A day to remember
By Sharnahea Wilson
Johnsonville residents turned out in droves to Monday’s Anzac Day commemorations to pay their respects to fallen soldiers and current service men and women. The annual parade was led by Warrant Officer Rob Allen of the New Zealand Army, who marched behind the talented bagpipers. Police, Salvation Army representatives, uniformed service men and women, politicians, students and local residents joined the parade which started at Burgess Road and continued down Johnsonville Road to the Salvation Army where a service was held.

Women’s wartime woes
By Rachel Binning
The ‘war to end all wars’ not only changed the lives of thousands of men, it altered the lives of thousands of women forever. Thirty New Zealand and Australian women who lived through World War 1 on the home front shared their stories in the Women of Empire: the untold stories of New Zealand and Australian women in WWI exhibition at Katherine Mansfield House, Thorndon. The exhibition was put together
to “bring attention to women who participated, helped, and made a difference during WWI”, Administrator and Public Programmes Coordinator at Katherine Mansfield House Emily Simons explained. The curators of the exhibition Fiona and Keith Baverstock came up with a saying “not all heroes wore khaki”, Emily said. She explained the exhibition is an opportunity to recognise and showcase women’s wartime stories. The costumes in the travelling
exhibition were selected from the Dressing Australia Museum of Costume Collection. The exhibition has already been in Nelson and Christchurch. Katherine Mansfield House, supported by the Wellington City Council, was happy to host this important historical exhibition. There has been a positive response to the exhibition from a wide variety of ages and good numbers have attended. “People really enjoyed [the exhibition] and really appreciate it is for women,” Emily said.
To help commemorate Anzac Day 2016 Katherine Mansfield House is offering free admission during Anzac week. The public is encouraged to see different aspects of war and how women contributed to it.
The exhibition runs from Tuesday, March 22 until Sunday, May 1. For more information got to: www.womenofempire.com/ women_of_empire/INTRODUCTION_WW1_WOMEN_OF_ EMPIRE.html
Commemorating Anzac Day 100 years on Continued from page 1 Major Clive Nicolson welcomed everyone to the service before a prayer was led by Com-
missioner Garth McKenzie. Wreaths were laid at the steps of the Salvation Army by the Returned and Services Welfare

MC for the service Mark Pickering reminded the crowd of how young some of the fallen soldiers at Gallipoli were. “Many of them were only one or two years older than Samantha and Gregory.” The crowd joined in for the singing of the hymn I Vow to From left, Salvation Army representatives Garth McKenzie, Mel McKenzie, Thee, My Country.

Allen called the parade to attention and retired Royal New Zealand Air Force Wing Commander Terry Knight read The Ode. The Last Post and Reveille played and flag bearers – both New Zealand Army representatives and members of local organisations – lowered their flags. After a minute of silence to remember all those who have died at war, both in Gallipoli and WWII as well as more recent conflicts such as Vietnam and Afghanistan, the crowd ended the service with the National Anthem.

Fundraising for a good cause By Sharnahea Wilson
Funds from an upcoming Mother’s Day high tea are set to make a local woman’s dream come true. In August 2013 when she was 20 weeks pregnant, the rug was pulled out from under Sarah Fields’ feet when her doctor told her that her daughter Lilly Marie wasn’t going to make it. After the devastating news, Sarah joined Sands – a voluntary organisation that provides support and information to parents and families following the loss of a baby or infant. Now Sarah and five other members of Sands Wellington-Hutt Valley are fundraising to go to a conference in Phoenix, Arizona. “There is very little opportunity for training in this area in New Zealand,” Sarah explained. Sarah’s specialty is memory making. When her daughter passed away she created as many
memories as she could in the short time she had. “These memories have to last me a lifetime,” Sarah said. The conference will go for four days including a training day and Sarah hoped she would learn new ways to help out bereaved parents. “There is no right or wrong way to grieve, we just want to let parents know all the options they have,” Sarah said about parents creating memories with their babies while they can. “Even if I just helped one person it would be worth it.” Sarah said with a whole group of them going over to the conference, they will be able to bring back an extensive amount of knowledge to help local parents. To discover more about Sands, and their fundraising events visit: http://www.sandswellingtonhutt.org.nz/ or search Sands Wellington-Hutt Valley on Facebook.
Train station more 4 accessible Wednesday November 4, 2015 The Wellington Railway Station is the latest location in the city to host a mobility scooter. Mayor Celia WadeBrown officially launched the mobility scooter at a presentation on Aprill 11 which included members from council-funded accessibility champions Be.Accessible. The train station hosting the mobility scooter meant people with mobility issues could more easily link up with the city, public transport, and the train services. An audit by Be.Accessible to measure accessible features of facilities awarded a gold rating to the Wellington Railway Station, and more recently Pukeahu National War Memorial Park.

Craft workshops provide holiday fun By Jacob Beleski Massey Journalism Student
Scented candles and decorated notebooks were on display at the ‘Make it!’ craft workshop held at the Churton Park Community Centre last
week. The craft workshop programme provided an entertaining school holiday activity for children in the Wellington area. Five-year-old Phoebe had an amazing time, and had a few

ideas about what to do with the items she had made. “I’m going to give one to mummy, she will really like it.” There were four workshops over the holiday period, held at Churton Park, Wadestown, Petone and Island Bay. They were aimed towards children aged five to 10, but catered to a range of ages. Churton Park Community Centre hosted 14 children at a workshop on April 18. Each holiday the workshops introduce different crafts. To date they have included felted pictures and snowmen, pebble art, cookie decorating, bunting and Christmas candy sleighs. This time they got to roll honey-scented candles from colourful beeswax and also give a notebook a makeover with decorative paper and embellishments.
The workshops have run during school holidays since July, 2015 at community centres around Wellington. It cost $20 per person, and all materials were provided for the children to use. For co-organiser Jann Freitas, it was great to see the kids enjoying themselves and being productive. “We encourage kids from five to 10 but it isn’t limited to that. We have four year olds with caregivers and also often have tweens taking part.” Jann has plenty of experience with kid’s workshops, having been a regular at Churton Park Community Centre for a number of years. Planning has already started for the workshops coming up over the next holiday breaks. “We’ve already got some fun activities planned for July and later in the year,” Jann said.
Last week the Independent Herald ran two stories on up-coming book fairs – one of which had the wrong date.

Iconic cable car to have $3 million upgrade
Smarter parking in the capital Wellington commuters will be able to pay and simply walk away as part of the new ‘Pay by Space’ parking system being rolled out in the city and expected to go into operation later this year. The Council is now set to install 3500 parking sensors around the CBD after trialling the systems in Blair and Allen streets. Councillor Andy Foster said all existing payment methods for on-street parking will be accepted on the new machines. This is expected to be complete toward the end of the year.
Join a cycle challenge Children's Charity Variety is calling for keen travellers to join the 2016 Thailand Cycle Challenge in late August, taking the ‘paths less travelled’ over 13 days to explore the charm and wonders of Thailand at handlebar level. The aim of this special trip is to fundraise for Variety's 'Bikes for Kids' programme which each year provides around 450 deserving or disadvantaged children with the freedom and independence of owning their very own bike. To find out more, download a booking form and itinerary at www.variety.org.nz, or contact email@example.com.
Wellington’s iconic Cable Car is to close down for two months over winter for a $3 million upgrade. The two Cable Car carriages will be given a makeover from June 7 to July 31, and the electric drive and winding gear that hauls the carriages up the slope from Lambton Quay to Kelburn will be upgraded. Chair of Wellington City Council’s transport committee Andy Foster said it has been almost 40 years since the existing Cable Car system was commissioned. “We’ve estimated that each car has made something like 1.2 million trips up and down the hill over that time – and more than 30 million passengers have been carried. “Technology has also changed and improved enormously since 1979 – and it’s time for the necessary upgrades to keep the service running well into the middle of the 21st century.” Mr Foster said the improvements could allow two more ‘round trips’ per hour during the busiest periods – meaning
an extra 150-200 passengers could be carried each hour. Wellington Cable Car Limited’s Chief Executive Simon Fleisher said the upgrade would be tackled by Doppelmayr/ Garaventa Goup – the AustrianSwiss cable car and funicular railway manufacturer that provided the power and control equipment when the service was upgraded in the late 1970s. Mr Fleisher said the combination of improved controls, more power and greater safety will enable the cars to stop and start more quickly and efficiently. “The Cable Car will never break any speed records – but we can make it a bit quicker while enhancing passenger comfort.” The interior and exterior of the cars will also be refurbished including the exterior finish, the internal linings, seats and the lighting system. A temporary bus service will run from Lambton Quay to Kelburn, via Victoria University, while the upgrade is under way, operating every 20 minutes in both directions.
Youngsters participate in Anzac commemorations By Sharnahea Wilson
Students and teachers of Churton Park School were excited to be a part of this
year’s Anzac Day Parade in Johnsonville. Principal Anne Lye said each year students from the primary school are selected

ria University’s main campus was influenced by the company’s offer of a donation of £1000 if the university were located in Kelburn, so students would patronise the car when travelling between the city and the university. The Cable Car is used by about 1 million people each year.
FACTS: The original Cable Car railway was built and operated by the Kelburn & Karori - Tramway Company. The line opened to the public on 22 February 1902. The Cable Car’s original steam-powered winding gear was replaced by an electric motor in 1933. The hilltop location of Victo-

to join the parade and then lay a wreath during the service outside of the Salvation Army. “Our two head councillors present a wreath from the school as this is one way we can show, and value, the sacrifices made for our country and us,” she said. Anne said it is important for young people to learn about Anzac Day while they are still at school. “It’s one thing to read about it but it is another thing to actually participate in Anzac Day. “This is one opportunity to make it more real to them,” Anne said about Monday’s parade. She said last year was differ-
ent because she, along with the pupils and their parents, went to Pukehau for the 100 year centenary of Gallipoli. “That was a 3.45am meeting at school before we headed into town.” Sixteen students from Churton Park School took part in the parade this year on April 25 with the 10-year-old student council representatives Emma Cooper, Tyson Lang and Philip Liu laying the wreath. Anne said the student council participate in many events throughout the year and will organise a school-wide activity to raise money for the school’s World Vision sponsored child.

A lifetime of work
100,000th visitor When Kathryn Jones walked into Zealandia last week she had no idea the staff would be celebrating her arrival. As the 100,000th visitor since July 2015, Zealandia CEO Paul Atkins congratulated her with a free private night tour of the urban ecosanctuary. "It's a pretty big milestone for us, and we just wanted to share that excitement with the lucky number 100,000th visitor," said Ian Phillips, Commercial Development Manager at Zealandia. With a couple of months left until the end of the financial year, it has already been a record-breaking season.

An elderly craftsman is still sharp when it comes to producing creative wooden carvings. Johnsonville resident Bobby Hannah has been making wood carvings – including walking sticks, animals, characters and horses, for many years. Although he reduced the amount of carvings he created after his wife died, Bobby still has a significant collection of pieces in his work shed and in his house. Bobby’s love of creating things came to him at a young age. “I went to the pictures a lot when I was a kid. I saw a flick about John Dillinger and was amazed that he had escaped from prison using a wooden gun. “I made my first wooden gun over 70 years ago,” Bobby said. After that Bobby’s love of carving took off and although his specialty is making walking sticks (of which he has hundreds) the craftsman has also created many interesting pieces including a pub scene featuring a cowboy, a piano and a dog. One of Bobby’s much loved carvings was a replica he made of legendary comedic actor Charlie Chaplin. “That was my wife’s favourite one – she loved the cinema,” he explained. The carver has made many gifts for his family over the years including rocking horses and a cradle for his grandchildren. Bobby could spend weeks on one piece of work, depending on how much detail it had.

He has worked with all different kinds of wood over the years. “I used to pick a lot of driftwood up from the beach with my son.”
STARTS THIS WEEKEND
Although Bobby doesn’t make as many pieces as he used to, he continues his love of carving. “I still make different bits and pieces.”

Offers of free food are hardly ever turned down, which is unlucky for one community garden in Khandallah. Recently, users of the Khandallah Community Gardens set out a basket of fresh vegetables, with a sign saying ‘food is free.’ Someone took that a little too far and unfortunately made off with the basket as well as the food. Only the sign was left behind. “That’s the first time we’ve done it because we haven’t had a huge amount volume-wise to do it,” secretary of Khandallah Community Gardens Kate Misa said. She said she was disappointed the basket had disappeared. “I knew that it was a bit of a risk,” she said. Normally, people are encouraged to drop by the gardens and pick what they need. The Khandallah Community Gardens is still in its early stages as planting begun at the end of last year. Fruit trees were planted first and it has taken a while for the

vegetable side of the garden to come through. “We are all busy and we didn’t want high maintenance stuff like veggies that you have to go every couple of days to water,” Kate said. The basket had contained a harvest of potatoes and tomatoes, as well as bags of seeds. Plum, pear, apple and lemon trees are all grown in the gar-
dens and common kitchen herbs are available to pick as well. A committee of six volunteers run the gardens and Kate estimated there are about 50 people who regularly drop by as well. These regulars help maintain the gardens. They are encouraged to do a little something every time they stop by, like weeding or watering a plant. For Kate, the gardens are a
great way to bring the community together. Families drop by to pick food and school children often stop by for a quick snack on their way home. She hoped they could find older people to go to the gardens too and draw from their gardening knowledge. The garden is looking for more volunteers, to sign up email firstname.lastname@example.org

An online voting trial cancellation has been labeled a ‘lost opportunity’ ahead of this year’s local government elections. Wellington’s Deputy Mayor, Justin Lester, said the cancellation of the online voting trial proposed for this year’s local body election was disappointing – and a lost opportunity. Associate Local Govern-
ment Minister Louise Upston announced on April 19 the online voting trial proposed for this year’s local body elections would not proceed as more work is required to ensure a trial meets public and government expectations.

“But I can also understand the reasons for the cancellation – until everyone is confident we have a hack-proof, bullet-proof online system in place, we can’t go ahead. “I urge the Government, however, to continue efforts to make online voting a reality – both at national and local level – as soon as possible,” Mr Lester said.

“I decided that I was going to step down as Mayor of Porirua last year.” Porirua Mayor Nick Leggett is the latest candidate to announce he will make a bid for the Wellington mayoralty in October’s elections. Mr Leggett declared he had resigned from the Labour Party and would stand as in independent in the mayoralty race, on April 10. Rumours have been rife Mr Leggett would throw his hat in the ring for several months – however he insisted the decision to run was only made recently after a discussion with his wife. “I decided that I was going to step down as Mayor of Porirua last year. “Wellington can do better and I was invited by quite a broad range of people in Wellington to consider running for the mayoralty there.” Mr Leggett said he believed he could offer Wellington a “fresher, yet experienced leadership”. “We need a mayor that can get Wellington going again and encapsulate a vision of all the great things Wellington contains and then drive it forward.”
He said if elected, he would look at leveraging on Wellington’s assets. He said he would focus on health, the environment, economic growth and affordability for all Wellingtonians. Mr Leggett first joined the council table at the age of 19 and spent three terms as a Porirua City Councillor, before being elected Mayor of Porirua in 2010. “I am experienced in local government… I have demonstrated a passion for Wellington as Mayor of Porirua and I don’t come with the battle scars of Wellington City Council. “It’s about bringing a strong voice for Wellington, and someone who can demonstrate leadership - not play political games.” If elected, Mr Leggett said he would like to see communities across Wellington in control of their own “destiny”. Mr Leggett joined incumbent Mayor Celia Wade-Brown and Wellington City Councillors Justin Lester, who is running under a Labour ticket, Nicola Young and Jo Coughlan.
New president for community centre The Churton Park Community Association has elected a new President, Brian Sheppard, following Richard Taylor’s decision not to seek re-election this year. The election took place during the Association’s AGM in March. Brian is new to the Committee and a fairly new resident in Churton Park. “I bring the skills and experience that I developed in my long career as a senior manager with the Department of Conservation, and from my volunteer experience in support of the Cancer Society and the broader health sector,” Brian said.

Distrust in government growing A new study commissioned by Victoria University of Wellington’s Institute for Governance and Policy Studies has found New Zealanders have little trust in government, and trust has decreased over the last three years. The study surveyed 1,000 people across the country on how much they trust key civic groups such as government ministers, police, medical practitioners, churches, charities, small businesses, the media and bloggers. Eight per cent of respondents reported having “complete or lots of trust” in Members of Parliament and the media. Other government groups also rated
poorly, with government ministers trusted by 10 per cent of participants, and local government trusted by 12 per cent. At the other end of the scale, medical practitioners and police rated as the most trusted groups with 56 per cent and 53 per cent. Associate Professor Michael Macaulay said the rankings offer a snapshot of the current political climate, which is typified by low voter turnout and a public largely disengaged with politics. “This survey identifies some important issues, and now we need to ask why people feel the way they do, and what can be done to improve the situation,” he said.

Question: What does Anzac Day mean to you?
Harriet Fowler – Johnsonville
Murray ‘Chook’ Fowler – Johnsonville
Mark Lye – Grenada Village
Guy Beatson – Glenside
Lesley Nicolson – Johnsonville
My brother was killed in the war in Malaya in 1956 so each year on Anzac Day I remember him.
It’s about commemoration, one of my uncles was killed in the Second World War and another one was a prisoner of war.
I was in the Airforce for 20 years – Anzac Day is an important tradition and is a reflection of great sacrifice. It’s good to see all the young people commemorate too.
It is a day to remember people who have made a contribution to our country, including volunteers.
It is a special kind of remembrance – all the community connects and it’s cool to be altogether.
Help us find some Local Heros
Michaelah Billington – Churton Park It is a day to remember fallen soldiers and to go to the Anzac Parade with my family.
Do you know a Local Hero?
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 some-
one 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 firstname.lastname@example.org or on 5871660.

A dedicated man has raised over $100,000 for an excellent cause – making him this month’s local hero. After the devastating Cyclone Pam in Vanuatu during March last year, Newlands man Antony Raine decided to raise funds to help struggling people overseas. “My wife and I had been there a few years back and we fell in love with the place,” Antony said. When Antony first went over to Vanuatu he saw the need for a new building, so he contributed to creating a safe house in preparation for a cyclone. During Cyclone Pam, many of the locals took refuge in the safe house. A few days after the devastating cyclone Antony decided money needed to be raised to build more of these safe houses that also work as churches and
sometimes schools. “I had a goal of raising $10,000 – I ended up raising $107,000.” Antony sent an email out to all of his friends and some of those friends forwarded it on. “I started receiving emails back from Australia and the UK, which just blew me away.” Antony decided the money would go towards building th ree more concrete safe houses in different villages in Vanuatu. The first safe house he funded after the cyclone was established in the village of Etas and had its official opening just before the one year anniversary of Pam. “It will be used as a church, a safe house and a school. “The children currently have to walk for miles to get to school.” Antony said his friend Eric Brandell, who lives in Vanuatu with his family, had been a
huge help. “He was one of the first people to get out to the cut off villages with food and water.” The next building that will go up will be used as a church and safe house. The third building is yet to be decided on. Antony said the reason he loves Vanuatu so much is because of the villagers. “It’s the people that keep us going back.”

RSA member honours remembrance board By Sharnahea Wilson
A World War I commemoration board has gone from a borough council building to Wellington City Council archives, to a local RSA to a man’s garage – all in the hopes of restoration. Karori resident Mike Foster has dedicated much of his time to restoring the wooden honours board which remembers local soldiers and nurses who served during WWI. Mike explained when the Honours Board was created Karori was not yet part of Wellington
City. “It was a borough in its own right – it had its own council and the board was in the council building.” Mike said when the building got knocked down the board was initially dumped. “Someone must have looked at it and thought it was worth salvaging.” The board was then kept in storage at the Karori RSA on Campbell Street where it sat for years, being slowly eaten away by borer. “There were mistakes on the
original board. “A number of the names had disappeared – some were in alphabetical order but not many. And some parts of the board were heavily chewed away.” Mike decided to scratch all the names off the honours board before restoring the board itself and having the names hand painted back on. “I had a tremendous deal of help,” he said. The board was then taken to the Wellington City Archives where the chill of the air conditioning caused it to crack.
It can now be viewed in a printed photo version at the Karori RSA, while the original remains at Mike’s house. Mike has written about each of the people who appear on the board as well as a history of the board itself. He hoped to turn his writings into a book. “The names with a gold star next to them were classified as war deaths, killed in battle or by injury.” Mike said the board needs to be properly boxed up to be protected and he hoped it would hang in the new Karori Hall once it is built.

Leaf leapers jump for joy By Rachel Binning
Old-fashioned fun never loses its appeal. Squeals of joy could be heard in the Botanic Garden on Tuesday, April 19 when children threw themselves at piles of autumn leaves as part of the holiday programme run from the Garden’s Treehouse. Newly appointed Garden Educator Anneke Mace put together and led an autumn theme with tones of childhood fun of the past.
Visitor experience team manager of Wellington Gardens Raydeen Cuffe said Anneke had created a “wonderful set of activities that created inspiring and meaningful memories for kids and their care providers”. The Leafy Leapers theme left smiles on the faces of both children and their parents. “Our school holiday programmes strive to bring to life the wonder and magic in nature we experience,” Raydeen said.

“It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver.” ~ Mahatma Gandhi
It’s the end of the golden weather for another year, but some people still wander around bare-footed – with the potential to pick-up fungal infections of the feet (“athlete’s foot”), or out jogging getting hot and sweaty. If sweat builds-up in the groin area for example, it can lead to another type of fungal infection commonly known as “jock itch”. Skin-related fungal infections occur mainly in warm, moist areas, for example within skinfolds, under the breast, around the groin, in the vagina and between the toes. Initially the skin can look red and rash-like, but can also be scaly, cracked and peeling, and become inflamed and very itchy (athlete’s foot). With jock itch, the skin is itchy with raised red patches and sharp borders. In contrast, ringworm – a fungal infection that can occur after direct contact with an infected animal - usually appears on the arms, legs, face, neck or body-trunk as a flat, red, itchy, ring-shaped sore that is clear at the centre
but with a red scaly boarder. Infected skin can become uncomfortable - especially if hot, and painful. At its worst, the skin can split and secondary bacterial infection can occur. Athlete’s foot is easy to catch from walking around public swimming pools, camp ground facilities and other areas where there are puddles of water through which many people walk in bare feet. The fungi organisms can live in the puddles - thriving in the warm and moist conditions, and on surfaces that infected people have touched and onto which their shed skin has settled. “If you have itchiness and flaky skin between your toes”, caution Self Care pharmacists, “or notice a red scaly spot on your skin, you are likely to have a fungal infection. You need to come and see us so we can advise about the best care and treatment options.” Self Care pharmacists will also advise you about ways to prevent getting fungal infections in the future, or pass-
ing them on to others. Such advice includes: • Keep dry the skin areas prone to infection. This is important especially after sweaty sports and bathing/ showering. Wash sweaty areas and towel-dry well. Maybe use a hair dryer to dry between the toes. • Don’t wear tight clothing for long periods (because it can lead to moisture build-up on the skin), or clothing made from fabrics that stop moisture wicking away from the skin. • Wear ﬂip-ﬂops in public showers and when walking around swimming pools, or wear other suitable footwear that protects your feet from contact with the ground and prevents them picking-up any fungal organisms. • Don’t share clothing, shoes, towels, etc. • Let sweaty shoes dry out thoroughly before re-wearing them. • Change socks and underclothes daily. • Inspect your pets for fungal infections and treat them if

necessary. • Eat in a healthy way (the Weight and Health and Reducing Your Cholesterol fact cards have guidance), keep fit and get plenty of sleep. It means your immune system can do its best to help ward-off fungal infections.” If you do end-up with a skin infection, treatment is with a specific antifungal preparation available from your local Self Care pharmacy. The type of preparation best for you - cream, powder, lotion or spray - will depend on the area being treated. According to Self Care pharmacists, “that is part of the counselling service we provide.” Normally preparations have to be used for two weeks to clear the infection, and for a further week or two after that to prevent a return. Have a look at the Fungal Infections fact card and ask your Self Care pharmacist for further advice. Prepared by Pharmacy Self Care, Pharmaceutical Society of NZ Inc, 16-20 Willis St, Wellington

An outstanding young speaker recently won the Regional Wellington Race Unity Speech Competition before placing in the top six at the National Finals. At just 15 years of age, year 12 Queen Margaret College student Mira Karunanidhi was the youngest speaker ever to win the regional competition. The Wellington competition, held on March 23 at the National Police Headquarters, showcased 15 talented young orators from around the region speaking on the subject ‘Stand Up for Racial Unity, Don’t be a Bystander’. “It was very surreal, the speeches from the other speakers were of a very high standard and I was thrilled to be advancing to the national competition,” Mira said. Following her win, Mira spoke at the National Finals on April 9 at Te Mahurehure Marae in Auckland. She won her semi-final round against six other speakers before placing in the top six of about 200 participants nationwide. Mira said all the speakers conveyed positive messages about racial unity. “They all articulated hope for the future. “I spoke about what race unity means for me, the consequences of being a bystander, how I can

inspire other people to stand up for race unity and what ‘unity in our midst’ would look like.” She may not have won the finals but Mira has learnt the competition is not just about winning. “It takes a lot of courage to be able to get up and speak in front of a room full of people and I think, regardless of whether you won, the experience was the most rewarding aspect.”
Following the Race Unity Competition Mira spoke at the United Nations Secondary School Speech Competition on April 12 and was runner up with only one point between herself and the winner. She is looking forward to putting her oratory skills to the test once more at the Lions Young Speechmaker Contest and the Stockley Cup later in the year.
Dead Bug Live The title of Kate Lepper’s latest exhibition Dead Bug Live opening next month at Toi Pōneke is no metaphor. Developed especially for the Toi Pōneke space Dead Bug Live is a novel viewing system formed around the carcass of a dead bush cricket, kikipounamu. The work references childlike fascination for keepsakes from the wild. Entry to the screening is by koha with proceeds going to the Wellington branch of the Royal Forest and Bird Protection Society. The play will run from May 7-28 at Toi Pōneke Gallery, 61 Abel Smith Street.

Kaka program ends
Staying true to serving others
Zealandia’s kaka banding and nest box monitoring programme has come to an end after nearly 15 years and thousands of hours of volunteer work. Kaka birds were reintroduced to Zealandia in 2002 and have been one of the eco-sanctuary’s success stories. There are 36 nestboxes that will continue to be maintained throughout the sanctuary, but they will no longer be monitored twice a week. The presence of banded birds within the population will continue to generate valuable data but over time the sight of unbanded kaka will become the norm.

A Khandallah paramedic exemplifies what it means to serve by helping people out both locally and overseas. T h i s A n z a c D a y Ja m e s McGregor honoured those who served including his great-grandfather who was a Lancer with the British Army during World War One. “For me, Anzac Day is a time to reflect on what I and others have gone through, and what our service men and women are still going through,” James said. Helping people either in the Wellington Free Ambulance’s green paramedic uniform or the New Zealand Army fatigues was a journey James embarked on at an early age. After joining the New Zealand Army in 1998, James spent the following six years posted in East Timor and Bouganville as part of New Zealand’s peacekeeping missions. While his duties consisted mainly of preventative treatment for the soldiers, he helped a lot of the local inhabitants for injuries and all sorts of ailments - something he likened to his paramedic role here in Wellington. “Treating a patient in unusual places, whether it be the jungles of East Timor or a mountain bike track in Karori, is similar without the worry of a tactical threat.” In 2008 James moved to Khan-

THE DRUNKEN NANNY CHEESE-MAKING, MARTINBOROUGH The Drunken Nanny was born when Amanda and Lindsey Goodman decided to diversify their current sheep and beef farming operation. Seeing a gap in the market (and in their paddocks) for quality, locally produced fresh cheeses, they jumped at the opportunity to turn Amanda’s goat-breeding hobby into a productive business. After a gruelling battle with paperwork to gain
certiﬁcation and an intensive building process setting up their state-of-the-art cheese-making room their production has begun with a Lush Fresh Curd and a Frisky Feta. Next to be released to the market will be a Savvy Washed-Rind and a Cheeky Camembert, all made with 100% free-range goats’ milk.

Dish of the Month New a la carté menu at Whitby’s Restaurant & Bar Dish of the Month: Skin on Groper Whitby’s new a la carté menu débuts on Thursday 28 of April. Located on level 17 of the James Cook Hotel Grand Chancellor, the restaurant features generous views overlooking Lambton Quay, emulating natural light in the day and city glows in the evening. Known for our extensive buffet and quaint high tea, the refresh of the a la carté menu aspires a true taste of the region, alongside international fare. Executive Chef Kiran Padhi relished
Skin on Groper
the opportunity to craft the new menu. Focusing on fresh produce, the main courses range from Aged Beef Sirloin sourced from the Wairarapa, to our May Dish of the Month, Skin on Groper. Cooked pan-fried, the dish is served with edamame & chorizo risotto, creamy bisque, pea tendril and a black tapioca cracker. Authenticity is cultivated from crayﬁsh undertones in the sauce and the complementary ﬂavours of the chorizo and ﬁsh. The Groper is locally sourced from Nino’s and is recommended paired with one of two Marlborough wines; Oyster Bay Sauvignon Blanc or Starborough Pinot Gris. The a la carté menu is available 5.30pm – 10.00pm daily and bookings are recommended. We invite locals to experience our dish of the month and to end the evening at our Piano Bar, where our resident pianist Shaun Johnson performs Monday through Saturday.

ABOUT Thousands attend Dawn Parade
By Rachel Binning
Stories were told, friendships rekindled and military might displayed during Anzac Day 2016 celebrations on Monday, April 25.
Good numbers braved the clear autumnal conditions to mark the day and remember the wars New Zealand has been a part of, at both at Pukeahu National War Memorial Park and at Wellington Cenotaph.
Remarkable 102-year-old Mrs Evelyn Hutchins of Newlands who was an Air Force transport driver in New Zealand during WWII defied age once again to ascend the Wellington Cenotaph stairs to place a wreath.
Geoffrey R. Moss who served on the HMS Achilles and HMNZS Bellona during WWII continued as he has been doing for the past 13 years to accept wreaths on behalf of the Wellington RSA.
Staff at Pukeahu National War Memorial explained this year’s Anzac celebrations centred on the anniversary of Battle of Jutland in World War One with a focus on the war on the western front.

Young sportswoman selected for Wellington hockey team By Sharnahea Wilson
A 17-year-old local student is the youngest sportsperson to be selected for this year’s Under 21 Capital Hockey Team. Year 13 student of Samuel Marsden Collegiate College Julia Gluyas has been playing hockey since she was seven years old, and this year all her hard work has paid off. “I started playing as a goal keeper permanently in year seven,” Julia explained. “It is the best feeling at the end of the day to know you have helped your team win the game.” After spending a weekend trialing for the rep team, Julia was chosen to be part of a squad that would go on to train together for about a month before the final team was selected. “I was happy just to make it that far. I knew either way it would be a great development opportunity.”
Julia was then selected to be one of only two goalies who would take part in this year’s Under 21 Capital Hockey Team. “I was super excited to be chosen.” The dedicated player participates in the under 21 squad, a Victoria University club team and her high school hockey team. Next year she is hoping to head to an American university on a hockey scholarship and said her selection into the team would be a big help in that process. In a week’s time Julia will head down to Dunedin with the Under 21 team to face off against five other teams in a national competition. “There has been a lot of training [ahead of the competition]. It’s a good intensity and some days we go really hard.” The athlete went to Dunedin last year for a different hockey competition and said she is “really excited” to return.

Running for fun on Mother’s Day Wellingtonians will be running and walking for a good cause this Mother’s Day, helping raise funds for the Heart Foundation. The Jennian Homes Mother’s Day Fun Run/ Walk will take place at Wellington’s Waterfront, with women from all around the region preparing to walk and run for charity on May 8. The event, which is part of a nationwide initiative run by Jennian Homes to support the Heart Foundation’s ‘Go Red for Women’ campaign, begins at 9.30am and follows a five kilometre route. As a proud supporter of ‘Go Red for Women’, Jennian Homes will be giving $20,000 to the
charity to support women’s heart health, as a result of the Mother’s Day events. Belinda Barber of Jennian Homes Wellington said the event is very important to the company. “It is a great event and an incredibly fun way to spend Mother’s Day, and we encourage as many women as possible in the Wellington region to register and show support for women’s heart health.” Gerry Devlin, Medical Director for the Heart Foundation said Heart disease was often thought to be a male problem, but it is the number-one killer of women both in New Zealand and globally.
“Kiwi women are four times more likely to die of heart disease than breast cancer, a largely unknown fact. “Since the Heart Foundation began [Jennian Homes] has invested more than $55 million into research and cardiology training, which has a direct impact on saving lives.” To add an extra special touch for 2016, all entrants will receive the Jennian Homes Mother’s Day Fun Run/ Walk t-shirts featuring a design by iconic New Zealand artist Dick Frizzell. To register for the event go to www.jennianmothersday.com Registrations close on May 3.
