Welcoming beginning teachers Continued from page 1 The charter guarantees any beginning teachers a school employs will receive the induction and mentoring support they are entitled to. Schools which sign the charter also commit to never employing new or beginning teachers on a trial or otherwise illegal fixed-term basis. Wainuiomata Intermediate School principal, Pearl Murti, signed the charter last Wednesday. The school currently employs three provisionally certificated teachers, Nicole Rodgers, Matt Gibbons and Karen Van Arsdale. Both teachers acknowledged how hard it was to find employment as beginning teachers.

Wise developments By Emma McAuliffe

A new housing development is on the cards for Wise Street as Hutt City Council moves plans forward to grow the population of Wainuiomata. The work will upgrade a 250 metre section of existing road at the end of Wise Street and could service up to 90 new houses. As part of this work the main sewer in Upper Fitzherbert Road will also be extended and the stormwater system for the local area will be improved. Lower Hutt Mayor, Ray Wallace,

who visited the Wise Street site with other council officials last Friday, said this was something locals to the area had requested. He said the upgrade on Wise Street could eventually lead to the street connecting to Upper Fitzherbert Road or Wellington Road, however, there were no current plans for this. Council said while some residents of Wise Street had expressed disappointment at becoming part of a more urban area, Wise Street was not marked as part of the rural sector. “We have been very upfront with the community,” Mr Wallace said. The extension to Wise Street comes

as part of Hutt City Council’s urban growth strategy which aims to grow population and homes throughout Lower Hutt. “Wainuiomata is now being seen as a very popular place to build brand new homes for families,” Mr Wallace said. Deputy Mayor David Bassett agreed. “It’s very positive. Wainui’s got good facilities for families,” he said. Work on Wise Street is expected to be finished by August.  Do you think Wainuiomata is a good place to develop houses? Let us know at news@wsn.co.nz

New Uniforms for Futures By Emma McAuliffe

The Futures Programme has something to celebrate after being given some new uniforms. The programme is a group of Wainuiomata High School

students who gather every Tuesday and Thursday morning during the school term to practice league, talk about life skills, do school work and have breakfast. The programme has been running for 10 years.

Bill Sharp, the group’s leader, said the uniforms were donated to the programme by Canterbury last month. He said the boys were “good kids” and he was grateful for the support he had from the community.

inbrief news More smokefree areas in Lower Hutt

Art for youth Wainuiomata youth will have the opportunity to learn to water colour thanks to t he generosit y of Petone watercolour artist and owner of Artspace Gallery, Alfred Memelink. Alfred said he was inspired to run the free workshop after meeting with Hutt City Councilor Margaret Willard and hearing about her passion for Wainuiomata, its young people and for art in the community. Alfred said ever since he first experienced the thrill of completing his first watercolour painting he’s wanted to share the pleasure and experience he’s gained from many years of practice with the medium. His Petone gallery features predominantly Wellington and New Zealand artists. “Many paintings depict favourite places around Wellington that visitors recognise and love, including work by a talented Wainui artist, Paul Johansen,” Alfred said. “[Paul] has several superb oil paintings in the gallery featuring his favourite spots

The Policy and Regulatory Committee is recommending Hutt City Council extend its Smokefree Policy to more outdoor public areas in Lower Hutt. The Committee agreed with the officers’ recommendation that a policy approach be used to create more smokefree areas, including parks and sports grounds, train stations, bus shelters, beaches, outdoor dining on pavements, outdoor areas in town centres and outdoor public areas around council buildings and facilities. This recommendation will be considered by Council at a meeting on May 24.

Ms Willard said she was appre ciat ive of bot h t he gallery and Alfred’s willingness to help local young people. “Alfred has a great community spirit and works with organisations and people to advance art in our community and the city and his gallery is an asset for us all to enjoy.”  Co u r s e w i l l r u n f r o m 1pm-3pm on Sunday June 12 at the Alfred Memelink Artspace Gallery, 223 the Esplanade, Petone.

Business ideas boom in school By Emma McAuliffe

High School students had the chance to enter the dragon’s den at a special event held last week. The ‘Dragon’s Den’ is held as part of the Lion Foundation Young Enterprise Scheme as an opportunity for students to present their business ideas to a panel of judges. Wainuiomata High School had 12 teams of year 12 and

13 students enter the ‘Dragon’s Den’ last Wednesday. The teams had five minutes to pitch their business ideas to the judges of the panel. Business ventures ranged from beeswax hair product to candles to everything in between. Teacher, Simon Croft, said it was the first time the school had been involved with Young Enterprise to this scale. “We’ve got some of our

top students here wanting to do this. Some of [the ideas] were brilliant. They’re all really cool kids,” he said. Member of the Candle Club, Pearl Philavong, said her group made the candles and scents themselves. “We just hope that the judges see that our company’s as good as we know it is,” she said. Following this round, eight of the 12 teams will be chosen for a regional heat.

The teams celebrate the end of the day with the judges.

Chalk a success By Emma McAuliffe

Community members had the opportunity to bring their wildest dreams to life last Sunday at Wainuiomata’s first chalk competition. Hosts Campbell Barry and Josh Briggs told the Wainuiomata News earlier in the week the Chalk Wainuiomata competition was held to utilise areas throughout Wainuiomata and to bring neighbours together. Over 60 people took part in the afternoon competition at the main location of Petrie Street and there were approximately 15

other locations involved across the valley. Creations on the day included a circus, dragons, butterflies, a maze and a spider web. Hutt City Councillor, Campbell Barry, said the afternoon was “fantastic”. “The most amazing part was seeing kids, teenagers and adults interacting together,” he said. He said he was grateful to the judges who had a tough job deciding on the five winners across Wainuiomata as many creations were great. “I was thankful I wasn’t a judge,” he said.

Recommendations for Local Alcohol Policy By Emma McAuliffe

Hutt City Council will be discussing the Local Alcohol Policy at a regular meeting this Tuesday. If accepted by council the policy would set the trading hours of on and off licences around the Hutt Valley. It could also reconsider the amount of liquor outlets in some areas, including Wainuiomata, Stokes Valley and Naenae. Lower Hutt Mayor, Ray Wallace, said the council had two options when it came to

reviewing the Local Alcohol Policy, first consulted in 2013. He said the first option would be to “totally reject it” and the second would be to accept the policy and put it into place within three months. He said the first option would be inadvisable as it would “start the whole process again”. Mr Wallace said the other recommendation would be to “instruct officers to re-consult the community”. He said it was important to have further discussions with community as times

Students learn critical skills By Emma McAuliffe

Students from across the Hutt Valley had the chance to show off their civil defence skills at the final of a three part challenge held last Monday at the old Wainuiomata College. Ten secondary schools from the Hutt Valley took part in the Secondary Schools Response Programme hosted by the Devereax- Blume emergency management training and Wellington Region Emergency Management. The programme has been running for 41 years and aims to teach young people skills in civil defence for emergency management. It has been held at Wainuiomata College on Moohan Street

for thirteen years as the former school had rubble, hills and other hazards students could learn to operate rescue movements around. Last Monday was the third day in the programme when the students were assessed on the skills they had learned. Programme coordinator Cindy Mellor said many students who had taken part in the challenge had gone on to assist in civil defence areas. “[They] are taught leadership skills. They become leaders amongst their peers and they have fun while they do it,” she said. One student in attendance at the course was involved in the volunteer fire brigade, she said. Harrison Nicol, a previous

who received the shot on Wednesday said it was “all good”. “It was pretty easy. Not too bad,” said staff member Menine. This was the first time the Warehouse had their shots as a staff group. Crissiemarie said she thought other local businesses around the valley could benefit from the same. Francess said they gave flu shots between March and July to people between 35 months and 65-years-old. “Some people don’t know they’re eligible,” she said.  For more information about immunisations head to www. fightflu.co.nz Keep an eye out for The Warehouse Wainuiomata will be hosting a Healthy expo in the Wainuiomata Shopping Centre from July 11 until July 15 with free events to keep the community happy and healthy.

Upper Hut College student took part in the challenge several times whilst at High School and returned as a trainer this year. He said he had wanted to become a teacher anyway and this way he could help people learn specific skills. “I’m teaching the next generation of rescuers,” he said. Janice Laurenson from Devereaux-Blume said as well as gaining NCEA credits, students had the opportunity to win a prize. The Challenge Shield is awarded to the team with the best technical skills and the Spirit Cup for the best team spirit, she said. She said the prizes would be awarded at the official prize giving in June.

People are really concerned about the amount of off-licences,” he said.

Tennis triumphs By Emma McAuliffe

Wainuiomata junior tennis ended their season at the beginning of the month with a prize giving celebrating their successful summer. Wainuiomata junior convener, Julie Day, said the club had a great season with approximately 100 junior members playing on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. “We had another awesome season of junior tennis with awesome coaching,”

she said. There were 56 awards given at the prize giving, with 21 of those being cups. Notable mentions of the night included club member, Elesha Smith, who took out seven categories and Katie Spicer, who was awarded most valuable club member. Junior tennis starts back up in term four. There will be an open day in September for juniors and families to register interest and have a go.

As the New Zealand Super Rugby franchises continue to smash all before them, here are some burning topics around the first All Blacks squad of the year for the June series against Wales next month. Chiefs fullback Damian McKenzie has to be in the mix. He's been the breakout star of the competition so far but what role will he play in the three test series against Wales next month? For me, he starts on the bench though with Nehe Milner-Skudder injured I think the chance of McKenzie starting at fullback and Ben Smith shifting to the right wing is likely. Despite the defection of midfield duo Ma'a Nonu and Conrad Smith, New Zealand still has plenty of options but which one suits? Understudy centre Malakai Fekitoa deserves the start in the 13 jersey but do you go with the Crusaders' Ryan Crotty or the impressive Charlie Ngatai? I believe All Blacks coach Steve Hansen

will go with who he knows initially in Crotty but Ngatai deserves game time on his current form. With Milner-Skudder out, it resembles a wingers spot up for grabs. Front runner is Waisake Naholo who returned for the Highlanders after an injury and scored two tries against the Chiefs. Others in the mix include his teammate Patrick Osbourne and the Chiefs' James Lowe. The loose forward mix will be interesting especially the back up No 7 to Sam Cane. The Crusaders' Matt Todd would be a fine choice and Jordan Taufua has been great in the six jersey alongside Todd and All Blacks captain Kieran Read. Traditionally there haven't been many bolters in recent seasons and even though this is the first squad since the World Cup, with a British Lions tour to New Zealand next year, I'd expect Hansen and Co to stick with those they know for a little longer yet.

Team tournaments coming up Sport Wainuiomata Inc will be hosting three family tournaments over the next few months. The group is after social teams who want to have fun in a mixed grade. The first tournament is indoor volleyball and will be hosted on Monday June 6 on Queen’s Birthday. This will be followed by a basketball tournament on Saturday, September 17 and a touch tournament on Saturday,

October 22. All events will be held at the Wainuiomata High School auditorium. A maximum of eight teams will be allowed in to each event with entries closing a week before the event takes place.  To register your team or for more information email sportwainuiomatainc@gmail.com

Race to the finish Wainuiomata Harriers had their annual Novice and Presidents' Trophy races last Saturday. The club started at their clubrooms at Richard Prouse Park then headed through bush tracks, up the river bank and back to the club rooms via Moores Valley Road Hill. The race was a handicap race, which means runners and walkers start at different times, based on their current fitness and racing levels. The Presidents' Trophy is won by the first

person home in the senior event and the Novice Trophy is taken by the first person across the line who has never won a trophy in the Club. This year Don McGowan took out the senior race just ahead of Faye Brown, who he had to chase over the 7.5km course. Brendan McCauley took out the walking section more than two minutes ahead of his nearest rival, Robbie Hannan.  Full results are available on the Wainuiomata Harriers website or Facebook page.

The Wainuiomata hockey club had a great weekend with four convincing wins. The Premier 3 team travelled to Kapiti to play their last game in the grading round. From the beginning of the game Wainuiomata dominated possession and were up by three goals very quickly. The 5-1 win moves the team to the promotion game this Sunday. The goal scorers were Jo Martin, Kirsten O'Donnell, Paris Coleman and Mele Kupa. The Reserve 3 team celebrated

with their first win on Sunday with a commanding 4-0 win over Kapiti. The goal scorers were Chase Foster, Siobhan Fa'alogo and Sharron Handscomb. The Wainuiomata High School team had a huge win on Friday night beating Wellington Girls 12-0. The junior year 7 to 8 team have started their season and came away with a 12-0 win against Queen Margaret College. The player of the day was Pacey Johnson who was strong on both attack and defence.
