• The kaka is a large parrot belonging to the Nestorinae family which includes the kea and the extinct Norfolk Island kaka. • There are between 1000 and 5000 kaka currently in New Zealand. • There are two sub-species of kaka in New Zealand- the North Island Kaka and the South Island Kaka.
Trail project family friendly Continued from page 1 Tracks ranged from the ‘Kinderspiel’, which is made for children, to tougher rides such as the ‘Free Wheel’, for experienced BMX riders, Martin said. Martin said he was looking forward to breaking new ground with the Mohaka Valley track, which would be family friendly. “It would be a very entry level track, a grade two track- easier than the Te Whiti Riser. “The next valley is pretty special. It’s pretty cool over here, but the land over there is beautiful,” he said. He said much of the existing tracks were “utilised” by family groups and the new one would be too. “[The trail park] is one of the better places for younger people in the Wellington region,” he said.
He said while work on the Mohaka Valley track would begin in two weeks, it was difficult at this stage to estimate when work would be completed. “It really all depends on how much funding we have,” Martin said.

said the sighting was “really exciting” for the regional council. “One bird sighting does not necessarily mean a nesting population, but we are hoping that the habitat is now attractive to this threatened native species. “We see this unexpected sighting as demonstrating the importance of the regional council’s efforts to protect habitats that can support our native plants and animals.”
A kaka has been spotted in Wainuiomata for the first time in nearly 20 years. The Greater Wellington Regional Council reported the North Island Kaka was spotted at the Wainuiomata Water collection area during this year’s annual bird count by the Environmental Science Terrestrial team.

Resource consent has been granted for work to begin on the old clean fill site at Waiu Street. Consent has been granted to KJ Whitley to start developing the land on Waiu Street following a hearing in early May. A clean fill is a lot specified for the disposal of nonpolluting waste which includes material such as concrete, dirt and some construction rubble.
The previous clean fill on the Waiu Street site had gone into liquidation in 2014. KJ Whitley sought consent for the site last year and submissions were called for. The Hutt City Council received 12 submissions from local businesses and teams at the council, nine of which were in opposition. The Parks and Gardens team at the council opposed work on the site because they saw raising the level of the land to
three metres high would have “negative effects” on the existing features and topography. Others objected due to concern over dust and pollution. Consent was granted because it was seen as desirable for the site to be used rather than be left to deteriorate. At the front of the site is KO Panel and Paint. Manager Keith Ounsworth, said the land being developed was “the best thing that could have happened to it”.
“It’s good for nothing at the moment. It’s a wasteland. The land needs to be opened up,” he said. He said he remained positive the development would be beneficial to the community. “I’ll be the first to object if it becomes a problem,” he said. What would you like to see developed in Wainuiomata?

School takes part in march for language By Emma McAuliffe
Students took to the streets to show their support for Maori Language last week. Wainuiomata Intermediate’s Whanau class headed to the inaugural Te Reo Maori parade in Wellington last Monday to march and sing songs in support of Maori Language week. The Te Reo Maori parade was marched from Parliament to Te Papa and was the fi rst to be held in New Zealand. Also taking part were the Maori Language Week ambassadors Andrew Mehrtens, Jenny-May Clarkson, Nehe Milner and Julian Dennison. Deputy Principal at Wainuiomata Intermediate Mereana Brown said the parade was an
“amazing experience for all involved”. As part of the parade the students had the opportunity to do Kapa Haka with Maori Party MP Marama Fox and sing waiata, she said. “The students were aware that they were making history. It was a great way to launch Te Wiki o Te Reo Maori in our school and we had other activities over the week to encourage students, teachers and whanau to 'Akina te Reo' - give it a go,” she said.

League legend in the making By Emma McAuliffe
A local boy will be trialling for a national squad this week. Wainuiomata High School student Montelle Le’afa-Sione has been invited to trial for the New Zealand Under 18 Rugby League team. He was the only person from Wellington invited to the trials, which take place in Rotorua this week. The 17-year-old said he was “happy as” to have made the cut. “When I found out I made it I was

really excited,” Montelle said. Montelle said he has been playing rugby league since primary school and transferred his skills to rugby union this year as a member of the Wainuiomata High School 1XVs. He also plays for Wainuiomata’s U17s rugby league squad. Montelle said he had been doing extra trainings to prepare for the trials, including running up to the Wainuiomata water tower every evening. His mother, Windy Sione, said
Montelle had made selection to trial last year but selectors had gone with one of the older boys. “This year he will be one of the older boys,” she said. Montelle will have another opportunity to show off his skills in rugby league at the end of the year when he jets off to Australia to play for the Canberra Raiders U18 squad. He will leave in November for the summer after finishing school. “I’ve got my summer sorted,” Montelle said.
Makeover coming to town By Emma McAuliffe
Locals will have a week to make over the town centre later this year. Love Wainuiomata’s ‘7 Day’ makeover will be taking place on Queen Street from the Sunday, September 25 until Saturday, October 1. ‘7 Day Makeovers’ were started by David Engwicht in Australia as a way to bring communities together and create extraordinary places in areas of a town. Love Wainuiomata’s making stuff happen champion, Esther Venning, said the makeover would be a chance for locals to make the Wainuiomata’s town centre over with things they wanted to see in it. “What it will be is decided by the people involved,” she said. Esther said there were two core things to know about the makeover and what it meant for Wainuiomata. “This is your community, your home. It’s a great opportunity for people to make it feel like that and it’s about
people coming together with neighbours and groups,” she said. She said the call was currently out to anyone who could give some of their time to the makeover be it an hour or a few days. “We’d rather have 1000 people giving an hour each than 20 people full time. Our big thing is to get people to come into the town centre,” she said. Esther said the makeover was free to whoever wanted to join and people could get involved with projects they would like to see happen or take on smaller tasks surrounding the event. “Our focus is on recycling, reusing and repurposing,” she said. For more information or to get involved head to www.facebook. com/7dayWainuiomata or email email@example.com. An information evening will be held at the Wainuiomata Shopping Centre on Tuesday, August 16 from 6.30pm until 8pm.

Bronze for local Kindergarten By Emma McAuliffe
A local kindergarten has reason to celebrate their work with the environment after picking up an award last week. Arakura Kindergarten earned its Bronze Enviroschools award at a special ceremony last Tuesday. Enviroschools is a nationwide programme which supports children and young people to plan, design and implement sustainability actions important to them and their communities through a series of goals and awards. Arakura Kindergarten is the only kindergarten in Wainuiomata to have gained an Enviroschools award. Wainuiomata Primary School is the only other school in the valley to have one. Arakura Kindergarten teacher, Rob Collins, said it had taken the kindergarten two and a half years to earn their Bronze award. “We were the pilot programme for early childhood centres in Lower Hutt

and adapted the programme to our needs. We wanted to focus on zero waste and eliminate plastic wrap,” she said. Rob said the kindergarten had now managed to eliminate all plastic wrap from children’s lunches, and whatever did come in was recycled. “The whanau has been behind us in all of this,” she said. Rob said the kindergarten would now start to consider their journey towards the Silver award. “Bronze was the foundation setting the roots for sustainability and looking after the environment, [our children] becoming leaders in the future. It very much involved our community. “Silver is deeper thinking and direct focus. We’re getting our feedback and figuring out what we’re putting in place. Two years is the focus for silver,” she said.

Local concert for keen singers We have vacancies By Emma McAuliffe
A special concert for the community will be held this weekend at the Coast Road Church. Local man, James Davis, will be holding a community sing along this Saturday evening at the Church to celebrate the hymns town founders used to sing. James said he got the idea when he started to read the lyrics of hymns from the 19th century to understand the circumstances they were written under. “I’ve been down at the church looking at [the graves of] the original people and I was quite interested in who had died. These songs would have been the top 10 for them. “Songs today are quite shallow. These songs were about helping others. They were trying to find an anchor and for them it was Jesus, it was the cross. They would have been singing them right off the page when they were written,” James said. He said the concert would include famous numbers like John Newton’s ‘Amazing Grace’ among other hymns from the 19th century and he would play the songs on guitar alongside the audience singing them.

Youth get behind Maori Language Week By Emma McAuliffe
Youth around the valley got on board with Maori Language week last week. Youth from TiHei Rangatahi had a concert at the War Memorial Library in Lower Hutt last Tuesday afternoon showcasing original and well known songs in English and Te Reo. Performers from the group included Amahre Edwardson, Zahria and Jakhaia Awatere, Keita Moses, Nataahia Pasene and Reriti Moeahu. In the community hub the Wainuiomata Library held a special Baby Bounce and Rhyme and Storytime for the younger community
members. Schools around the valley also got involved with the week, having Kapa Haka performances and special events. Fernlea School celebrated the end of their school term with a hangi for family and friends. Students presented their own koru’s to their parents and sang Maori songs together. Fernlea School assistant principal Donna Goss called the event a “great success”. “It was a totally new experience for many students. Many of them loved the hangi, some even coming back for seconds and thirds,” she said.

T he Hut t cit y Council is warning residents against polluting the enviroment with detergents. Hutt City Council is frustrated by residents, groups and businesses continuing to pollute the city’s waterways when they wash their cars, including those who believe b io d eg r a d a ble d e t e r ge nt s
are eco-friendly. Regulatory Services Divisional Manager Geoff Stuart said there were no environmentally friendly detergents including biodegradable brands. “Any detergent or cleaning agent that gets into the city’s storm water drains when a resident washes their car ultimately ends up in our
streams, rivers and harbour. The impact on our environment can be devastating,” he said. Council recommended residents use a commercial car wash. If residents preferred to wash their car at home, they could reduce environmental harm by washing on a lawn or gravel.

Leaving on a JET plane Five young people from the Hutt Valley will be jetting to Japan later this month to teach English to locals. Thomas Palmer, Hannah Van Vliet, Martin Wabnitz, April Sului and Malcolm Pimentel were chosen to travel to Minoh in Japan as part of the Japan Exchange Teaching (JET) programme. Minoh has been Lower Hutt’s Sister City for 21 years. The JET programme is open for anyone with a university degree in any subject who wishes to teach English to schools in Japan. The five chosen from the Hutt Valley met with Lower Hutt Mayor Ray Wallace at the weekend to discuss their upcoming trip and how they would represent Lower Hutt whilst overseas. Mr Wallace said he was pleased to meet the young ambassadors who would be teaching English in schools and interact with locals strengthening the Lower Hutt-Minoh Sister City relationship. The five would also be very involved with the Hutt Friendship Club based in Minoh which is in contact with Lower Hutt every month, he said. Mr Wallace said he hoped more students from Wainuiomata would consider taking on the JET programme in future years. “Wainuiomata already has a very close link with Japan through the Wainuiomata High School International Students programme,” he said.

School shows off its culture By Emma McAuliffe

Intermediate students explored their diversity with a special cultural week before the end of term. Wainuiomata Intermediate held their annual Cultural Week in Week Nine of Term Two to celebrate the diversity and different cultures within their school.
Wainuiomata Intermediate Principal Pearl Murti said the school took part by creating ‘Identity Art’ and writing stories about their culture. “It was the culmination of our Social Science topic, IdentityWho are we as a nation of people? Students completed their Inquiry Learning studies and we cel-
ebrated everyone’s culture with students sharing their culture with others through costume, food, art, songs and dances,” she said. The week came to an end with a special Cultural Parade and Kapa Haka last Friday morning. Students had the option to wear cultural dress and take part in parade in front of family and friends.
Facility helps remove any extra stress The Wairarapa is a pretty great place to live. With laid back locals and beautiful scenery, the best of the good life is on offer. But when residents Brent and Jeanette Elder found that Jeanette needed specialist cancer treatment at Wellington Hospital, the Wairarapa suddenly seemed very remote. The logistics of travelling and managing Jeanette’s cancer journey took on new meaning, potentially adding a significant amount to their existing stress levels. “The travel can be the real killer” said Brent. “Jeanette really needed to be close to the hospital without any worries associated with traveling or costs,” he said. “She needed to be in a com-
fortable place so that she could focus her efforts on maintaining the strength she needed for her cancer journey.” Margaret Stewart House is located on the grounds of Wellington hospital, and is run by the Cancer Society Wellington. It provides support for people like Brent and Jeanette whilst they have treatment at the Wellington Blood and Cancer Centre. It hosts not only patients receiving treatment, but their friends and whanau too and up to 40 people can be accommodated. “The family atmosphere, the facilities and the volunteers are amazing,” said Brent. “We are greatly indebted to the Cancer Society for providing such a great facility, as I am sure
are so many others. “It certainly helped us through our cancer journey, by having the support of the facility and staff.” The Cancer Society is currently running its ‘Power Up’ campaign. Through the campaign, it hopes to raise $70,000 to cover the costs of 115 solar panels. This will save over $300,000 during the 25 year warranty period; freeing up money for the Cancer Society Wellington to spend on other essential cancer services. The Wainuiomata News will be tracking the Cancer Society’s progress throughout its Power Up campaign. Check in each week to see updates on fundraising efforts.

Top week for netball By Emma McAuliffe
Wainuiomata netball had a successful week with wins for the high school and Ulalei teams. The Wainuiomata High School Premier 1 team took on Taita College last Thursday afternoon and won 40-20. The first half was tight between the two teams however Wainuio-
mata continued to pull ahead with a strong attack and defence. The Collegiate 3 team took on Hutt Valley High School at the Taita courts on Saturday. After a tight game Wainuiomata pulled ahead and won 17-14. Ulalei Premier 1 took on Upper Hutt Maidstone United 4 and won 58-55.
Wainuiomata rugby had a good week winning their three Saturday home games. The Women’s team took on the Norths in their semi-final game and won 35-10. The team will now be taking on OrientalRongotai in the finals for their season at William Jones Park. The game will be played at 11.30am and the community is encouraged to go along and support the women.

Sportsville moving forward By Emma McAuliffe
Sportsville has been looking to the future with plans to move forward with clubs around the valley. Sportsville was launched by the Hutt City Council in 2009 to bring together sports clubs into one maintainable location and ease the burden on volunteers in the community. There are currently three Sportsvilles in the Hutt Valley- Fraser Park, Petone and Wainuiomata. The sports clubs involved in Wainuiomata’s Sportsville are rugby, rugby league, football, bowls, cricket, squash, softball, croquet and Sport Wainuiomata. Ken Laban said Wainuiomata Sportsville was looking at the concerns of the sporting community when moving ahead with the new ideas. “Our big concern facing the majority of our sports clubs is the state of facilities and what the future of sport in Wainuiomata is going to look like,” he said.
Ken said the “real challenge” for the clubs was ongoing maintenance and insurance costs and it was up to Sportsville to make predictions as to what sport would look like in Wainuiomata in years to come. “We’re trying to make decisions for those in Wainuiomata who haven’t even been born yet,” he said. Ken said the group’s next challenge was to move forward with plans- now funding had been allocated by the Hutt City Council for the project to continue. “How do we rationalise, how do we make a decision? What is its impact? All of these things lead to establishing and trying to get a clear vision,” he said. Ken acknowledged there had been opposition to Sportsville in the past however maintained clubrooms in their current state would not last. “The current majority of clubrooms are just not sustainable. Having said that in the majority of clubs there have been weddings, funerals a variety of celebrations that give a legacy.”
Sports talk with Jacob Page...
Why are footballers so angry? AT THE BACK: Uale Mai gets the sack line going. PHOT O: Daryl New Photography
GOT IT: Peter Umaga-Jensen from the Premiers with the ball. PHOTO: Daryl New Photography
I cover a broad range of sports every weekend, have done for seven years and I watch even more in my personal time, but no sport is full of more physical and verbal angst like football. Players complain to the referee, whinge at each other and their opponents and often the sideline shouting and refereeing from the sidelines is boarder line intimidation. I talk to these same players and coaches post-match and they're all genuinely nice people. It's like a red haze comes across them for 90 minutes and then evaporates the moment the final whistle blows. I've watched the Euros in an effort to see if this is an issue that the highest level of the game is encouraging and
I have to believe that's the case.. Players surrounding referees after a free kick, arguing and pointing fingers like children bickering over a toy. Rugby doesn't have this problem, hockey and netball the same. There isn't enough money in the world for me to consider being a football referee. It's essentially signing up for 90 minutes of abuse. It's time grown men played the game like they were mature, not as toddlers disagreeing in a sandpit. Just because these largely verbal outbursts are accepted as the way it is, doesn't make it right. Teams should respect officials who are often giving up their time for the same reason the players are - because they love the beautiful game.
