Jasmine receives scholarship

By Sharnahea Wilson

A nine-year-old Khandallah girl has danced her way to the top, receiving a nation-wide scholarship for most promising Grade student. Jasmine Cornes of Carolyn McKeefry’s Khandallah Ballet Academy was one of about 300 dancers across New Zealand who were graded by an international examiner recently. Not only did the dedicated dancer receive distinction in her exam, she was also awarded with the Beverley Bowen Scholarship which involved a certificate and a cheque. “It’s quite nice because most scholarships are awarded to more advanced students,” her ballet teacher Carolyn said.

A Petone pie-master has yet again proved his worth after cleaning up at this year’s Bakels New Zealand Supreme Pie Awards. A panel of 21 judges spent the day on July 21 testing thousands of entries across 12 different categories. Roger Cathro, of Pak‘nSave Petone, has won awards since he first starting entering his pies into the competition in 2013. This year was no exception. Roger walked away with two first place spots – one for his famous potato top pie and the other for his steak and mushroom pie which came under the gourmet meat section. Roger, who has been a baker for 20 years, also impressed the judges with Pak‘nSave Petone manager Ben O’Sullivan and baker his mince and gravy recipe which took Roger Cathro enjoy award-winning potato top and steak out second place. and mushroom pies.

Khandallah dancer shows promise She said the students examined were between the ages of seven and 11, and Jasmine received the scholarship because she showed the most promise. The scholarship was named after Beverley Bowen who was a ballet teacher in Auckland, and was set up by the International Dance Teachers’ Association. It is awarded once a year during Grade examinations. Carolyn was surprised a dancer from her small studio had received the scholarship but said her students tend to do very well, with 85 per cent of them receiving distinction in their exams. After Carolyn received the phone call telling her Jasmine would receive the scholarship, she had to wait 10 days to tell the young dancer the good news as she was away on

holiday with her family. Jasmine’s mum Jo Styles was thrilled when she heard her daughter would receive the scholarship. “I didn’t even realise the scholarship existed so it came completely out of the blue,” she said. Jo said Jasmine had been dancing for five years and loves everything dance-related. “She also does tumbling, cheer sports and hockey – she’s a very busy girl. “She does work very hard,” Jo said. Once Jo had explained to Jasmine what the scholarship was, the young dancer was surprised and excited. She will now work towards achieving grade three. Carolyn McKeefry also runs ballet classes at the Island Bay Community Centre.

“I spend every day trying to make the pies the best I can,” he explained. Roger entered nine categories including two new categories this year – vegetarian and chicken. The pies go through extensive examination – first they are judged cold then they are cut in half and judged again before they are cooked and judged for a third time. If they pass the first three stages they then get tasted. Roger, who can source most of his ingredients from within the Pak‘nSave store, said there were many aspects to making an award-winning pie. “You need quality ingredients and you have to make sure every step is the same.” Pak‘nSave Petone manager Ben O’Sullivan said Roger’s pies keep people coming back. “Even in the summer they are still popular.”

Newlands college group lose locks for cancer By Sharnahea Wilson

Three Newlands College students and one teacher got up on stage in front of their peers and colleagues and shaved their hair off for cancer last week. Year 12 students Charlotte Gill, Jesse Rainey and Joshua Steele, along with Year 12 Dean Jerome Cargill had been raising money for the Leukaemia and Blood Cancer Foundation with a target of $2500. The team has exceeded that goal and is sitting on $2677 – with $1917 of that having been

raised by Charlotte. Jerome was the first up at the “hair razing” event last Thursday. “One of the boys approached me and asked me to be involved. I didn’t realise at the time that would mean shaving off my hair.” But he was a good sport and joined the three students to help raise money for a great cause. Charlotte, whose long curly hair would be donated to make a wig, said she had wanted to participate in Shave for a Cure for a while. “I think my family is more

upset about me losing my hair than I am.” Jesse had also decided closer to the start of the year to take part in Shave for a Cure and lose his locks. “I thought ‘I have a lot of hair, I might as well do my bit to help’.” Josh was the last to join and had only committed to shaving off his beard, but on the day he was talked into shaving his hair off too. Jamie Dicks from Custom Cutz donated his time to shave the group’s hair and Custom

Cutz donated five vouchers for free haircuts to put towards the worthy cause. Two of the vouchers were given away as prizes and the last three were auctioned off, which raised a further $240 for the Leukaemia and Blood Cancer Foundation on the day.  You can still donate to the Newlands College team by heading to: https://secure.

Wellington and Beijing celebrate 10 year relationship Wellington and Beijing, the Capital cities of New Zealand and China respectively, celebrated the tenth anniversary of their sister city relationship last week with a special football match between the Wellington Phoenix F.C. and Beijing BG. The match was the first of what is planned to be a regular series between the teams. It was played at the Beijing Olympic Park in front of 20,000 people with the final score being 2-1. Mayor of Wellington Celia Wade-Brown said the game signified the warm relationship between the two cities. “The Chinese crowd welcomed the Phoenix and everyone appreciated the competitive game,” she said.

Late American artist’s work exhibited in New Zealand for first time Victoria University of Wellington’s Adam Art Gallery is currently displaying the work of the late Walker Evans, one of America’s most influential twentieth-century photographers. Evans is celebrated for his documentary photographs that captured people, places and things through a period of modern American history. The exhibit at Adam Art Gal-

lery, “Walker Evans: The Magazine Work”, was conceived by acclaimed British curator and writer David Campany and focusses on Evans’ work for magazines, which he produced throughout his 50 year career until his death in 1975. It is the first presentation of Evans’ work in New Zealand. London-based David was in Wellington for the opening of

the show in July and gave public talks last week at City Gallery Wellington and Adam Art Gallery. He said Evans never “used the pages simply to showcase his talents as an image-maker”. “He was truly committed to fashioning a counter-commentary on America and its values but from within its mainstream magazine culture.”

Chocolate maker Amanda O’Donoghue will take her Esque Fine Chocolate stall to the New Zealand Chocolate festival this month. PHOTO: Sharnahea Wilson

A Thorndon woman threw herself in the deep end when she decided to buy a chocolate brand 18 months ago without ever having made the treat before. Amanda O’Donoghue bought Esque Fine Chocolate and had just two days of training before she was on her own. After having an extensive career in hospitality, Amanda was excited to delve into the world of chocolate – and her hard work has paid off. She took the Esque brand up a notch when she decided everything she sold would be dairy free, gluten free, Fair Trade and primarily organic. “Dairy free chocolate has a beautiful fresh taste to it – it’s quite a different flavour.” Amanda works with unique flavours including orange, mandarin, dried cherry, manuka honey and sea salt – mixed in with her 66 per cent chocolate. “The whole range is very New Zealand inspired.” All of Amanda’s chocolates come beautifully gift wrapped in organic paper. She also plays around with an 88 per cent chocolate but said 66 per cent proved the most popular. Every second week the chocolate-maker sells her small treats at a stall at the

Thorndon Market and said her bars are the perfect gift for someone else or for people to treat themselves. This year she will take part in the New Zealand Chocolate Festival for the first time, which will be held at Te Papa Museum over two days on August 13 and 14. Sessions for the chocolate festival will run from 10am-2pm then 3pm-7pm each day.

100-tonne crane to transform Cable Car Lane Part of Lambton Quay will be closed to buses and general traffic this weekend for further construction on Wellington’s iconic Cable Car Lane. The closure from 8pm on August 5 to 5am on August 8 will allow sections of steel frame for the new canopy to be safely manoeuvered into position by a crane. Wellington City Council project manager Anna Harley said the crane work was an essential part of building the elegant new glass canopy that would replace the leaky old one removed last month. "This is our second most popular tourist destination, a key transport link for locals, and right in the heart of Lambton Quay – so we want to improve the experience and make this lane another feature of the city we can be proud of.” Businesses will be open as usual and pedestrians will still be able to use the area,

including Cable Car Lane. The 100-tonne crane with a 45-metre boom would need to be positioned on the road adjacent to Cable Car Lane. During the road closure, buses will take a slightly different route. Most bus stops on Lambton Quay will operate as usual but two stops will be closed – the one by the ANZ Bank and the stop outside Cable Car Lane. The temporary buses to the Cable Car Lookout will leave from Lambton Quay near Farmers during the weekend. The trolley bus wires will be reinstalled once the work is complete and things will be back to normal by early Monday.  The Cable Car will be back in action on Monday, August 15 and the work being done in the lane – which is the first part of a two-stage upgrade – is due to be complete in October.

New initiative leads the way for health care The Newlands Medical Centre is one of four practices to be leading the way in health care with an enhanced range of services for patients. Around 40,000 patients from the Raumati Road Surgery and Newlands, Karori and Johnsonville Medical Centres will benefit from improved access options. The Capital and Coast District Health Board and local PHOs – Compass Health, Cosine, Ora Toa and Well Health rolled out the new Health Care Homes model across the Wellington Region in July. Newlands Medical Centre Practice Manager Wendy Slight said she has already seen a difference in efficiency since the services started. With the new services patients can book appointments, get prescriptions and see their test results online through Patient Portal, as well as being able to have over-thephone consultations. “It’s about future proofing our healthcare,” Wendy said. She said the practice had been thinking of other ways to manage their time better such as taking the answering of phones off the front desk so receptionists could focus on the patient in front of them. Compass Health CEO Martin Hefford said the Health Care Home Practice offered a strength-

ened care team built around the needs of patients and their families. He said this would make it easier to get a wider range of services locally without having to go to the hospital. “This might include regular meetings with district nurses, physiotherapists or pharmacists to wrap services around patients,” he said. A Newlands mother of two said

the new services would benefit her family. “The flexibility of options can make a big difference to someone’s day when they can have an appointment over the phone and choose not to drive sick kids across town.” The new services will also help with getting same-day appointments, messaging GPs and after hours staff will be able to access patients’ health records.

David Jones officially opens in Wellington City More than 150 people joined Prime Minister John Key recently for the official opening of the David Jones department store in the heart of Wellington City. This was a significant milestone in the 178 year history of David Jones as it was the first international store to be opened by the Australian-based company. The store was opened on Wellington’s ‘Golden Mile’, Lambton Quay on July 28 and the Prime Minister unveiled a commemorative plaque. David Jones Chief Executive Officer John Dixon said the David Jones team were excited to offer their customers in Wellington a premium retail experience on par with the best department stores globally. “We’ve worked hard to inject a level of ambience, excitement and experience into our design, store content, product assortment and services that will provide our customers in New Zealand with a world class shopping experience.”

The large store occupies the space where the well-known Kirkcaldie and Stains department store was. The store that was established in 1863 by John Kirkcaldie and Robert Stains closed earlier this year. David Jones expanded its range of New Zealand brands in line with the store opening to ensure local brands are well represented. New labels include Wellington-born label Twenty-Seven Names, popular women’s fashion labels Karen Walker, Kate Sylvester and Saben, and menswear brand Rodd & Gunn, all making their David Jones debut in Wellington. It will also offer New Zealand labels that are currently stocked in its Australian stores such as Sabatini and Trelise Cooper. David Jones Wellington operates over three floors offering more than 500 brands across fashion, beauty, accessories and home and a premium café offering breakfast and lunch.

Students are getting active in Newlands By Sharnahea Wilson

PHOTO CREDIT: Emma Cree, blogger from

Newlands College students are getting active this year by developing projects that will help the community. A group of seven Year 9 students will put their skills to the test after they decided to give the Newlands shopping centre a much-needed makeover. Heaven-Leigh Wharehinga, Katelyn McStay, Emma Chang, Constance Natta, Jeandre Botha, Kristian Demicoli and Dillan Thiagarajah will look to make the centre of Newlands an attractive hub. As part of a school-wide project, every student is asked to be part of a group that would then come up with a project for Newlands College’s new active learning initiative. Dillan was the first to notice the shopping centre was in need of a spruce up. “I thought it needed to look better for families and the community.” He took the idea to his group and everyone jumped on board. The 13 to

14-year-old students decided they should plant a new garden and get rid of graffiti in the shopping area. As part of the project the students needed to get in touch with MP for Ohariu Peter Dunne and staff at the Wellington City Council to get the go-ahead on planting and graffiti removal. “We had a meeting with Peter Dunne and he gave us lots of good people to contact,” Constance said. Emma said the area is mainly occupied by students after school. “We also want to make it a smoke free area so we are trying to get permission to put signs up.” Although the students said it was daunting getting in touch with the people who could give them permission to complete their project, they were looking forward to getting started on the makeover. The students will continue to work on their projects for the rest of the year and will hold presentations once projects are complete.

Amalgamation now “on the back burner” Wellington Mayor Celia Wade-Brown has welcomed last Friday’s Local Government Commission recommendations on local governance in the Wellington region. “I am glad that the Commissioners confirm that amalgamation of all councils in Wellington is off the table. This is very much in line with the opinion of the majority of the communities in the area. This new-found collaborative approach has been a great improvement. “Wairarapa residents prefer one Wairarapa district council and the Local Government Commission support is an important step.” Ms Wade-Brown said it was good the Commission had recognised Wellington City’s significant progress recently on water supply and economic development – with the establishment of Wellington Water and the Wellington Regional Economic Development Agency.

Deputy Mayor and Northern Ward Councillor Justin Lester also welcomed the Local Government Commission’s report and agreed amalgamation was now “on the back burner”. He urged the Commission to prioritise its investigations into the organisation and control of regional transport. “It is widely agreed that we can do far better in terms of transport planning and administration,” Mr Lester said. He said it was essential to have a single regional organisation that would oversee all forms of transport. “At the moment our piecemeal, multiagency approach is holding back progress – especially in terms of public transport.”  Do you think there should be an amalgamation of councils in the Wellington region?

A dog works on stage three of a Nosework trial.

Dogs put their noses to the test By Sharnahea Wilson

A pack of dogs did their owners and their trainer proud when they put their sniffing skills to the test at a Nosework trial. Jan Voss from A.C.E Dog Training runs small family-friendly dog and puppy training classes across Wellington and recently started training dogs for sniff tests. “I have been instructing for about 20 years but I started my company in 2010,” Jan said. Jan’s nose classes are proving popular and she now has more advanced classes for keen sniffers. The Wellington Novice Nosework trial, which was held on Saturday, July 30 at “The Barn” in Upper Hutt, was only the second of its kind to be held in New Zealand. “We're used to seeing this in the context of customs and service work and some of

our owners do have a serious focus, such as truffle hunting,” Jan said. “But for most it is a way to develop a better relationship and have fun with their best friend, while doing something they both enjoy.” She said there was one dog from Nelson and seven locally who took part in the trial. “It was really great that [the owners] were brave enough to take part – but also to watch the dogs at work and to see how they show up.” During the trial the dogs had to complete tasks in four scenarios – container, interior room, vehicle and external search. The skilled dogs were looking for a cotton bud that had been sitting in the same container as a drop of Clove Bud oil. The dogs received prize packs from Orijen Pet Foods for all their hard work.  For more information on A.C.E Dog Training visit: http://acedogtraining.

Council to consult with community on medium density housing The Wellington City Council says it will work with the community when it comes to decisions made about medium density housing in Newlands. To address the need for more housing the council kicked off the next stage of consultation with the Newlands community on a draft District Plan Change. The draft Plan Change incorporated feedback from the previous consultation late last year and proposed mediumdensity housing and draft building design standards to ensure new developments recognised Newlands’ character. “There is a clear need for more housing, especially smaller homes with smaller low maintenance sections... The Council’s Housing Choice project is a step towards this,” Wellington Mayor Celia WadeBrown said. “Over the past six years Newlands town centre has been improved enormously and we believe Newlands is now suitable for more homes to be built with more housing choices.” Councillor Andy Foster, Chair of the Council’s Transport and Urban Development Committee, said the area around Newlands Town Centre was one

of several parts of the city identified in the Wellington Urban Growth Plan as good places to have more people living by allowing more homes to be built. “Consolidating new housing within existing suburbs in easy walking distance from town centres helps support growth and vitality of the town centres.” He said seeing more people who were unable to drive made the case for more people being able to live close to their shops, their social and recreation facilities and their public transport even more compelling. The community is invited to learn more or discuss their views with council planners at drop-in sessions. These will be held at Newlands Community Centre on August 10, 4pm–7pm and August 13, 10.30am–4pm. The Newlands community is encouraged to have their say on the proposed MDRA boundary and the proposed housing design standards by Friday, August 26 at 4pm. People can submit feedback online at  What are your views on medium density housing in Newlands? Send your thoughts to

and applications are invited from clubs, community groups, residents’ associations, charities and youth groups. Applications for this and other council funds can be made through the Wellington City Council website funding. Applications must be received by 5pm Friday, September 16 and decisions will be announced in mid-October.

Question: Do young people do enough to help their communities?

Emma Chang – Churton Park

Constance Natta – Newlands

Heaven-Leigh Wharehinga - Newlands

Kristian Demicoli – Johnsonville

Katelyn McStay – Newlands

I think it depends on how much respect people have for the community – Some make sure it is tidy and others skate around on peoples’ property and don’t have respect for it.

Some do but some don’t really care – I think most of us could do more.

I think most students would get more involved with the community if they had different opportunities. People do naughty things for something to do.

Some do help by putting rubbish that is on the ground in the bin but others don’t really put effort into helping the environment.

The majority of young people don’t, I think we could all definitely do more. A lot of young people take their communities for granted.

Dillan Thiagarajah – Churton Park A lot of people don’t really think about the consequences of their actions so they don’t tend to take care of their community or the environment.

EYE ON CRIME In Johnsonville a house in Chesterton Street was entered via a forced aluminium window at the rear of the property. A quantity of clothing and shoes were stolen. A sleep-out on a property in Dominion Park Street was entered through forced French doors but nothing appears to have been taken. Commercial offices located on Johnsonville Road were broken into. A back room window was smashed to gain ac-

cess. Two computers were stolen. In Trafalgar Street the victim arrived home in time to scare off two offenders who had smashed a window in a sliding door in an attempt to enter the house. A white Ford Laser parked locked and secure in the Countdown carpark on Johnsonville Road was broken into by tampering with the driver’s door lock. Coins from the coin tray were taken. A black Subaru Forester drove off without paying

at a service station on Johnsonville Road. A tradesman’s van parked in the car park behind McDonald’s in Moorefield Road during the afternoon was broken into. Power and hand tools were stolen. In Newlands a house in Miles Crescent was entered through an aluminium window at the rear of the house. A play station and controller and an Apple Macbook were stolen. Two white Hino heavy motor vehicles parked

over the weekend on an empty section in Cedarwood Street were broken into and damaged. A silver Toyota Corolla parked in Black Rock Road had its front registration plate stolen. In Khandallah a silver Toyota Hiace van parked in Homebush Road was stolen. A quantity of tradesman’s power tools that were in the vehicle have been recovered. In Ngaio a black Suzuki Moped was stolen from outside a house

in Kenya Street. The garage of a house in Armitage Street was broken into and a motor bike and some tools were stolen. In Grenada Village two houses in Havana Rise had their front door locks damaged in attempted break-ins. In Broadmeadows a red Holden Commodore parked in Jaunpur Crescent had its front passenger window smashed and a radar detector stolen.

Do you know a Local Hero? The Independent Herald, in conjunction with the Johnsonville Shopping Centre will be running a new 'Local Hero' feature. In our up-coming issues we would like to celebrate those people in the community who might not be getting the recognition they deserve for the inspiring deeds they do. Each month we will choose one Local Hero from the local community who has done a good deed (sorry no volunteer groups as we want to recognise independent individuals). This can be anything from

someone raising money for a sick child, to someone dedicating their time to helping people in need. The feature will give people the chance to thank those people in the community whose good deeds might go unrecognised. Each Local Hero will be interviewed for a story with a photo and will receive a voucher for the Johnsonville Shopping Centre.  If you would like to nominate someone who fits the bill, contact Sharnahea Wilson at herald@ or on 5871660.

200 litre emergency water tanks are proving popular in Churton Park.

Residents get prepared for emergency Emergency water tanks have been selling like hot cakes in the northern suburbs. Northern Ward Councillor Malcolm Sparrow advertised that he would make the 200 litre water tanks available for one hour last Saturday. He set the tanks up outside New World in Churton Park where locals could put their orders in to get prepared for civil emergencies. Thirty-five of the emergency tanks were sold on the day and the councillor took orders for another 15.

“Several people have indicated how difficult it is for locals to get into the CBD during the working week to buy these tanks from the city council service centre,” Mr Sparrow said. “There is clearly a need for them to be made available locally, which is precisely what I am doing.” Churton Park Community Association representatives Brian Sheppard and Beckie Duffy were also on hand to promote the upcoming “emergency response planning” sessions for Churton Park and Glenside residents. The team will be back outside

the Churton Park New World on Saturday, August 6 from 11am to 12pm to continue selling the tanks. They will also continue to promote the three meetings that will discuss an emergency response plan for the two neighbouring suburbs.  The meetings will be held on August 11, August 25 and September 8 and will start at 7pm at the Churton Park School Hall, 90 Churton Drive. New orders for the tanks can be sent to

Policewomen march through Wellington in Celebration of 75 years in the police force.

75 years of women in the New Zealand police

Crowds gathered in central Wellington, along with policewomen, policemen, dogs and horses to celebrate 75 years of women in the police force. A parade, led by Commissioner Mike Bush, Minister of Police Judith Collins and victims’ advocate and New Zealand Police wing patron Louise Nicholas, was held on Monday. It featured around 800 police officers and police staff from across the country, retired staff, the New Zealand Police Pipe Band, women dressed in replica uniforms from across the decades, police dogs, puppies, old style police cars and much more.

The event is a culmination of a national torch relay which began its tour of the country from Cape Reinga and Bluff on June 24. Since then the relay has passed through all twelve Police Districts, travelling down the North Island and up the South Island. The two halves of the torch were joined together as one and carried in the national parade by one of the first women police officers in New Zealand, Marie Storey, who joined in 1943, and one of the newest women recruits. Police Commissioner Mike Bush said a parade was a fitting way to end the national

relay and an opportunity for the public to join in the celebrations. “Seventy five years is a significant milestone and I [was] immensely proud to walk alongside just some of the many fantastic police staff, both men and women from around New Zealand. “I know we will recruit even more capable women into our organisation in the future.” The parade started from Civic Square at 12:15pm and travelled down Mercer Street, onto Willis Street then down Lambton Quay to Parliament, where it was welcomed by the New Zealand Police Kapa Haka group.

Through its ‘Power Up’ campaign the Cancer Society hopes to raise $70,000 to cover the costs of 115 solar panels, which will produce a 30kW capacity for The Cancer Society’s Margaret Stewart House accommodation facility. The facility provides daily accommodation for up to 40 out-of-town patients having cancer treatment at the Wellington Blood and Cancer Centre.

Record-breaking pork and ham By Emma McAuliffe

THE BEST MEAT: Gavin Cameron, Rob Cameron and Adam Shackleton, with their award winning bacon and ham. PHOTO: Emma McAuliffe

A local butcher has shown who has the best pork after taking out four prizes at the 100% New Zealand Prok, Bacon and Ham awards. Cameron Harrison, located in Ngaio and Kelburn, took out two gold awards, a silver award and a bronze at the event held last Tuesday night. The butchery won the gold for middle bacon for their Manuka Double Smoked, gold for their Manuka honey shoulder bacon, silver for their Honey Cured Black Rock boneless ham and a bronze for their Manuka Double Smoked bone-in ham. Co-owner Rob Cameron said this was the 14th time Cameron Harrison had placed in the awards in the five years they had entered the competition.

He said they hold the record for the highest amount of placings anyone had ever received in the decade since the competition began. “No one else has done what we have done,” Cameron said. Rob said he owed the butchery’s success to their consistency with their products and “traditional methods” used when producing the made-to-order products. “The majority of the bacon is still done the way it was done 20, 30, 40 years ago [with] less moisture and more flavour,” he said.  Cameron Harrison is located on Crofton Road, Ngaio and Upland Road, Kelburn. Cameron Harrison meats are also available at New World Thorndon and Chaffers, as well as at Moore Wilsons and Egmont St Eatery.

Karori gears up for Food Truck Friday

Environment committee to discuss potential animal policies

The second ever Karori Food Truck Friday is fast approaching. Locals are encouraged to gather their friends and family and head down to Food Truck Friday on August 5. The event will take place on the first Friday of every month and it will feature delicious authentic food, music and great conversation with your neighbours. “It was great to have at least a few hundred come last month,” community and youth development worker for the Karori Community Centre Christoph Zintl said. Food Truck Friday was established to help members of the community get to know each other in a fun and social environment. The event will go from 4pm to 7pm at 237 Karori Road (between St John Hall and Mobil Gas Station) and is run in cooperation with the Karori Community Centre and Absolutely Positively Wellington. Head along for great food, great music and great company.

New potential animal policies for the Wellington area are set to be discussed at a meeting on Thursday. Cats owners might soon be required to micro-chip their pets while the central city could soon become more dog-friendly. These are among a raft of recommendations to be considered by the Wellington City Council’s environment committee on Thursday, stemming from public consultation earlier this year over possible rule changes affecting animals in the city. The committee’s chair, councillor Iona Pannett, said the council received more than 750 submissions on proposed animal rules and on proposed changes to areas where dogs can and cannot go. She said the number of submissions received confirmed people


were passionate about cats, dogs and other animals. “The general feedback is that we are on the right track with the proposed changes – there’s strong public support.” Amongst changes to be discussed on Thursday, would be a requirement that all cats in the capital be either micro-chipped or wearing an identification collar by the end of 2017. The proposed changes to cat management aimed to protect domestic cats and encourage responsible cat ownership, Ms Pannett said. The committee would also discuss easing restrictions on dogs in the CBD, making changes to some dog parks and increasing access times to some beaches, where there are currently summer restrictions in place. Among the recommendations to

the committee was there should be no limits on cats in ‘sensitive areas’ including near Zealandia Wildlife Sanctuary in Karori.  The committee’s decisions at the meeting will be subject to confirmation at a meeting of the full council on August 17.

Students get down in the dirt planting native trees Windy Wellington weather did not deter around 80 keen Victoria University students and graduates from planting some 2000 trees recently. On Saturday, July 23 the students banded together to plant native trees on the Te Ahumairangi Hill in Wadestown. The big dig was part of the Growing Graduates agreement between Wellington City Council and Victoria University – in which the university funds tree planting at this site to celebrate new graduates. Victoria University Provost Professor Wendy Larner was among the planters and said the

University was a key part of Wellington city and its capital city location was a major factor in what made it distinctive. “We aim to contribute locally to Wellington as well as globally as a world leader in sustainable development and preserving our natural heritage,” she explained. “We’re determined to make a real contribution to the world’s natural challenges…The Growing Graduates programme is one way we can turn these aspirations into a meaningful reality.” Council Parks, Sport and Recreation staff also pitched in and gave advice on how to give seedlings the best chance of flourishing on

the exposed slope. Open Space and Parks Manager Amber Bill said the large site was being steadily replanted after the pine and macrocarpa trees had to be removed after serious storm damage in 2013. Among the species planted were matipo, tree hebe, fivefinger, coastal daisy, toetoe, karamu, taupata and ngaio. All are tough, hardy plants that establish shelter so other species can be added at a later date. In the four years the Growing Graduates programme has been running, over 8000 trees have been planted on Te Ahumairangi Hill.

Victoria University students and graduates enjoy a native tree planting day.

Karori girl gets creative with the Navy By Sharnahea Wilson

Neakiry Kivi enjoyed her trip to the Navy base.

A local school girl has been named a finalist in the Operation Neptune: Secondary Schools Creative Competition. Neakiry Kivi of Samuel Marsden Collegiate School, Karori, was overwhelmed when she discovered she would be a finalist in the Royal New Zealand Navy Competition. As part of the Navy’s 75th Anniversary celebrations, students developed creative proposals relating to one of the key themes – “courage, commitment, comradeship” or “roots, our story, our mission”. “I didn’t expect to be selected as a finalist,” Neakiry explained.

“After the initial shock, I realised I was actually going to create this piece of music that I had proposed to compose and I was really excited to do that. All these ideas and thoughts popped into my head and I became really motivated to produce my piece to a high standard.” At the beginning of the year the student decided to be open to opportunities and involve herself in things that would challenge her. “With this competition I was able to use any form of art I wanted, to convey certain themes and ideas... so I put in a proposal to compose a piece of choral music.” Lieutenant Commander Lissa Jackson of the Royal New Zealand Navy

Karori Youth Awards fast approaching By Sharnahea Wilson

The Karori Youth Awards are coming up and it’s not too late to enter nominations. The Karori Community Centre 2016 Youth Awards will recognise, reward and encourage young peoples service to the community. They will also recognise young peoples’ personal achievements. In all award categories, nominees are sought who are of good character.

There will be eight Youth Awards presented on the night to dedicated Karori residents. The categories are service to community, award for service to sport, service to the arts, academic improvement, courage and bravery, community organisations, contribution to young people and the Karori Community Centre Supreme Award. The key to the Supreme Award is the nominee has acted in an ambassadorial role promoting the community that they serve, encouraging more youth involvement and/ or vastly overcoming personal barriers and limitations. “Our Youth Awards are in

their 18th year of running,” Community and Youth Development Worker Christoph Zintl said. “This event reinforces positive youth development. It’s about celebrating youth participation, achievement and leadership in the community, with a Karori focus for us.” Individual nominees should be young people aged between 10 and 24 (except in the last two categories). The nominations for the first five categories are only open to youth who reside within the Karori community. Categories may be divided according to age and nominations will need to be in by September 12.

said they received many impressive submissions from schools across the country. “The quality of submissions was so good that we had to add a further finalist – inviting seven students to the next round of the competition.” The finalists, from years 10−13, have a chance to win big prizes including an Apple MacBook Air, DSLR camera, and contributions towards tertiary study, as well as prize money for their school. Final works from all seven finalists will be submitted by Friday, September 23 and the winner will be announced on Sunday, November 20 at a special ceremony, as part of the Navy’s International Naval Review.

Cathedral to hold lectures on contemporary issues The Wellington Cathedral of St Paul will host a lunchtime lecture series on important contemporary issues throughout the month of August. Entitled ‘Dangerous Conversations’, the series will focus on four of the critical challenges facing New Zealand – the housing crisis, low wages, gender inequality, and the limitations of traditional models of charity in meeting social needs. The Dean of Wellington, The Very Reverend Digby Wilkinson, said he was delighted the Cathedral could host this series. “New Zealand confronts many serious issues. In grappling with

these problems, we need places for informed discussion and reasoned debate – open forums where people are free to interrogate established approaches and advance new ideas – even dangerous ones. “In doing so it is imperative to reflect on the social and political implications of the Gospel.” One of the organisers of the lecture series, Dr Joe McGarry (a Chaplain at the Cathedral), highlighted the ideal setting of the Cathedral for civil engagement and community dialogue on the big issues of the day. “Our building resides in the heart of the capital, next door to Parliament and the Beehive. Moreover, it

is an open space where everyone is welcome - and people of different faiths and world views can reason together respectfully, honestly, yet passionately.” The four speakers contributing to the ‘Dangerous Conversations’ series are all ‘movers and shakers’ in their respective fields of expertise. The lectures will be held each Wednesday during August (except the last) from 12.30pm to 1.30pm.  There is no charge. All are welcome. Full information is available on the cathedral website - nz/dangerous-conversations/

Wine lovers invited to join Johnsonville’s cellar club Johnsonville’s Cellar Club is looking to extend its membership to those who are interested in wine. Club President Murray Jaspers said the Club, which was established in 1980, was not designed for “wine snobs”. Its objective is to allow members to learn about wines and wineries from people who work with and breathe wine – the winery owners, the winemakers or other winery

representatives. The club already has about 60 members but is looking to increase that number and invited locals to join one of the Club’s monthly meetings to find out what it was all about. At the monthly meeting in October the presenter will be Jane Hunter of Hunter Wines in Marlborough. Jane has a big international reputation so her presentation

will, no doubt, be of immense interest, Cellar Club committee member Richard Taylor said. “The monthly meetings are relaxed and friendly with plenty of opportunity to mix and mingle with other members.” The gatherings are held on the second Wednesday of each month in the Johnsonville Community Centre with a 7.45pm start time.

Programme for startups ready to Sprout

Sprout graduate Andrew Humphries from AgriTrack shows local farmers how to use his farm tracking service. PHOTO: Hamish Johnson

Sprout is calling on all paddock to plate start-ups from Wellington -who are ready to sprout-to take part in its programme. Sprout is scouting the Wellington region to find the next agritech superstar to take part in the second serving of its accelerator programme. It is searching for eight budding entrepreneurs with embryonic agritech businesses operating in the paddock to the plate space, and using technologies that improve yield, efficiency and profitability. Sprout Business Strategy Advisor Stu Bradbury said Sprout wanted to help entrepreneurs grow their start-ups from

great ideas into investmentready early stage companies. “We know that many early-stage entrepreneurs find it difficult to articulate their ideas and in turn gain support from customers, stakeholders and investors.” The chosen eight would receive a cash investment of $20,000 and be placed in a five month part-time and remotely delivered programme that would see them flown around the country for mentoring and training from world-class leaders in technology, research and business growth. The programme will culminate in an opportunity to pitch for investment to a handpicked group of potential investors, corporate

partners and potential customers. AgriTrack was one of the eight companies that participated in the 2015 programme and that pitched to a broad range of investors from Auckland to Otago. The company secured $550,000 of capital and is on track to grow sales by 80 per cent year on year, and has achieved a 100 per cent conversion rate from product trial to sales with Australian farmers this year.  Register to apply for the 2016/2017 Sprout programme by the end of September. See The programme will commence on October 6.

Excellent news for local coeliacs Wellington coeliacs can ditch the kitchen and dine out thanks to a new initiative. As part of Coeliac Awareness Week in May, Coeliac New Zealand launched the pilot for an accredited ‘Dining Out Programme’ which meant the 65,000 Kiwis who suffered from coeliac disease would be able enjoy a more inclusive social life and eat out safely. Hell Pizza, which has stores across the city including in Northland, Khandallah and Newlands, was one of the first restaurants to sign up to the pilot programme – and the only Quick Service Restaurant chain to date. General Manager Ben Cumming said it was a no-brainer to sign up for the accreditation programme. “We’ve been making pizza for 20 years, and we’ve always focussed on catering for customers with special dietary requirements, so joining the Dining Out Programme is another way to ensure that our pizzas are the best damned pizzas in this life or the next – for absolutely everyone.” Carl Sunderland, General Manager of Coeliac New Zea-

land, said restaurants and cafés that sign up to the programme would be able to provide an extra assurance that the glutenfree options on the menu really were gluten-free. “My Food Bag has also come on board and we’re hoping to have another 20 – 30 signed up by Christmas.” Carl wanted coeliacs, as well as their friends and family, to take this message to their favourite local eateries and urge them to sign up. “Our community of followers has been adamant that this is the one thing that would make a huge difference to their lives, and we’ve listened. Now we need their help to get local restaurants excited about joining the line-up.” The ‘Dining Out Programme’ recently won Fine Food New Zealand’s Innovation Award for ‘Most Innovative Food Service Product', and put New Zealand on the map in terms of catering to the needs of international gluten-free tourists.  To become an accredited business, go to www.coeliac. or email dop@

Student Friendly Wellington helps city thrive Green Party candidates have pledged their support for a student-friendly Wellington by getting on board with Victoria University’s Student’s Association ahead of the local elections. The Victoria University of Wellington Student’s Association launched their ‘Student Friendly Wellington’ campaign in early July to help students thrive in the city following the local elections. The campaign asked candidates for Wellington City Council and Greater Wellington Regional Council to make a pledge to improve two issues facing students living in the capital – the cost of student public transport fares and the state of flats in Wellington. Candidates would be asked to sign pledges for Fairer Fares and a Rental Warrant of Fitness and those who signed would be published online. Victoria University of Wellington’s student association president, Jonathan Gee said there

needed to be a “substantial change in Wellington” as many students were living below the poverty line. “We’re calling on council candidates to commit to student-friendly policies in the September local body elections,” he said. “Students pay thousands of dollars on education and help the sector contribute $2 billion to the Wellington economy. Yet, the majority of us can’t afford the bus to get to class and live in cold, damp, mouldy flats.” Green Party candidates for the Wellington City Council and Greater Wellington Regional Council were among those who have signed the pledge. Regional council candidate Paul Bruce signed at the end of July. “Last time the Regional Council considered a Green Party proposal for student bus discounts it lost by just one vote, so this year we have a real chance to make sure more student-friendly councillors get elected,” he said.

Karate Kid keen for world comp By Sharnahea Wilson

Local school gets silver visit By Emma McAuliffe

Local students got excited about the upcoming games when they received an inspirational talk from an Olympic medalist this week. Olympic silver medalist in BMX, Sarah Walker, visited Bellevue School in Newlands on Tuesday morning to talk about being an Olympian and setting goals for the future. Walker told the group she had always wanted to be an Olympian but she was not too sure which sport she wanted to take part in. “To be an Olympian you’ve got to be good at sport. I tried everything, even rugby. But I’m really bad at rugby,” she said. Walker said she had first started BMX riding when she was 10 years old after becoming bored of watching her younger brother on the track.

You must be a self starter who can organise your work routines without close supervision. Personal Experience with a strong commitment to student exchange programs would be highly regarded.

View the Independent Herald Online:

She said the two were in constant competition with each other as they grew older and faster. “As we got faster the jumps got bigger, now we jump jumps 12 metres long,” Walker said. Walker said setting goals was important to her on her Olympic journey. “My first goal for my first Olympics [in 2008] was to go to the Olympics. My goal for my second Olympics was to win a Gold medal– so I set my goal really high.” Walker walked away from her second Olympics, in London in 2012, with a silver medal. She told the students it was important for them to set goals too and to be proud when they accomplished them. “If you think of something you’re proud of you feel happier,” she said. “One bit of homework for you tonight is to say something you are proud of.”



A young Karate Kid is fundraising to head to the Karate World Championships in Australia next year. Nine-year-old Brianna Higgan of Churton Park was the youngest in Australia and New Zealand to have a second kyu brown belt. Brianna has been doing karate for nearly four years and in that time has collected over 19 medals from regional and national competitions. “My brother did karate and I went to a few classes to watch him then I wanted to join,” Brianna said. Brianna typically trains three times per week with Go-Kan-Ryu Karate in Johnsonville, Tawa and Whitby. The skilled youngster said she owed her success to her sensei’s Josh Saunders and Diane Palevic who had been with her from the start. Because she has moved up so quickly Brianna often has to face girls older than her. “The sensei’s say she is a real inspiration to younger students coming in,” proud mother Janette said.

Brianna will now focus on taking out the top spot at the nationals in October and will continue to work toward becoming a first kyu brown belt.

Waterside wait for big win The champagne went back on the ice for Waterside-Karori on Sunday when they missed their first chance at securing the Capital Premier football title after a punishing 1-6 away loss to Western Suburbs. A win would have locked up the title but instead Wharfies, who have been in championship winning form all season, will need to regroup and win one of their final two games. After their weekend win, Wests have closed to within four points of Wharfies and are likely to win their final two matches so the pressure is now back on the league favourites to bring home the title. The problem for Wharfies is it doesn’t get any easier this week when they meet inform third placed team Island Bay. The Bay side are coming off a 4-0 win over Miramar and the week before they beat Wellington Olympic 3-0 so Wharfies will need to be at their best in front of

their home crowd at Karori Park on Saturday. Wests will meet Tawa at Endeavour Park on Sunday. Meanwhile the focus returns to the Chatham Cup for North Wellington’s Premier side when they travel to Auckland for their quarter-final clash with highly fancied rivals Three Kings United. North Wellington have already equalled their best ever run in the Cup by reaching this stage and with such a young squad a win would be another upset. Three Kings were finalists in 2009 and are in top form heading into this clash. However, so far Norths have defied all of the predictions and they will be hard to topple again despite the travel to Auckland and top class opposition. North Wellington head into the Cup match in good form, having beaten Brooklyn Northern United 2-0 in very testing conditions on Saturday.

Rumblings of Rio The Olympics are almost here and yet I'm struggling to get enthused. Part of that is because London four years ago was an easy sell for New Zealand which has obvious historical links. The Brazilian capital is a little harder to get motivated about. Another issue has been the bungled buildup. The Athletes Village is not up to scratch and Russia's drug issues will taint the games. The IOC's lack of action suggests television ratings and money is more highly valued than clean athletic competition.

The much bemoaned Sky TV has the coverage rights and they are advertising 12 channels of coverage. That's impressive and is far better than the single channel coverage we used to get. Realistically, New Zealand could earn as many medals as their record six gold, two silver and five bronze from four years ago. Rowing will be our best bet as it usually is. I'm sure when it starts, the Olympics will be captivating but I don't expect the overall experience to be better than London.
