GONE: The Central Regional Health School building at 46 Russell Terrace in Berhampore was demolished last week.

An unused health building in Berhampore was knocked down last week. The Central Regional Health School building at 46 Russell Terrace has not been used by the organisation since 2013 In recent months Cook Strait News readers had voiced their concerns about a relatively new building not being used. Weeds had started to grow, the building had been tagged and boards covered broken windows. According to the CRHS 2013 annual report there were long standing and unresolved leaky building issues with the building which had significant health

impacts on staff. The land in which the building occupied is owned by the Wellington Tenths Trust. Chairman of the trust, Morris Te Whiti Love, says the trust was prepared to re-purpose the building at their own expense for the trust’s use. The Central Regional Health School, which was established in 2000 to provide education for students with high health needs, is currently based on Thorndon Quay.  Should the building have been demolished?

Youngsters love their worms Continued from With the Lyall Bay Kindergarten wanting a new $5,000 sun shade the time is right for the excess stock of worm wees to be sold to fundraise for the shade. Nick says anybody after a supply of worm wees can either give the kindergarten a phone call or pay them a visit at their Apu Crescent location. With the bottle of worm wees being sold for a gold coin donation, Nick says it will take a lot of worms to pay for the sun shade. Cook Strait News paid the kindergarten a visit on Monday to learn more about the centre’s thriving worm farm. When asked if they like the worm farm, the children replied with a united ‘yes’. The children know what they can put into the worm farm, such as banana peels and apple cores, and what they cannot, such as orange peels and lolly wrappers. Nick says the children love the fact that the worm farm involves poos and wees at the end of the process. “They’re at that age,” he says. “That’s the most interesting

aspect for them.” The kindergarten often do cooking and baking and the children then get excited about putting the food scraps into the worm farm, Nick says. The children learn many

things from the worm farm, including about recycling, the environment, the science around the process and how to be in touch with nature, Nick says. “It’s a huge learning experi-

ence for them.” Tiger worms are the variety of worms that occupy the Lyall Bay Kindergarten worm farm. One young girl says she does not like tiger worms because they are scary.
