Continued from page 1 The principals in Wainuiomata have put in an expression of interest to the Ministry of Education on developing a Community of Learning and will be setting a student achievement goal following a public discussion next month. Wainuiomata High School principal, Martin Isberg, and Wainuiomata Primary School principal, Allison Burdon, said the group was interested in hearing what

the community had to say about student achievement goals. “We’re really keen on public input,” Martin said.

“We want to find out what the community wants,” Allison added.

Wainuiomata Intermediate school principal, Pearl Murti, said the schools had all been working together for some time but being part of a Community of Learning would formalise their collaboration. Their current focus was finding an achievement challenge helpful to all schools, she said. “ How do you get a n achievement challenge relevant to the needs of all schools? We thought we’d

like to see what the community thinks. “One of the things we all want is a strategic plan for the valley that we all subscribe to and believe in and work towards.” The Connected Community, Successful Learners discussion will take place at the Wainuiomata Community Centre on Tuesday, April 12 at 7pm. All are welcome to participate and share ideas in the discussion.

Youth talent shines at festival By Emma McAuliffe

The #TAG’s representing Smokefree.

The “Get Your Talent On” youth talent festival, which took place for the first time last Saturday, has been labeled a “great success”. The festival was organised by the #TAG’s, a group of youth in Wainuiomata who work to spread positive messages to young people in the community. The festival, which was held at Queen Street Reserve, was organised in an effort to encourage youth to showcase their talent among their peers. One of the organisers, Leah Clarke said the day went really well with dozens of people showing up. “[It went] the way we imagined it- just fans sitting around listening to local talent.” Te Puea Morgan, #TAG’s facilitator, said the day had gone well and she was pleased the weather turned out nicely. Performers at the event included local musicians, singers, the Hutt Valley Rock n Roll

Club and the Wellington Region Karate Academy. The closing act was performed by Wainuiomata High School Kapa Haka group. The #TAG’s worked alongside Smokefree in handing out spot prizes and surveys around Smokefree initiatives on the day. Stalls on the day included the #Hallelujah- Church of the Latter Day Saints, Jitta Bugz and Neighbourhood Support. The Wainuiomata High School Stage Challenge core group also fundraised for their upcoming performance in this year’s competition with a sausage sizzle. Leah said the event could not have gone ahead without sponsorship from local organisations. She said the #TAG’s would start organising the 2017 event soon and would be looking to bring back previous performers and find even more local talent.

More than 500 people gathered at the Fitzroy Tavern last weekend to celebrate AtaahuaJourney’s life. Ataahua’s mother, Krystal Nikara, organised the event in remembrance of her daughter, who died in February after a long battle with bronchiectasis. K r yst a l sa id fol low i ng Ataahua’s death, she had been approached by locals who wanted a chance to celebrate her daughter’s life. Many of the locals who attended last week’s event brought along their children and Krystal said children were

a real focus of the celebration. “The day [was] all about the children. We had young talent and games for all age levels.” She said the event was made possible thanks to generous donations from the community, which included pizza, baking and popcorn. “Every single person that came ate for free, enjoyed for free. Everything was donated by locals.” She said there was also a variety of performances on offer. Krystal thanked the community for their support and said the day could not have gone ahead without their generosity.

Leading the way in ECE participation Earlier this month National List MP, Chris Bishop, congratulated Lower Hutt as it helped the Wellington region become one of the first three in the country to achieve the Government’s Early Childhood Education (ECE) participation target. The Wellington region has achieved the 98 per cent participation target set by the Government for the end of this year. Lower Hutt recorded a participation rate of 98.1 per cent. “This is due recognition of the work that parents and ECE providers do in and around Lower Hutt,” Chris said.

Declan with his exchange student, Dragon

Wainuiomata High School and Wainuiomata Intermediate School welcomed exchange students from Bangkok earlier this month. International Student Dean from Wainuiomata High School, Virginia Wilson, said the students would be in New Zealand for four weeks. “Some of them are thinking of studying in New Zealand if they have a good time,” she said. All students have been partnered with a family for the duration of their visit and will attend school each day with a buddy. Declan Reid-O’Connell is one of the Wainuiomata High School students with a buddy from Bangkok. He said he had been playing lots of football with his buddy, Mongkorn

Phumsawai, who goes by ‘Dragon’ whilst in New Zealand. “I’ve been showing him around my area down the coast. I introduced him to new food like fish and chips. He likes fish and chips,” Declan said. Dragon said he liked New Zealand so far. “Everyone in your country is very friendly,” he said. As part of their trip the exchange students got taken around Wellington tourist sites. Virginia said there would be a trip to Rotorua over Easter weekend.  Wainuiomata High School is always on the lookout for more homes wishing to offer full board to international exchange students.  For more information contact Ali Saunders at 9383224 ext. 7015 or at

New Zealand votes to keep current flag By Emma McAuliffe

The results are in. New Zealand will keep its current flag. The preliminary results for the second flag referendum were released last Thursday night, with 56.6 per cent of New Zealanders voting to keep the current flag. Over two million eligible voters participated. Hutt South MP, Trevor Mallard said he supported keeping the current flag and said a slight majority voted for the current flag

in Hutt South. Voter turnout in the Hutt South electorate was 33,991 which amounted to 70.3 per cent of its total eligible voters. Of those who took part 57 per cent voted to keep the current flag. “I think people were really upset about what was being spent on it, the designs were amateurish and none really grabbed [New Zealand’s attention] like the maple leaf did for Canadians,” Trevor said. He said he originally wanted to change the flag but disagreed with the process and

context of the referendum. He said the result of the referendum did not mean New Zealand should never change the flag. “It should be done in the context, maybe in 2040 when it’s the 200th anniversary of the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi.” He said the referendum was a distraction from the “real issues” New Zealand was facing. “Inequality and child poverty are the issues the government should be addressing,” Trevor said.

CONSULTATION ON HUTT CITY COUNCIL’S 2016/17 ANNUAL PLAN IS UNDERWAY. We are continuing to invest in the rejuvenation and growth of Lower Hutt. This year’s Annual Plan continues work on projects like the Town Hall and Events Centre, upgrades to Avalon Park, and new learn-to-swim and hydrotherapy facilities for Huia Pool. Council’s draft budget shows we can continue the programme of rejuvenation with an average rates increase of 2.7%, expected to be the lowest in the region.

Margaret Willard to stand again for Hutt City Council Over Pukeatua, the Anzac wall hanging in the refurbished hall, Hub open days, youth projects and events, and Wainuiomata’s rejuvenation plan. “We have a lot of residents with ideas and a desire to help enhance the community, and I get a lot of satisfaction from connecting people and organisations so amazing things can happen and others get enjoyment and fulfilment from being involved.” Margaret said she was keen for residents to be involved in the political process, particularly as consultation on the 2016-2017 annual plan would soon be underway. “Until we hear from ratepayers my

mind is open about what our priorities should be for the coming year. But we do need residents’ views.” She said she had worked to support Council in encouraging young people to learn about civic matters and to have their say. Margaret was clear she would be standing totally independently, free of any political party affiliations. “I’ll be simply representing residents, without obligations to any political organisation. I’ll be clear and upfront about other candidates I support and work with, and most importantly will be standing on my solid record of integrity and hard work for the community and the city.”

Book Fair fun in the valley The first Lions book fair took place last weekend at the old Wainuiomata College school hall. The Lions took over the fair from Rotary this year. Project manager for the event, Dave Gulde, said the Lions did not make too many changes to the fair. He said there were approximately 15,000 to 20,000 books on sale over the weekend and around 2000 people visited the popular

fair over the two days. Dave said funds raised from the book fair would go back in to the community through schools, the local volunteer fire service and Ronald McDonald House. The volunteer fire service helped the Lions pack the books into the hall on Thursday before the fair. Leftover books from the event were re-sorted and saved until the next sale or given to book Book fair goers enjoy the fair. charities. PHOTO CREDIT: Dan Taylor

Queen St. spruce up Dear Ed, Wouldn’t it be lovely if each of the individual shop fronts in our Wainuiomata Queen Street were painted in brilliant bright colours, as is done in villages in Ireland and some other European countries? I think these bright colours would not only help to ‘lift’ the moods of our

Wainuiomata shoppers during the forthcoming cold and dark winter months, but also attract visitors from over the hill to Wainuiomata and its shops. So, come on shop owners, spruce up your shop fronts and be proud to be servicing Wainuiomata. Marion Bolli-Guerin

Flag woes Dear Ed , I believe that the retaining of our flag has been in the main, a protest vote, we should have been asked if we wanted our flag changed in the first place. B. Bain (Mrs)

Clive’s celebrates Happiness Day By Emma McAuliffe

Clive’s Chemist celebrated International Happiness Day last Friday with free cupcakes and a special draw to win a happiness gift basket. The International Day of Happiness is a campaign to celebrate the United Na-

tion’s focus on happiness as being a fundamental human goal. Its official celebration date is Sunday March 20 but the pharmacy decided to celebrate it earlier. “Every day is happiness day here,� staff member Angela MacKenzie said. Angela and co-worker

Kim Allardyce baked the cupcakes given away on the day. Owner, Clive Cannons, sometimes known as the ‘Happy Chemist’, said the pharmacy celebrated the event every year. “It’s just to make people smile,� he said.

Grey Power visited by local police at monthly meeting By Emma McAuliffe

Grey Power had a special visit from a local sergeant at their most recent monthly meeting. Sergeant Bradley Allen was one of the guest speakers at the Grey Power meeting, which took place last Wednesday. Other speakers at last week’s event included Alan Shaw, a respiratory nurse from Hutt Hospital who spoke about Asthma, and Councillor Margaret Willard, who spoke on developments in the Wainuiomata Retirement Village plan. Bradley talked about crime prevention in Wainuiomata and how this affected older members of the community. “Youth crime is quite high

and a lot of it is youth nuisance rather than thefts,â€? he said. He said reasons for this were social issues and the police were taking action to investigate why youth were committing crime. Bradley encouraged Grey Power members to take precautions in their homes to prevent opportunists from seeing property and being encouraged to take it. He said all crime needed to be reported for police to be able to take action. “People moan about crime on Facebook‌ but don’t report it,â€? Bradley said. ď Ž Grey Power’s next meeting will take place at Life City Church on April 27.

‘Slow But Steady’ relays for life By Emma McAuliffe

A Wainuiomata woman is taking part in the Wellington Relay for Life next month for her son who was diagnosed with cancer. Relay for Life is a 24 hour community event hosted by the Cancer Society in an effort to celebrate cancer survivors, remember loved ones and fight back to raise awareness and funds for further cancer research. This is the third year Jak

Aberdein-Tapuai is taking part in the event after her son, James, was diagnosed with leukemia at 10-years-old. “He’s such a brave young man, he took in its stride,“ she said. James was now in remission, but Jak said it was important people understood cancer could change lives quickly, as it did when her son was first diagnosed in 2011. “It’s unexpected, it’s not something you think is going to happen. These [organisations]

are really important- it’s really hard when you have a child with cancer.” Jak, a social worker with Barnardos, said she would be relaying with colleagues and their team was called ‘Slow But Steady’. She said her team had a fundraising goal of $2000 and had held a film fundraiser at Petone Lighthouse. Jak said further donations could be made to the team through the Relay for Life website.

Wainuiomata High School has a visit from the Webb-Ellis Cup By Emma McAuliffe

Wainuiomata High School students had the chance to get close to the Webb-Ellis cup last Monday. The Webb-Ellis cup is the the trophy awarded to the winners of the Rugby World Cup. The All Blacks won the world cup for the third time last year. Rugby teams and other interested students from around the school and Wainuiomata had the opportunity to pose with the cup and take selfies with it. Rugby development manager for Wellington rugby, Rick Whatarau, said Wainuiomata High School was the last of four schools the New Zealand Rugby Union (NZRU) visited with the cup. He said NZRU aimed to grow the numbers of youth playing rugby with

the tour. Rick said NZRU chose Wainuiomata High School as they saw it as a school with potential to “grow their rugby presence”. “It’s a great way to promote the game,” he said. Rick said he was pleased to see the girls go up to get their photo taken with the cup first and the college was trying to get a girls under 15’s team up and running. He said he was impressed by the sausage sizzle the school ran for the event and the amount of students staying around the school after having their photos taken to throw a ball around. “It’s simple but awesome.” Following its trip to Wainuiomata, the cup headed to the Wairarapa as part of the tour to engage more young students.

Novak Djokovic's comments about men deserving more prize money than women in tennis are based on facts. After claiming victory at the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells, 11-time major winner and world No 1 Djokovic said the men's tennis tour "should fight for more". The 28-year-old said women "fought for what they deserve and they got it", but claimed prize money should be "fairly distributed" based on "who attracts more attention, spectators, and who sells more tickets". There has been equal prize money in all four majors - the Australian Open, US Open, French Open and Wimbledon - since 2007, and combined Masters events such as Indian Wells and Miami pay the same to men and women. Maybe that's too simple thinking? More work equals more pay. It's hard to argue with those comments and

when you consider men play five sets in grand slams and women play three, it seems men should be paid more for playing more tennis. I'd love to see women's tennis matches go to five sets at grand slams. It would be a game changer for women, it would put an increased importance of stamina and fitness and force many of the top names to play regular tennis to maintain that fitness, unlike Serena Williams, who has been guilty of picking and choosing her tournaments in the past while being ranked No 1. It would also provide quality sporting theatre, men's five setters have so many subplots and are often gripping encounters as one player often surges back into contention and the other clings to control of the contest. Sport is an entertainment product and this would certainly increase entertainment.

Futsal at High School Wainuiomata High School’s Boys and Girls Futsal teams have come away with wins in the finals of their respective divisions. Futsal is played indoor in the style of football, with five players on the court at a time. It is so popular at Wainuiomata High School the school runs a Wednesday school-based Futsal programme for the 35 boys they could not take into the main league. Over the past six weeks the Boys 1 and 2 teams have played in the Futsal competition at St. Patrick’s Silverstream. Team 1 competed in Division 1 and won all their games in pool, continuing their success to the Finals. They won the Finals in a penalty shootout against Naenae College.

The Boys team attended the Futsal Regionals last Saturday and made it to the Plate. Highlights included beating Wellington High School 2-0 and playing the 2015 National Futsal winners, St. Patrick’s College Wellington. The Boys are now focusing on the Nationals which will take place in Wellington early April. The Girls team played in the Wellington League in Division 3 and won all the games in their pool. They faced Onslow College in the Finals and came away with the win after going into penalties. Jocelyn Reddy, Futsal Coordinator for the schools said the school was “incredibly proud of our Futsal players, their coaches, managers and support crews.”
