Makara Model School got a pleasant surprise on Thursday when three Johnsonville police officers showed up to award six students for their bravery. On the morning of Friday, March 18 a school bus travelling down South Makara Road went up a bank causing the bus to flip onto its side, trapping six students and a bus driver inside. Quick-thinking eight-year-old Cleveland Brown saw a fire extinguisher on the bus and thought it would make a great tool to smash the window in order to escape. Continued on page 2 Gus Tulloch, 9, Cleveland Brown, 8, Jack Wellbelove, 10, Archie Tulloch, 6 and Antonio Anderson, 6, receive certificates for bravery. PHOTOS: Sharnahea Wilson

Five volunteers from the ANZ Bank spent St Patrick's Day with the residents of Cashmere and Cashmere Heights Homes, working with them on their native plant nurseries and vegetable gardens. The activity was part of ANZ’s Volunteer Initiative combined with Volunteer Wellington and their Employee Volunteering service. This programme connects 30 Business Friends, including ANZ, with Volunteer Wellington's 400 community partners, to encourage employees to get out "doing good" in the community. The volunteers and the residents picked out and potted up hundreds of native seedlings, which will be grown by the residents over the next two years. Vicki Jackson, who led the

ANZ group, said "It was an amazing opportunity, working with people who are in care and are elderly, learning from their experience and enjoying the sense of community and family at the Cashmere Homes. I’d recommend this experience to other volunteer groups". Peter Gilberd, a volunteer at the Homes, said 1500 plants have been donated to the community by the residents since they started their project in 2010. Most have been planted in schools and local reserves. The recreation officers at the Homes Liz Rivadelo and Kirsty Glasgow welcomed the support of the volunteers. "Working with seedlings and soil is a therapeutic and useful activity that brings back memories for the residents of their gardens at home - they love it,” Kirsty said.

primary school on Thursday, March 24 with certificates to award the youngsters for their bravery during what was deemed to be a very ‘scary’ event. “[The students] were cool calm and collected and they helped each other out,” Hamish said addressing an assembly of Model School pupils. His colleague Daniel agreed saying “It is important to let everyone know it was a scary thing to happen”. “They didn’t have any control over what happened, but they controlled what they did afterwards,” he said. The policemen presented each of the students who were on the bus with a certificate to commend them on the courage and initiative they


showed on the day. Nine-year-old Gus Tulloch described the bus flipping as “scary and surprising”. “I never thought it would happen,” he said. School principal Gail Dewar said it was frightening to receive a call from Transit on the morning of the accident to let her know what happened. “It was pretty scary, we didn’t know what to expect.” The students were all wearing their seatbelts and apart from one cut lip they arrived at school safely. Gail said the students had written to the bus driver and thanked him for helping them out. “He is coming to visit the students to see how they are all doing,” she said.

Celebrating 105 years By Sharnahea Wilson

A Huntleigh Home resident celebrated a particularly special birthday with friends and staff members last Thursday. Molly Holmes turned 105 years old on March 23 and enjoyed her birthday with

a celebratory afternoon tea and cake to mark the amazing milestone. Molly said she has had an enjoyable 105 years, working as a nurse for a long time at Wellington Hospital. She began working at the hospital after moving to New Zealand from Australia

in 1938 and stayed there for over 30 years until 1969. Molly said the key to a long life is to “take every day as it comes”. “What will be, will be – what is the point in worrying,” she said. Molly said in her younger years she enjoyed bowling, tennis and basketball. The enthusiastic birthday girl said she lived by herself in her own flat until last year. “I did all of my own shopping, I only moved into the home when my eye sight started going,” she explained. Her friend Bobby Mongigatti, who grew up next door to Molly, went along to the home to celebrate. Molly said she is enjoying being in the home and making new friends. “The staff here are lovely, they look after everyone.” Molly lived in Wadestown for a long time before moving to Hatton Street, Karori and said it was fantastic to be celebrating her birthday in Huntleigh Home. “It is lovely to celebrate with new friends. “It is marvellous that they put something like this on for me.”

Community encouraged to get quilting The Karori Arts and Crafts Centre members are getting excited about their upcoming quilting course which will help people learn how to make fabulous designs for their friends and family. Centre manager Margaret Taylor posed the question of whether people would like to learn how to make applique quilts for their grandchildren, sons or daughters. “Fyvie Murray will teach you her simple technique in a new folk art machine applique course,” she explained. The brand new course will be held on Sunday, April 3 from 10am to 4pm at 7 Beauchamp Street Karori. Fyvie has designed, quilted and appliqued for years at Karori Arts and Crafts each Wednesday. She designed the course to be held in response to members’ requests about

how she makes her gorgeous creations. “Fyvie is very experienced in tutoring people with limited or no experience in applique. “Learn how to do needle, turn appliqué using your sewing machine then master simple ways to make birds, leaves, flowers and stems,” Margaret said. She said attendees will also learn how to build a multi-layered image quickly to make an impact. Students need to bring their own materials and a list will be provided when you enrol. “You can buy from Nancy’s in Thorndon, or Spotlight. You will also need a working sewing machine that can do either a narrow zigzag or blind hemming stitch. And an open toed embroidery foot and a quarter foot,” Margaret said.

Crofton Downs gains defibrillator machine By Sharnahea Wilson

Recycling made easy The Council will be delivering free packs of 52 green recycling bags to about 26,000 Wellington households over the next couple of months – making it easy, and free, for locals to recycle. The Capital’s residents recycle about 12,000 tonnes of material a year, but 84,000 tonnes of waste still ends up at the Southern Landfill. Properties that have a Council wheelie bin won’t receive green bags. Two bags equal one bin (140 litres), so everyone is able to recycle the same amount each fortnight.

a therapeutic dose of electrical current to the heart. Toby said the grants from the Four Winds Foundation made it possible to get the machine and cabinet which had an overall cost of about $3000. He said the great thing about the machine is anyone can use it. “To get the code to the cabinet you have to call 111 and then the machine can take anyone through the process step by step.” Toby said there is a phone application which shows you where the closest AED machine is to where you are. “The closest AED to Crofton Downs was in Ngaio,” he said. All the staff members at the school had training in how to use the defibrillator. “If we can be working on the person while the ambulance is on its way there is a much better chance of survival.”

The Crofton Downs community can rest easy knowing in the case of an emergency, an Automated External Defibrillator is just around the corner. Thanks to some generous grants from the Four Winds Foundation an AED has been installed outside the office at the Crofton Downs Primary School. Principal Toby Stokes said it was fantastic to have an AED available in such an important hub in the community with “many community events” held at the school. “We have people of all ages come to the school for various reasons. “Community groups use the space and there are adult yoga and dance classes,” Toby explained. Defibrillation is a common treatment for cardiac problems and works through delivering

Wellington City Council is uniting with Churton Park’s Community Association to hold a clean-up day on Saturday, April 2. The Association members said the clean-up is incorporated with their aim to enhance the attractiveness of the suburb through maintaining tidiness and the beautification of streets. “Unfortunately rubbish bins will blow over on windy days and the contents then spread far and wide,” Association member Richard Taylor said. He said while most residents pick up the odd piece of rubbish that may end up around their properties this is not always the case, particularly in public areas and reserves. “[The Association] has been

surprised at what some people have dumped as well – some quite large bits of inorganic material and some quite obnoxious rubbish.” After the success of the cleanup day run in Johnsonville, the Association felt their area would benefit from a similar exercise, Richard said. “The idea was picked up enthusiastically by the Council who again will be providing bags, gloves and arranging disposal of the rubbish picked up.” Deputy Mayor Justin Lester has jumped on board the cleanup saying it was a great idea given the fact they had collected over 100 bags of rubbish during the Johnsonville clean up. “It would be great to see the Churton Park community come out and support the clean-up.” Justin said there would be vari-

backing of the Johnsonville Lions, local church and local schools. Everyone will meet at the Churton Park Community Centre for an 11am start. There will be a barbecue at the Community Centre afterwards to feed the hungry collectors.

New Zealand votes to keep current flag Kiwis have had their say - New Zealand’s current flag is here to stay. Last Thursday, the Electoral Commission released the preliminary result for the second referendum on the flag. The current New Zealand flag received the most votes at 56.6 per cent, with Kyle Lockwood’s Silver Fern Flag receiving 43.1 per cent of votes. The Electoral Commission said it received more than two million votes, which included 4942 informal votes and 4554 invalid votes. Voter turnout was an impressive 67.3 per cent. In the Ohariu electorate, 32, 643 people voted in the second flag referendum, with a voter turnout of 72.2 per cent. Of those who voted, 53.9 per cent selected the current New

Zealand flag. Since the referendum was announced last year there has been lively debate, with many people voicing their opinion on whether the flag should be changed and what it should be changed to. Following last Thursday’s results, Prime Minister John Key said on Twitter “New Zealand has voted to retain our current flag. I encourage all NZers to use it, embrace it and, more importantly, be proud of it”. Mr Key has been a vocal supporter of changing the flag. The RSA said it was “delighted, but not surprised, at the outcome of the second flag referendum”. RSA National President BJ Clark said the result showed New Zealanders wanted to retain the current flag. “We’re glad so many New


Zealanders heeded the RSA’s call and made their voices heard for the second referendum – it was an inspiring, strong show of democracy in action. “New Zealand service personnel sign up for a number of reasons, but one of the foremost of these is to safeguard the continuing of our way of life. “It’s heartening so many Kiwis have exercised their right to have their say, and keep the flag. The people have spoken.”  Are you pleased with the results of the second referendum? Send us an email – news@wsn.

New Zealanders have voted to keep the current flag after preliminary results were released in the second flag referendum last Thursday.

In Johnsonville there were two graffiti attacks on a train on the Johnsonville line. The first occurred overnight while the train was parked in Johnsonville railway station and considerable damage was done to the exterior of one of the carriages. A second incident occurred later that day, Friday 25 March, when a train pulled in to Awarua Street station at 1 pm en route to Johnsonville. Five persons with identity masked and carrying spray paint cans got off the train and started applying graffiti to a carriage. The train could not move because the offenders had opened the emergency release flap. A green BMW hatchback that broke down just before the Johnsonville off ramp was stolen after being left locked pending towing. In Newlands a black Honda Civic parked overnight in a carport in a fully fenced property in Kenmore Street was stolen. A blue Honda Integra parked overnight in Baylands Drive was broken into via a smashed passenger window, a laptop computer, Iphone, Ipod and headphones were stolen.

The menu at Gatsby Tapas on the corner of Renown Rd and Poplar Ave in Raumati South, was inspired by the owner Rosi Buttula who has travelled well all over the world. The dish Nick’s Medallions of rare beef in particular, was named after “Nick Caraway” the narrator from the book The Great Gatsby. He really enjoyed a good meal which included steak, but he couldn’t always afford it. As head chef, I personally really enjoy cooking this dish and really love how all the flavours balance each other so well, from the slow cooked five spiced onion confit stewing slowly to become something spectacular and slightly sweet, atop the char-grilled beef perfectly seasoned and cooked to rare,

thinly sliced. We then place this on top of the creamy crispy risotto herb cake prepared earlier and moulded to our soft circular shape, all delicately pieced together, creating a flavour sensation on your palate. As a chef I thoroughly enjoy making people happy with these flavours put together for everyone to enjoy. As well as the Gatsby theme throughout the restaurant, it brings it all together so beautifully. There are other delicious dishes to choose from here at Gatsby Tapas, such as our Spicy Seafood Jambalaya and Scallop Ravioli with Chive Burre Blanc. Come in and see for yourself!

Victoria professor wins senior programming prize An innovative university researcher has won an international prize after making it easier for students to tune into computer coding. Professor James Noble from Victoria University’s School of Engineering and Computer Science won the 2016 AITO Dahl-Nygaard Senior Prize for his contributions to computer programming languages. The international prize is considered the most prestigious in object-oriented computer science. James is part of an international group of researchers who created Grace—a language specifically designed to help novices learn programming in a simple way. “Grace emerged from a conference in 2010, where it became clear there was a need for a new, more easily digestible programming language. “People can find programming languages daunting or frustrating, but they shouldn’t. Grace has flexibility—that is, students can be introduced to it in stages, and can grow to the full version at their pace.


“I’ve been working to make the syntax and semantics of Grace as easy to learn as possible, and engaging with students to lower any barriers,” James said. One of those students is Sam Minns, a professional musician who turned his attention to studying software engineering five years ago. During his studies, Sam developed a web-based music library which allowed him to use Grace to programme music live. “I can create and perform music by writing code live in front of the audience or dance floor. “This shows just how useable Grace can be, and how different people can get value out of programming,” Sam said. Sam—who will graduate with a Bachelor of Engineering with Honours in May— works as a software developer at Powershop. “Grace can help novices in their forays into computer programming.” “It helps to minimise that discouragement when programmers are first starting out, and create code with greater ease,” he said.

Aro Valley’s egg-citing Easter egg hunt By Bethany Tiddy MASSEY JOURNALISM STUDENT

Aro Valley celebrated Easter with an Easter egg hunt in the Aro Park and Aro Valley Preschool on Sunday, March 27. Local children gathered in the park and filled their baskets

with chocolate eggs found in trees, bushes and under park benches. Children over five searched in Aro Park and the under-fives in the pre-school One of the Easter egg hunters, Culain Kelly, 8, said he found three Easter eggs, but his friend

only found two. “We’re going to share them,” Culain said. Organiser Tash Crombie said there were over 30 children and 180 chocolate eggs. Tash said the cost of the Easter egg hunt was $2 per ticket and the event was “for the community”.

Food the whole family can enjoy With great banter, fine food and an array of exquisite wine and beer, the Khandallah Trading Company is the place to be. This restaurant-meets-community-hub is a great place for family and friends to meet for a casual meal or to celebrate a special occasion.

Jackie said the team at KTC “Build




relationships with the community through sponsorship of local sports teams including Onslow Cricket Club, Wests and Johnsonville Rugby Clubs and Khandallah Tennis Club”. This diverse restaurant also has a big screen available for televised sports events where the community can sit and watch live games together. KTC has recently changed their menu and some of the new favourite items include Salt and Pepper squid, Crisp Pork Belly Salad and Sticky Date Pudding. “The lunch menu favourites include Philly Cheese Steak Po Boy, Southern Fried Shrimp Po Boy and a classic Caesar Salad,” Jackie said.

Q: Do you think primary schools should be sugar free?

Mandy Betty Edwards, Johnsonville

Dion Lane, Johnsonville

Emma Harris, Grenada Village

Julia Stevens, Johnsonville

Rob Jeffrey, Newlands

I think so because we people already consume too much sugar out of school.

Yeah, at home sugary drinks are available so kids should have a break from them at school.

It depends, I think homemade baking is fine but fizzy drinks and lollies should be banned.

Yes, some kids consume too much sugar.

Yes I think that would be fair enough, water’s fine that’s all we had in my day.

John Gilmartin, Johnsonville That’s a good idea, it’s very bad for people’s health – sugar is addictive.

Do you know a Local Hero? Help us find some Local Heros

The Independent Herald, in conjunction with the Johnsonville Shopping Centre will be running a new 'Local Hero' feature. In our up-coming issues we would like to celebrate those people in the community who might not be getting the recognition they deserve for the inspiring deeds they do. Each month we will choose one Local Hero from the local community who has done a good deed (sorry no volunteer groups as we want to recognise independent individuals). This can be anything from someone raising

money for a sick child, to someone dedicating their time to helping people in need. The feature will give people the chance to thank those people in the community whose good deeds might go unrecognised. Each Local Hero will be interviewed for a story with a photo and will receive a voucher for the Johnsonville Shopping Centre.  If you would like to nominate someone who fits the bill, contact Sharnahea Wilson at or on 5871660.

Johnsonville and Districts R&SA Welfare Trust

Community car boot sale a success It is not just our gardens that need a tidy-up at the end of summer, said president of the Churton Park Community Association Brian Sheppard. The Association decided to help the community by holding a car boot sale on March 20 to help local people clear their cupboards, and give others the opportunity look for some great bargains. The car boot sale took place in the car park outside New World and the Churton Park Community Centre last week. “The money from the sellers’ site fees will help the Association to fund activities that support the growth of community spirit in this rapidly expanding suburb,” Brian said.

Zealandia Kaka make the move to Hawkes Bay Up to 10 juvenile kaka birds will soon be making the trip from Zealandia Ecosanctuary in Karori up to Cape Sanctuary in the Hawkes Bay. The transfer of the native birds will help establish another population of the parrots. The delicate task of capturing the young parrots began in mid-March and is hoped to be completed during April. “We’re delighted to now be in a position to assist with translocations from our own kaka population,” Lead Ranger of Conservation Matu Booth said. “Transfers such as this will increase the size and genetic diversity of the Cape Sanctuary’s kaka population, thereby ensuring a stronger, healthier population.” The juveniles will be transferred to Cape Sanctuary within a day of capture, spending their first few months in an aviary to help them acclimatise and have extra support over the winter. In spring they will be released into a 2500 hectare protected peninsula at the Cape Sanctuary where they are expected to breed and flourish.

Wellington’s kaka population has risen steadily since their reintroduction into Zealandia in 2002, with the 700th locally bred kaka banded late last year. Cape Sanctuary is a wildlife restoration project established in 2006 by landowners of the Cape Kidnappers peninsula. It is the largest privately owned restoration project of its kind in New Zealand. Since Cape Sanctuary’s fence was completed in 2007 they have reintroduced a number of rare and indigenous New Zealand wildlife such as tomtit, rifleman, robin and brown kiwi.

1: Before and after photos In our minds we can run that 10km marathon, or fit into those skinny jeans displayed in a fashion store window. But in reality what we think we look like, may not be what the mirror reflects. So to kick start your winter fitness goals, take a 'before' photo which you can look back at and see the difference your fitness training is making. It's also a great way to steer yourself away from the 'treats'. Keep your photo somewhere you can see it often, on the fridge, in your wallet or even in the car. 2: Goals Board By seeing your fitness goals in front of you every day you wake up, will keep you motivated by reminding you of what you need to do that day. Place coloured notes on the bedroom mirror, the bathroom door, the fridge, kitchen table and even the dog kennel, reminding you to walk the dog or visit the gym that day. 3: Keep a record Keeping a record of time spent exercising and any food you eat is another great way to keep tabs on your day to day activities. Let's face it, many people can 'conveniently'

Cycling is excellent for fitness and a family activity.

forget certain foods they eat, telling themselves; "I'll make up for it tomorrow." By writing everything down you are reminding yourself of what you have done and hopefully motivate you to do some exercise. 4: Update music playlist Music is something that motivates many people whether it be out walking, at the

gym or at home. By updating your music regularly, it gives you something to look forward to and makes exercise more fun 5: Family challenge Set a family challenge so everyone can help to motivate one another. It can be to lose weight, to increase your fitness or simply to enjoy some family time while out exercising.

Fuel up for winter Drinking an adequate amount of fluid and fueling your body is as important in the winter as it is during the summer. In the winter, the cold weather “blunts the thirst mechanism,” and you may not notice that you are thirsty. Carry a small amount of food and water with you when you exercise outdoors, so you will have some nourishment if you need it.

Exercising in the cold increases your appetite as your body temperature drops. Eating and digesting food warms your body. Control your cravings The cold always seems to tempt us to eat high-calorie snacks that we find much easier to resist in the warmer months. When you find yourself reaching for comfort food such as chocolate, hot

puddings, breads and cakes, satisfy your cravings instead with healthier alternatives. Try porridge with cinnamon and stewed fruit instead of adding sugar, low fat yoghurt, a handful of dry, reduced sugar cereal with a few raisins or sultanas, Pumpkin and sunflower seeds, Rice cakes with low fat cottage cheese and cucumber or a small handful of unsalted mixed nuts.

“It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver.” ~ Mahatma Gandhi

Urinary Tract Infections / Cystitis – A Burning Issue Urinary tract infections, also known as cystitis are due to inflammation (swelling, often with irritation) of the bladder. While it can be caused by some medicines and chemicals, the usual culprit is bacteria that travel along the urethra (the small tube leading up to your bladder). These bacteria are always present in our intestines and normally are found around the openings of the rectum, vagina and urethra. Usually the bladders ‘self defence’ mechanisms enable the body to cope with these bacteria but in some circumstances, and more often in women, infection can result. Signs of urinary tract infections are burning or stinging when passing urine, an urgent need to pass urine - and frequently, passing only small amounts at a time or producing discoloured, cloudy and smelly urine. Urinary tract infections can be painful. They may last a long time or they can keep coming back. “Help is available to treat urinary tract infections” say Self Care pharmacists. “At

the first sign, drink two or three glasses of water, and continue to drink as much as you can – to try and ‘flush-out’ the bacteria from the urinary tract”. If that is not successful, the next step is to try urinary alkaliniser medicines that help make the urine less acid and less likely for the bacteria to thrive. “They help relieve the burning when you pass urine and are available from our pharmacies” Self Care pharmacists advise. However, alkalinisers can interfere with the activity of certain medicines and you would need to discuss this with your pharmacist if you are taking other medicines. If after trying these measures your symptoms don’t go away within 24 hours, you need to follow this up with your pharmacist or doctor. Pharmacists are now able to discuss your condition with you and provide a course of antibiotics known as trimethoprim, or they can advise you if it is necessary to visit your doctor. Cranberries are thought to prevent bacteria from at-

taching to the bladder and other parts of the urinary tract - which may assist with preventing cystitis. If you get the condition often, drinking cranberry juice or taking other cranberry products on a regular basis may be beneficial. However, there are chemicals in cranberries that may interfere with the medicine warfarin (for blood thinning). If you are taking warfarin, check first with your pharmacist before you also have any cranberry products. Some symptoms may indicate that the infection is more serious. “For example”, caution Self Care pharmacists, “if you experience high fever, confusion, pain in your lower back or lower stomach, an unusual vaginal discharge or blood in your urine, see your doctor immediately”. Children can get cystitis, and men too. Both should have their symptoms checked out by their doctors without delay. Women can take some simple steps to prevent urinary tract infections, and help decrease the number of attacks. “In ad-

dition to drinking lots of fluids - especially water, our advice”, say Self Care pharmacists, “is to wear cotton underwear, or underwear with cotton gussets, as these allow the skin to breathe. Empty your bladder completely each time you pass urine, and immediately after sexual intercourse - to help get rid of remaining bacteria. Avoid using diaphragms or tampons when you have urinary tract infections as these can increase the number of bacteria and make the infection worse. After urinating, use toilet paper to wipe from front to back, and be careful with personal hygiene of the anal/vaginal area. Perfumed soaps and vaginal deodorants can irritate the skin, so avoid using them”. Ask your Self Care pharmacist for a copy of the Urinary Tract Infections fact card that has more useful tips on how to care for yourself when you get this infection. Prepared by Pharmacy Self Care, Pharmaceutical Society of NZ Inc, 16-20 Willis St, Wellington

ABOUT Kids go fishin’ at Easter

PHOTO CREDIT: Bella Photography

2. By Rachel Binning



Competition was strong for Wellington’s fresh fish last weekend. The Tradezone Kids Gone Fishin’ Day was held at Queens Wharf on Saturday, March 26 in warm breezy Wellington weather. Kids excitedly hauled in fish from Wellington Harbour with occasional help from a handy adult.


Veteran New Zealand fishing legend Graeme Sinclair was on hand to encourage the young fishing folk to keep trying to get the big one. “Never let the truth stand in the way of a good fishing story,” Graeme joked. It was estimated well over 1000 kids and their parents attended the hugely popular event. Reg i st e r e d c h a r it y a n d community policing youth programme Blue Light put






the event together with support from local church, The Rock and the Wellington City Council. Blue Light works closely with the New Zealand Police to support and benefit youth in New Zealand. Kirk Beyer of The Rock said, “It was a privilege to partner with the council and police”. There were spot prizes as well as prizes for the biggest fish in each age category.

Local netballers blitz the competition By Bethany Tiddy MASSEY JOURNALISM STUDENT

The Samuel Marsden Collegiate School Senior A netball team made a strong start to the season when they dominated a recent netball tournament last Saturday. The team competed in the Atiawa Toa FM pre-season netball tournament at the Taita netball courts on Saturday, March 19. After winning five games, the Samuel Marsden Senior A team went on to beat academy club team ‘Blitz Rangatahi’ by 35-3 in the college grade final. Marsden school team captain Tamara Warmerdam, 17, said

there were new girls on the team and it was the first time they had all played together. “I’m proud of the team,” she said. Tamara said lots of friends and family members attended the final game last Saturday. “We had amazing support,” she said. The team have enjoyed bonding together since their big win and will practise twice a week throughout the season, which will begin on Saturday, April 16 at the ASB Sports Centre in Kilbirnie. Tamara said the team is looking forward to competing again in the Lower North Island Secondary School Tournament in the first week of September.

Woodridge resident runs for cancer By Sharnahea Wilson Keen Rugby player Oliver Hulme

Programme aims to strengthen grassroots rugby A partnership between CrestClean and LeslieRugby will deliver 50 coaching programme sessions to rugby clubs, including Western Suburbs Rugby Football Club, this year. The programme is aimed at junior rugby coaches as well as parents who are interested in coaching the game in the future. It aims to ensure players are given an enjoyable and beneficial experience. Each coach will receive a pocket-sized ‘Skills and Drills’ booklet which makes it easier for them to learn how to train junior rugby teams. CrestClean managing director Grant McLauchlan said the feedback they received from last year’s programme gave them the confidence to invest in the initiative again. “Club sport and physical activity plays a big part in the health and wellbeing of

children. “We are proud to support this endeavor to improve the coaching and grassroots rugby skill base in New Zealand,” Grant said. Each session will be run by former Highlanders and Scotland Captain John Leslie and will involve 12-year-old players demonstrating 14 core skills. John will also explain his coaching philosophies and tips for keeping the energy levels high and the game fun for kids. “The feedback from each clinic has been overwhelmingly positive,” John said. He said the content in the programme shows coaches how to control and manage a junior rugby team. “It keeps the kids moving and in rugby action for an hour of training.”  The programme session at the Western Suburbs Rugby Football Club will take place on April 2 at 1pm.

A Woodridge resident is gearing up to participate in the 2016 Relay for Life to remember and honour her brother and anyone who has suffered from cancer. Donna Ngan is team captain of ‘Wii Not Fit’ – a 10-memberstrong team who will be participating in the relay on April 9 and 10 at Frank Kitts Park on Wellington’s Waterfront. Donna alone has already raised $2700 for the Cancer Society of New Zealand. “I just want to give back to the people who helped [my brother] as well as anyone in the community who has suffered from cancer,” she said. Donna lost her 28-year-old brother Scott last year on January 24 to a rare form of cancer called Germ Cancer. “New Zealand had to seek specialist help from New York and London for his condition,” Donna explained. She said the past year has been a very emotional time but she is now ready to give back. “Joining the Relay for Life is a small thing I can do to give back to all the support and help the Cancer Society has provided to me, Scott and our family. “I miss my brother every day, not a moment goes by when I don’t think of him,” she said. Wii Not Fit team members have been auctioning off items

on Trademe to raise funds for the Cancer Society. The items they are selling include a brand new pasta and noodle maker as well as an original artwork by Kapiti artist and calligrapher Maxine Livingston. On March 31 the team will also be hosting a sausage sizzle at 28 Cornwall Street from 11am-1pm where team member

Kathryn will shave her hair off if she raises $1500. Donna urged people to go along and “support Kathryn and most importantly – buy a sausage or throw your spare change into our collection tins”.  To donate to Wii Not Fit’s Relay for Life efforts visit: nz/index/donation
