Staff from schools around Wainuiomata banded together last week to have their say on better funding in the classroom. The Better Funding Roadshow hit Wainuiomata last Tuesday as an opportunity for people to have their say on the government’s proposed changes to the ways schools are funded. The roadshow was hosted by New Zealand Educational Institute Te Riu (NZEI) and the New Zealand Post Primary Teachers Association (PPTA). Continued on page 2.

last Tuesday morning and parents talked to teachers about the proposed changes to funding education, including the global budget, and why children’s education needed more investment. The Government’s freeze on the school operations grant, which funds support staff

of the schools in Wainuiomata visited by the roadshow. Board of Trustees member at the school, Katrina Barclay, said the roadshow was a good opportunity for staff and parents to talk with union representatives. “We don’t like the global funding model the government has. We don’t want it to create competition between teachers when they should be working for the kids. “It’s bulk funding in disguise and it adds more unnecessary pressure on boards to make difficult decisions around funding,” she said. Arakura School principal, Mark Kibblewhite took a similar view. “The whole concept I suppose is the effect it could have on our school. [There could be] more children in classes. It’s one of the worst things that could happen. “You could decide to have less teachers and use the funds for more teacher aides which would lead to larger class sizes or you could do the opposite. It puts more pressure on the boards to have to decide these things,” he said.  For more information head to www.betterfunding.org.nz/

Mental health week shines light on well-being

Wellington Suburban Newspapers Ltd Les & Katrina Whiteside

By Emma McAuliffe

Locals had the chance to recognise the importance of mental health last week through a regular awareness campaign. Mental Health Awareness Week was celebrated last week from Monday, October 10 until Sunday, October 16 as a chance to educate and celebrate mental health and well-being. The theme for this year was connecting with nature and

health. “A majority of mental illnesses can be found in a session with a GP. From there we come up with and provide a plan of action,” she said. Dr Glenn said depression was one of the most common mental illnesses the health centre would see regularly with anxiety a close second. “Signs of depression include difficulty sleeping, eating more or less, more tearful and irritable. A big clincher would be not being able to see the

joy in things that would have previously made someone happy. “Anxiety could be seen as a shortness of breath which could last for five to ten minutes. “A visit to the GP is the gateway to further treatment so I recommend seeing us. If you need to bring a support person you can do that,” she said.  For more information head to www.mentalhealth.org. nz/

how this could help mental health. Mental Health Awareness Week also gave opportunity for locals to discover what services were available to them in their community and how to recognise potential symptoms in themselves.

Local to run for Hutt South seat By Emma McAuliffe

A local councillor has thrown his hat into the ring in a bid to contest for the Hutt South Seat in next year’s general elections. Hutt City Councillor for the Wainuiomata Ward, Campbell Barry, has put his name forward to be nominated for the Hutt South candidacy. Nominations for candidacy closed last Monday. Also in the running for the seat are Silverstream resident, Virginia Anderson and Sarah Packer from Upper Hutt. Mr Barry said he was interested in standing because people had asked him if he would and he believed “only a local” would win Hutt South for Labour in 2017. “The big reason I am standing is because we need someone who is local. Being the representative for Hutt South is all about dealing with local constituents,” he said.

Mr Barry said he recognised the timing was not perfect, having just been re-elected to the Hutt City Council on Saturday, October 8. “I always wanted a minimum of two terms on Hutt City Council to achieve what I wanted to [however], I’m confident if I become an MP I could do the things I want to for the Hutt,” he said. Mr Barry said he waited until he knew the local body election results to put his nomination in within a few hours of its closing. “It’s always been in the back of my mind [since current MP Trevor Mallard decided not to run but I] put it on the back burner until after local body elections,” he said. “One thing we’ve had with Trevor is someone who has 100 per cent backed Wainuiomata. People won’t want to lose that,” he said. The successful candidate will be revealed at the end of the month.

Rural festival to hit town By Emma McAuliffe

Queen Street Reserve will reflect the days of rural life gone by at Wainuiomata’s first Rural Fest next month. The event has been organised by a steering group made up of representatives from the Wainuiomata Rural Association, Community Hub, Country Women’s Institute, as well as rural and urban residents.

Steering group member Michelle Caldwell said the day was organised to celebrate the three rural areas of Wainuiomata, Upper Fitzherbert Road, Moores Valley and Coast Road, and the rural history of New Zealand. “We wanted to bring the Wainuiomata urban and rural communities together for a rural-themed day of fun and to foster a greater knowledge of the Wainuiomata rural

environment,” she said. This would include a baking competition for adults and children, a high tea and games and music as well as a petting zoo. Games would include “oldfashioned” egg and spoon races, three legged races and hay bale throwing and rolling. There would also be a tug of war for locals to compete against each other in.

3

Making it happen

Michelle said it was hoped the event would become an annual festival, eventually taking place in a country location so more rural activities could take place. “Ideally we’d like to have the chance to feature show jumping and cow milking,” she said.  Rural Fest will take place on Saturday, November 19, at the Queen Street Reserve.

Second play date of the year takes place By Emma McAuliffe

Children and adults gathered at the Wainuiomata Community Centre last week to play and discover the early childhood education available locally. The play date, hosted by WaiPESI, invited early childhood centres and groups from around Wainuiomata to take part as well as families who may not be involved in early childhood education. Representative tables included the Wainuiomata Library, Plunket, and the Ministry of Education. One stall holder said she enjoyed coming to the play dates as it was a good chance to speak to other agencies around the valley. “It’s nice to see so many different agencies working together here,” she

said. Three schools from Wainuiomata also attended last Wednesday’s event for the first time. WaiPESI’s Louana Freuan, said this change was “different” however, not unwelcome. “I think schools are beginning to look at their enrolments,” she said. WaiPESI, Wainuiomata Pacific Education Success Initiative, is a Wainuiomata group passionate about education in all ages ranging from before school to tertiary studies and beyond. The group hosts two playdates for under five’s a year.  For more information about WaiPESI head to www.facebook. com/waipesi

Long-time campaigner dies A public service for a long time workers’ rights activist will be held in Wellington next week. Ex- trade union boss Helen Kelly died last Friday following a long battle with cancer. A public service for her memorial will be held on Friday, October 28 at the Michael Fowler Centre in Wellington at 1pm. Mayor of Wellington, Justin Lester, said the service had been organised by Council of Trade Unions and Wellington City Council following consultation with Helen Kelly’s family. “Helen Kelly was an outstanding woman. She always fought on behalf of people who needed a voice, was hugely principled, always put other people’s interests ahead of her own and never compromised on her convictions,” he said.

Get Ready Week a chance to prepare Locals are being encouraged to ensure they are prepared for emergencies. Get Ready Week was held for the first time last week by the Ministry of Civil Defence and Emergency Management to help Kiwi families ensure they are prepared. The theme for this year’s week was ‘Prepared Kids’ and as part of this a new teaching resource was developed by the Ministry of Civil Defence and Emergency Management and the Earthquake Commission. Director of the Ministry of Civil Defence and Emergency Management, Sarah StuartBlack, said the Ministry and EQC had redeveloped and modernised ‘What’s the Plan Stan’, the well-known guide for teaching emergency preparedness in

primary classrooms. “As well as encouraging schools to use What’s the Plan, Stan? to update their emergency preparedness plans and build resilience as a life skill in students, we are encouraging families to talk about what they would do in an emergency,” Sarah said. Sarah said Get Ready Week was a great opportunity for families to take the time to be more prepared at home and at work. She suggested four different ways families could prepare for emergencies. “Talk to your kids in an honest, but not scary, way about what might happen in an emergency, what you can do to keep safe, and what your plan is for if you can’t get home. The more involved they are, the less scared

they will be if an emergency does happen. “Make a list of the people who could help you and those who might need your help in an emergency, write their numbers down in case. “Contact your school or daycare and find out what their emergency plans are. Where will they go if they are evacuated? Who will look after the kids until you get there? Give the school or day care a list of three people who can pick the kids up if you can’t get there. “Make a list of supplies you might need at home and in your car – have a getaway bag for everyone, with warm clothes, snack food, water, ID, radio, torch and batteries.  Visit www.happens.nz for more information.

Safety awards nominations now open By Emma McAuliffe

Locals are being encouraged to nominate those who look out for the safety of others for a city wide award. Nominations for the Hutt Safe City Awards are now open. The awards, which have been running since 2006, celebrate the work of those in Lower Hutt working in crime prevention and community safety. Hutt City safety manager, Jimmy Ballantyne, said there were three categories of awards handed out at the ceremony, two of which could be nominated for by members of the community. “There is a category for a not for profit individual working in crime prevention and safety and one for a not for profit group doing the same thing,” he said. There would also be an Area Com-

Wednesday October 19, 2016

Hi there. My name is Emma and I am the journalist for the Wainuiomata News. Welcome to Wainuiomata, home of grass roots rugby league. The community has been busy planning for the Maori Rugby League tournament for several months and is looking forward to showing everyone what’s on this side of the hill. Wainuiomata is a great community with plenty on offer for those who love the outdoors, with mountain bike trails, walking tracks and Rimutaka Forest Park right on our doorstep. Make sure you stop by our recently revamped town centre for a walk around and appreciate the spirit here in the valley.

Venue Map

Having the NZ Maori Rugby League National Tuakana tournament placed on Wise Park this year has gifted our club a wonderful opportunity to co-host one of the biggest sporting events to enter the Hutt Valley - Wellington region. Given the Wainuiomata Lions proud history in the sport of rugby league it almost seems appropriate that the tournament is being held here and we will be doing everything possible to ensure it is one families and visitors will remember. The tournament sees 30 teams from around the country descend into the valley to compete in the Rohe, Waka and Wahine Toa divisions. The competition will be tough and spectators and supporters will be in for a treat with some fierce haka performances and brutal rugby league skills on display as teams battle it out for the number one spot. Along side all this will be market stalls, a wide range of cuisines, music and entertainment as well as fun and games for the kids so something for everyone. The Wainuiomata Lions would like to welcome all the teams and visitors to our beautiful valley. We wish you all the best for the tournament and hope you enjoy your stay. Go the Pukeatua Lions!!!!! Simon Itula Wainuiomata Lions Rugby League spokesperson

Message from Mayor Ray Wallace

Kia ora We are so pleased to be hosting the NZ Maori League National Tuakana Tournament in Wainuiomata, Lower Hutt. Wainuiomata has a strong and proud history in league. This tournament has a lot of respect and mana in our community and you are all very welcome here. Our Council is a supporter of this tournament, which is an inclusive and inspiring community event. I give my congratulations to all the teams of players, coaches and supporters for the hard work and talent that has brought you here to represent. My thanks to everyone who has put in the hard work and dedication needed to organise this event and bring it to Wainuiomata. Enjoy!

Karl Tauri Kaumatua of Maori Rugby League Te Awa Kairangi

Message from John Devonshire, President NZ Maori Rugby League

Ray Wallace Mayor – Lower Hutt

Te Awa Kairangi

Te Aroha

Tena Koutou Katoa, Our 24th jubilee year, the scene is set as we flock together for the honor of representing our people and whanau with one goal - winning. The real wins are carved in history, many stories passed down, many players gone on to represent their country and regions and some even fortunate enough to play in the NRL. We pay homage to rangatira lost: Hare Keepa, Eddie Hei Hei, Tane Downs, Rawiri Mariu and Bob Taire. We salute the 4 roopu from Wellington - Awa, Te Whanganui-a-tara, Te Aroha and Pukeatua. Together we expose many Maori, believing a door will open and one life will change. We applaud the volunteers and wish all the very best. We acknowledge Tangata Whenua, Te Atiawa, and NZMRL. We also applaud Wainuiomata rugby league and the whole of the community. A special mention to my a wahine toa, this year is for you HAPPY BIRTHDAY... May the battles begin.

New Zealand Maori Rugby League (NZMRL) is extremely proud and excited to hold the 24th Annual National Tuakana Tournament in the Wellington region. Robert Tairi, NZMRL tournament founder and life-member, started this kaupapa back in 1993 at Sea view, Eastbourne, so to be just over the hill from our venue of origin is tremendous. Wainuiomata has a huge history in rugby league and it’s great that the community there will get to host more than 30 Maori rugby league teams from around the country. This year’s event is being hosted in collaboration with local Maori rugby league groups: Te Aroha, Awa Kairangi, Te Whanganui a Tara and Pukeatua. We look forward to seeing the Wainui community out in force supporting the local talent and sharing in this kaupapa. John Devonshire (JD) NZMRL - Chairman

Doctors strike at Hutt Hospital Locals will be affected by strikes happening this week at Hutt Hospital. Junior doctors who are members of the New Zealand Resident Doctors’ Association have withdrawn their services from DHBs around the country for 48 hours between 7am on Tuesday, October 18 and 7am on Thursday, October 20, said Hutt Valley District Health Board chief operating officer Dale Oliff. All hospital services will be reduced during this time. The Emergency Department will still be open but only for emergencies, she said. “Unless it’s an emergency, people should contact their GP or after-hours medical centre. This will help ensure our ED staff remain free to help those who need it the most,” Dale said. Dale said Hutt Valley DHB was experi-

Resources Trust last week during a regular meeting. The Hutt Valley Disabled Resources Trust was set up in 1981 operating a sheltered workshop for intellectually disabled people. It has since begun to provide a more holistic range of services to people with intellectual disabilities in the Hutt Valley as well as those with sensory and physical disabilities. Gabriel said he accepted the appointment after “much consideration” for three reasons. “Firstly it provides great services to the intellectually, sensory and physically disabled. Secondly, it promotes and provides staff with the living wage and thirdly it works in conjunction with Sport Wainuiomata in the TriAbility TRYathlon,” he said. He said he was asked to join the board as they wanted a broader outreach, specifically to Maori and Pasifika people and youth. Gabriel said he would take his oath of office in December and would remain on the board through the next triennium. “There is a gap in my knowledge on disabilities and I’m open to learning about their achievements and their struggles. I’m hoping it’ll make me more empathetic. I look forward to learning and growing in that area,” he said.

Christmas is coming

Wainuiomata residents and Woburn Home day programme attendees, Leslie Solomon, Dulcie Langridge and Jim Manu, think the home’s music collection could do with an update.

Enliven the music say elders

Participants in last year’s Christmas Parade wave to the crowd. By Emma McAuliffe

It’s time to prepare the sleighs - Wainuiomata’s annual Christmas Parade will be hitting town soon. Registrations for floats in the Wainuiomata Christmas Parade opened this week for families, businesses and community groups to get involved. The Christmas Parade, which will be taking place on Saturday, December 3, has a new route this year and will no longer be beginning at Burden Ave. Committee member for the Wainuiomata Christmas Parade, Campbell Barry, said the group wanted a change from previous years. “The new route will go from Waiu Street to Wainuiomata Road, down Queen Street,

down Fitzherbert Road and then down The Strand. “We decided we wanted to bring the parade to a different part of Wainui. We thought it would make a nice change as it’s something different,” he said. Mr Barry said families were being encouraged to give the parade a go this year and create floats out of family vehicles. A Facebook event encouraging neighbours, friends, clubs and businesses to nominate each other in a challenge to create the best floats had been set up. “We’re encouraging anyone to give it a go and if they need a hand with anything to get in touch,” Mr Barry said.  For more information visit the Wainuiomata Christmas Parade Facebook group.

Times are changing, and so are the music tastes of New Zealand’s elders. That’s from Enliven’s Woburn Home recreation officer Fiona Leesburg, who is looking for donations of CDs so the home can better cater to diverse music tastes. “The residents here tend to be into more modern music now. When we asked them what music they wanted to hear more of we got an interesting response – it’s not what you’d expect!” Fiona explains. “Queen, Rod Stewart, Abba, some enjoy hip hop – they get their tastes in music from their past and also from what their family listens to today. Many of these people are in their 80s and 90s!” Enliven’s Woburn Home is asking the community for donations of CDs with music from the 50s until today. “We’ve started doing our exercise programme to more modern, upbeat music and it has started resembling a dance off because of it!” says Fiona. “They get up and dance and they absolutely love it. It’s the kind of music that makes you tap your feet, sing along and get up and dance if you can.” Woburn Home recreation officer Chrissie Edwards says other than bringing joy, music also has the power to spark memories and conversation among elders – even those with memory loss. “Everyone enjoys music - the beat is often

enough to uplift you. They all talk about the music we put on and the memories it brings back for them,” says Chrissie. “One resident here struggles to have a conversation with you because of her memory loss, but put on some music she likes and she knows all the words.” Wainuiomata resident Dulcie Langridge attends Woburn Home’s day programme and says she enjoys it when the home plays country western music the most. “When I listen to country western music it takes me back. I have so many good memories,” says Dulcie. Fellow day programme attendee and Wainuiomata resident Leslie Soloman enjoys the spontaneous singing at Woburn Home. “I like a good sing along. To be able to have a sing along with everyone is very enjoyable,” says Leslie. “Music is an outlet for emotions – you can relate to it.” Woburn Home is operated by Enliven, part of the not-for-profit organisation Presbyterian Support Central, and provides a full spectrum of aged care including rest home, hospital and dementia care as well as respite and a day activity programme for elders living in the community.  For more information about Woburn Home, located at 57 Wai-iti Crescent in Lower Hutt, or to make a donation of CDs, contact the home on 04 569 6400 or visit www.enlivencentral. org.nz.

Local to give Lucho Libre a try By Emma McAuliffe

A local man will be trying his luck at wrestling internationally in Mexico later this year. Paul Sayers will be heading to Mexico in December to try his hand at Lucho Libre wrestling. He said it had always been a dream of his to wrestle internationally. “Going international has always been a dream for me but I wasn’t sure which style I would have liked to try it in. Mexico is the home of Lucho Libre wrestling which is a style of wrestling I’d be keen to try,” he said. Paul said a friend of his was currently in Mexico and would be one of the only New Zealanders competing in Lucho Libre wrestling. Paul said he was currently fundraising for the trip through the website, ‘Givealittle’.

“The Givealittle page will help me with the everyday stuff, like food, while I’m in Mexico. A big chunk of it will go towards the training in Lucho Libre,” he said. Paul said he aimed to be in Mexico for two months but this could be longer should he get a working visa through a wrestling company. “I’m hoping that being a tattooed New Zealander will give me an edge,” Paul said. He said he would be going to Mexico following the ‘On the Mat’ tournament in November. Paul said although he had earlier tried to gain a match against American wrestler RJ Brewer, at the tournament he would instead be wrestling against a Japanese legend.  Locals can help Paul fundraise for Mexico by heading to www.givealittle. co.nz/cause/paulinmexico

Time to see the All Whites prosper

Finals for high school league team By Emma McAuliffe

Wainuiomata High School’s senior rugby league team may be playing in their final following a successful game against St Patrick’s College Silverstream. The game was played at the rugby league grounds at Frederick Wise Park last Thursday afternoon.

Wainuiomata won against St Patrick’s 30-22, and were up 26-4 at half time. They will now be playing against St Bernard’s College on Thursday, October 20 at Wainuiomata High School the last round before the Stephen Kearney Cup final. Kickoff is at 4.30pm. Locals are encouraged to sup-

port the team in their bid for getting into the final and getting the cup. Wainuiomata High School’s Under 15 team won by default against Upper Hutt College last week. The game would have been their last round in the Jonny Lomax Cup.

New Zealand’s 1-1 draw with the United States of America in their international football friendly on Wednesday (NZ time) is a sign of progress. USA are ranked 22nd in the world while the All Whites are ranked 88th. It’s a good sign after New Zealand Football failed (yet again) to capitalise on the buzz generated by the national side making the FIFA World Cup in 2010. Since coach Anthony Hudson took over the team in 2014 they have played just 12 games, most of them away from home. 35-year-old Hudson has an unenviable task on his hands to bring together players from all over the world and get them to play cohesive football together on short notice. The team needs more matches, more exposure and more goodwill. The Wellington Phoenix has a much higher profile than the national team and I don’t know why players would aspire to play for a national team that rarely plays. Those within New Zealand Football have just rebooted the national league and increased its teams to 10. It’s a step in the right direction but the organisation needs to keep the momentum going. In 1982 and 2010, they didn’t do enough to maximise their exposure. The game has excellent numbers at junior levels but it’s giving the young players a pathway and a national team worth aspiring to play for that’s most important. The All Whites will never be world beaters but they should be given all the opportunities to be the best they can be. Let this result against the USA be a starting point.

Calling all touch players A local group will be hosting a touch competition in the warmer months. Wainuiomata Sportsville are calling for registrations for the Wainuiomata touch competition and family tournament to be held over the next two months.

The group decided to do this following interest from the community. Sportsville are for calling registrations from teams of Under 12 boys, Under 12 mixed and a social open mixed grade. Mixed grade teams must

have a minimum of two female players on the field at all times. Social grade players must have at least one player over the age of 40 and one under the age of 12. The season will begin on Wednesday, October 26 with all

games to be played at Frederick Wise Park. It will end on Wednesday, December 7 with a family tournament. Featured in this team must be a family member who had not been registered for the season.

 Registrations for the competition end this Friday, October 21 and can be can be made at www.sporty. co.nz/wainuiomatatouch. Costs are $150 for the under 12 grades and $200 for the social grade. For more information contact Penny H argraves at wainuio matasportsville@gmail.com

Rugby stars visiting old school prizegiving By Joanne Holden MASSEY JOURNALISM STUDENT

Two local rugby stars will be special guests at the sports prizegiving for their old high school. Peter Umaga-Jensen of the Wellington Lions and Henry Stowers of the Bay of Plenty Steamers will be taking part in a couch interview during Wainuiomata High School’s sports prizegiving on October 27. “It’s good to see the boys again and see them home,” sports coordinator Peter Cowan said. “The kids respond to ex-students coming in and telling their life story,” Cowan said. Umaga-Jensen will be presenting the Fair Play award and Contribution to Sport award, while Stowers will give out the Athlete with a Disability award and Sports Coordinators

Cup. Another award to be given out at the ceremony will be the Community Service Award, which will be renamed this year to the Dave Skipper Community Service Award in honour of a support staff member who died in April this year. Dave worked at the Rangitahi Learning Centre. “I think it’s a great tribute, and an honour for us to name it after him,” Cowan said. Ignite Sport, who offer leadership courses at the school, will be presenting their own awards – celebrating an athlete and a coach with strong character and values – at the ceremony. Awards for individual sports such as Volleyball, Futsal, and Rugby will be given out as well.

Local girl top at awards By Emma McAuliffe

A local girl has been named top forward following a successful season on the field. Hope Sa’u received the award of ‘Most Valuable Forward’ at the Wellington Under 18 representative team prizegiving held in Wellington last Saturday night. Hope said she was “shocked” to have won the prize and considered working hard to be the reason for her success in rugby. “I guess if you work hard you get

the results. Just work hard because the best is yet to come,” she said. Hope, who also played rugby for Wainuiomata High School and Wainuiomata Womens said her regular positions included playing backs and playing hooker. She was selected for the Under 18 representative squad with classmate Precious Auimatagi, earlier this year.  For more information on Wainuiomata High School and its sporting successes head to the Wainuiomata High School Rugby Facebook page.

Top players nominated for prizes By Emma McAuliffe

Local rugby players have a lot to celebrate following several nominations for top prizes at the Wellington Rugby Awards. Three of the Wainuiomata club’s top players and one top team have been nominated for awards. Peter Umaga-Jensen has been nominated for Most Promising Player of the Year and both Jackie Patea and Acacia Te Iwimate have been nominated for Women’s Player of the Year. Wainuiomata Womens has been nominated for Club Team of the Year. Wellington Rugby Football Union head of community rugby, Will CacciaBirch, said nominations for the awards across the board had been of the “highest quality”.

“That Wainuiomata have featured strongly is no surprise. Wainui have a long history of producing some of Wellington rugby’s most outstanding young talent in the men’s game and notably in recent times they have been at the forefront of the growth of the women’s game,” he said. Will said he was impressed by the talent of the local players and their successes. “It’s fantastic to see the club’s contribution this season recognised with the nomination of Acacia Te Iwimate and Jackie Patea for the Wellington Women’s Player of the Year award and Peter Umaga-Jensen for the Most Promising Player award,” he said.  The Wellington Rugby Awards will take place on Saturday, October 29.
