The problematic pathway

Pollard Street residents had the chance to air their grievances at last week’s Wainuiomata Community Board meeting. Residents of the street gathered to ask the community board to close the alley way between Pollard Street and Antrim Crescent. Various residents had the opportunity to speak and complained the path joining the two roads was being used as an alley way for youth who were vandalising and damaging private property and cars on the street. They said there had been a

Young actress to steal the show Continued from page 2 “It’s really nice coming into community theatre where everyone knows each other. It’s a really nice environment. It’s a really good community of people.” Brooke said one of the most exciting things about the project was the opportunity to work with a real animal- her own dog, Milly, who will be playing the role of Annie’s dog Sandy. “It’s actually my dog. It’s definitely exciting getting to be on stage with her,” she said. Co-director Barry Paterson said the theatre had introduced Milly to the show slowly and gave her ample opportunity to get to know the stage without being overwhelmed. He said it was helpful Milly

petition to get the path closed with 50 signatures on it. A representative for the group asked the board- “Why does this street have to put up with this sort of behaviour?” The community board listened and debated the issues arising from closing the pathway as it was a convenient walk space for the public to use. Following the presentation from the locals the community board decided to begin the motions for creating an environment between the two streets to best benefit all parties involved.

was Brooke’s dog. As well as having Milly on board, Barry said rehearsals for the show had been going “really well”. “We’ve got a good, enthusiastic cast and we’re really excited to show the community a really fun show,” he said. Co-director Barbara Wray agreed with Barry. “We’re in the final polishing stages of the production now. We can’t wait to show everyone what we’ve created,” she said.  Annie will be running from Wednesday May 25 until Saturday June 4. No shows Monday and Tuesday. Tickets will be available to the public from Wednesday April 27 from Clive’s Chemist.

The Warehouse gives back By Emma McAuliffe

people in the community,” she said. Whitney Morgan from the Wainuiomata Hockey Club said money raised would go towards their turf at Wainuiomata High school. Money raised for Arakura Kindergarten would go towards building their new playground, head teacher Debbie Henderson said. Service team leader at the Wainuiomata warehouse, Crissie Lightfoot, said it was important the community knew where the money was going when they bought plastic bags. She said the Warehouse and the organisations were very grateful for the community’s support in their annual charity drive. “We’d just like to say a big thank you to the community. Without the support of the community we can’t do what we do,” she said.

The Wainuiomata Warehouse has donated nearly $1000 to locals in need thanks to an in store initiative. This year, nine cents from every 10 cents spent on a plastic bag at the Warehouse went to a local organisation nominated by the customer. This year those benefitting from the money were the Wainuiomata Hockey Club, Arakura Kindergarten and The Happiness Inn Charitable Trust. Olivia Stonyer from the Happiness Inn said it was wonderful to receive money for the charity and said the money would go towards supplying food for the soup kitchen on Rowe Parade. “It’s great. It’s just wonderful. We just want to thank Crissie and the Wainuiomata Warehouse and all the wonderful

‘Suburban Dreams’ in Wainuiomata By Emma McAuliffe

A short film entitled ‘Nui’, discovering the hidden treasures of Wainuiomata is currently on display at the Dowse Art Museum.

Curator of the piece, Tim Barlow, said he made the film with students at the Rangatahi Learning Centre and they came up with the locations in the film together, each sharing places the other had not

experienced. The film explores various locations in Wainuiomata including the historic tunnel at the bottom of the Wainuiomata Hill and the Wainuiomata coast. “I wasn’t aware of the tunnel. They suggested most of the locations where they hung out and liked. I knew of some places they didn’t,” Tim said. He said the Dowse approached him after the project ‘Elbes Milkbar’ to create something for their ‘Suburban Dreams’ exhibit. The exhibit aims to explore suburbia and how the suburbs shape the New Zealand national identity and the collaborative project is a digital surround

Definite benefits to being an incognito Lotto winner By Julie Iles, MASSEY JOURNALISM STUDENT

Design a Planet Hutt City Libraries are celebrating Global Astronomy Month by inviting locals to design their very own planet. The competition is open to all ages to create a planet any way they choose. Prizes include big NASA space travel posters and goodies from Toy World. Submissions are open until Saturday April 30. Creations can be submitted at any Hutt City Library or emailed to

Local residents may have missed out on a $22.2 million jackpot in Powerball on Saturday, but a series of smaller wins recently have made Lower Hutt one of the luckiest regions in New Zealand. The winning $1 million ticket for last Wednesday’s First Division Lotto draw was sold at the Moera Corner Dairy. It has been part of a lucky streak in the area. A Wainuiomata resident won $1 million with Lotto First Division just two weeks ago.

Victoria University School of Psychology Associate Dean, Dr Marc Wilson said New Zealand research shows that the happiness associated with coming into money is dependent on personality, and socioeconomic status. “Our research in New Zealand shows that it will make you a little happier, but… money most strongly predicts happiness for people the less they earn.” A Lotto win for those earning more than $200,000 per year would have less of an effect on happiness than a win for someone earning $10,000, he said.

“Indeed, the relationship between money and happiness mirrors the relationship between … stress and money— the less money, the more stress you experience,” said Marc. The Wainuiomata winner wished to remain anonymous in the aftermath of his big win, at Moera Corner Dairy but told Lotto New Zealand: “I’m also looking forward to being able to help my family …that’s what will make me the happiest.” In fact, according to the New Zealand Lotteries Commission, 56 per cent of big Lotto winners donate funds to help family.

Marc recommended people “keep track of what they've promised people or preferably don't promise anything—there are lots of examples of people whose relationships have been affected because of money.” Though most people don't blow their winnings, he said. The lotteries commission reported 85 per cent of big Lotto winners in New Zealand kept the same job they had before their win. Though many indulge in wild winning purchases. A face lift, a gastric bypass, a buffalohunting trip, and, of course, a Ferrari were among the purchases of previous winners.

Community of Learning discuss education By Emma McAuliffe

More than 100 people discussed what they wanted education to be like in the community, at a discussion evening hosted by Wainuiomata school principals last Tuesday. Community members in attendance included parents, Board of Trustee members, Hutt South MP Trevor Mallard, Greater Wellington Regional Councillor Ken Laban as well as representatives for Hutt City Mayor Ray Wallace and National List MP Chris Bishop.

Principal of Arakura School, Mark Kibblewhite, in his introductory speech said the principals deliberately decided to make it a conversation rather than a meeting. He said the schools had decided to invite a facilitator, Tess Casey, from Inclusive New Zealand to ensure this would happen. “I’m looking forward to hearing what everyone here has to say,” Mark said. There were four questions about what the experience of education in Wainuiomata was to be like.

Those in attendance worked in groups to discuss a question then had the opportunity to provide their answers before moving to a new table with a new group of people. Tess said this provided the opportunity to meet others in the community and discuss ideas with others they may not usually associate with. The principals will now review what was discussed by the community, to continue their own consideration on what will be part of their Community of Learning initiative.

Scrabble fun at the library By Emma McAuliffe

Local wordsmiths had the chance to play scrabble against others in their community as part of the Wainuiomata Library’s celebration of World Scrabble Day last Wednesday. Events Manager at the Wainuiomata Community Library, Tania Snoep, estimated that at least half a dozen people came to the library

throughout the day to take part in the game. Luca van Etten, 14, said he had been playing lots of scrabble against others in the community. He said scrabble was his favourite game. “Scrabble is my game. I’m the bomb at scrabble,” he said. Did You Know • If all the Scrabble tiles ever produced were placed end to end

they would reach the equivalent of eight times around the earth. • Scrabble celebrated its 60th birthday in 2008. • World Scrabble Day falls on April 13 because it’s the birthday of its inventor Alfred Mosher Butts, born in 1899. Luca van Etten after a game of Scrabble

1080 in the valley Around 50 residents against the use of 1080 in the Rimutaka ranges gathered at a public meeting at a private residence two weeks ago. A local speaker urged the public in attendance to “just say no” to the use of 1080 in the area and said he had told the Wellington Regional Council “you are not poisoning my land”. Manufactured 1080 (sodium fluoroacetate) is a poison used to create a toxic bait product primarily dispersed from helicopters throughout selected native bush in New Zealand to knock down populations of pests. It is also used to help control the spread of bovine tuberculosis

(TB), a disease carried by possums which can infect cattle and deer herds threatening one of New Zealand's prime export markets. Residents at the meeting were concerned the 1080 drop planned for the Rimutaka ranges later this year would endanger their livestock and themselves as well as the natural environment. One resident in particular was concerned the 1080 would cause cancer and be dropped close to houses. OSPRI is the group in charge of the forthcoming drop to eradicate pests with TB. OSPRI TB free TB eradication and research manager, Dr Paul


Livingstone, said according to USFDA there was no link between 1080 and cancer. OSPRI spokesman Nick Hancox said the permit for the aerial operation buffer and OSPRI’s own guidelines meant no 1080 would be dropped within 250m of any dwelling in September. “By regulation we’re not allowed to apply any bait within 150 metres of any dwelling… we’ll add 100 metres onto that at least,” he said.

Enliven offers free classes for World Tai Chi day World Tai Chi Day is a day to raise awareness and applaud the health benefits resulting from regular Tai Chi. World Tai Chi Day is on Saturday 30 April this year and Enliven is inviting the community to try their modified Tai Chi sessions free of charge for the week leading up to the event. There will be a class available in Wainuiomata on a free trial basis at Wainuiomata’s Union Church on Friday April 29, from 9.30am to 10.30am. Enliven Community Support general manager Bronwyn Williams said Enliven’s modified Tai Chi classes are open for people of all ages, but are particularly targeted towards the needs of older people. “Our modified Tai Chi classes are particularly beneficial for older people because studies show that it’s very good for improving balance and flexibility, circulation and heart health with regular attendance,” Bronwyn explained.

“It also helps to reduce the risk of falls, which is one of the most common reasons for people to be hospitalised.” Enliven Tai Chi participant Ann Greenwood said Tai Chi helped to restore her balance. “I first started Enliven’s Tai Chi classes because I had been falling a lot … my doctor made me promise to start doing Tai Chi.” “I went from having three falls in a short period of time to none at all. Your balance is so much better when you come to these classes,” she said. Enliven’s Tai Chi classes are $5 per class and concession cards are available. Tai Chi is held at the Union Church at the same time and day each week. There’s no need to book, just show up on the day. All are welcome to attend.  For more information about Enliven’s modified Tai Chi classes, call 0508 36 54 83, email or visit www.

Workplace wellbeing on Lower Hutt’s agenda The new Hutt Valley Workplace Wellbeing Special Interest Group was launched last week at the Pelorus Trust Sportshouse. The initiative is a joint effort between Healthy Families Lower Hutt and the Human Resources Institute of New Zealand (HRINZ) Hutt Valley Branch, with support from the Hutt Valley Chamber of Commerce and the Hutt Valley Employers’ Health and Safety Forum. President of the HRINZ Hutt Valley Branch Felicity Hislop said, “Promoting health and wellbeing in the workplace says a lot about you as an employer and how much you value your staff. It’s an important focus for Human Resources professionals.” Healthy Families Lower Hutt Manager Hayley Goodin said, “The aim of the group is to support and promote workplace wellbeing within the Hutt Valley.

Memorial wall for High School By Emma McAuliffe

Wainuiomata High School now has a special place to remember

the international students they will farewell over the year. A memorial wall was set up near the student services and

“Increased productivity, reduced stress levels, more job satisfaction, less sickness and sick leave, greater staff retention and enhanced corporate image were just some of the benefits of a healthy workplace,” said Hayley. Mayor Wallace opened the event and welcomed this joint initiative. “This is about empowering people to take action and work together. Good health is essential for a thriving community and we all have a role to play in creating this,” he said.  There is an open invite for all Hutt Valley workplaces to get involved in this exciting new initiative. Email huttvalley@ to register your interest. You do not need to be a member of HRINZ to be a part of the group. The first Hutt Valley Workplace Wellbeing Special Interest Group event will be a workshop on mental wellbeing later this month.

careers offices last week, for the school’s exchange students to place a handprint before they return home. International Student Dean, Virginia Wilson, said there would eventually be around 150 handprints on the wall. The wall would be a great way for students and staff to remember exchange students in years to come, Virginia said. She said the memorial wall was suggested by the Board of Trustees and International Student sub-committee members and Resene sponsored the paint to make it happen. The first hand prints were placed by Thai exchange students, who left Wainuiomata last Tuesday. Virginia called the visit “really successful” and said some students were staying for a longer period of time because they enjoyed their stay so much.  Do you have special memories with exchange students? Let us know at news@wsn. Current exchange students Carla Striewe, Kyra Barthel and Yukina Ikeda pose with the wall.

Collectors for Poppy Day By Emma McAuliffe

Members of the Wainuiomata Valley RSA were out last Friday selling poppies for the RSA’s Annual Appeal. The Annual Appeal is held before Anzac Day to provide aid to veterans in times of need. RSA members Lynne and Bob McLaughlan said they thought it was important to help out with the appeal and they enjoyed spending the time at Countdown seeing people in the community. Veterans Jim France and Patricia Hosking

collected in the Wainuiomata Shopping Centre and said it was important to collect to remember those who had fought in previous wars. Both were involved in the armed forces previously. Patricia said she joined the armed forces as a telephonist in 1950. Jim said he had fought in Vietnam and had learnt a lot from his mentors who fought in WWII. Other RSA members collecting agreed it was important to collect to remember those who fought in wars.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old; Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning We will remember them.

Anzac Day National commemoration This year, New Zealand celebrates 100 years since Anzac Day was first marked in 1916. Anzac Day takes place each year on April 25 and commemorates all New Zealanders killed in war, while also honouring returned servicemen and women. April 25 marks the anniversary of the landing of New Zealand and Australian soldiers, on the Gallipoli Peninsula in 1915 and WW1 centenary commemorations began last year. The

aim was to capture the Dardanelles, the gateway to the Bosphorus and the Black Sea, however, at the end of the campaign, Gallipoli was still held by its Turkish defenders. Among those who lost their lives in the Gallipoli campaign were 2779 New Zealanders, almost one in four of those who served on Gallipoli. As always, ceremonies are held at war memorials up and down New Zealand and in places overseas where New Zealanders gather to pay tribute.

This quote made by Ataturk, a great Turkish statesman in 1934, is inscribed on the memorial at Anzac Cove, Gallipoli. It is also inscribed on the Ataturk memorial at Tarakena Bay, which is said to be similar to the coast around Gallipoli:

“Those heroes that shed their blood and lost their lives; You are now lying in the soil of a friendly country. Therefore rest in peace. There is no difference between the Johnnies and the Mehemets to us where they lie side by side here in this country of ours. You, the mothers, who sent their sons from far away countries, wipe away your tears; your sons are now lying in our bosom and are at peace. After having lost their lives on this land they have become our sons as well.”

Poppy dress a “tribute” A local woman has made a dress of 500 crochet poppies as a tribute to those who fought in WWI. Jaymie Earl said she first started making the crochet poppies as part of the group ‘5000 Poppies’ last year. ‘5000 Poppies’ was set up to commemorate those who died in the WWI

and WWII. The initiative started in Australia and sine moved to New Zealand and all over the world. More than 300,000 poppies were eventually contributed and used in Melbourne’s Anzac memorial in 2015. Jaymie said following this, she decided she wanted to do her own tribute to those who were involved in the war, and use the poppies to make a dress. She said this was especially important to her as both her grandfather and father went to war, and both were lucky to come home. “I’ve always had an interest in the war. It’s always fascinated and horrified me,” she said. She said she “felt strongly” about doing her own tribute and the 500 crochet poppies have become part of a quilted dress she created. They are in a cross pattern on the dress in memorial of those who died, she said. Jaymie said the dress took around eight months to make part time and each poppy took around 15 minutes. She said although the dress did not make it into last year’s World of Wearable Arts competition it had been displayed at Flower Shows part of an Anzac. Jaymie’s dress is currently display at Knit World, Queens Drive, Lower Hutt.  Do you have something others in Wainuiomata may be interested in learning more about? Let us know at

A tug of war taking place.

Students compete for house points By Emma McAuliffe

Students at Wainuiomata High School had the chance to compete against each other in a school wide ‘tug of war’ last week. The entire school gathered on the field last Friday afternoon in their Houses to compete for the most House Points. Wainuiomata High School Sport Coordinator, Peter Cowan, said

each House had the opportunity to host an event each term. Apiata house decided to host a house ‘tug of war’ for the end of term one, he said. He said it was the second year the house competition had been held. Each year group had a go at winning house points by competing in ‘best of three’ sets. The year level pulls were followed by a final house pull with

two students from each year level competing. Five boys and five girls were allowed to compete on each side for each match held. The scores were close throughout the afternoon but eventually Ngata took out first place. Hosting house, Apiata came second and Tuwhare and Rutherford came third and fourth respectively.

Hockey Update Wainuiomata women’s hockey had another great week this week with a strong win for the Premier 3 team. The premier 3 team beat Eastern Hutt 4-0 on Saturday. The team played a strong game and with each win are becoming a step closer to their goal of

reaching the Premier 2 grade for the season. The team said the goals came through some excellent team work and passing through the field. Jo Martin and Navade Blake each scored a goal and Paris Coleman secured the other two.

Kazmia Morgan-Rako plays in the Premier 3 team

The team will play Harbour City this weekend at Fraser Park at 4.30. The reserve 3 team had a 3-0 nil loss on Sunday but created many of their own opportunities to score. This Sunday they play at 2.15pm at Fraser Park.

The retirement of Grant Elliott from one day international cricket is sadder than it would have been two years ago. The 36-year-old called time this month following New Zealand's limp semifinal loss to England at the World Twenty20 Championships but has yet to make a decision on the shortest form of the game yet. However, he called stumps after proving a point that New Zealand Cricket had ignored for many years - players over 30 can still contribute in a major way in international sport. The South African-born allrounder's seemingly forlorn career was revived last year when New Zealand needed a No 5 batsman for the 50-over World Cup on home soil. What transpired was him being the most unlikely of heroes in the semifinal at Eden Park against fellow big stage chokers South Africa when he hit Dale Steyn for six when five runs were needed off the final two balls. He also scored a gritty half century in the final that was eventually lost to those foul mouthed Aussie's. His heroic fears made him the country's most favourite ex-pat South African since

Andrew Mehrtens. A revolving door of players had been the policy of cricket in this country since the late 1980s. A lack of depth and constant coaching changes were the likely cause but Elliott's selection was one out of the box. While his place in the squad was bemoaned by the Kiwi sports public (myself included) as a clear weakness in the team, the selectors backed his good form in domestic cricket to give him a go. The public wanted talented bad boy batsman Jesse Ryder but the selectors stuck to their guns. How right they were and how wrong we were (the public). Elliott is proof that just because you fail early in your career doesn't mean you're cast to the scrap heap forever. Leg spinner Ish Sodhi is going through a second chance renaissance himself in the team. Sport is littered with remarkable individual sport comebacks and while Elliott's won't be remembered globally, it was a key component in one of the greatest six week periods of New Zealand sporting history. When the Black Caps dared us to dream and we all did.
