Making a splash By Sharnahea Wilson

An innovative school pool that will be heated by solar power is close to making a splash in Newlands. The staff from Rewa Rewa School have banded together with the team from EasySwim to give the school pool a makeover which will make it useful to the community year-round. Rewa Rewa School Principal

Jan Otene said about four years ago the school decided to start fundraising to fix up their old pool. A roof, that covers the pool but can open up in the summer time, recently arrived from Germany but the school is still fundraising to get lighting and electrical work completed and install solar panels.

Getting creative for Catholic Schools Day By Sharnahea Wilson

Telephone (04) 587 1660

Two local schools came together to celebrate National Catholic Schools Day by sharing a Mass and creating murals. Students and teachers from St Teresa’s School in Karori travelled to Cardinal McKeefry School in Wilton where they celebrated the bi-annual event on Monday. The two schools combined to celebrate the event because they both come under the Otari Parish. Father Ron Bennett of the Otari Parish lead the Mass in the morning before the children got to meet each other and play together at morning tea. Cardinal McKeefry Principal Tania Savage said the schools would be making two murals that would be symbolic of the Holy Spirit. “The children will be making white doves, colouring in green for a cross and will create a big flame to go around it. “It is a lovely idea for the

A local teacher has been presented with his prizes on Friday after winning the Warehouse Stationary’s most inspirational teacher award. Wadestown teacher Richard Smith was awarded with the Inspirational Teacher award during a school assembly on Friday. Richard was overwhelmed by the support and appreciation he had received “This is an amazing day,” he said to the assembly. “It is very special to have someone say something like this about you, but nothing I do I do by myself – it’s a team effort,” he said. The teacher was the overall winner, surpassing 5537 other nominations in the fifth year of the inspirational teacher campaign. The nomination written by a parent of one of Richard’s students, Maria Edwards, explained why this teacher is one of the best.

Bringing learning into the 21st Century By Sharnahea Wilson

Students, teachers and honoured guests gathered at Marsden Collegiate College last week to celebrate the official opening of the school’s new innovative learning facility. After five years of students and teachers avoiding construction sites and ducking in and out classrooms in the rain, a new multi-million dollar learning studio, school foyer and iCentre was opened by Prime Minister and honoured guest John Key. The original entrance that was built in 1926 failed an earthquake safety test and had to be pulled down about five years ago. This paved the way for a learning environment for the current students and “generations of girls to come”. Mr Key congratulated the students and teachers on their new education facility. He spoke of his mother as his role model and said how during World War II she lost nearly everything she had – including

family. “The one thing they can never take away from you is your education,” he said. School Principal Jenny Williams said the new building, as well as new technologies, has flipped learning on its head. “This building will provide suitable spaces for collaborative learning. We know the importance of a collaborative learning environment,” she said. “Complementing existing facilities, the Learning Studios and iCentre are a wonderful resource in preparing our young women for work and life in the 21st Century.” Marsden Head Girl Nina R icha rdson t ha n ked t he school’s guests for attending the ceremony before she, along with a year one Marsden student, cut the cake in celebration. The building was designed by Athfield Architects and included work spaces, study nooks and an extensive green vista which would provide a peaceful space for both collaborative and independent work.

Pink Shirt Day On Friday May 20, thousands of New Zealanders including children’s entertainer Suzy Cato will celebrate Pink Shirt Day and speak up and stand together to stop bullying. Over 300 individuals, schools, community groups, universities, businesses and workplaces are set to turn their local areas pink and combat bullying – a record number for the campaign. “Pink Shirt Day is about showing a united front, showing strength and showing support for each other, regardless of age, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, ability, or cultural background,” Suzy said.

Second chance clothing sale The House of Grace will hold a second chances clothing sale this weekend at the Churton Park Community Centre. The event will help raise money for House of Grace and they are still seeking donations of good quality pre-loved women’s and children’s clothes and accessories for sale at the event. Donations will be accepted at the community centre. Head along on Saturday, May 21.

MPs on tertiary tour Students will hear about damp flats and inequality from Members of Parliament who are aiming to make New Zealand better. Green Pa r t y Co -leader Metiria Turei and Green MP Marama Davidson have invited anyone and everyone to go along to Victoria University to discuss rental housing, inequality and how Green Party policies, like housing warrant of fitness,

could make New Zealand better for everyone. “We’d encourage everyone to come along – whether you’re really interested in politics, like us, or if you just want to vent about your cold, mouldy, expensive flat,” Mrs Turei said. “With the cost of housing going up and wages not rising to match, students are facing an uncertain future. Trying to find a decent job after gradu-

ating can be really worrying.” She said there were “smart, sensible, compassionate” policies they could bring in to make the playing field fairer for all citizens. Ms Davidson said she was looking forward to hitting the road with Metiria to hear about what is really going on with students and young people in New Zealand. “We all know it’s getting harder and more expensive

to be a student, with housing costs going up and student financial support not reaching far enough. “This is our chance to hear about your concerns, and let people know how Green Party policies can make life better for everyone,” she said.

The Wellington Cable Car will be closed from 7 June to 31 July for the replacement of the electric drive and control systems and for the refurbishment of the Cable Car carriages.

Fresh new face for Ngaio By Eleanor Wenman MASSEY JOURNALISM STUDENT

Empty shop faces in Ngaio Village that have stood vacant since the end of February now have bright new looks. In the last month, residents have been able to take art classes and shop for baby seats after two new businesses moved into the row of shops along Ottawa Road. Sam’s Art House shop opened last Monday and so far, the art studio has been a success. Some of the classes have been so full that owner Sam Walker had to turn people away. Sam said she used to drive past Ngaio Village practically every day and was pleased when she found a place to rent in it. “I feel it’s got such a vibe,” she said. When she took over the space that used to house the Ngaio Fine Arts gallery, a paint job was high on the list. She was particularly proud of the bright turquoise colour she picked for

her door. “I think a bit of freshness about this place is drawing people in.” Three years ago Sam Walker was working as a counsellor when she decided on a career change. She opened an art studio at her Khandallah home where she worked on her own projects and offered art classes. Demand grew and she needed more space. She said she wanted her shop to be a friendly place people could drop in. “I want people to say ‘oh, I’ll just go down and talk to Sam’,” she said. Sam currently offers classes for pre-schoolers and children and is also starting a series of workshops for adults. She also plans to sell art work from local artists. Just up the road is another recent addition to the Ngaio Village. In an empty space that used to house a Save the Children

branch, Jo Boxhall opened Baby on the Move in late April. The shop sells and hires out baby products like car seats. Jo said many people have told her how nice it is having empty

shop space in the Village filled. “It’s a new face for the village and the shops complement each other. “It’s got a real community feel here,” she said.

Support for hospice street appeal

MPs gear up for Mary Potter Hospice street appeal: (From left) Ohariu MP Peter Dunne, Rongotai MP Annette King, and Wellington Central MP Grant Robertson.

Hundreds of volunteers have signed up to lend a helping hand during this year’s Mary Potter Hospice street collection. Around 700 people will be out collecting on May 20 and 21, including some local Members of Parliament, for the annual appeal. "We are very fortunate that Wellingtonians come out in force to support our street appeal, either as collectors or as donors," Mary Potter Hospice Chief Executive Ria Earp said. The Mary Potter Hospice

provides free care for people with an illness who cannot be cured. Ohariu MP Peter Dunne, Rongotai MP Annette King, and Wellington Central MP Grant Robertson tried the tabards on for size on May 12 at Parliament and practised their collecting skills. They will be supporting the Hospice on collection day. Mary Potter Hospice relies on the Wellington community to keep providing a free service to people in Wellington, Kapiti and Porirua. "It's important that we keep

services absolutely free for patients and their family and help them through this very stressful time in their lives,” Ria said. She said people shouldn’t have to worry about paying for their service at such a difficult time. Ria thanked all the volunteers who would be collecting for Mary Potter Hospice during the street appeal.  Anyone who would like to make a donation can go to: or phone 0800 MARYPOTTER (0800 627 976)

Local Chorus wins at National Comps Capital Harmony Chorus, an acappella group from North Wellington, won the Chorus Audience Choice Award at the Sweet Adelines National Competition held in Wellington in April. The 24-member women’s chorus entered the open (entertainment) category of the Competition. “While it was great to receive the Audience Choice Award for our efforts, we were also thrilled that our overall score went up a grade from the last time we competed which was two years ago,” Chorus Director Joanne Oliver said.

Open Weekend at Zealandia is coming up and the wildlife sanctuary is opening their doors to locals for just a couple of dollars. Both Zealandia and the Wellington Zoo will accept $2 donations for entry during their Open Weekend of May 21 and 22. At Zealandia visitors will be able to explore the interactive exhibition, get up close and personal with New Zealand’s unique native wildlife and learn from experienced guides about the conservation efforts being made to protect flora and fauna. Rata will also be open, and will provide sustainable food and drink for visitors.

Open Weekend is a popular event for Wellingtonians with thousands of people visiting Zealandia and Wellington Zoo last year. The proceeds from the gold coin entry will go towards Zealandia’s ongoing conservation efforts and the local and international field conservation projects supported by the Wellington Zoo Conservation Fund. “Open Weekend is such an important event for our local residents,” Zealandia CEO Paul Atkins said. “Especially for those who might not otherwise have the opportunity to get up close to native New

Zealand wildlife,” he added. 2016 is the second year the event will be running over two days instead of one, to provide more opportunity for families to visit both places. Visitors can plan their Zoo trip around the animal talks which will ensure they get close to more animals like critically endangered Sumatran Tigers, Chimpanzees, Sun Bears, and Red Pandas. This year visitors will also be able to explore Meet the Locals He Tuku Aroha – a New Zealand experience which features rescued Little Blue Penguins, farm animals and wildlife in the bush area.

Pesky predators on their way out By Eleanor Wenman MASSEY JOURNALISM STUDENT

Six weeks is all it took for 170 people to pledge to clear their suburb of predators. Free predator traps were on offer for Khandallah residents and already most of those signed up had a trap baited and set in their backyard. Organiser Gillian Bruce said there were a whole host of reasons why so many people joined the Predator Free Khandallah group. Some simply do not like rats in their backyards. Others value the birdlife in Khandallah Park and want to preserve it. Whatever their reason, Gillian is pleased with the response. “Everyone is taking responsibility for their environment. They’re all doing it themselves,” she said. In the bush of Khandallah Park,

rats, stoats and weasels prey on the eggs and chicks of local tui and kereru. Gillian said Predator Free Khandallah is about stepping up to the challenge of clearing out these predators and getting locals invested in saving the wildlife. She said she has purposely made the programme more social. “That’s the most powerful influence – getting other people talking about it.” The first traps were sent out in early April and word-of-mouth was vital in getting her message out at the beginning of the campaign. Gillian spent time dropping flyers in people’s mailboxes but said many people that come to her hear about it from a friend or family member. As the programme grows, Gillian hoped to set up a trap

line using more intense traps in Wellington’s green belt that surrounds Khandallah, to catch stoats, weasels and the odd hedgehog. When people approached her about joining the initiative, she gave them a free trap as soon as possible. From there, it is easy for people to set the traps at home. A snap trap is baited and put in a rectangular wooden box. Wire mesh covers both ends of the box to protect any curious pets or children from getting snapped. One end has a rat-sized hole cut into it and the mesh at the other end can be pulled up to put in a snap trap. If mice are a problem, a more sensitive trap is used.  To find out more about the Predator Free group email Gillian Bruce

From Dishwasher to Manager The Khandallah Trading Company is proud to welcome Rory Byrne back to the local restaurant in his new position as general manager. Having spent the last seven and a half years travelling, Rory is glad to be back in Khandallah where he was born and bred. During his travels, Rory spent two and a half years in Australia where he met his fiancé who was originally from the Netherlands. The pair then travelled around Europe together working in high end villas and in chalet businesses in the Alps, Austria, Italy and Switzerland. Rory has been involved in the hospitality industry since the age of 16 when he worked as a dishwasher at the restaurant where the Khandallah Trading Company now exists. He said the company is heavily in-

volved in the community. This involvement includes helping fundraise for school fairs, sport team sponsorships and support of local schools and their teachers – including Onslow College and Raroa Intermediate. The restaurant also hosts a variety of charity events. The Khandallah Trading Company will continue to focus on fundraising for local toddler Oscar Cakebread who was diagnosed with spastic diplegia, cerebral palsy. “The month of May is dedicated to fundraising for his treatment, including some great prizes,” Rory said. Rory also said a new head chef had been appointed and will start in June so look out for some exciting new menu options.  To contact KTC phone 4794157 or visit

Question: What are your thoughts on the new Ngaio Village shops?

Kelly Patal, Ngaio

Lois Gilmor, Ngaio

Kevin Pewhairangi, Ngaio

Laura Bishop, Ngaio

Amanda Chan, Ngaio

They’re good for the community – they bring more people into Ngaio Village.

I heard the art shop will run after school programmes which is good, but it would be nice to have a bakery.

They’ve made Ngaio a little hub again so they’re good for the community. It’s quite a buzz on Saturday’s.

I like the florist shop, she has an online thing where you can put together your own bunches of flowers.

They’re good, they bring the community down here to have a look around.

Ann Egginson, Ngaio I will pop in and see the new shops, I hope they do well.

LETTERS to the editor Long-time Johnsonville resident Dear Ed, Like Barrie Green (Independent Herald, 11 May), my parent’s house in Raroa had a party line until 1957, when the number changed. Bruce and Mavis Wilson shared the line with the Osmans and O’Deas in Fraser Avenue. The four-party lines were on the original Johnsonville exchange from 1947 to 1957, a “rotary” exchange made by West-

ern Electric in Antwerp. Only the called number rang when dialled, unlike rural party lines with code ringing. The family house was in Hutchen Street, which is now the section of Haumia Street to Talavera Terrace. I had a 1952 annual rate demand of $8.30 from the Hutt County Council, including a $1.65 hospital rate. The electric “units” to Wellington

Concerns over police hours started from Monday 4 July 1938 after a ceremony on 2 July, though there were steam passenger trains before then when the line was part of the Main Trunk. H. L. Cummings of Ngaio pushed for an electrified multiple-unit service like Melbourne. Yours, John Wilson, Johnsonville Abridged

Dear Ed, Hi Graeme, I believe that your photo on Frankmore Ave (Independent Herald Wednesday 4 May 2016) says it all. Why is our residential parking held to ransom by commuters? The only area of Johnsonville I have a real issue with for parking is Burgess Rd where you are not entitled to park in the limited parking at the vet. I was recently limited to parking in the KFC car park. What we need is to lead by example and place parking areas for commuters at our community

extremities - with 15 minute shuttles to meet up with existing/enhanced public transport. We already know that additional motorway lanes do not achieve better commuter throughput so why would we be naive enough to think that turning Johnsonville central into a giant commuter car park is a good thing. Please - can we not push these commuter car parks out to the extremities of our community? Regards, Colin Rhodes, Johnsonville Abridged.

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.

85 years of reading plays

Young Leaders The young leaders of New Zealand celebrated National Young Leaders Day on May 17 for high schools and May 18 for primary and intermediate schools. “This is National Young Leaders Day’s 16th year, and 110,000 students have attended one of our events. Schools know us and are always very keen to send their young leaders along. It is amazing seeing so many young people buzzing with excitement,” Zane Scarborough, one of the event organisers said. Young leaders of the country congregated at Rauparaha Arena in Palmerston North.

One local play reading group got together for a milestone celebration last week, marking their 85th year as a club. Khandallah Thespians got together for a celebration lunch on Saturday, May 14 to celebrate their 85th year of reading and performing plays. The group celebrated the milestone with a catered two-course dinner and cake, a small gift for everyone and two plays. Many years ago some local women formed the group and met – in their long gowns and white gloves – to read plays together each month. “We have abandoned the long dresses and gloves (except when they are needed for a part in a play) but we still get together for the fun part,” thespians member Barbara Woods said. “We read plays together once a month. We dress up a bit and have a cuppa together, usually in each others’ homes, and occasionally have a shared meal.” The club currently has about 20 members and they primarily perform one-act plays of all genres, including comedy, drama and thrillers. The keen performer said she loves the group because of the

friendship as well as the acting. “We are pretty much all regulars and have got to know each other,” Barbara said. “We do have a few laughs in the process,” she added. Barbara said the group would have a break for the winter months “as it is not much fun

Cross-country series proves popular

PHOTO CREDIT: Bella Photography

By Rachel Binning

The starter gun firing at Karori Park signaled some fast paced cross-country action on Sunday, May 15. About 500 competitors took to the start line in their age groups during the Kids Cross Country Series. Ranging from four to 13 years old competitors grappled with fine but increasingly windy conditions. “It's a great way to introduce kids to the sport from a young age. The little kids love it,” Sport Development Manager from Athletics Wellington Jo Murray said. It is the fourth year the cross-country event has been held and it keeps growing in popularity. The event was gratefully furnished with volunteers too old to compete in the series but still keen to support their chosen sport. The winter series encouraged Wellington children to get outside and run in a relaxed and fun environment. “The Series is perfect for the whole family,” Murray said. There are four events left in the 2016 series in Upper Hutt, Tawa, Petone and Mt Victoria. (1.)

Students enjoy run in the sun By Jacob Beleski MASSEY JOURNALISM STUDENT

Blustery winds did not stop Newlands Intermediate students enjoying their cross-country event on Friday afternoon. Four races were held over a twokilometre course: year seven girls, year seven boys, year eight girls and year eight boys. Principal Angela Lowe said they had their own unique course to keep the students interested. “We have part of our course through the forest to keep it interesting. We find it’s better than having them run around in circles on the field.”

With Newlands Intermediate and Newlands College located adjacent to each other the course was designed to make the most of the varied terrains around the schools. This included a couple of hillclimbs, followed by a trek through the forest and finishing in front of the crowd on the college sports field. Angela said the day would not have been possible without the help of volunteers from Newlands College. “It’s great to have students from the college helping out. It makes the organisation a lot easier.” The volunteer students were situated at intervals along the course, offering words of encouragement for

the young students as they ran past. The event was a great opportunity for competing students to earn points for their syndicates, with some students also given particular goals to strive for by their sports coaches. “It’s great for them to test their resilience and ability to face up to a challenge,” Angela said. Julia Arboleda and Lawrence Reeves won the year-seven events respectively, while Tui-Aroha Fransen and Lucas Maihi took the spoils in the year eight races. All four were looking forward to competing in the inter-intermediate cross-country event later in the year.

Local footballers blitz opponents By Sharnahea Wilson

North Wellington’s football premiers produced a scorching opening quarter to blitz first round Chatham Cup opponents Seatoun at Alex Moore Park on the weekend. With Japanese import Shohei Watanabe in brilliant form along with a brace of goals from Simon Fejos and goals to Jono Rayner, Karl Romijn, and Corey Larsen the onslaught was too much for Capital 2 side Seatoun who trailed 6-0 at half time. North Wellington manager David Rayner said the match was effectively over after an early burst of scoring.

“It was a good expansive game by our guys and we had plenty of pace up front. Scoring those four goals in a 12 minute burst put us well in charge and we were able to use a lot of guys who hadn’t had a lot of game time. “To their credit, Seatoun didn’t give up and they lifted their game in the second half but I was very pleased with our overall performance,” David said. North Wellington will now face Kapiti Coast United in a second round Chatham Cup clash at Raumati on Queen’s Birthday weekend and David is expecting a good battle. “We played them in the league and won 4-2 so we know them well.

Kapiti are always competitive and they’ve been a bit unlucky in some games this season so we are expecting a tough match and we will have to work hard to get the right result.” David said the immediate goal for North Wellington is a local derby clash with premier league rivals Tawa at Redwood Park on Saturday. Both teams are mid table with identical win loss records so the rivalry is expected to be intense. Chatham Cup first round result: North Wellington by Seatoun AFC 7-0. Goals: Shohei Watanabe (2), Simon Fejos (2), Jono Rayner, Karl Romijn, Corey Larsen.

Squash nights at the Khandallah Tennis and Squash Club have commenced. Junior Squash Club Night started back on Friday, May 6. The nights will continue every Friday throughout term two and term three. All are welcome to attend.

Chatham Cup battle The Chatham Cup is underway and on Saturday, May 9 the players from Waterside Karori Football Club faced off against Petone Football Club in a close battle. The local boys were up against a top four central league side, though the first half was relatively even with just one goal being scored by Petone. The second half heated up with an own goal bringing the score up to 1-1. A quick counter attack by the opposition, however, saw Petone back in the lead. Man of the match Levi McFarlane had the oppositions defenders on the back foot and the game went into extra time. Two-all after extra-time meant the teams needed to have a penalty shoot out to finish the match. Petone took out the penalties, finally winning the game.
