Water pooled in Coromandel St in Newtown early on Thursday morning.

People spent much of last Thursday scurrying for cover, when heavy rain hit Wellington. MetService issued a severe weather warning on Thursday morning, warning locals to expect rain as heavy as 10 to 20 millimetres an hour in some places. Surface flooding was reported in parts of Wellington including Lyall Bay and the Basin Reserve. On its website, MetService said after a period of dry weather, there was a higher risk of surface flooding, as drains clogged with autumn leaves were overwhelmed with large

He said in particular, the Mary Potter Hospice was a cause students were always keen to get behind. “The Mary Potter Hospice in particular, is a charity that I wanted to ensure that Rongotai College is fully supporting, as we have collected for them in the past and hope to continue to do so in the future,” he said. Sohadi said he wanted students to really understand what the money they were collecting would go towards. “I really want them to understand what the Mary Potter Hospice is all about and the amazing service they give,” he said. “I want them to realise that they are doing more than just standing around holding collection buckets, I want them to understand that they are helping to make a difference in someone's life, by volunteering to collect.”

About the Mary Potter Hospice: Mary Potter, a Roman Catholic nun, established the Order of the Little Company of Mary in England in 1877. Her life’s work was to give comfort and compassion to the poor and the vulnerable, the elderly, and those who were dying. The Little Company of Mary took their work across the world and in Wellington they established palliative care at Calvary Hospital in Newtown for the terminally ill. The Mary Potter Hospice was formally opened in 1979 to continue this service. These days, the hospice is influenced by the medical philosophy of the modern hospice movement. This started through the work of Dame Cicely Saunders and St Christopher’s Hospice in London in the 1960s. (SOURCE: www.marypotter.org.nz)

Residents association proposed for Berhampore By Nikki Papatsoumas

A residents association is on the cards for Berhampore. A public meeting will be held tonight, at the Centennial Community Centre, to discuss the idea of forming a Berhampore Residents Association, or similar group to focus on issues and projects within the community. Centre coordinator, Merio Marsters, said they were working on getting a group together to address the needs and concerns of the wider Berhampore community and residents. Peter Frater was secretary of the former Berhampore Residents Association before it was disbanded, around the same time as the Newtown Festival was established, 20 years ago. At its peak, there were around 30 members of the association, Peter said. “I have been asking people about reforming the old association or doing something completely different. “As long as we have a city

council and a regional council and a health department and hospital board and all those local bodies, there’s a need for a residents association or organisation for the people to engage with officialdom and make sure ideas are discussed or canvassed, the message gets out and people can express their opinions.” Peter has remained involved in community events including the establishment of the Centennial Community Centre and the Newtown Festival. “There has been a desire expressed many times by a number of people, that they would like to see something that would make Berhampore more than somewhere where you have to slow down to go through the lights. “Now that we have a community centre, as a community we have a focus, we have somewhere to meet… and I have great hopes for things to come back together.” Councillor Paul Eagle encouraged locals to head along to tonight’s meeting and brain-

Move to electric vehicles The Greater Wellington Regional Council added the first fully electric car to its vehicle fleet last week. Chair of the Greater Wellington Regional Council, Chris Laidlaw, said there was increasing interest in electric vehicles across the country. He said a move to electric vehicles was consistent with the council’s role in environmental protection. The new vehicle, a Nissan Leaf, produces 80 per cent less emissions than a petrol car.

storm ideas. “One of the things I would like to see is a process that enables community lead development, like village planning, which has been successful in Porirua City… something like village planning would be perfect for Berhampore.

“This is about being proactive rather than the council telling you what’s good for you.”  A public meeting will take place to discuss the forming of a Berhampore Residents Association from 6pm tonight, at the Centennial Community Centre, at 493 Adelaide Rd.

International Nurses Day

Death in Strathmore Park A wom a n ha s b e en charged following the death of a 37-year-old woman in Strathmore Park late last week. Police said they were called to a house in Strathmore Park about 7.30pm last Friday, after they received reports a female had been injured. When emergency services arrived at the scene, a 37-yearold woman was found dead.

Police said they had since laid charges against a 37-yearold woman in relation to the death. She appeared in the Wellington District Court at the weekend. Meanwhile police conducted a scene examination at the house in Strathmore Park at the weekend. Police reassured the community that the woman’s death appeared to be an iso-

lated incident. They said they were still working to notify the deceased woman’s next of kin. Lisa Matthews from the Strathmore Park Community Centre said her thoughts were with all the families affected. She said the centre, alongside Wellington City Council would be hosting two sessions on Monday. Locals were invited to head

along for a cup of tea or a chat. Lisa said the New Zealand Police and Victim Support would be in attendance if people had questions about general safety or needed to talk about the shock of such an event.  Two sessions will be held at the Strathmore Park Community Centre, 108 Strathmore Ave, on Monday, May 16, at 2pm and 7pm.

Council supports free trade fortnight This year’s Fair Trade Fortnight runs from Friday, May 6 to Sunday, May 22. Wellington City Council is supporting Fair Trade Fortnight with events, information and free samples to show the benefits of supporting Fair Trade in the capital. Wellington has been a Fair Trade city since 2009, and was the first Fair Trade capital city in the southern hemisphere. For more information on key events supported by the council head to www.wellingtonfairtrade. org.nz

Residents can dive deep into local history each week when the Wellington Southern Bays Historical Society opens their archives. The society hosts open days every Friday from 10am to 2pm at the Island Bay Community Centre, allowing the public to come and browse the collections, or ask one of the members to help with a

particular project. The archives are devoted to Houghton, Island and Owhiro Bays, and consist of historical photographs, documents and maps of the area. The members are dedicated to preserving the history of the suburbs for present and future generations and spend their Fridays sifting through, collecting and archiving all kinds of ephemera. They accrue clippings from current newspapers, as well

Bond St refresh Work has begun on repainting the polka dots on Bond St, as part of the autumn refresh campaign for the street. Later in the month, the existing giant planter pots will be replaced with up cycled crates and skips filled with fruit trees and herbs where local residents and businesses can grow edible plants. This inner-city garden will support the Wellington City Council’s vision of creating a more liveable and sustainable city, as well as encourage people to grow and share food.

Graham Campbell (left) came to bone up on his history, with Wellington Southern Bays Historical Society members (from second to left) David Ryrie, committee member, Marion Findlay, co-curator, Cynthia Coomber, secretary, and Gill Ryrie, co-curator

as the accounts of long-time residents, preserving their recollections for posterity. Marion Findlay, co-curator of the collection, believed it was important for the society to focus on the present as well as the past. “We spend time gathering current info on the basis that what happens today is history tomorrow,” Marion explained. Gill Ryrie, a co-curator of the collection and committee member, said he enjoyed learning the stories of Island Bay residents. “It gives people the opportunity to share, that’s what is really brilliant,” Gill said. Much of the material collected was from the twentieth century. As Marion remarked, “The crucial date was 1905. That is when the trams went through.” This connected the isolated outpost to the city. Before the trams, however, Island Bay was known for its racetrack, which was built in 1883. Marion authored an essay

on the course, combining documents and photographs relating to it in one collection before turning them into a 27-page article. Members sometimes conduct their own research, creating collections and articles to make the archive easily navigable and for the yearly magazine the society publishes. The members of the committee are not professional historians, but rather passionate students of Island Bay’s storied past. She said the society was performing an important service for the southern bays, preserving their stories. “We’re making sure the community remembers.”  The society’s next open day is Friday, May 13, and their next quarterly meeting will take place on Monday, May 16 at 7.30pm at Wellington South Baptist Church, where author and retired colonel and surgeon, Wyn Beasley will speak.

Mt Victoria Tunnel turning blue ‘Robin’s egg blue’ will soon swath the Mt Victoria Tunnel walls after a green hue drew complaints from locals. For the past five months, the New Zealand Transport Agency has been trying out new colours for the tunnel’s walls, as part of the second stage of upgrade work on the tunnel. The agency said it was trying to find a colour that was aesthetically pleasing, met safety and light reflection requirements and made it easy for drivers to see within the tunnel. The agency tested out a light green for a trial period, but has now decided to switch to blue. Highways Manager, Wellington

of the agency, Neil Walker, said, “what we found was the light green colour, combined with the new LED lighting, highlighted the rough wall surface of the 84-yearold tunnel and stains from water seepage.” The public was not enthusiastic about the trial colour either, he said. “We’ve also received negative comments from the public about the look of the walls.” Neil said the ‘robin’s egg blue’ colour was tailor-made for the Mt Victoria tunnel. “This light greyish blue-green colour will provide continuity with the plant rooms at either end of the tunnel and is in keeping with the

1930s era of the tunnel,” Neil said. Upgrade work on the tunnel includes LED lighting, strengthening of the pedestrian walkway and exterior portal slopes, improvement of concrete surfacing and carriageway wall panels, a new emergency communications system, upgraded tunnel management systems, control room refurbishments, and replacements and reconditioning of ventilation fans. Painting will begin Sunday, May 8 as part of the standard night time closures – Sunday to Thursday from 9pm to 6am.  There will be a public open night marking the completion of the project on Sunday, June 19.

New playgroup for the community By Nikki Papatsoumas

Excited parents, caregivers and small children gathered for the official opening of a new playgroup in Miramar last Friday. The playgroup has been established by Porse and will run out of the ‘Family Space’ in Miramar every Friday during the school term. The Family Space exists to support and strengthen families in the community and runs groups for locals from Monday to Thursday. Porse was the latest organisation to hold a playgroup at the space

on Park Rd in Miramar. Programme tutor Suzanne Archer said the playgroup was open to the whole community, not just Porse families and educators. She said the purpose of the playgroup was “to build a sense of community” with local parents, caregivers and educators. “Years ago we had one [a playgroup] in Miramar and we did a review that we would like to come back because we have a lot of families and educators in the area.” She said the space was a perfect place to hold a playgroup because it was “well resourced”.

“It has a great outdoor area, it’s really safe, it is double gated and off the street. It is just a great big open space.” Suzanne said she was blown away by how successful the playgroup’s very first session was last week. “It’s been amazing there has been more people show up than we thought.” The Family Space is located at 33 Park Rd, Miramar, behind the Gateway Baptist Church. Porse’s Friday Playgroup runs every Friday during school term, from 9.30am to 11.30am and is for children from zero to five.

More land added to Town Belt

Homestays Required

Did you know?

Wellington’s Town Belt is set to grow by 120 hectares. This comes after the Wellington Town Belt Act 2016 was passed in Parliament last week. The bill will give greater protection to the Town Belt, guard its special status, and give greater say to the public on its future direction. The new addition of green space brings the belt up to 520 hectares, stretching in a horseshoe shape from Mt Victoria, including the Berhampore Golf Course, to Tinakori Hill. Grant Robertson, MP for Wellington Central, sponsored the

bill and introduced it into Parliament. “We now have a piece of legislation that gives the Town Belt the recognition and protection it deserves,” Mr Robertson said. “It is particularly exciting that as a result of this legislation for the first time since 1873 we will be adding land to the Town Belt.” Under the new law, the Wellington City Council will be responsible for the protection, management and enhancement of the Town Belt as a public recreation ground for the people of Wellington.

The original Town Belt was a continuous horseshoeshaped reserve of 625 hectares and was set aside in 1839 under the instruction of the Secretary of the New Zealand Company, the private company that established Wellington. The Town Belt was held by the crown from 1841 and the Wellington City Council became responsible for it in 1873. By this time, approximately one third of the land had been appropriated for other uses.

Scots College is currently looking to increase its pool of homestay families. As our boarding house grows in numbers and the requirements for temporary or short term homestays increase, we require more families to host international students on exeat weekends and school holidays. The current homestay rate is $275 per week or $100 per weekend. If you are interested in hosting a student please contact Leanne Chote chotel@scotscollege.schoool.nz for more information.

Work in progress Lawrence Penney and Dorothy Johnson reunite at the Centennial Community Centre.

Community centre fosters friendship among local elders The residents of Enliven’s Kilmarnock Heights Home are fostering friendships in their local community at Berhampore’s Centennial Community Centre. Berhampore’s Kilmarnock Heights Home, along with two other rest homes in the area, are making a commitment to staying connected by meeting at the community centre once a month for afternoon tea and an activity. The monthly meet-up was inspired by the opening of the Community Centre in March this year, where the local rest homes were invited to visit the Centre for the first time, explains Kilmarnock Heights Home recreation officer Annelize Steyn. “We were invited to visit and learn about the centre over afternoon tea which was lovely because we take every opportunity to support residents to keep involved in their local community and our local community centre will play a big part in that,” says Annelize. “The community centre coordinator asked the residents for suggestions on how the centre can bring the community together, and they suggested barbeques, old time sing alongs, happy hours, indoor bowls and involvement with local children.” She says a special moment of the day was the reunion of two old friends who didn’t realise they lived in the same area.

“Dorothy Johnson and Lawrence Penney met many years ago when they were both involved in a social group in Kilbirnie, but they lost contact and had no idea that they now live just down the street from each other,” Annelize explains. “Dorothy lives at Kilmarnock Heights Home and Lawrence lives at Vincentian Home and they had no idea, so it made for a surprise reunion with a promise of many more visits.” The residents of the three homes agreed to make their afternoon tea at the community centre a monthly event, with their first meeting taking place last Monday. “It means elders living in rest homes in our community can meet and socialise with others at a similar stage in life, foster friendships, and enjoy being out in their local community,” says Annelize. Kilmarnock Heights Home is operated by Enliven, part of the not-for-profit organisation Presbyterian Support Central, and provides rest home and respite care as well as a popular day guest programme.  For more information about Kilmarnock Heights Home, or to discuss visiting the home, located at 20 Morton Street in Berhampore, free phone 0508 36 54 83 (that’s 0508 ENLIVEN) or visit www.enlivencentral. org.nz.

Hataitai Pharmacy is open for business despite major construction taking place on site. Owner Kelvin Lim said earthquake strengthening on the Moxham Ave building, which is 80-years-old, began last year in June. Work began at the front of the store and while this took place the pharmacy operated from the back of the building. However, the pharmacy was now back up and running from the front of the store, Kelvin said, as work began on strengthening the back of the building earlier this week. Due to the constr uction work, wheelchair access to Hataitai Village Surgery, which runs parallel to the pharmacy, has been limited.

Robert McIlroy from the Hataitai Village Surgery said they were happy to make necessary accommodations for those patients in wheelchairs, if they called ahead of their appointments. Kelvin said he understood some members of the public were frustrated, however, contractors were unable to keep the path to the doctors surgery open as they needed it to access the building and do major demolition. He said his customers had been interested in renovations taking place at the pharmacy and thanked all customers for their patience while work was being carried out. Kelvin said work was expected to be finished by July.

ADVERTISING FEATURE

Make your mark... Did you know that St Mark’s Church School is the only co-educational Independent school in Wellington? In fact, St Mark’s has been educating girls and boys in Wellington for nearly a century. St Mark’s is an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School offering the Primary Years Programme (PYP) from Preschool right through to Year

8. Small class sizes means that the progress of children is closely monitored, with each child receiving the individual attention that they deserve. Highly qualified specialist teachers provide expertise in varied subjects including Music, Drama, Spanish, Visual Art and Physical Education to all students from Year 1. St Mark’s enables students to

realise their potential. “It is a school full of warmth, which prepares children successfully for the transition to college,” says Principal, Kent Favel. Based opposite the Basin Reserve, St Mark’s makes the most of the all that Wellington has to offer, with the city becoming an extension to the classroom. Our central location is an added

bonus for parents who are able to drop their children off for the start of the school day at 8:20am and then be at work in the CBD within minutes. St Mark’s also has an on-site after school care and holiday programme. Visit us at our Open Day on Friday 20 May, 10am to 2pm, and see the St Mark’s difference.

Capital’s commitment The annual Relay for Life event in Wellington for the Cancer Society will stay in its long-time home of Frank Kitts Park, following a meeting between the Mayor of Wellington, Celia WadeBrown, council staff and representatives from the Cancer Society. As part of the 2001 Wellington Waterfront Framework, reconfirmed in 2011, one of the remaining significant projects is the revitalisation of Frank Kitts Park. Current plans would double the

Children’s Playground, make a large events-friendly lawn and plantings and build a Chinese Garden. “Having held their popular Relay For Life in Frank Kitts Park for 14 years, the Cancer Society were understandably concerned about the implications of the redevelopment on the timing and location of the Relay,” she said. “Our meeting has helped allay those concerns and I’m delighted with the collaborative and constructive spirit around the table.”

Circa Theatre will celebrate its 40th anniversary with a production of Shakespeare’s tragedy King Lear, directed by award-winning actor, writer and director Michael Hurst. “King Lear is about an 80-year-old man who goes mad because his children are stripping him of everything,” said director Michael Hurst. “It’s about what happens when people get tipped over the edge.” The title role will be played by New Zealand theatre legend Ray Henwood, of Wellington. Ray, 79, a founding member of the Circa Theatre council, appeared in numerous local productions, New Zealand films such as Heavenly Creatures, The End of the Golden Weather and The Lord of the Rings, and the television comedy Gliding On. Michael said it was “very rare” for a 79-year-old to play King Lear and the

production demanded the utmost of its actors. “It’s a very physical part. Ray is vital.” First performed in 1606, he said King Lear remained “incredibly relevant” in 2016 and explored timeless themes - betrayal, passion, sorrow, cruelty, relationships, love and redemption. King Lear has “an existential-type stance”, Michael said. “It talks about there being no rhyme nor reason to the universe except the rhyme or reason humans can make out of it.” “What we realise by seeing this play is how much we need love understanding, human kindness,” he said. Circa Theatre council member Linda Wilson said King Lear was “eagerly anticipated”. “Circa Theatre is abuzz with excitement at the moment as we celebrate our 40th birthday. It’s a wonderful milestone.”  King Lear will be performed at Circa Theatre from May 14 to June 18. Book at www.circa.co.nz or call 801 7992

Hunt through haunted hospital By Nikki Papatsoumas and Kelly Hennessy

Thrill seekers who want to connect with other worldly spirits will have an opportunity to do just that later this month. Wellington psychic medium Kathy McBride has the gift of connection with the other side, bringing messages from loved ones and guides in spirit. On May 28, Kathy will host her ‘Messages from Beyond’ show at the Wellington SPCA, which is based at the old Fever Hospital on Alexandra Rd in Mount Victoria. Following this, those interested can take part in a ghost tour of the grounds and have first-hand experience connecting with some of the spirits who grace the hospital’s corridors. Following her ‘Messages from Beyond’ show, those taking part in the ghost tour of the old Fever Hospital would be split into groups of three or four people. Smaller groups would allow people to have a better experience, Kathy explained. Groups would explore the old Fever Hospital grounds, including hospital wings, hall, offices where the hospital’s caretaker was known to have hanged himself and the basement. Kathy said you could never be sure how the spirits would respond on any given night, but in the past revellers have experienced bangs, the shutting of doors and alarms

being set off. “Most people should experience something, whether it is feeling ‘cold spots’, sounds or noises we can’t explain,” she said. Kathy said her well trained team would always look for a “scientific answers” before assuming noises or movements came from spirits. She said locals should not fear Fever Hospital’s supernatural inhabitants.

“They are very happy for what it is now being used for.” Tickets for Kathy’s show ‘Messages from Beyond’ on May 28 are available on www.eventfinda. co.nz or at the Wellington SPCA reception. Anyone interested in taking part in a Ghost Tour of the old Fever Hospital should bring a torch, camera, comfy shoes and refreshments.

ABOUT FEVER HOSPITAL: The old Fever Hospital is perched imposingly on the edge of Mt Victoria. Its isolation was intentional; the hospital was originally built in the 1918 to treat patients with infectious diseases. Most patients had tuberculosis, though the hospital also took in soldiers returning from World War I with influenza. The hospital became known as the Chest Hospital in 1969, and closed in 1981. The building was listed in the New Zealand Historic Places Trust in 1980. It remained empty until 1987, when Wellington Polytechnic’s School of Music began using it for rehearsal

and performance spaces. It was again empty, with the musicians moving out in 1998, until the SPCA moved into the internally renovated building in December 2013, where they still are today. Many believe its earliest residents never left, spending their evenings haunting the halls. One of the most notorious ghosts is a nurse, Sister Slippers, who, as the name implies, used to make her nightly rounds in a pair of slippers. The musicians and veternarians who’ve occupied the building since have reported feeling cold spots and hearing unexplainable noises.

CBD Grows Wellington’s Central Business District is thriving, with its GDP growth in the past year outperforming that of Auckland and the national economy. Figures from an Infometrics Wellington CBD annual economic profile, commissioned by the Wellington City Council, show the area’s GDP grew by 3.8 per cent for the year to March 2015, compared to a year earlier. This was higher than in Auckland (3.4 per cent) and across the country at 3.6 per cent. Mayor of Wellington Celia Wade-Brown said confidence among the CBD’s businesses, workers and residents was high.

“I cooked dinner for my mother-in-law.”

LETTERS to the editor Not enough interest Dear Ed, Justin Lester, who hopes to be elected Mayor, seriously expects us to believe that surveys show 80 per cent of Wellingtonians support the proposed extension to the airport runway. My experience was that the promoters of this extravagance could barely drum up enough in-

terested citizens to consume the lavish (paid for by the ratepayers) buffet put on at the Brentwood Hotel as part of its 'consultation process'. I'd bet my pension that 80 per cent of Wellingtonians neither know nor care about this vanity project and indeed are unlikely to be able to

afford to fly on any long haul route that might be facilitated by a as yet unknown airline which might, possibly, one day, use the extended runway. Maybe the council should concentrate on improving road access to and from the airport before facilitating perceived new routes in and

out of it. The only thing we can be certain of is, that if the runway is extended, the Airport Company, by virtue of its increased asset valuation, will be able to increase fees to its directors which, of course includes the Mayor. Tony Sutcliffe Strathmore

Dear Ed, Sadly, whenever a new airport runway, a new road or even a big new building is proposed, there are people living nearby who will be negatively affected. I always feel sorry for them - as I do for those living in the vicinity of Wellington Airport's proposed runway. But I do believe that we urgently need a runway extension at the airport and I

feel certain that the right place to put it is to the south. Putting it into Evans Bay would have affected many many more people and would have spoiled a beautiful bay into the bargain. Not that it will improve the appearance or liveability of Moa Point and its environs, I admit, but it’s the right decision for the city. J C Doyle, Oriental Bay

Enjoy it while you can Dear Ed, It's good that N D McCabe (CSN May 8) finds Strathmore Park's public transport excellent, but unfortunately Greater Wellington Regional Council has its bus services in its sights. From 2018 all except a few of the suburb's buses will terminate in Kilbirnie, with passengers having to change to get to the hospital or the CBD (with two changes needed to get to Victoria University); weekday evening

and Sunday services will be halved, to hourly; and the last bus will be two to three hours earlier than now. Your correspondent compares Strathmore Park with Cannons Creek: in public transport terms Strathmore Park will be very much the poor relation, so enjoy the current service while you can.

Your local community centre: Over the next few editions, the Cook Strait News will profile local community centres dotted across the southern and eastern suburbs. This week we chat to Grant Ellen from the Miramar and Maupuia Community Centre. By Kelly Hennessy COOK STRAIT NEWS INTERN

The Miramar and Maupuia Community Centre is perched on a quiet street, surrounded by an ample backyard with walls covered in colourful murals. Though it is a bit “off the beaten track,” the centre acts as a community hub, connecting various local groups and residents, said centre coordinator Grant Ellen. “There’s always people coming and going, and there is definitely a good community around here, even though it is not in the centre of town.” Grant sees the centre as a space for the community to come together. “We are providing a facility, mainly for children and seniors, giving people a space to meet and connect.” Local groups keep the centre busy, booking the hall for everything from yoga to Sunday school. “Lots of groups use it, ethnically diverse groups. There is an after-school program every day, and different dance groups, church groups.” Around the corner, a community garden sits nestled against the side of the centre, filled with lettuce and cherry tomatoes.

The garden has been a community effort, with local volunteers working the plots, and Common Sense Organics and the Miramar Heights Community Gardens providing seeds and help. “We’re still getting it off the ground, but we’ve been able to grab a few things, and were able to put some tomatoes in our kai baskets.” On Monday and Wednesday mornings the hall is a distribution centre for kai baskets, a programme run by Kaibosh that provides food to those in need. The hall will soon have even more uses, as the centre is in the process

of updating the sound and audio/ visual equipment, and is working on installing a computer hub. In the meantime, locals can drop in for a tai chi class or a game of cards. “There are always good people here. Anyone is welcome.”  The Miramar and Maupuia Community Centre is located at 27 Chelsea St in Miramar and is open Monday to Friday from 10am to 3pm. For more information on classes or activities head to the ‘Miramar and Maupuia Community Centre’ Facebook page or call Grant on 388 1944.

Collecting Guam Heritage Te Papa is working with Humanities Guahan to collect objects from Guam, in the western Pacific, which will become part of the Te Papa’s Pacific cultures collection. The co-collecting project will focus specifically on the culture of Guam’s indigenous Chamorros people, including works by master carvers, weavers, and blacksmiths. Te Papa Pacific curators Sean Mallon and Nina Tonga will travel to Guam in May to work with Humanities Guahan executive director Kimberlee Kihleng, coordinator for marketing and programs, Monaeka Flores and selected artists.

Kumon: building confidence from day one

PORSE IN-HOME CHILDCARE –

WIRING UP FOR LIFE

How a baby’s brain is wired up in the first three years of life, is critical for helping them on a positive journey to build lifetime success and a lifetime of loving relationships. PORSE General Manager, Kerry Henderson says science has shown that the first three years is when a child’s brain is at its most critical stage of influence and development. “Life issues start and arise from how carefully we are wired up for life from the moment we are born. As adults we play a vital role in helping babies’ and children’s brains to grow during this time. “More parents are choosing in-home childcare because they value the one-on-one care children receive. They form secure attachment relationships with their educators in a settled home environment where natural play and learning can occur,” Ms Henderson said. PORSE in-home educators are supported with free nationally accredited training and certification programmes designed to help adults understand more about secure attachment relationships during the critical years of early brain development. PORSE Consultant, Andrea Tindle says their local PORSE office can tailor affordable childcare to suit families’ budgets and lifestyles with the ability to utilise subsidies. PORSE also organises a variety of activities for children and their educators which promote friendship and fun, role modeling, observation, reflection of practices, confidence and sharing of information, resources and knowledge. “Strong relationships are developed between our educators, children and parents. Together we are helping lay the foundations for positive lifetime pathways and emotional self- regulation – as children are wiring up for life,” Andrea said. PORSE childcare providers and parents have access to free training programmes to learn more about early brain development and secure attachment relationships. Key facts: PORSE is the country’s leading provider of in-home childcare and educator training PORSE stands for Play, Observe, Relate, Support, Extend PORSE has 42 Area offices nationwide PORSE has more than 7,000 children enrolled PORSE has more than 5,000 educators and students nationwide PORSE is a registered and approved NZQA accredited provider of unit standards and courses to secondary school and tertiary students of all ages.

With over 4.3 million enrolments around the world, the Kumon Method of learning is helping children catch up in the classroom and challenge themselves with advanced work. At Kumon, students study at a level that allows them to build confidence from day one, progressing through the programmes based on their ability rather than their age. Students develop discipline, time management skills and essential study habits: a wonderful preparation for the years ahead. Tanu Kapoor, Instructor of the Kumon Kilbirnie and Kumon Ngaio, says, “We all want the best for our children and want them to grow up to be happy, confident and resilient adults. Kumon’s process of learning helps support children in becoming confident, independent self-learners who can ‘have a go’ at anything that comes their way.” For younger students, Kumon’s Pencil Skills Programme is available to children who are starting to use a pencil and have enrolled in either Kumon Maths or English. Using fun and interactive worksheets, the programme helps young children acquire basic pencil control skills and is an exciting introduction to structured learning. With six Kumon Centres located in Wellington, contact your local Kumon Instructor to hear how Kumon can support your child’s learning.

Type 2 Diabetes –

The Silent Disease Current figures shows that more than 200,000 New Zealanders have been diagnosed with diabetes. There are two types of diabetes, type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes, with type 2 diabetes being the more common, about 90% of all the diabetics in New Zealand. It is estimated that 100,000 more people have diabetes but are not diagnosed and do not know that they are diabetic. Diabetes is a condition where there is too much glucose (a form of sugar) in your blood. Insulin, the hormone that your body normally produces to deal with this sugar is unable to do so. The resulting high levels of glucose can lead to long term damage to your body, including heart disease, particularly heart attack and stroke, kidney failure, blindness, nerve damage and damage to your feet. Therefore it is a condition that has a huge impact on your overall health and wellbeing. Symptoms can include feeling tired, feeling thirsty, going to the toilet often, getting infections frequently and in-

fections that take a long time to heal, blurred vision, tingling and numbness in the feet and often feeling hungry. It is possible to have type 2 diabetes without realising that you are diabetic as not everyone has obvious symptoms. Also symptoms can go unnoticed as the disease develops very gradually, it really is the “Silent Disease”, People that are at higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes in New Zealand are those with a family history of diabetes, Maori, Pacific peoples and South Asian populations. Diets with increased amounts of processed food and drink, sedentary lifestyles and increasing rates of overweight and obesity are major contributing factors. However over 50% of type 2 diabetes is preventable or at least can be delayed by a healthy diet, weight loss and physical activity. If you have a family history of type 2 diabetes, are overweight, have high blood pressure and high cholesterol levels, then a general medical check-up is recommended. For Europeans

a blood test is recommended at age 40, but it is younger, at age 30 for Maori, Pacific Peoples and South Asian populations. Earlier detection can lead to better control and management of the condition and an improved outcome. While type 2 diabetes usually affects adults over the age of 40 it is occurring more commonly now at a younger age and can be seen in teenagers and younger children. Diabetes cannot be cured, but serious long term problems are less likely if you manage the condition well, which means better control of blood glucose to within the normal range. There are medicines available that your doctor can prescribe to take orally for type 2 diabetes and in some cases insulin may be needed as well. However “the main focus for managing type 2 diabetes is on a healthy diet, getting plenty of physical exercise and losing weight if your are overweight” say Self Care pharmacists. “A healthy diet is one with fresh fruit, vegetables and whole grain breads and cereals; eat-

ing low-fat dairy products; having little animal fat, fried fatty foods, sweet bakery items and foods high in salt”, recommend Self Care pharmacists. They also advise that around 30 minutes a day of moderate physical activity regularly – brisk walking, climbing the stairs at work – is important for weight management and good diabetes control. The Self Care fact card on Type 2 Diabetes has more information. “Because diabetes is linked with high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and obesity, leading to cardiovascular disease, ask us for other useful fact cards such as Reducing Your Cholesterol, High Blood Pressure and Weight and Health”, suggest Self Care pharmacists. “Our goal is to assist diabetics understand how best to manage their conditions, use their medicines to the best effect, get good blood glucose control and enjoy life.”  Prepared by Pharmacy Self Care, Pharmaceutical Society of New Zealand, PO Box 11640, Wellington.

Registration starts in Frank Kitts Park from 9am with the walk starting at 10am. $20 entry, free for kids under 12.

50 people participating in the ceremony, while parents and supporters looked on. The Sea Scouts blessed two new Sunbursts, named Aurora and Eclipse, for the group to use for sailing lessons and regatta practice. Sailability named and blessed a yellow dinghy, Kowhai. Both Sailability and the Sea Scouts operate out of Evans Bay Yacht and Motor Boat Club. Don Manning did double-duty as both the celebrant of the ceremony and the Club Captain and Trustee of Sailability Wellington. The Sea Scouts and Sailability teaming up, Don said, “is part of the new way clubs are working, with both the Brittania Sea Scouts and us affiliated with the Evans Bay Yacht Club, and working together.” Don believed the partnership was

Three new boats are set to sail after a boat blessing was held by local groups earlier this month. Brittania Sea Scouts blessed two boats and Sailability Wellington blessed one, at Evans Bay Yacht Club, on Sunday, May 1. The blessing of the fleet is a centuries-old tradition, undertaken to ensure the safe passage of all who sail within the boat. Martin Rigby, the Brittania Sea Scouts Group Leader, said, “Every time a new boat is launched we perform a blessing, a kind of religious ceremony, and it is supposed to keep everyone safe. We’re following tradition.” With three new boats to launch, Sailability Wellington and Brittania Sea Scouts teamed up, with

natural. “There is a lot of synchronicity; we don’t just share the love of the sea, but we both sail in Wellington Harbour, are dedicated to teaching and education. There are a number of people who have been members of both organisations.” Sailability Wellington is a notfor-profit dedicated to enriching the lives of those with disabilities through sailing programmes. Brittania Sea Scouts is a volunteer organisation committed to the education and development of youth in the southern Wellington area through sailing and outdoor education. The day would not have been possible without the contributions of the New Zealand Community Trust, the Lion Foundation, and the Eastern Suburbs Sports Trust, Martin Rigby noted.
