the year, along with their ‘summer fest’ which is held earlier in the year, and a huge per cent of their school families get involved. Money fundraised will go towards the school’s new outdoor learning environment which is in the early stages of a ten year plan and towards professional development for staff and e-learning. The Worser Bay School ‘Welcome to Wonderland’ gala is on Sunday November 10 from 11am until 2pm. For more details head to the Worser Bay School Fair 2013 Facebook page.

Festival celebrates 20th year The Wattie’s Cans Film Festival is back for the twentieth year and this year’s line-up includes some of the most popular films of 2013, from the documentary on pop sensation One Direction, to the story of the high-flying air racer, Planes. On the night of Wednesday November 13, Kiwis across the country will have the opportunity to swap a

readers have their say... Find out the WORD on the Street. Q: How do you feel about Empire Cinema in Island Bay closing down last week?

Thomas Kernreiter Island Bay

Irene McLachlan Island Bay

Doug Dixon Island Bay

Sara Filoche Island Bay

Heather Bory Island Bay

“I didn’t know they were going to close down. It’s not good for Island Bay it is one of the places we could go to hang out.”

“I am pretty disappointed I really enjoyed going there. It was really out of the blue for us to see it had closed down.”

“I’m gutted, it was a really cool cinema we used to take the kids as well. I didn’t even know it was happening.”

“I am gutted, we would take the kids there in the school holidays, and me and the girls would go down in the evening. It seemed to happen so quickly.”

“It’s really sad, we just went there on Saturday. I didn’t go to often but it’s such a shame I feel really sorry for the workers.”

A blessing Dear Ed, I was touched by your story about the small puppy Noah, in last weeks Cook Strait News. (Cook Strait News 14 October 2013). What a gorgeous wee thing!

I loved the premise of blessing the animals and also making an adoption day of it. I do hope they found homes for some of their foster animals, it breaks my heart to see so many animals neglected and abandoned in such

horrible circumstances. Thank goodness for the kind souls that keep the SPCA running so these animals have a fighting chance. Kind Regards, T. McGee

Stay hydrated this summer While it's always a good idea to stay hydrated, it's especially important when the temperatures of summer start rising. Whether you're spending your vacation camping and hiking or just doing more outdoor daily activities like biking and walking, I've got some tips for how you can stay hydrated during the warm weather months. Eat your water. Chowing down on water-filled foods like watermelon, is an easy and refreshing way to keep hydrated. Swap soda for sparkling water. If you're trying to kick a soda habit, sparkling water is a healthy, but still fizzy, alternative. Hydrate before exercising. Be sure to drink water before exercising to maximize your workout.


Drink water on the plane. If you're traveling this Summer, don't forget to drink up the H2O on the plane. Stay hydrated at work. Even when working indoors, it's important to keep the fluids handy. There are five more ways, so read more. Drink water before meals. By drinking water before meals, not only will you stay hydrated but you're less likely to overeat. Have enough on hand. When you're spending the day camping or biking, it's important to bring enough water to last the trip. Spice it up with healthy flavouring. If you're having a hard time getting enough water, spice it up with some natural flavoring. Keep track of your daily water intake.

Hydrating prior to exercise is important in aiding your workout.

Here is some advice that will help you have fun with fashion as you get older. As we grow older our bodies often change and an important part of the aging process is to continue to celebrate your body, you just have to adapt your style to suit your body shape. Be an individual: Wearing a great cut of skirt or jean, together with a well-chosen top to flatter your skin tone and body, will set you on your way to looking good. Pay particular attention to how you wear colours and styles together. Quality over quantity: Choose well-made clothes. If this means buying less then so be it. Buy some good quality pieces of clothing which will form the basis of your wardrobe. Your wardrobe should reflect your own regard for yourself. Hold yourself in high esteem and use your clothes along with your grooming to communicate this. The right fit: Correctly fitting clothing is everything. Expensive and budget clothing can all look awful if they don’t fit properly so find a brand that gives you the best look. Clothing should gently skim your body, anything oversized will conceal any definition making you look like a sack of potatoes. Anything too tight will cling to your body. - Around the armholes. Is there any puckering or pulling? - Wherever buttons or fastenings meet. Are the areas between the fastenings exposing flesh? - Across your tummy. Is the garment riding up stretching or losing its shape?

Celebrities such as Jane Fonda show that despite your age, you can still look amazing with the right style of clothing to suit your figure.

- Across your behind and round your crotch. Trousers that are too tight pull and crease around the crotch. The eye will be immediately drawn here and you just don’t need that. - Around or across your bust. Does it make your breasts a strange shape when fastened? Is it riding up over the bust because there isn’t enough fabric in the design? - Across your back. It may be making tramlines in a fleshy back or not allowing you to swing your arms freely.

Nail health The shape and colour of your nails may be indicators of your health. Pale or bluish nails may indicate anaemia. If the pink colour is slow to return when the nail is squeezed, it may be a sign of decreased circulation. Clubbed nails shaped like the back of a

Less is more Have you ever noticed how some of your friends look best with no makeup at all? No matter your age, too much makeup makes you look worse. If you wear foundation, powder, blush, liner, mascara, eyeshadow, lip liner and gloss on an everyday basis, then you're overdoing it. Tone it down: All you really need is a great mascara, concealer for blemishes and gloss. Add a pop of blush in winter.

spoon may mean cardiopulmonary disease or asthma. Spoon nails which dip inwards could mean certain types of anaemia or injury. Pitted nails with punched-out spots may signal psoriasis.

Festival planned

Club welcomes new members

Ungu Capoeira has organised its first festival which will take place on Labour weekend from October 25 to 28. This festival includes workshops of Brazilian dances, capoeira, acrobatics and music. These workshops will be led by masters in capoeira and experienced dance teachers from all over the world. On top of that it also introduces the first New Zealand capoeira tournament. For more information

Coach Dave Wells, driver/crewman Paul Langman, crewman /driver Henry Williams, crewman Jack Malin and Neil Forbes Coach compete in the 90 Mile Beach Classic race in Northland.

By Nikki Papatsoumas The Worser Bay Surf Life Saving Club are a family orientated club who are welcoming new members as the summer months approach. The club, which currently has between 120 and 150 members, had their registration day on Sunday, and club days will continue to be held each Sunday from 2pm for the rest of the year. Club chair Grant Rae says this is the perfect opportunity for kids between the age of 7 to 13 to come in and register for nippers, where children will receive training towards their

junior surf achievement award. As well as the nipper programme for children under the age of 14, the club also runs regular life guard training courses. Anyone who is a competent swimmer above the age of 14 can learn to be a life guard, through a surf life guard training programme. Grant says they currently have 25 active life guards, and would love to increase this number by encouraging more people to get involved from a younger age. He says it is important to keep kids enthusiastic from a young

age, so they can train to become life guards when they reach the appropriate age. “It is action, fun and excitement. We can offer kids a whole range of life skills. It is not just about saving people it’s about mechanics, maintenance and team work.” He says good swimming and a reasonable fitness level are required, but you don’t have to be an athlete to be a life guard. “You don’t have to be an athlete to be a top life guard. It’s about being enthusiastic and be prepared to learn skills and discipline.”

As well as running these programmes the club also participates in carnival days across the Wellington region. The first nipper carnival day is being held on Sunday November 24 at Worser Bay Beach, and Grant says they are expecting between 150 to 200 children will participate from Worser Bay, Lyall Bay, Maranui, Titahi Bay, Paekakariki, Otaki and Riversdale.  For more information about the club, head to their website home
