An excited five-year-old has strapped on her backpack and traded in her playdough for pencils in preparation for her first day at school. Monera Farao had her very first day at Miramar Central School on Monday. Having only had a small taste of school life, Monera said so far, her favourite thing to do was “go outside”. Her mother, Jeanette Farao said she was “nervous and excited” when the school bell rang on Monday, signalling the start of her daughter’s school career. Continued on page 2 Monera Farao started at Miramar Central School on Monday.

Minister for State Owned Enterprises Todd McClay, Mayor of Wellington Celia Wade-Brown and Airways New Zealand chief executive Ed Sims, turning the first sod of dirt at the site for Wellington’s new air traffic control tower during a blessing ceremony last Wednesday.

The construction site for Wellington’s very own ‘leaning tower’ was blessed at a special ceremony last Wednesday. Last year, Air navigation service provider, Airways, announced it was building a new air traffic control tower at Wellington Airport. The tower will replace an existing 58-year-old tower situated in a residential area overlooking the airport. Airways said the tower will be an iconic new landmark for Wellington, designed to lean into the prevailing northerly wind at an angle of 12.5 degrees, combining strong and safe structure with excellent functionality and urban design.

Consent for the building was granted last year. At last week’s ceremony, Airways New Zealand held an iwi-blessing. Mayor of Wellington Celia Wade-Brown, State Owned Enterprises Minister Todd McClay and the chief executive of Airways Ed Sim, were on hand at the ceremony to turn the first sod of dirt at the site. “Our tower will not only meet current and future demands of the city, but will also be an iconic Wellington landmark we can all be proud of,” Ed said. Construction is due to be complete in July 2017, before the tower is commissioned in October 2017.

First day of school Continued from page 1 “She was fine, it was me that found it hard to let go of her. “I was expecting her to cry and be clingy to me but she just gave me a kiss and cuddles and said ‘bye mum’.” Monera was one of more than 10,000 five-year-olds across the country who started school this week. Over the course of the year, another 52,000 children will also begin school for the very first time. Miramar Central School principal John Taylor-Smith said they had 10 children join the school’s new entrant class on Monday. He said the first day of school was always a “big thing for kids”. “Most kids go to preschool and they get weaned a bit about routines and being

together… then at school it’s about future focus principles. “They have to figure out who they are and where they fit in in the world. “Really before they are five it is all about me, my needs and my parents meet my needs, but of course when they get to school they have to learn they are part of the world.” This week, Education Minister Hekia Parata also wished children and young people well as they prepared to pick up their school bags and head to school. “I hope kids are feeling full of beans after the summer break and looking forward to the challenges of a new year.” Just over three quarters of a million children returned to schools across the country this week, she said.

do swimming classes with their children. It is a great activity and fantastic for bonding.” Child safety advisor at Plunket, Sue Campbell, said it was good news that parents were taking the opportunity to visit pools with their young families and

engage in safe water play. “Getting into the water with your baby is a learning experience for both of you – your baby is learning about the water, and you’re learning how you can be safe together in the water,” she said.

Sue said water confidence lessons were a great way to consolidate learning about how to be safe in water for both children and their parents.  For more information on water confidence classes, head to • Superior energy efficiency • Tough and durable • Low maintenance • New Build, Retro Fits • Free measure and quote • Full installation service

Fire strikes at seaside cafe Oriental Bay came to a standstill on Monday following a fire at a popular local cafe. Emergency services were called to the scene of the fire at Beach Babylon cafe shortly after 9am. The New Zealand Fire Service later reported that the fire had started in the kitchen, spreading up the walls and ceilings of the building. After several hours, fire crews managed to extinguish the fire

and dampen hot spots. At one stage there were at least 10 fire trucks at the scene and staff members and customers were quickly evacuated from the eatery. On the Beach Babylon Facebook page, staff described the fire as a “wee incident”. “We had a wee incident at Babylon today. Everyone is fine. Thanks to everyone for their messages of support. Not sure of damage yet. We will be closed

for the rest of the day obviously, and will keep everyone updated as to when we reopen.” Staff said after an assessment they hoped to open their doors soon.

Parents are being urged to ensure their kids are confident in the water from a young age. Currently, staff from swimming pools across Wellington are hitting the pavement and encouraging parents to get their children involved in learn to swim classes. ‘Waterbabies’ classes are available at the Wellington Regional Aquatic Centre in Kilbirnie for children between the ages of six months to three years old. The classes focus on the enjoyment of water and allow tots to develop awareness and skills. Parents are also asked to join in lessons with their children. Wellington Regional Aquatic Centre programmes team leader, Selina Murray said 180 children were taking part in learn to swim programmes at Kilbirnie pools. “We’ll have more when the term starts to ramp up. We have been doing a big push out in the community,” she said. “A lot of people are not even necessarily aware that they can

Kate SevickeJones and her “coral reef” themed hidden garden.

Explore the capital’s hidden gardens By Nikki Papatsoumas

Locals are encouraged to take a closer look at the city they live in. Seven ‘hidden gardens’ have been planted across the capital as part of Wellington City Council’s hidden gardens initiative. Each of the seven gardens have been designed and planted by budding horticulturist apprentices working within the council. Project coordinator, Ali Whitton, said the idea came following an internal competition set up within the Parks, Sport and Recreation Department at the council, which encouraged people to share their bright ideas. This year as part of the Hidden

Gardens initiative, the seven selected apprentices had to come up with a concept, then design and plant their very own garden to “brighten dark corners of Wellington”, Ali said. They were each given $500 to spend on their gardens from a training and development fund. “They have been in charge right from conception of an idea and they have each been given a mentor from within council.” Apprentice Kate Sevicke-Jones has used succulents and cacti to create a “coral reef” themed garden. “It is just a visual thing I wanted to do, something kind of fun. I have a creative background with an arts degree.” She said the garden was assembled

last week and then transported to its secret location. “There were aspects of it that were harder than I thought it would be, but towards the end it was enjoyable seeing it come together. “It has been nice to revisit a creative aspect within my current job,” she said. From Monday, Wellingtonians were invited to decipher a series of riddles and uncover the locations of each of the hidden gardens. “I feel really good about it and I hope other people can get some enjoyment out of it as well,” Kate said.  For more information, head to hidden-gardens

Cycle, skate or scoot next weekend By Nikki Papatsoumas

Thousands of people are expected to cycle, skate, scoot and explore Wellington’s coast next weekend. On Valentine’s Day, roads will be closed to motorists from Shelly Bay to Scorching Bay, along the Miramar Peninsula. as part of the annual Ciclovia event. Ciclovia is a worldwide movement, which sees roads and footpaths closed down so people can experience the city they live in, in a different way. Ciclovia organiser Ron Beernink said seeing all sorts of people having fun together, or on their own, was what made all the hard work worth it. “People don’t realise what is involved in making something like Ciclovia a success. Luckily we have a committee of enthusiastic volunteers.” Local woman Miranda Struthers said she took part in the event two years ago with her daughter, son and husband. She said it was a great way for children to become more confident on their bikes. “Last year was the first time my son had done it by himself it is a great environment with no traffic to contend with. “They feel independent that they are partaking on their own, it’s really great for their confidence.” Miranda said because the roads

remained closed throughout the day it was a “pleasant environment to cycle in”. “It’s great just being able to enjoy the coastal ride, it’s pretty magical. We’re pretty lucky in a capital to have access to the outdoors like that.” Ciclovia is sponsored by the Wellington City Council through its Communities on Bikes fund. This covers costs like traffic

Performance Arcade From left, chief executive of Sustainability Trust, Philip Squire, chief executive of Wellington Zoo, Karen Fifield, Wellington Zoo conservation manager, Daniela Biaggio, and Sustainability Trust energy performance specialist and business developer, Jonathan Parker.

Going solar at Wellington Zoo Wellington Zoo is taking the next step to further reducing carbon emissions by installing 48 new solar panels. On February 1, monocrystalline PV modules will be installed on the zoo’s front entrance building. The installation of these solar panels will save the zoo the same amount of power used by one and a half average households per year. Chief executive Karen Fifield said as a conservation organisation, the zoo worked hard to save animals in the wild and worked towards reducing the effects of climate change, which was a major threat to wildlife worldwide. “Reducing our carbon emissions is important to minimising our impact on climate and protecting our environment from further harm.” The initiative follows many other actions Wellington Zoo has taken to reduce its

carbon footprint, such as large scale composting and waste reduction and collecting over 300,000 litres of rain water each year. “We’re proud to showcase our environmentally conscious practices to our community. “We’ve been sharing our sustainability journey with visitors to show how choices each person makes at home and at work can help to reduce their own carbon footprint.” The installation of the zoo’s solar panels was managed by the Sustainability Trust, she said. Wellington Zoo became the world’s first carboNZero certified zoo in May 2013, after a five year programme of emissions reductions. Since first achieving certification, Wellington Zoo has reduced emissions by ten tonnes.

The Performance Arcade is an annual Live Art mini-festival and programme of free events located on Wellington Waterfront. Using a series of architecturally arranged shipping containers, the Arcade creates a string of spaces for installation,

performance art, sonic art, audio-visual art, interactive media, culinary art and live music. The Performance Arcade will take place from March 2 to 6. For more information head to

He’s a tiny person with a brain the size of a planet. “I also have Kate who comes and tidies my world once a week.

Q: What is your favourite flavour icecream?

Lionel Campbell Kilbirnie

Joanna Yiannoutsos Kilbirnie

Barbara Polly Newtown

Vee Liolis Kilbirnie

Ulla Preston Kilbirnie

“I am a diabetic, but if they had a diabetic icecream, all of the flavours would be my favourite.”

“Blueberry and Raspberry – those two with the ripple.”

“Chocolate. I love chocolate everything. I would eat anything if it had chocolate on it.”


“Liquorice. I love liquorice icecream and I wish it was available in New Zealand. It is fantastic.”

Kitty Morris-Hollis Kilbirnie “Chocolate. It’s a classic.”

LETTERS to the editor Prices and hikes Dear Ed, When I go to the supermarket to buy a bag of rice I pay the price displayed. Even when I go a wholesaler, it clearly states that the 15 per cent GST is still to be paid. But if I want to go to a concert and see the price advertised, I am charged some undefined surcharge when I go to Ticketek or any other inevitable agent. Why can the organisers

Nail on the head advertise a price and then allow it to escalate? It is worse than scalpers, at least they tell me the cost up front. When I bought a ticket recently I asked the vendor If I had to pay to use the exit door – she seemed surprised at my question, yet I feel the extortion element the same (I had to use the door to get on with my lifewhy not charge for that as well?)

When a concert is advertised, surely the cost of advertising, use of the building, even the security and usher staff are known and reflect in the charge. Surely the cost of selling the ticket is no different. I find the subsequent extra cost increase offensive and tantamount to a ransom. If I walked with my ticket into the concert hall I could by the

same reasoning be expected to pay for my seat or access via the lobby or stairs. I have stopped attending many concerts because of this hidden, clipping the ticket, charge. It will affect my future attendances and should do the same to other concert and event goers Paul Franken Strathmore Park

Dear Ed, L. Alliston of Island Bay (Letter, January 28) says “I don’t have any issues with driving more slowly and carefully” now that the road is narrower with the new cycleway. This thought hits the nail on the head. Future less carbon intensive city transport will be a more relaxed affair with car drivers toning down. It’s a simple move away from the established total car dominance of the public throughways. Richard Keller Wellington

Waitangi celebrations better than ever This year, Waitangi Day celebrations are set to be bigger than ever. The annual celebration, Te Ra O Waitangi, will once again be presented by Wellington City Council this Saturday at Waitangi Park. Mayor of Wellington, Celia Wade-Brown, said she was looking forward to this year’s celebrations. “Wellington’s Waitangi Day is always a positive experience. The treaty recognises a unique partnership between Maori and Pakeha. “Performances that feature traditional Maori culture and evolving art forms will provide a display of the many talents on show.” Councillor Paul Eagle said Te Ra o Waitangi was always a summer highlight. “It’s a chance for every Wellingtonian to have a Maori experience and celebrate the day in their own special way. “It’s not just the kapa haka, dance and this year’s headliner acts I’m looking forward to, I’d check out the Maori kai – whitebait fritters and hangi.” Performers this year include the Ngati Poneke


inbrief news Funding initiative Innovative Wellingtonians can now apply for funding to get their waste reduction initiatives off the ground, with applications for the latest round of the Waste Minimisation Seed Fund open. The Waste Minimisation Seed Fund was set up in November 2015 for projects that target the reduction of organic, commercial and industrial waste, and influence community action and behaviour change. The $70,000 per annum fund is split into two pools: funding for projects less than $2000 and another for larger projects over $2000, with a $25,000 cap.  For more information head to

BACK -Milla EllisWood (Khandallah)Erica Painter (Ngaio) Lara Strong (Miramar) Georgia Stephen (Khandallah) FRONT - Anderley Stevens (Ngaio) Darcey Wilson Hill (Khandallah) Zayneb Zerzouri (Island Bay)in Degas Reconstructed Last day - last class - at Cuba Street before the earthquake strengthening goes in!

DANCE in CUBA STREET We live in a world of busyness and work and the value of the arts is even more important to our wellbeing and to young people growing up. Learning, doing, collaborating, being in performances as part of a cast, developing confidence, self- responsibility and discovering that perseverance and commitment bring huge satisfaction and positive results are essential skills in the big picture of life’s experience. All this and it is fun!

A Wellington treasure, the studios at 125 Cuba Street continue a wonderful tradition of growing up with the arts - dancing. 2015 was an exceptional year with Chinese New Year, Pavlova’ s Twisty Thursday , CubaDupa , Wellington’s150th birthday , Tempo Festival in Auckland, Artsplash, The Attic Opening and two new ballets, The Very VERY Hungry Caterpillar and Degas Deconstructed at the Opera House to finish the year. RAD and

IDTA results were very successful for the many students who took examinations and a wide range of community and adult classes continue late into every evening. The Tarrant Dance Studios celebrated the Cuba St building being 100 years old and Footnote New Zealand Dance was 30! 2016 starts with six dancers from The Little Egrets Company who are coming from Xiamen to make a collaborative work with us for the Chinese New Year in February.

Tarrant Dance Studios

Directed by Deirdre Tarrant the new work is called Monkey Business for the Year of the Monkey and will be in an East Meets West spectacular at TSB Arena on Feb 13 as well as at the Stadium at the Phoenix Game on February 7th. CubaDupa happens once again in March and this year the dancers are creating a series of ‘happenings’ called Cuba Spaces. Summer has been fabulous in Wellington and the studios are in the completion phase of major earthquake

strengthening so classes are starting a little later this year. February 20 is the day! It is very exciting and we are very keen to get back up those stairs and into the studios dancing again! From the littlest dancing strawberry in The Very VERY Hungry Caterpillar to outstanding senior students going onto tertiary study and careers the Tarrant Dance Studios is a great place to be a dancer!

Inspiring dance classes Dance teacher Fiona Haines says ballet has changed a lot over the past 20 years of her teaching, and certainly since she was a girl studying it herself. The Royal Academy of Dance has a beautiful new syllabus now that uses props and imagination along with the most inspiring orchestral music. It is a real pleasure to teach and watch the love of dance grow in students. Her academy is run from both Brooklyn and Karori suburbs. Along with

Jazz, Contemporary and RAD Ballet, she runs Fairy Ballet classes for pre-schoolers which involves stories and mimes for each class. The children love the acting side of ballet, and not just the younger ones, the older students can’t wait to find out what parts they will be playing each year in our productions. Past productions include Wizard of Oz, Cinderella, Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan, Snow Goose and many more.

Dancing with is one the thing, but dancing with the is another.


Wellington Dance opens new City studio heart

We’re excited to have a new studio in Fifeshire Ave off Cambridge Terrace near the Basin Reserve. This is as well as our Thorndon studio and our local hall classes in Seatoun and Khandallah. Our new studio is an old ballroom dance school with two studios, a lovely feel and lots of

natural light. We have lots of classes for preschoolers and beginners (ballet and jazz) plus exciting new dance acrobatics for ages 7 years and up! Parking is available on the street, either Fifeshire, Barker St (next street towards the Basin) or on Cambridge Terrace.

Looking for a dance class for yourself or for your child? Royal Academy of Dance teachers are trained to teach dance following a carefully structured syllabus which is fun and safe, enabling students to progress in planned stages. Dance training offers many additional
