Red ribbon cutting declares playground open By Sharnahea Wilson

Telephone (04) 587 1660

Rain didn’t deter students and teachers from celebrating the official opening of the brand new Bellevue School playground last week. After their old playground had to be pulled down due to health and safety reasons, the school community in Newlands banded together to fundraise for a new one. The old playground was pulled down last November to make way for the new two-part playground, with the main part in the front of the school and new swings and a seesaw around the back of the hall. “There was a very hard working group of parents that fundraised for the playground,” Principal Karen Hardie said. “A huge amount of the money made was raised locally.” The school had also received generous grants to help make the playground happen.

Parents, teachers, students and other members of the community gathered last Friday for the cutting of the red ribbon by the oldest and youngest students on the new facility after it was blessed by local Kaumatua Joe McLeod. After year six students Greg Parkinson and Allana Caldwell, along with their year one buddies Lucas Merdler and Manav Kapadia cut the ribbon, the playground was officially declared open. Karen said the children went through a grieving process for their old playground but they were very excited for the opening of their new one. “The building of the new playground happened so quickly which was great,” Karen said. In the planning stages of the new jungle gym, teachers and students had the chance to say what they wanted it to look like. “It was nice seeing the kids pointing to parts of the playground and saying ‘that’s what I asked for’,” Karen said.

Continued from page 1 “It’s about practicing over and over again, and connecting with the characters, to get it right,” Cole said. West Side Story is a modern day musical inspired by Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet that follows the love story of characters Tony and Maria. Natasha said her character Maria has to hit some incredibly high notes but she said she has been improving throughout the rehearsals. Sarah McBride who will play the role of Consuelo agreed that the songs were a big challenge. “It is difficult to perfect but it is also so satisfying when you get it right.” Onslow College has become known for its productions directed by Ms Delahunty with the help of musical director Justin Pearce. “We try to pull of the big ones,” Ms Delahunty explained. She said the pair had tackled many classics including Sweeny Todd, Les Miserables and A MidSummer Night’s Dream.

“Westside story is such a celebrated play – it is one of the big ones that everyone recognises – but the dancing will be played down to focus on the singing and acting,” Ms Delahunty said. James Mills Workman, who will play the character Diesel, will be singing and acting for the first time in front of a live audience. “Justin had been on my back to sing.” He said when there wasn’t a spot in the orchestra for him, because there were no musical pieces that featured the viola, he decided to audition as an actor. Along as singing and acting, the multi-talented students Sarah and Huia will also put their efforts into making costumes for the show. Some of the performers recalled being part of school productions when they were year nines. They said they used to look up to Hollywood receiving her award the Charlotte year 13’s and now – being in their shoes – “feels unreal”.  Tickets for West Side Story are available from Onslow College. The play will run from June 8 to 11 at 7.30pm.

Rest home achieves milestone By Sharnahea Wilson

A popular Karori rest home celebrated a milestone in its mission to become one of New Zealand’s fully registered Eden homes. Huntleigh Home, operated by Presbyterian Support Central’s Enliven aged care arm, achieved five of the 10 principles needed to become a fully accredited Eden Alternative home. To celebrate this achievement, the home threw a party on Friday, May 20 with around 60 people attending, including residents, their family and friends, staff and volunteers. Huntleigh Home manager Suzanne Simpson said the Eden Alternative was a unique elder-directed model of care that followed 10 principles which worked against the plagues of loneliness, helplessness and boredom, which are recognised as major concerns for elders nationwide. “Since we started introducing the Eden Alternative we

have seen a huge difference in the morale of residents. They are more social, more enthusiastic and much more involved with what goes on in their home. “Residents have a say in everything here. That’s why Eden is so different to other models of aged care and we’re very proud that we have an Eden home,” Suzanne said. Enliven general manager Nicola Turner said the home applied for four principles and the auditors were so impressed they gave Huntleigh Home five. “Originally rest homes were pretty grim and over the last 100 years there wasn’t a lot of change. They were hospitals and weren’t very nice environments, but Enliven has come so far. We have made a home.” Only four homes in New Zealand have been awarded all 10 Eden Alternative principles and Enliven operates three of these homes - Cashmere Home in Johnsonville and Levin Home for War Veterans

Newlands clean-up Collectors are needed for a clean-up of Newlands streets and reserves, on Saturday, May 28. A community cleanup will be hosted by Peter Gilberd and Deputy Mayor Justin Lester. Helpers will assemble outside the Churton Park New World at 11am, and will return at 12.30pm for a barbecue lunch. The Lions, Rotary, scouts, Wellington City Council and residents are supporting the clean-up. Good footwear and working clothes are advised. Enquiries to Peter Gilberd (027-614 1416, peter.

Celebrating diversity By Sharnahea Wilson

Children and teachers dressed up to represent an abundance of different cultures for St Theresa’s ethnicity parade last week. St Teresa’s School in Karori decided to celebrate all the different cultures they have in their community by dressing up as different cultures and parading around the school court. Deputy Principal Katie Fisher said the cultural celebrations were week-long. “We have had activities all week, including different guest speakers coming in and talking to the students about other cultures.” The guest speakers included

an Iraqui parent, a teacher from Liverpool talking to the students about Liverpudlian culture and a South African parent teaching children the traditional gumboot dance. “One of our teachers is Irish and she is going to teach the students how to play the Irish game Hurling.” The children got a history lessons when learning Hurling as it is one of the world’s oldest sports which has been played in Ireland for over 800 years. She said the school had celebrated its different cultures in the past but not to this extent. “The children love dressing up,” Katie said.

The Salvation Army Johnsonville will hold their first ever Craft Fair on June 25. Starting at 9am and running until 3pm, organisers believe it will offer the community the chance to see and buy some of the wonderful crafts made by locals right on their own doorstep. The proceeds from the craft fair will go toward opening two day care centres in Myanmar. Craft Exhibitors so far include skincare, jewellery, cards, knitting, fingernail art, books, clay designs and more.

The Key to low carbon Transforming Wellington’s public transport fleet to electric vehicles is an essential part of reducing Wellington’s carbon emissions and meeting the commitment to be a Low Carbon Capital, Wellington City Councillors said. The Council recently consulted on its draft Low Carbon Capital plan to address climate change in parallel to its Annual Plan 2016-17 consultation. One of the plan’s three pillars was ‘Changing the way we move’, which will make affordable and sustainable transport choices available to Wellington residents.

Welcoming investment Wellington Mayor Celia Wade-Brown welcomed the inclusion of the Capital City in New Zealand Trade and Enterprise’s hotel investment initiative to help expand New Zealand’s hotel capacity. “Wellington is a business and tourism hotspot and the city needs more hotel rooms in the near future, so we fully support the NZTE initiative,” she said. “Wellington business has increasingly taken on an international focus with delegations and business partners among frequent visitors to Wellington.”

Coffee on the Curriculum Karori’s Marsden School Year 11 geography students took a field trip of the coffee variety. Last week they got to see behind the scenes of what goes on at Wellington coffee company Emporio, one of the four original Wellington coffee roasters. The class’ study topic was The Global Café - exploration of the world's coffee trade, from producer to the consumer. The students were toured through the roastery, demonstrating the production process, from roasting to distribution out to Emporio’s café and corporate clients.

The Ngaio and Khandallah communities are excited about the upcoming official opening of the new and improved Onslow Community Church. After spending the last two years intensively renovating the site of the church and the connected kindergarten, the facility will host an official opening on June 11. “We are encouraging all members of the community to come along and have a look at what we have been doing for the last two years,” Church trustee Sym Gardiner said. The new building featured a large hall, a kindergarten, space for children’s church, meeting rooms and more. “The sun streams nicely into the children’s church,” Sym explained. Seven years ago, in the space where the church hall now is, stood two flats. The flats were demolished to make room for a larger church

facility and a bigger play area for the kindergarten. Sym said a lot of the work that had been done on the space was completed with the help of the congregation. “We also had some help from MMM – the Christian Serving Ministry.” This Christian organisation can assist with building, renovating and maintaining properties used in conjunction with Christian activity. He said the church also received a very generous grant which helped immensely with the renovation process. “We are setting up for future generations.” Sym said there were just minor details that needed to be completed before the big opening. “It is a lot more useable now – it’s a fantastic multi-use facility.” The official opening will take place on Saturday, June 11 and everyone is welcome to attend.

Enter Stage Right By Sharnahea Wilson

A talented, local student is taking on a challenging role in a chilling, dystopian drama to be performed at Bats Theatre. Queen Margaret College student Ilena Shadbolt will take to the stage this month as Joan – the central character in Caryl Churchill’s play Far Away. Directed by Tabitha Arthur, the play will be performed as part of its double season of Carol Churchill, one of the most critically acclaimed English playwrights. Far Away is a dystopian fairytale exploring terror, corruption and declining mental health, and the impact these have on individuals and communities. Year 11 student Ilena was looking forward to opening night, especially because the appearance will be her second on stage. Her stage debut was in 2014 when she starred in Annie the Musical performed


at the St James Theatre, Wellington and the Civic Theatre, Auckland. “Far Away is a very different play to Annie and also does not involve any singing which makes it quite different from musical theatre,” Ilena said. A fan of both theatre and film, Ilena acted in a short film Sine Condicion Amoris last year and was working on a feature film The Shadow Master based on original play Dear Brutus by J M Barrie who wrote Peter Pan. “I enjoy acting because it gives me a chance to attempt to completely put myself into another person’s character, thoughts and feelings and it gives me a rush to do so.” Far Away will be performed from Thursday, 19 May to Saturday, 4 June.  For More Information, visit the following website: https://nz.patronbase. com/_BATS/Productions/AWAY/Performances

A Wellington based rising star hit the small screen last month after landing a role on the New Zealand television show Shortland Street. Queen Margaret College student Madeleine Knowles received a special belated Christmas present when she found out she had landed an acting role on the popular drama series. “I was lost for words. Mum and I were jumping up and down in the living room,” Madeleine said. Although she had previously appeared in ads and small television roles, Madeleine was ecstatic to land the role of teenager, Lottie. “Lottie means well but ends up getting herself stuck in some sticky situations and has to face the consequences.” The young actor described her first day on set as a blur. “They set up two or three cameras at once from different angles, filmed the scene and if the first take has no technical glitches, then they wrap the scene. It is that fast.” Madeleine said her time on set had been a great learning experience, particularly in the importance of time management. “It is a lot of work to learn a new script everyday as well as do all of my school work.” On the stage Madeleine Knowles

Johnsonville housing units to be demolished

Students taking steps to protect environment By Jacob Beleski Massey Journalism student

A stretch of Belmont Stream in Newlands will be well looked after thanks to Newlands Intermediate’s ‘Take Action for Water’ project. It was hoped they could restore their part of the stream to pristine condition through planting trees and maintaining the surrounding environment. Student Pieter Lelieveld, 12, said the project was undertaken to protect the stream and the wildlife within it. “We are doing it to improve the environment in our community. It will make the water a better place and protect the animals in the area.” Students, parents and Wellington City Council representatives gathered at Seton Nossiter Park last Thursday to launch the project. This was part of the nationwide ‘Million Metres Streams’ movement in which people took over part of a

stream and looked to restore it to peak condition, improving water quality and the health of the plants and creatures living in it. Newlands will be responsible for a 120-metre stretch of the stream, and will be planting trees on both banks. Pieter was joined by fellow students Georgia Lincoln, 12, Tania Guttenbiel, 12, Ohariu MP Peter Dunne and council park ranger Matt Robertson to plant the first tree on the river bank. Other dignitaries at the event included Deputy Mayor Justin Lester and Peter Gilberd. Mr Lester said the project would help restore flora and fauna, and applauded Newlands Intermediate for leading by example. They were already seeing birds returning in great numbers. Mr Dunne was equally full of praise for the school and their involvement in such an important task. “Every big journey begins with a positive step forward. That’s what [they] are doing with this project.”

Four-year-old rescues kittens A four-year-old Johnsonville girl found two sick kittens which had been abandoned in the Johnsonville playground on Saturday afternoon. The small ginger kittens were given over to the SPCA Wellington who appealed to the public to help identify the person who dumped them. Anyone who has any information can call the SPCA on 0800 INSPECTOR.

Housing New Zealand is set to demolish its units on the corner of Frankmoore Avenue and Phillip Street in Johnsonville soon. Ohariu MP Peter Dunne said he has been advised by Housing New Zealand that it planned to demolish the units after they were damaged three years ago. “The complex was damaged in the 2013 earthquakes and Housing New Zealand says that the costs of making the building safer and more weather tight would be significant. “Housing New Zealand says the demolition will occur shortly, and it is currently considering what to do with the land, including whether to redevelop it,” Mr Dunne said. Mr Dunne said while he understood

the reasons for the demolition decision, he was unhappy former residents and neighbours had to wait so long for a decision to be finalised. “These earthquakes occurred three years ago, and residents were moved out quickly afterwards. “It is therefore a little hard to understand why it has taken so long to decide the fate of the complex,” he said. Mr Dunne hoped Housing New Zealand would redevelop the site for public housing as there was still a significant need in the Johnsonville area.  Anyone wanting more information on Housing New Zealand’s plans can contact the regional Stakeholder Relationship Manager of Housing New Zealand on (04) 439 3078.

readers have their say... Find out the WORD on the Street. We asked students of Bellevue School what their favourite books were...

Nicola Brown, Bellevue School

Ajay Gounder, Bellevue School

Fancy Nancy is my favorite because she always dresses up fancy.

I like ones with dinosaurs because they were real and you can find fossils.

Nathan Blumhardt, Bellevue School History books are my favourite – you can learn about different countries. I like the Viking books and the World War I and II books.

LETTERS to the editor Newlands parking a disaster Dear Ed, Further to your Graeme Sawyer article, I would like to share my thoughts with you as this is part of an issue which concerns me greatly. I feel the council have a very "shrug it off" attitude to parking and roading infrastructure in general. This was certainly the feeling we were left with after meeting with a council representative over the proposed Newlands medium density housing. Even as it is, Newlands Road is a disaster at peak time, with cars parked on both sides of the road, buses and

an ever increasing traffic flow. As for allowing breeches of the rules in central Johnsonville because the residents will not need cars: Of course they will have cars, which will need parking. There are other issues besides cycle ways. It appears Justin Lester realises something needs to be done about the parking problem, in fact the housing developments in general, for which I commend him. Yours faithfully, Mary Gray, Newlands Abridged

Barking up the wrong tree Dear Ed, Peter Graham’s letter (11 May) highlighting the problems with car parking in Wellington is barking up the wrong tree. There is certainly a car parking issue but the answer is more likely to be a decent park and ride facility, probably a multi-storey car park adjacent to the railway station. The roads around the station are clogged with cars parked all day while their drivers work in town. Focusing on the proposal to build a new library in Johnsonville isn’t

going to fix parking problems. And I strongly disagree with his assertion that Johnsonville has a “perfectly good” library. Despite the great staff making the best of it for library users, Johnsonville has a cramped, dingy, uninviting library. Public libraries are a cornerstone of a community’s education and recreational life and our community deserves better than it’s currently got. Brenda Pilott, Johnsonville

Gabriella Joffe-Devoy, Bellevue School

Maxine Avery, Bellevue School

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is my favourite because it has the most adventures in it.

I like The Great Escape because it’s a sad but also funny story about two dogs that escape to find their owners.

EYE ON CRIME In Johnsonville a flat under construction in Phillip Street was targeted by thieves who dismantled temporary fencing around the site and stole three large aluminium joinery windows which were awaiting installation. An attempt was made to break into a flat in Macaulay Street. The tenant found jemmy marks around the front door and the lock loose. Although damaged, the door held firm and no entry was gained. A blue Subaru Impreza station wagon parked locked during the day at the corner of Bould Street and Broderick Road was entered but there was no sign of forced entry. A radar detector and charging cord was stolen and wires to the stereo system and speakers had been pulled out. A red Suzuki Swift

hatchback parked overnight in private parking outside a flat in Broderick Road was found the next morning jacked up with the left rear wheel missing. The letterbox of a house in Burgess Road was damaged when an offender pulled it out of the ground and removed the number from it. In Newlands the garage of a house in Spenmoor Street was entered through an unlocked door and a messy search made of the contents. It does not appear that anything was stolen, possibly the burglars were disturbed and left the scene. In Ngaio a trailer was stolen from the front garden of a house in Collingwood Street. It had been chained to a retaining wall and bolt cutters were used to cut it free.


DOGS: Best friends Fergus and Frodo LEFT: Community hero Willie Watson.

Not your typical hero By Sharnahea Wilson

Preparing ƒor a career with the NZ Police?

Brayden Rutene, Bellevue School I like Goosebumps books because they’re about kids finding out weird things and they’re adventurous and a bit scary.

This month’s Community Hero Award goes to a Newlands local who helps out an elderly Johnsonville woman out of the goodness of his own heart. About five years ago Willie Watson met Grace Campbell and has been walking her dog with his own every week since. Grace had a home helper who was friends with Willie’s wife Lisa Johns. The helper and Lisa would walk the two dogs each week. “Somewhere along the way I meet Grace and her dog and I now walk the dogs every Saturday and some Sundays. “I give her a call each week to let her know I’m coming. After I have taken the dogs for a walk I go back to Grace’s house and have a chat while she feeds the dogs treats.” Grace is an incredible woman who has fought through many struggles. Willie explained how Grace only has one lung due to suffering from pneumonia as a child.

“She is also asthmatic and her heart is on the wrong side,” Willie explained. He said this means she often ends up in hospital. “We look after her dog while she’s in hospital – for however long it takes.” “Our dogs are now best friends,” Willie said. Willie has helped Grace out in many other ways over the years. He has installed smoke alarms and built her a fence, while Lisa has helped Grace out with cleaning. Grace said she was incredibly grateful for all the help Willie has given her. “He is my hero. I don’t know where I would be without him.” Sponsored by:

ABOUT Story time

By Sharnahea Wilson

Students and teachers strutted into Wadestown School in style on Friday, dressed as their favourite fictional characters to celebrate the end of Book Week. Throughout the week the students took part in an abundance of literary activities including quizzes, guest readings and a book fair. “Book week makes a real difference,” Wadestown Principal Sally Barrett explained. “It sparks children’s enthusiasm for books.”


The books for the fair that took place each day from 3pm to 4pm were provided by the Wellington Children’s Bookshop and each day parents could place orders. The librarian Derek Piper helped the bookshop choose which stories they would display in the school hall. He also had a couple of authors come into the school and talk to the children about how they got their work published. “There is nothing like meeting a published author,” Derek said.

Nikau Corporate Challenge

Call for volunteers to visit VOLUNTEER WITH US Wellington VOLUNTEER WITH US June 2016 intake is elders happening now

Chorus at Kiwi Community Assistance in Tawa

Huntleigh Home resident Chris Whitta runs the home’s Trading Post shop with the help of volunteer Aurore LeGoff.

Wellingtonians are being encouraged to make time for the elders of their neighbourhood. Enliven, part of the not-for-profit organisation Presbyterian Support Central, is looking for volunteers to spend time with residents and help out with activities and events at their homes across Wellington. Recreation officer Gwen Esler, of Huntleigh Home in Karori, explains that Enliven’s philosophy of care has a focus on alleviating loneliness, helplessness and boredom for elders. She says while Enliven homes provide great activity programmes for residents, nothing quite compares to having someone visit to see you.

2016 Nikau Foundation Corporate Challenge



“Having company, friends, fun and feeling like we have a sense of purpose is what adds life to life,” says Gwen. “And, even though residents of our homes have each other’s company, there’s still something very special about having your own visitors. Some of our residents don’t get very many visitors, especially if their families live out-of-town.” Volunteers are needed at Huntleigh Home in Karori, Cashmere Home and Cashmere Heights Home in Johnsonville, Longview Home in Tawa and Kilmarnock Heights Home in Berhampore. Enliven homes are flexible with the roles volunteers can have and what hours they can manage.  If you are interested in enhancing the lives of local elders by becoming an Enliven volunteer, call 0508 TO HELP, or visit www.

Lyne Pringle is the coordinator of the Employee Volunteering programme at Volunteer Wellington The role is generously supported by major funding from the Nikau Foundation. February to June is the Nikau Corporate Challenge period, when a myriad of projects take place including: 9 teams from ANZ blitzing a new trail at the Makara Peak Bike Park and several teams from ACC undertaking a major renovation of the Mary Potter Hospice Offices in just 4 days. Lyne says, ‘I am encouraging groups to take a ‘blitz’ mentality to the 11th year of the Nikau Corporate Challenge. My mother used to say ‘Many hands make light work’ and that is the motto this year.’ The response has been tremendous with 25 community groups benefiting from the work of 500 corporate volunteers deployed to 58 projects. The challenge period culminates in a celebratory evening at KPMG during volunteer week, on June 22nd.

Wednesday May 25, 2016 Wellingtonians are spoilt for choice when it comes to culinary options and this monthly feature will not only let you know where to enjoy your favourite cuisine but also what is new or special to try once you get there!


French Flair at the Museum Hotel

A classic French dish revisited with a twist: Filet de boeuf Néo-Zélandais en pot au feu, petits navets, carottes, poitrine et queue de boeuf braisée, crème de celeri et crouton à la moelle

When you indulge in French food, what’s the one thing you’re guaranteed to get - apart from butter and nostalgia? This winter, Executive Chef Laurent Loudeac recreates a quintessential dish of French cuisine ‘pot-au-feu’ or ‘pot on the fire’, which is a celebrated French beef stew. The Hippopotamus Restaurant and Cocktail Bar kitchen serves an elegant rendition which has New Zealand Angus beef fillet potau-feu style served with a variety of seasonal accompaniments, particularly a bone marrow crouton. Filled with memories of trying to go through the cold Brittany winter months, France has many regional winter dishes but Pot Au Feu is the most celebrated one. Pot-au-feu reminds Laurent of long family get togethers around the table. There is a very social aspect of eating such a dish as it is something you

pass around along with the condiments, which normally consist of mustard, gherkins and some fresh Baguette to soak up the flavoursome broth. Prime Angus beef fillet is poached to rare then seared, served with a duck fat confit potato cylinder, celeriac puree, baby turnips, baby carrots, broad beans and peas. It is made for meat lovers as it also comprises of a braised beef brisket, oxtail and a short rib tortellini and topped with a bone marrow baguette crouton which melts in the mouth. The dish is completed at the table with a broth, made from the concentrated cooking liquid from the braised oxtail then finished off with “monter au beurre”. This complex broth is poured at the table by one of our waiters. This stew brings nostalgia to the palate and the heart, making it a perfect dish for a Wellington winter day.

The Shepherds’ Arms Hotel at 285 Tinakori Road situated in the heart of Thorndon is one of the oldest pubs in Wellington. Formerly “The Speight’s Ale House” it has been recently refurbished and reverted back top its original name founded by Charles Gillespie in 1870. New Executive Chef - Hemi Tahu who has moved up the road from Charlie Bill brining his culinary expertise to provide his own twist of the gastropub experience. With winter upon us our dish of the month: – Cinnamon and star anise braised Lambs Shanks served on your choice of creamy mashed potato or buttered couscous with gravy, cardamom spiced prunes, and finished

off with roasted almonds. Pair this dish with a glass of Mt Difficulty ‘Roaring Meg’ Pinot Noir makes a great winters night! Uncoupling from The Speight’s Ale House brand has enabled us to vary our beer selection - Emerson’s Pilsner, Little Creatures Pale Ale supported by kiwi classics Speight’s Old Dark, Speight’s Distinction and don’t forget Steinlager Classic Super Cold. The wine list is extensive - Mt Difficulty, Wanaka Road and Invivo to name a few. Doors open from 11.30am with meals served all day 7 days a week. A weekend brunch menu is available Saturday and Sunday only.

“It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver.” ~ Mahatma Gandhi

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.

Steve Hanson to visit Johnsonville The Johnsonville Rugby Football Club has scored a coup with Rugby World Cup-winning All Blacks' coach Steve Hansen lined up for a dinner date at the club next month. In what has been dubbed 'An Evening with Steve Hansen', the rugby icon has agreed to be guest of honour at a fundrais-

ing night at the Helston Park clubrooms on Wednesday, June 15, just three days before the All Blacks take on Wales at Westpac Stadium. The evening will be MC'd by another New Zealand rugby legend in commentator Grant Nisbett. Tickets, which cost $100 per head, will

Football results

include a swept-up three-course buffet dinner with beer and wine. Steve will then speak on his experiences as coach of the world rugby champions.  There are a limited number of tickets available to the public; contact Barry Ellis ( or Steve Moffatt (

Rugby results Another big winner for the club at the weekend was the reserve grade Cripples who downed arch-rivals Wests Mixed Veges 48-5 to retain the much soughtafter Sandy Mounsey Memorial Cup which they can now tuck away until next season.

North Wellington Men’s Premier football side carried on their winning way on Saturday with a 3-1 league win at Redwood Park against neighbours Tawa. Expectations were high for the match with both teams coming off first round Chatham Cup wins last week. Going into the match the rivals were level pegging on the league table but with the honours going to North Wellington they have moved into equal third place. This week North Wellington will look to consolidate their prominent league place when they host Brooklyn Northern United who have struggled this season and were drubbed 5-0 by Kapiti Coast United on Saturday. Meanwhile league leaders Waterside Karori maintained their superb league run with a hard fought 2-1 home win in their top of the table clash with Western Suburbs. This was the club’s sixth win from seven league games and this latest win put them four points clear in the race for promotion to the Central League. Following their shock exit in the Chatham Cup to Petone, Waterside Karori will now be firmly focused on winning the Premier League and this week they will face a tough away challenge from third placed Island Bay in what looks like it will be the match of the round.

Squash Comp

Johnsonville Premier One’s team lost out to Wainuiomata at the weekend.

The Johnsonville Rugby Football Club's Colts team continued their winning way when they defeated Old Boys University 30-12 at Alex Moore Park on Friday night. They are unbeaten this season to remain atop the JRD Cup table.


The Johnsonville Under-85s scored a big win, taking Poneke out by 45 points to 14. This took their record to five wins and two losses for the season to date. The club's two premier teams didn't fare so well on Saturday, both suffering big defeats at the hands of Wainuiomata.

The Khandallah Tennis and Squash club are set to host a Wellington competition over the next few days. The local club will play host to The Pelorus Trust Wellington Squash Open from Thursday, May 26 to 29. Local players will be showing off their skills on the Thursday. This will be a great event for the club to host and they are expecting a high quality field throughout the tournament.

Creating connections in local cricket By Sharnahea Wilson

Newlands College cricketers are set to be coached by one of Wellington’s finest for the next three years. The Johnsonville Cricket Club announced they had signed Ivan Tissera who will work as the new director of coaching and coaching coordinator for the Johnsonville Cricket Club and Newlands College cricket. Ivan has had over thirty years of experience as a player, coach and administrator. He is a New Zealand Cricket level three coach and is highly regarded for his technical coaching skills in batting and spin bowling. In addition to having specific responsibility for the Premier and Premier Reserve Men’s teams at the club, Ivan will also assist with coaching the lower grade teams and have an overview of

the women’s games. He will work alongside the existing coaching support team at Newlands College to further develop and attempt to recreate the strong reputation the college had a decade ago. International cricketer and Newlands College old boy Luke Woodcock said the college had not had a Premier team in at least 10 years. “It will be great for the club and the college to have this connection,” Luke said. Ivan will be working at the College twice a week with both the 1st X1 and the year nine and 10 combined teams. It was hoped with Ivan’s presence at the College the talented players who previously wanted to go outside the area for their secondary schooling, out of belief cricket was better supported elsewhere, would think twice

and look to develop their cricket in Newlands. Ivan has been New Zealand Women’s A head Coach, Wellington Blaze co-coach, Wellington A Men’s Assistant Coach, and for the past seven years has been Wellington College 1st X1 Coach and Director of Cricket at the College. He also coached at the Wellington under 17 and under 15 levels. Johnsonville Cricket Club Captain Rick Mudgway said the appointment of Ivan would be a fantastic opportunity for both the club and the college. “This is a huge appointment by the Club as we look to develop the work initiated by our previous coach Michael Parlane. We hope that with Ivan’s excellent reputation in Wellington that existing and new players will benefit from his undoubted expertise,” Rick said.
