Leaderboard for hilltop challenge

inbrief news Free parking extended

By Emma McAuliffe

Residents can now race each other to the top of the hill and mark their best times. A new sign to measure the fastest times of those walking, running and biking up the Wainuiomata Hill was installed on Friday. The challenge is named the “Pukeatua Challenge” and the sign was erected by a working group from the Wainuiomata 2035 Steering Group who were approached for something by those who conquered the hill daily. Making stuff happen champion, Esther Venning, said it was an opportunity to celebrate the activity happening on the Wainuiomata Hill. “[People] thought it would be fun. You’re not only challenging others, you’re also challenging yourself,” she said. The Leaderboard is located on the left side of the hill when entering Wainuiomata. It has places for twenty people coming up the hill from either side to write the time they climbed to the top in.

GREAT TIME: Josh Briggs ma d e it up the hill in 17 minutes and 29 seconds.

Hutt City Council has extended free parking in the CBD. The first hour of parking in time restricted parks will be free until January 15, 2017. The continuation of the trial for a full calendar year provides Council more data to analyse spending in the CBD. To offset some of the lost revenue as a result of the extension, parking prices in other parts of the city will increase from July 1, 2016. The first hour in two-hour HC2 time limited parks will be free however, the cost of the second hour will increase from $1.50 to $2.50.

Parkway Park Residents have only a few days left to make submissions regarding the new playground at Parkway Park. The under 5s section of the park will be getting a revamp later this year. For more information visit the sign posted at the playground or head to www. Submissions close Friday, June 10 at 5pm and can be made via email to submissions@

Correction Esther said the Leaderboard would work in well with the shared pathway currently in construction as activity on the hill would increase. She said the Leaderboard would

be wiped clean every week for the community to keep trying to beat their scores. She said she would encourage anyone to “give it a go”. Residents can get involved fur-

ther by promoting their top times via social media with the hashtag “#pukeatuachallenge”.  Do you run up the Wainuiomata Hill? Let us know at news@

Last week the Wainuiomata News published an article about Gabriel Tupou regarding his appointment to the Hutt City Multicultural Council. The article misquoted him as saying “refugees” in regards to people moving in to the valley. The correct quote wording should be “migrants”.

Local man a chilli champ By Emma McAuliffe

A local man had a spicy weekend after winning a regional chill eating championship. Ben Silvester won the Fire Dragon New Zealand Chilli Eating Champs Heat 8 on May 28. The competition has been running since 2011 to find New Zealand’s most keen chilli eater. Heat 8 was held at Bebemos in Wellington. Because of his win, Ben will

be taking part in the Finals in Auckland in three weeks’ time. Ben said he had always been a fan of spicy food and this led him to giving the competition “a shot” for the first time this year. “I’d always been an advocate for hot food,” he said. He said he had not done too much training in preparation for the tournament as he had a young family who did not like spicy food. Despite not doing any train-


ing, Ben took out thirteen other contestants in the challenge which included eating a chilli con carne, spicy chicken wings, enchiladas and later, actual chilies. To win a bar tab, Ben ate a Carolina Reaper, thought to be the hottest chilli in the world. Ben said he hoped to eat more spicy food in the lead up to final competition at the end of the month. “I’m looking forward to the finals,” Ben said.

Yearbook dreams for students By Emma McAuliffe

Students at Wainuiomata High School are keen for a way to remember their friends after leaving school. Around twenty students from all year levels have banded together to start a Yearbook committee to get the funds necessary to bring the yearbook back to the college. The last time the school had a physical yearbook was in 2009. Teachers have been trying to get another yearbook off the ground for two years however have been unsuccessful. This fundraising initiative is student led, facilitated by teachers Hailey Thomson and Ellen Eales. Hailey and Ellen said the school and Principal, Martin Isberg, had been supportive of the move. The students said having a yearbook would be a good chance to show pride for their school.

Rachel Hema and Nimish Gounder said it would be a way to remember their time at the school. “It will be a way to remember things we might not remember in a few years’ time,” Nimish said. The students said they would like to highlight competitions, such as Stage Challenge, and sporting achievements. They said they would also like to celebrate their Manaaki time, a new addition to the school’s curriculum this year. The students will begin their fundraising to make their yearbook dreams a reality with a balloon throwing competition later in the year. They are also looking to the community for support in advertising or sponsorship.  To support Wainuiomata High School in their endeavor to gain a yearbook contact Ellen at nz

Journalism chat to students By Emma McAuliffe

The Wainuiomata News went back to school last week to talk to students about journalism. Wainuiomata Intermediate invited Wainuiomata News journalist, Emma McAuliffe, and Cook Strait News Journalist, Nikki Papatsoumas, to the school last Friday as part of their learning about different careers. Teacher, Justin Enoka said the talk was the third session involving the students learning about journalism. He said the students first learnt what journalists did and then spent time role playing and acting as journalists. The fifty Year Seven and Eight

students were involved in the talk and asked a lot of questions. Key interest areas for the students were whether either of the newspapers had interviewed any famous people and who Emma and Nikki wanted to interview the most were. Nikki said the experience was great. “It was a great opportunity to be asked to head along to Wainuiomata Intermediate and chat to the children about what we do as journalists. “Hopefully the chat inspires some of the kids to work towards a career in journalism in the future,” she said. Other guest speakers on the day were Bennett Pomana and Piko Moeahu from Nui FM and Jim Collins from WelTec Hospitality School.

Best and brightest named as Technology Valley Award finalists

Annual spending set Hutt City Council made a decision regarding their annual budget at a meeting held last week. Their key projects and initiatives were decided at the Community Plan Committee meeting on Thursday. This followed consultation on the proposed Annual Plan, on which 1229 written submissions were received, and more than 110 submissions presented to Council in person. More than 84 per cent of respondents agreed with Council continuing to invest in rejuvenation and infrastructure projects, as outlined in the Long Term Plan. Lower Hutt Mayor Ray Wallace said the support for continuing the programme of rejuvenation was a great confirmation that Council is on the right track. “It’s essential the community agree with the direction we are taking our city in. We’ve enjoyed a tremendous couple of years with the development of new facilities that help stimulate economic and social growth in our city, and this work is set to continue,” he said As part of the Annual plan $140,000 has been allocated to the Petone and Wainuiomata Sportsville Groups to progress preliminary design options, funding plans and community consultation. Funding has also been set aside for the Basketball court at Frederick Wise park to receive lighting.

our nominees was high. “This year our categories included recognition for our young STEMM talent too and I’m very pleased to announce we’ve selected deserving young winners. “To see young people so passionate about science and technology is a fantastic signal that the future of the Hutt Valley is bright. “We’ve announced these young winners early so they have an opportunity to present their winning work at the Technology Valley Awards dinner on June 9 which I’m sure are going to impress the audience.”

This is the second year of the Technology Valley Awards, which will be presented at a STEMMthemed awards dinner on 9 June during Lower Hutt’s STEMM Festival. Dinner organiser Carla Steed says “the awards dinner is set to be something special.” “We’re bringing in performers to surprise and delight the audience and celebrate our winners in a unique way. “Even the venue is different, we’re using the majestic Old Ford Factory at 43 Seaview Road, right in the hub of our industrial centre."

TECH VALLEY: Chris Bishop, Steven Joyce and Hamish Campbell at the Isotope Centre

Scientific visit By Emma McAuliffe

The National Isotope Centre on the Wainuiomata Hill had a special visit last week. GNS’ office based on the Wainuiomata Hill was visited by National List MP, Chris Bishop and Minister of Science and Innovation Steven Joyce last Thursday for the pair to find out more about what GNS did in the Hutt Valley. GNS is New Zealand's leading provider of Earth, geoscience and isotope research and consultancy services. Their laboratory in Gracefield on the Wainuiomata Hill is the National Isotope Centre. It is described as New Zealand’s premier provider of isotope science expertise and the associated commercial applications. Mr Bishop and Mr Joyce received a tour of the centre and had a briefing on how GNS would be using the funding from Unlocking Curious Minds. GNS won $127,000 from the contestable fund for three different projects surrounding their work with young people and science.

One of the projects will involve schools around the Hutt Valley learning about the air quality in their school. Mr Bishop said the visit was “really good”. “Every time I visit a business I find myself learning even more. When I was at school I wasn’t really interested in science but [but since becoming an MP] I’ve found myself much more interested,” he said. He said he thought the centre was world class. “We’re really lucky to have them in the Hutt,” he said. It was Mr Joyce’s first time at the centre in Gracefield. “I always wanted to know what goes on here,” he said during the tour. Earlier in the day the pair went to the War Memorial Library and First Assembly to find out what the groups did regarding science and technology in Lower Hutt.  Do you think people in Wainuiomata should be more involved in science?

Sports talk with…

with Jacob Page America's love for Steven Adams

READY FOR THE GAME: Donovan Maxwell, Ron Chin, Evan Choie and Eru Tuterangiwhaitiri

New shirts for OGs By Emma McAuliffe

Wainuiomata’s OG Lions will be looking fresh when they take to the field again next week. The team recently got new t-shirts following a new sponsorship deal with Wainuiomata Pharmacy. This is the first time the pharmacy has sponsored a team since their merge last year. Co-owner of Wainuiomata Pharmacy, Ron Chin, said the store wanted to sponsor the team as they thought it would be a “good fit”. “[The games are] based around family and kids. It’s a nice environment to bring the kids to,” he said. The OG Lions are currently on a 20 win

streak, continuing from last season. They are tied top of the Reserves table with the Randwick Kingfishers Reserves. OG Lions team members Donovan Maxwell and Eru Tuterangiwhaitiri said they were pleased with their result. Donovan described the OGs as being a “social team”. “We don’t warm up, we don’t warm down. We don’t train,” said Donovan. The men weighed their success down to their experience in the field and taking on some younger guys this season, including Eru who is still at High School.  The OG Lions will return to the field on Saturday, June 11 against the Porirua City Phoenix Reserves at Whakatiki Park in Upper Hutt. Kick-off is at 1pm.

Baseball wonderchild Tane Mumu was chosen to represent New Zealand as part of the World Series Cal Ripken Under 13 Baseball team and will travel to Maryland, Baltimore USA in late July. His ‘Givealittle’ page is still running to give him a helping hand in achieving his baseball dreams. The community can donate to his cause at

Steven Adams is worth every penny of his new $20 million contract with the NBA's Oklahoma City Thunder, according to American sporting pundits. I have been fortunate enough to be in Las Vegas for the series between the Thunder and defending champions Golden State Warriors and I can tell you the Americans rate the big Kiwi centre. Even NBA legend Charles Barkley, an imposing big man during his time in the 1980s and 1990s says he would have loved to have played with Adams, who is the brother of double Olympic gold medalist Valerie Adams. The Americans love his physicality and presence under the hoop. His uncompromising style and ability to get under the skin of his competitors without being a dirty player. While the Thunder blew a 3-1 series lead to lose a chance to make the NBA finals by losing the last three games, Adams lost no admirers. The 22-year-old has made huge strides since he was selected 12th overall in the 2013 draft. Many expected him to be in the developmental D-league for a few

years before seeing any NBA action but Adams has proven the doubters wrong. Not only is he OKC's top centre, he's performing like a quality NBA player and has the big money contract to prove it. Not bad for a boy from Rotorua. When he entered the league he was seen as a good defender who needed to work on his shooting. He has done that, having had a few double-digit point games during the playoffs. He's also been a pugnacious rebounder and general menace. Just ask Draymond Green who fouled Adams during the series by kicking him below the belt. Adams has the potential to play for more than a decade in the top basketball league in the world, injuries and form provided. The Americans can't get enough of his Kiwi charm during interviews, his scraggy hair or dapper moustache. The OKC Thunder have become New Zealand's team and New Zealand has another sports star who is legitimately turning heads for all the right reasons in America.

A weekend of rugby By Emma McAuliffe

Wainuiomata rugby had a mixed weekend. The Premiers lost their final game in the Swindale Shield against Wellington. The final score was 33-26. The team will return next week for their first game in the Jubilee Cup against Wellington. The game will be played in Hataitai at 2.45pm. The Women’s team played their first

game of the Victoria Tavern Trophy and won their game against Old Boys University. The final score was 28-17. The Colts played Old Boys University White and won 67-0. This was the first game as part of Under 21 B Vic Calcinai Memorial Cup. The Wainuiomata High School 1XV team played Porirua ahead of the Premier game at the weekend. The final score was 36-22 to Wainuiomata.
