Swinging into action

A dedicated group of parents decided it was time their children got to experience a new adventure playground, so they set out to raise $100,000. Northland School parent Caroline Wood said a group of parents thought it would be a good idea to start fundraising for a new playground at the school. “The project was initiated by parents who formed a committee two years ago,” Caroline said. She explained how Northland School used to have a “really high iconic slide” which generations of children played on. The slide was built in the 80s and was deemed no longer fit for purpose so it had to be removed last year.

Wadestown Principal Sally Barrett said putting up the remembrance field would become a yearly tradition. “It is so important for children to see the significance of Anzac Day. “They can see from a young age what it is to commemorate.” She said it was lovely that the students decided to sing the Australian national anthem as well as our own. “It’s a great tribute to the whole spirit of Anzac Day.” Some of the students have been selected by the Ministry of Defence in conjunction with the RSA to sell poppies on poppy day next Friday.

Continued on page 2 The parents decided on a goal of $100,000 to build a new adventure playground with different levels to add some excitement for the children. “For a school of this size that is a lot of money,” Caroline said. The playground committee also included Northland School principal Jeremy Edwards who originally thought the $100,000 mark would take a long time to reach. “I thought raising the money would be a long-term project that would take five or six years.” The committee stepped up and managed to raise the funds in just two years. Fundraising efforts included a car wash, selling custommade t-shirts and tea towels and generous donations up to $5,000 from school families and the wider community. “The whole community has

jumped on board,” Jeremy said. “We have already sent out over 200 thank you letters.” Jeremy explained one of the parents helping raise money for the playground also fundraised for the current playground when she was a student at the school 30 years ago. The committee is now working on getting some grants and possibly collaborating with the Wellington City Council to gain some extra funds for the adventure playground. The building of the playground is currently delayed until a decision about the construction of a nearby classroom building is made from the Ministry of Education. “Once construction of the playground begins we expect it will be finished within 12 months,” Jeremy said.  Give a little page: patterson

Hair-razing event By Sharnahea Wilson

get rid of frown lines. Rhodora said holding an auction while she was having her hair shaved was a “fun way to do it”. The hairdresser Jasmine Panthaki from Jasmines Hair Dressing Studio, who is the daughter in law of one of the residents, divided Rhodora’s hair into multiple ponytails. One by one eager audience members went up and cut off a ponytail, starting with her husband Carlo Jaminola. Rhodora said she was proud of herself for shaving her hair off although her husband had been nervous leading up to shave-day. Although he had been skeptical about the event, Carlo said he was very proud of his wife on the day. “She is a very brave person – she has jumped out of a plane and gone mountain climbing so this is easy for her,” he joked. “I’m looking forward to the next adventure with her.” Rhodora is still collecting donations for the Cancer Foundation so if you would like to help her cause, visit: http://my.leukaemia.

A Johnsonville woman was looking for a challenge last year so she decided to raise thousands of dollars by shaving her hair for cancer. Rhodora Jaminola took part in the Leukaemia and Blood Cancer New Zealand’s signature fundraising event – Shave for a Cure. She chose to shave her hair on Friday, April 8 at Johnsonvale Rest Home where she works as a nurse. “Everyone here has been so supportive,” Rhodora said. To raise funds Rhodora sold food, put together raffles and gained donations on her Shave for a Cure web page. After losing her locks Rhodora raised a whopping $7145, far exceeding her target of $5000. The rest home lounge was full of spectators who were there to support Rhodora on the big day. While the hair shaving was happening there was an auction of donated goods including nail polish, eye shadow and even a Botox package valued at $400 to

Former regional councillor regains his seat By Sharnahea Wilson

lost out to Sue Kedgley. Ms Kedgley proposed the Regional Council appoint Mr Ponter despite protest from Councillor Judith Aitken who moved the seat remain unfilled so as to not give him an unfair advantage in this year’s elections. “I am humbled by the fact I have been selected by my peers,” Mr Ponter said. “They must have seen something in me during my first term.” During his time on council, Mr Ponter will focus on public transport. He said it still remains “the big issue” in Wellington. “Something I pushed for in my last term on the council was integrated ticketing.”

A former Greater Wellington Regional councillor has regained his seat after being appointed onto the council last Wednesday. Kelburn politician Daran Ponter was pleasantly surprised when he was told he would be a Regional Councillor up until the local government elections in October. The decision on April 6 came as a result of former chairwoman Fran Wilde resigning from her role on the council before the end of her term. Mr Ponter represented Wellington City on the Regional Council for three years from 2010-2013 but when he ran again in 2013 he

Mr Ponter wants to ensure people can swap from different bus and train services using the same card. “We shouldn’t be punishing people for going through two zones.” Regional councillor Nigel Wilson, who supported the appointment of Mr Ponter, said he was an important part of the team when he was last on the council. “Darren made a huge contribution to public transport in Wellington. “He is very hard working and I expect he has a lot to contribute,” he said. Mr Ponter has announced his intention to stand for the Regional Council again and

although he said it was “helpful to be appointed” he will continue to campaign as usual up until October. Mr Ponter will be sworn in on May 26.

75 years of learning By Sharnahea Wilson

Generations of Karori Playcentre families are celebrating the 75th anniversary of their wellloved centre. Past and present members of the playcentre will celebrate throughout the month of April with a picnic, sausage sizzle and open sessions at the playcentre. Anna Rose who is now a playcentre grandmother started playcentre with her third child in the 1970s. “I had returned to Wellington having spent a few years overseas. My son needed some fun and opportunities to learn with other children and I was looking to establish friendships with other mothers in my local community.

“We both loved it and when my daughter's first child was 18 months old, I started taking her to playcentre,” Anna said. Unique to New Zealand, the playcentre movement was founded during the Second World War, after a discussion between Karori mothers about the difficulties in raising children alone while their husbands were away at war. Karori was the first centre to be established in April 1941, with Kelburn following soon after. By 1943, there were 18 playcentres in Wellington, Palmerston North and Christchurch, and today there are over 450 centres around the country. From the mid-1940s, parents could attend playcentre-run lectures and courses on child

The latest person to join the race for the Wellington mayoralty is long-time Onslow-Western ward councillor Jo Coughlan. Mrs Coughlan announced her candidacy on the morning of April 2, being the fourth member of the Wellington City Council to throw her hat in the ring. The candidate’s top priority is to improve the infrastructure of the city and grow the local economy. Mrs Coughlan said Wellingtonians were frustrated about sitting in their cars for hours trying to get to work, and said they had been “let down by roading”. “We need to double-tunnel The Terrace and Mt Victoria tunnels and see four lanes along Ruahine St to the airport.

her role as Mayor. “I think it’s important when you’re working with a budget of rate payers’ money that you look at it in the same way as you would if you were spending your own money,” she said. Mrs Coughlan said the roading projects were part of "future proofing" the city and the region to accommodate growth. "If you're going to take a strategic view, fixing congestion across the city is a priority," she said. "There's no point growing our port and airport capacity if we can't get freight and passengers to them." The mother of six said she wants Wellington to be a city where her children have the opportunity to get world-class jobs. “We need to future proof the city to accommodate growth.”

“Wellington’s Mayor must lead on this and that is my commitment.” Mrs Coughlan said the costs of this infrastructure would be around $1 billion. “What I would like to do is work with the government to get our roading projects over the line.” The city councillor has represented the Onslow-Western Ward for three terms. Since her re-election in 2010 Mrs Coughlan has led the city’s economic development strategy as economic portfolio leader and served as chair of the economic growth and arts committee. Mrs Coughlan founded Silvereye Communications, which provides public relations and government advice to public and private clients, in 2008 and said her experience as a business owner would help her in

The Karori Event Centre and the Karori Golf Club partnered very effectively holding an Ambrose Tournament at the Club’s links on 3 April. Twentytwo teams of 4 players participated in the 18 hole tournament and many younger participants in the “pitch and put” competition. Julie Crengle, co-chair of the Event Centre Trust described it as a significant community partnership and Jono Wake, President of the Golf Club said that he hoped that this would be the first of a number of annual events of this kind.

The weather is changing and things are moving with autumn coming – but there are some good aspects. The Gale Force Gospel Choir is a group of singers not aligned to any one particular

Over the years the op shop has had growing support from the community and Elaine said locals help out by donating bags of goods to sell. She said, with the support of the community, the Trust has seen the amount of funds the volunteers raise get higher each year. There are plenty of fresh goods on the shelves and racks. The St Johns Trust Op Shop has a reputation for having “the best buys and the most helpful, friendly staff”. Open Tuesday to Friday 10am – 4pm and Saturday 10am – 1pm, the Op Shop is a great place to find some bargains and have a chat with the friendly volunteers.  The Op Shop, located at 7 Beauchamp Street, Kaori, is always looking for extra help so to become a volunteer phone 476 6110.

An experienced dancer and teacher is bringing her skills to the Northern suburbs by way of adult dance classes. Tania Kopytko mixes her love of all styles of dance with her PhD in anthropology to create a unique exercise dance class which she wants to bring to the local community. “I do a lot of floor work and torso work and it’s quite contemporary.” Tania said her classes are for anyone, from people who have always loved dance to people who have never danced before. While studying, Tania focused on the meaning of dance in different cultures around the world. “These classes are great for people who want to explore dance in a non-performance way,” Tania explained. “They are for people who want to use dance to feel good and be healthy.” Tania has always been interested in dance, having performed and choreographed in Northern Ireland and taken part in a cabaret in Palmerston North. “I still perform with Crow’s Feet Dance Collective.” She said her classes are about learning and perfecting the basics. “I want people to use and enjoy

Be Careful What You Wish For Dear Ed, I would like to tick a box where I could control where my tax dollars are spent. Sadly there is no database or software where that could happen. Instead a whim from a Prime Minister to change

the flag has resulted in $26 M down the gurgler. An amount unable to be recovered. People voted to spite the PM and not for the actual referendum itself. I voted for the tea towel design, I didn’t par-

ticularly like the design nor the way the referendum was conducted, but did not want to waste $26 M. That money could be used for so many things. I’ll name three: Refugee Quota, Hospital

Chaplaincies and the new Melanoma Drug. What a waste. Now of course the shortfall in the Lotteries Commission is $25M. Karen Saunders Karori

The community is being asked to get behind an initiative designed to make wishes come true for Johnsonville elders. Cashmere Heights Home has just launched a Random Acts of Kindness initiative which will see one of the home’s elders treated to an extra special outing or gift each month. Recreation officer Kirsty Glasgow says the home’s residents have an active recreation programme and social calendar, but this initiative is about doing something extra special to treat an individual. “We will draw a resident’s name from a hat and do something special for them, like take them to visit somewhere that is meaningful to them or somewhere they’ve always wanted to go, take them out for a meal at a favourite café or restaurant, or maybe buy them a thoughtful present – something we know they’d really enjoy,” says Kirsty. But the Enliven home, which is part of the not-for-profit organisation Presbyterian Support Central, needs support from the

community to make the initiative happen. “The elders here already do a lot of gardening and potting of seeds, so we’ve decided to start a plant stall to help fund the initiative,” Kirsty explains. The community can get behind the initiative by donating plant cuttings, seedling small plastic pots and potting mix. “Once we have enough plants to open the stall, visitors to the home will be able to purchase the plants from a trolley which will be kept in the home’s entrance. The money we make will fund the Random Acts of Kindness for the elders of Cashmere Heights” says Kirsty. PBA If you can help with Cashmere Heights Home’s planting project by donating cuttings, seedlings, plastic pots or potting mix, please email Kirsty.glasgow@psc. or call the home on 04 478 9051.  To find out more about Enliven’s Cashmere Heights Home and Enliven’s other positive ageing services, free phone 0508 ENLIVEN or visit nz.

A Lions Club gift to the community

The Lions Club of Wellington North are delighted to present the Wellington Free Ambulance a LIFEPAK CR Plus Defibrillator for installation in the COUNTDOWN Supermarket at Churchill Drive, Crofton Downs.

A LIFEPAK CR Plus, Defibrillator was presented to Amy Williams Heart Beat co-ordinator with the Wellington Free Ambulance, to be installed in the COUNTDOWN SUPERMARKET at Churchill Drive Crofton Downs.

There are 1.4 million Lions Club Members Worldwide located in 208 countries. Lions Clubs in the community of all 208 countries, spread throughout the world, all have the desire to perform community service, often with many geographic differences. They still all share a common belief that our community is what we make it. Our members are a network of clubs united in helping others, whether it be health, sight, famine, disaster, raising funds all satisfying a need, and it all begins at club level. The Lions Movement was first started by Melvin Jones in America and has grown throughout the world. Religion, race, colour plays no part in welfare consideration in the Lions

movement. Lions is the only Service Club that has connection to, and is recognised by the United Nations.

Poppy Day on the way The annual Poppy Day is coming up on Friday, in the lead up to the 101st anniversary of Anzac Day. Volunteers will be stationed on the streets and at malls, collecting donations and giving out poppies in support of Anzac Day. Chairman of the Johnsonville

RSA Welfare Trust Terry Knight said they are always looking for extra volunteers to collect on Poppy Day. “It is the only income we have to provide welfare services for people in need.” He said in the past people have been very generous in supporting

Poppy Day. It is a team effort each year to sell the poppies, replenish poppy boxes and collect donations. Ter r y said if people want to volunteer on Friday, April 15 they ca n send a n ema il to “The more the merrier,” he said.

“Charity begins at home,” sustainability expert says By Rosel Labone MASSEY JOURNALISM STUDENT

Victoria University has appointed a new Assistant Vice Chancellor of Sustainability, and she is set to bring her big – and small – thinking to Wellington. Netherlands-born economist and ecologist Marjan van den Belt has been appointed to the position following her role as director of ecological economics research at Massey University in Palmerston North. She believes when it comes to environmental issues, charity begins at home. “To whatever extent I can, I try and practise what I preach,” she said. Her edible garden includes vertically-growing beans – a spacesaver in the midst of increasing urban sprawl. Marjan said it’s one of the small ways people can start something big, and she is always looking for ways to make effective use of the everyday urban environment. “Currently my whole garden is edible.” “When I look at a roof I see a watershed rather than a problem. I think: ‘Oh, that’s a great place to grow climbing beans.’” She is speaking from an international perspective. Growing up in Rotterdam shaped her thoughts

on food production in urban centres. “Distribution channels from New Zealand to China are easier than around Wellington. “That shouldn’t be the case.” Food production is just one of the many facets of Marjan’s career. She was the environmental economist at Sweden’s largest energy generator and distributor, Vattenfall.

Did you know • The use of the poppy as a symbol of remembrance derives from the poppy being the first plant to re-emerge from the churned up soil on the soldier’s graves during World War I. • The first Poppy Day in New Zealand was held the day before Anzac day in 1922. • Since 2015 the poppy has been made in New Zealand after three years of being constructed in China and Australia. Before going to China the poppies had been New Zealand made for 83 years.

At Victoria University she hopes to examine how human societies fit within the broader ecosystems we depend on. “I’m considering where we want to go, what do we currently have, and how can we make it better.” She is house-hunting and priority number one is being able to walk to work.  Marjan will be presenting a public lecture on sustainability at 5:30 pm, June 2, Victoria University.

The parade will assemble in Burgess Road at 9.15am, and step off at 9.30am for the march to the service at the Salvation Army Citadel, 125-137 Johnsonville Road commencing at 10.00am. For further information, please contact Terry Knight, telephone 04-237 6212, mobile 027-277 3387, email

See what it would be like to live and learn at our main campus in Wairarapa, check out the facilities and meet our tutors.

Journey of Discovery in the Wairarapa The Wairarapa’s pretty colonial towns and boutique wineries have long been a major drawcard for visitors. However with ANZAC Day approaching and much of the country preparing for centenary commemorations, The Independent Herald winds back the clock to take a journey of discovery in the region which is only an hour’s drive or train ride from Wellington. First up is The Fell Locomotive Museum on the corner of SH2 and Lyon Street in the center of Featherston. This Museum houses H199, the only locomotive of its type in the world, and Fell brake-van F210. H199 is one of six engines designed for use on New Zealand’s famous Rimutaka Incline a 3-mile (4.8km) railway that used to operate between the settlements of Cross Creek and Summit in the South Wairarapa. Built in Bristol, England, in 1875, H199 has been fully restored and its story was recently brought to life in Joy Cowley’s children’s picture book Hero of the Hill. In addition to seeing H199, visitors can learn more about the interesting stories linked with the Railway and the Featherston Military Camp. These stories will be further highlighted during Featherston Booktown literary weekend being held from May 20-22nd with Tours of Historic Featherston being held alongside a full programme of events featuring leading authors and booksellers. Further north in the township of Greytown, renowned for its distinctive boutiques, cafes and restaurants, is The Cobblestones Early Settlers Museum located on the original site of the stables operated by Cobb & Co and the Hastwells to provide a mail and passenger service between Wellington and the Wairarapa from 1866. Here visitors take a step back in time to the pioneering days of the Wairarapa. Whilst in Masterton, take the short walk around the corner to Aratoi: Wairarapa’s Museum of Art & History to see the Featherston Camp Centenary Exhibition, which runs until July 31st 2016. Discover the stories behind one of New Zealand’s most important World

A special ANZAC Day service will be held at 10.30am at the Tinui War Memorial Hall followed by a flyover of WWI fighters and a WWII Tiger Moth at 11am. There will also be in attendance nearly 100 descendants of the original 1916 vicar, the Rev Basil Ashcroft; a troop from Queen Alexandra’s Mounted Rifles Regiment; a large contingent from the Patriots Defence Force Motorcycle Club and a large number of Scouts and Venturers. The guest speaker will be Lt Col Aaron Mikkelsen, himself a descendant of Rev Ashcroft and following the service people can walk up to the ANZAC Memorial Cross on Mt Maunsell, which overlooks the valley.

Crowd ‘joyful’ over play Funeral Director


By Sharnahea Wilson

Audience members laughed, cried and sympathised with the cast of Joyful and Triumphant at Circa Theatre during its opening week. Written in the 1990s by renowned New Zealand playwright Robert Lord, Joyful and Triumphant has been brought back to life by its original director and three of its original cast members. The play portrays a family over 40 years, from 1949 to 1989, and each scene is set on Christmas Day in a different year. The audience travelled through time A solid with the family, through their personal battles during significant political events in New Zealand.

Director of the play Susan Wilson of Kelburn also directed the play back in 1992 when it was featured in the Wellington Festival. Susan said the play covered everything that happened socially and politically during the 40 years it spans across – from the stock market crash to the Springbok tour. The cast members took the audience on a journey through births, deaths, marriages, and many Prime Ministers of both sides. While it made strong political statements, the play allowed the audience to laugh while also reviewing their own country’s history.  Visit to purchase tickets, the play will run until May 7.
