Mani Malaeulu speaks to attendees of the Development Wainuiomata business breakfast

Mani Malaeulu speaking on ‘‘helping the youth of Wainuiomata to become the best version of themselves through mentoring and enabling”. Mani joined Key Skills Recruitment Agency to work with young job seekers a year ago after managing the Wainuiomata office of Baywide Credit Union. He said he worked with the Futures programme at Wainuiomata High School and created Beyond Futures to take school leavers to a new level of self-development and work skills. Mani’s key messages were to know yourself, be yourself and back yourself. “These principles apply to anyone, who can use their strengths to help someone else

or the community”, he said. President of Development Wainuiomata, Margaret Willard said it was gratifying to see the growing numbers of people attending the business breakfast and the connections made in the community. “From the buzz in the room it’s clear there’s a lot of energy for positive growth in the valley, and it’s terrific that Development Wainuiomata is playing an active part in it”, she said. She said there were plans afoot for membership deals, with further opportunities for local business benefits.  For more information phone Clive Cannons on 564 8618 or Margaret Willard on 027 363 2967.

“Prestigious appointment” for local

Continued from page 1 Rawiri said the international group looks at a lot of policies surrounding HIV and AIDS from the United Nations and the board is committed to helping people with HIV and AIDS have “access to good treatment across the world”. Rawiri said it was a privilege to be nominated for this “prestigious appointment”. He said he was most looking forward to being involved with “policy development at quite a high level,” and “ensuring strategies are in place to reach what the group was trying to achieve.” He said he is now a “fully fledged” member of the board

and attended his first board meeting via Skype a few weeks ago. The group meets in person once a year. Rawiri said this year the meeting will be in South Africa and will tie in with the International AIDS conference in the same location in July. Rawiri’s interest in HIV and AIDs work came from his previous work in the drugs and alcohol sector. He is keen to spread knowledge of the issues around HIV and AIDS and stop the stigma surrounding the illnesses. “It’s fascinating… it’s not something you can walk away from.”

Beloved head teacher departs kindy By Emma McAuliffe

The head teacher of Arakura Kindergarten will be leaving in coming weeks to take up a head teaching job at Taita Kindergarten. Kaye Goodall has been with Arakura Kindergarten for six years. During this time the kindergarten has been awarded their Gold Healthy Heart Award for promoting healthy living in families and they are currently working towards their Bronze Enviroschools award. Her influence has also seen the kindergarten work towards remodeling its playground, opting for a more naturalistic look. “The kids will be able to use the playground in much more versatile ways,” Kaye said.

Kaye said she has enjoyed her time at Arakura and was sad to leave. She said the biggest highlight for her has been “how accepting and welcoming the community is”. “The families really care,” she said. Of her move to Taita, Kaye said she was looking forward to “building a team that’s really strong”. “[I want to build] a really high quality learning environment; one that kids are free to explore and cement their own space.” Arakura kindergarten will be having a farewell afternoon tea for Kaye on Thursday. Kaye said the idea was lovely. “It’s been an amazing journey here. It’s a fantastic kindy. The team are fantastic here.”

Business helps rid homes of wasps By Emma McAuliffe


Paul Chapman, Director of Pestproof Pest Control, is offering Wainuiomata residents at residential lots in urban areas 15 per cent off his regular price to get rid of their wasp nests. Paul said wasps were the biggest pest problem at this time of year and he received around eight calls regarding them a day. If new wasp nests are discovered six months after he has disposed of them he will get rid of them for free, he said. He said Wainuiomata residents should choose to go with him as not only will they save money; it’s better for the environment and cheaper for the competition as they won’t have to spend money on petrol by driving over the hill. Paul also relocates bumble bee nests

from people’s homes. He recommended residents to “leave bumble bees alone if they can” as they do not sting as often as wasps and they are good for the environment. “However sometimes people have to have them go, he said” In this case Paul said he tries to relocate the bumble bee nests and keeps them at his home or gives them to others to pollinate their gardens. He also relocates honey bee swarms for free or finds a local beekeeper to do so. While wasps are the biggest problem for summer, Paul said he also deals with “ants, rats, mice, fleas roaches and bed bugs.” “This time of year we get everything.”  For more information contact Paul on 04 589 2101 or 021 755 085.

Neighbours Day Aotearoa is taking place on March 19 and 20. The day is a celebration of neighbourhoods and encourages people to go out and meet their neighbours. For more information or to register go to www. If you are hosting a Neighbours Day event Wainuiomata News would love to hear about it. Email

Hutt kids love their books this summer Over 600 children took part in Hutt City Libraries’ Big Read programme, reading more than 3800 books over summer. As part of the programme over 870 challenges were completed. Hutt City Libraries Manager Sandra Mann said, “Feedback from families has been fantastic. Parents have said they appreciate their children having something to do in the Hutt over summer. We’ve also had lots of families pleased kids can take the books with them on holidays. Kids have excitedly emailed us about their reading while tramping on Stewart Island and hanging out in Rotorua.”

Future’s Programme looking for funding in new year

Celebrate your local parks with Parks Week From March 5 to 13 there will be a range of activities across many of Lower Hutt’s favourite parks as part of this year’s Parks Week. Hutt City Council has teamed up with the New Zealand Recreation Association and Parks and Leisure Australia for a trans-Tasman celebration of local parks and the vital role they play in our communities. Events are listed on the Hutt City Council website’s events section and on Facebook.

National List MP, Chris Bishop with Future’s Programme leader Bill Sharpe.

Wainuiomata’s Futures programme is looking for support as they kick off for the year. Run by Bill Sharpe the programme is dedicated to growing young men into good athletes and great people. It is now in its tenth year and currently has around 20 to 25 boys participating. Bill said the programme had the boys “train for an hour, have a cooked breakfast, do the washing up then talk about life skills before school”. “It’s a programme that’s evolving,” he said. The boys often join the programme for sports training, however, Bill said the more important aspect of the Futures was to change the boys’ attitudes towards life. “I’m not trying to make you a better sports man; I’m trying to make you a better person,” he said. National list MP based in Hutt South, Chris Bishop, is a

supporter of the programme. He has been to see the training and believes its “obvious the difference it’s making in [the boys] lives”. “Common to all of them was the determination and enthusiasm… it’s a great programme we need more programmes like it.” Chris and Bill are looking to the community to support the programme - which is in desperate need of funds for the boys’ breakfasts. They are grateful to Clive Cannons the Chemist for helping fund some aspects of the programme and to the Wainuiomata Rugby League Club for supporting them. Chris has also made a donation to help the group start back up for the year, however, said the group needs something more sustainable. “The programmes run off the smell of an oily rag,” Chris said. Bill agreed. “Every little bit of funds help,” he said.

C.O.R.D. group celebrates 22 years By Emma McAuliffe

The Wainuiomata C.O.R.D. group celebrated their birthday last week with a special meeting and afternoon tea. The C.O.R.D. group is a support group for people with breathing problems. They meet in the Community Centre once a month and have special talks from various groups around the region. This month they had a talk from Alan Shaw, Hutt Hospital respiratory nurse, who spoke about breathlessness.

Group coordinator, Genevieve Young, said the group was happy to be in the position to present a cheque to the volunteer fire brigade to assist them with the “valuable work” they do for the community. The group finished their celebrations with an afternoon tea provided for by various members of the group. Patsy Manu, the group secretary and treasurer, cut the birthday cake. She said she really enjoyed the birthday. “It was terrific”, Patsy said.

The C.O.R.D. group started in Wainuiomata in 1994. Genevieve said the group was originally based in the Parkway Community House but has been based at the Wainuiomata Community centre “for many years now.” “The community centre has been very good to us.” Genevieve said. It has 20 people on the members list. Genevieve said she enjoys the meetings with the group. “They’re great people here… wonderful people. They really support each other”

There will be a youth talent festival taking place in Wainuiomata next Saturday. Wainuiomata youth group, the Hashtags, will be hosting the “Get Your Talent On” youth talent festival at the Queen Street Reserve on Saturday March 19. Group member, Kazmia Morgan-Rako, described the event as a “youth day where you can share your talents.” Group facilitator Te Puea Morgan said it was open to any talent “from crafts to singing to… instruments” and the event will be a chance for youth to see what

is happening in the valley. She said many youth focused groups in Wainuiomata will be in attendance including the Girl Guides and Scouts. There will also be a performance by Wainuiomata High School’s Stage Challenge group, she said. While the group said the event is not a quest or competition they hope to give out spot prizes to participants and are looking for sponsors to be able to do so. The Hashtags have been involved in the community for some time and have participated in Smokefree Cars campaigns around Wainuiomata.

They said hope the day will be a chance for people in the community to meet. One member, Vicki Krech, said the event would be “like a huge community bonding day.” Ruby Gardner added the day would include “different people from different cultures” and would “include everyone together”.

Hutt City health centres to expand to Fitzherbert Road location Hutt City Health Centre (HCHC) will be taking over the premises and patient care at Fitzherbert Road Medical this Easter. The changeover comes after the retirement of current practitioners Dr. Peter Raudnic and his wife, nurse and practice manager Maureen Raudnic. The pair have serviced the Wainuiomata community for many years and opened the Fitzherbert Medical in 1991. HCHC will be moving their premise at The Strand to the Raudnic’s Fitzherbert Road location and will obtain their patients. The new location will be a combined practice for the current

patients at Fitzherbert Medical and the patients at HCHC’s current Wainuiomata location. HCHC was established by Dr Philip Harrison in central Lower Hutt in 2009. Since then it has expanded to it’s premises in Raroa Road and took over Strandcare in Wainuiomata in 2013. “HCHC is committed to providing high quality health care to patients throughout the Hutt Valley, we believe in maintaining primary care services in Wainuiomata”, said Dr Harrison. There will be two doctors and two nurses on site each day at the new practice.

Patients will benefit from walk in clinics where acute medical problems are seen without an appointment. All patients enrolled with HCHC can elect to visit their GP at the Raroa Road premise in Lower Hutt, ensuring convenient access to medical attention for Wainuiomata residents that work in central Lower Hutt. “Wainuiomata has a warm, distinctive and special feel to it, and our team love working here. While we are all very sorry to see the Raudnic’s retire, we look forward to expanding our care to residents of the area”, said Dr Harrison.

Incensed Dear Ed, As many residents are aware some years ago local artist(s) did a fantastic mural on the outside of derelict shops in the Village, depicting Tana Umaga and Piri Weepu. At the time many of us held our collective breath in case our local scallywags (for want of a better name)

defaced it with graffiti but thankfully they never have. Therefore I was absolutely incensed to see that our "Do Gooders" in the form of the "Save TPPA" committee have seen fit to paste one of their notices on this wall - how dare they? I assume these people are an organised group and would

suggest therefore that their leader needs to ensure that the perpetrator is suitable chastised and then sent down to immediately remove this notice, hopefully without further damage to the mural. Shame on you. Joyce Lockyer Wainuiomata

Kindergarten hosts annual umu By Emma McAuliffe

Contributor to

Pencarrow Kindergarten hosted their annual umu last Friday. Head teacher Dawn Summers described the day as “full on” and said the day “went really well”. “There was an abundance of food,” she said. The umu fires were started at 6.30am and narrowly avoided being caught in the current fire ban across Hutt City, that began at 8am the same morning. “We were very lucky,” Dawn said. The kindergarten was also lucky to have their umu on a sunny day and the children were able to enjoy eating their lunch outside, she said. Dawn said roughly 70 people attended on the day. This is the kindergarten’s fourth annual umu and is one of their events hosted to celebrate the diversity of the cultures present at Pencarrow Kindergarten. The umu in particular celebrates the Samoan culture. Kindergarten staff said it was the perfect opportunity for parents, grandparents and past parents to pass their knowledge down to the younger generation.

Students off to Tempe

Taylor Snow, Ariana Randall and Krishna McQueen pose with the Tempe City flag. PHOTO: Supplied.

By Emma McAuliffe

Two Wainuiomata High School Students will be going on an exchange to Arizona in July. Wainuiomata High School Head Girl, Ariana Randall, and Student Leader Krishna McQueen are taking part in the Hutt City Council’s Tempe Exchange Programme. Tempe is Lower Hutt’s sister city. Joining them is Hutt Valley High School student Taylor Snow. Krishna said she was excited when she found out she had been admitted to the programme. “I cried. I was so excited. Even my mum cried,” she said. Krishna said she is most looking forward to the opportunity to experience the culture, see how everything works and meet people from around the world. Ariana said she was looking forward to seeing how different the lifestyles of Arizona and Lower Hutt are and hopes this trip will “inspire

more travel in the future”. As part of the programme the students will each have an exchange student to show around New Zealand for five weeks. They have not met the people they will exchange with yet. They will then spend five weeks in America with their exchange partner, arriving in the city of Tempe in time for the Fourth of July. The three will have the chance to go to Disneyland and will experience a day of American schooling as part of their five week expedition. While the Hutt City Council have helped the trio significantly with their trip they have also had to fundraise themselves. Fundraising efforts so far include cleaning and doing security for the stadium, gardening for businesses and hosting sausage sizzles and garage sales. The students said there would be more sausage sizzles coming up should the community wish to donate to the trip.

Valuable retail skills learnt at The Warehouse By Emma McAuliffe

The Wainuiomata Warehouse and Wainuiomata High School have banded together to help youth learn valuable skills in customer service. As part of Wainuiomata High School’s Vocational Pathway learning, four students are currently working at the Warehouse once a week. School Gateway Broker, Liz Goldsworthy, said it was a chance for the girls to “put retail theory that they are learning in school into practice”. Students Shawnie-Lee Ryder, Andraya Valster, Lavaea Lia and Haylee Anderson, will be at The Warehouse for another 10 weeks. One of the Warehouse Service Team Leaders, Crissie Lightfoot, said the girls had all been “amazing” so far and the team has been “really enjoying having them here”. The girls have only just started their work with The Warehouse yet already

have learnt about hazards, recovery, store standards and how to provide excellent customer service. Crissie said the students were treated as employees while carrying out work experience. “We treat them like we treat our team,” Crissie said. The students have been enjoying their opportunity so far. Shawnie-Lee, said it had so far, been “real fun”. “I’ve learned so much today in just a few hours.” The Warehouse Wainuiomata and Wainuiomata High School have been in partnership through the Gateway programme for 18 months. Crissie believed it was an important partnership because it gave students the opportunity to start in the employment sector and gain important skills. She said she hoped the girls would take away confidence from their time at The Warehouse.

Wainuiomata High School students took part in Community Service days last month. From February 22 to 26, year 9 students had three days of Aspire Camp followed by two days of community service. The boys and girls took part in the community service separately. Community service undertaken by students included cleaning up rubbish in the area, hosting a bake sale at the

Wainuiomata Shopping Centre and baking scones and cookies for residents at the Woburn Masonic Home in Lower Hutt. Students also took part in “Spreading Summer Colour” by creating smiling seed pots they would later give to homes surrounding the school, as thanks for being part of the Wainuiomata High School neighbourhood. Deputy principal Janette Melrose said the week went “really well” and the students did some “really good things for their community”.

The winners and runners up of the Hall Cup shake hands

Tennis Club celebrates a year of fun By Emma McAuliffe

Late last month the Wainuiomata Tennis Club celebrated its annual Family Fun Tournament. The Club hosts this family tournament every year and invites its junior members to play games with their family members. At the end of the day two cups are awarded to the top family doubles teams in both of the junior sections the Dulux Cup for the five to nineyear-olds and the Hall Cup for 10

to 14-year-olds. This year the winners of the Hall cup were Elesha and Adam Smith. The runners up were Katie and Joe Easthope. The winners of the Dulux Cup were Jayden and Mike Fryer. The runners up were Nicole FoskettHay and Jae Lee Stapp. Wainuiomata Junior Tennis Convener Julie Day said “the courts were full the whole time” the tournament took place. “We couldn’t have got a better

day,” she said. • Junior Tennis is still running and will continue in to autumn. The younger juniors play on Wednesday evenings and older juniors on Tuesday evenings. • The tennis club hosts a club night every Thursday evening for members and non-members to play. The evenings cost $5 for non-members of the club.  For more information visit www.

Macro enthusiasm for Micro-Triathlon The Micro-TriAbility Triathlon took place last Friday and served as an introduction to multi-sports and triathlon for people of all abilities. The Hutt Valley Disabled Resources Trust (HVDRT) TriAbility Triathlon is an event that supports people with physical, intellectual, developmental, neurological and sensory disabilities. It is run by the HVDRT in partnership with Sport Wainuiomata Inc (SWI). Event manager, Charlie Holland, emphasised it is not just an event for disabled people, but for all abilities allowing experienced, social and aspiring triathletes to compete side-by-side as part of a larger social change campaign to shift attitudes and change behaviours towards disabled people within our communities. Hutt City Mayor Ray Wallace opened the event and wished everyone well in the start of their triathlon journeys. Participant, Norah Carr, had fun at the event. “…Triathlon isn’t something I had really thought about getting into; I

The best sports story so far has been Leicester's English Premier League title tilt. Twelve months ago, they were facing relegation from the top flight of English football - now they have a two point lead with 11 games remaining in the season. It is still a tough order to see the Foxes winning it all. This competition is not like Super Rugby, the NRL, or even most major American sports leagues. The EPL has teams of massive wealth playing against teams who are delighted to survive another year in the competition. There are no salary caps, no evening out the playing field financially. For example, when Leicester played Chelsea in December, their team, including substitutes, cost £50.6 million compared to Chelsea's £292 million. Leicester's league leading striker Jeremy Vardy is being paid £1 million this season and

he's competing against players earning £30-40 million. Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri purchased his whole team pizzas after their first clean sheet of the season against Crystal Palace. Former manager Nigel Pearson deserves a lot of credit for making it happen as well. It was his skill that kept The Foxes in the EPL after they looked likely to be relegated this time last year. Current owners, the Srivaddhanaprabha family, had their surname bestowed upon them by the King of Thailand. The family also flew in Buddhist monks to bless the team prior to a victory over Manchester United. This is a grassroots story that you couldn't script in Hollywood. Only sport could throw up such unforeseen theatre. Leicester's title run even has fans of other teams hoping they'll go all the way, including this Manchester United supporter.
