Students to give presents Continued from page 1 Wainuiomata High School will be giving over 40 shoeboxes this year, which will include one from each Manaaki (form) class as well as one from the Rangatahi Learning Centre and the school’s trade’s academy. Rutherford House Dean, Sarah O’Neill, said she had come up with the idea after seeing it appear on Facebook and thought she would give it a go. “I mentioned it to our captains who said they would like to do it too. It grew from there,” she said. Rutherford House Captain, year 13 student Eddie Trask said the school believed they were the only complete High School to be taking part in the project. “We were really excited to jump on board. It’s been pretty exciting going out and buying kids toys,” he said. “It’s cool that we’re giving to younger kids,” Rutherford House fellow Captain, Freesia Tuita added. Sarah said the students in their classes had been doing research to find out more about the schools and the children they would be giving to. “They discovered that a few of the children receiving gifts would go to a similar decile school and have a similar background and some of our own students,” she said. “We know the struggles. But you don’t have to have much to give much,” year 12 student Aviata Sa’u said. They said they hoped other schools would follow their lead and help out more next year. “For us it’s about showing our school values,” year 12 student Alex Faifailoa said. “Hopefully other schools see what we are doing and jump on board,” Apiata House Captain Aso Muaiava said.  For more information on the Wellington Shoebox Christmas Project head to www.shoeboxchristmas.

Artist based work on time on the coast An overseas artist has created an exhibition based on her time at the Wainuiomata coast. Josette Chiang’s multimedia installation Coastline Paradox, which opened last Friday, was the result of a three-month Wellington residency which saw her discover the history of Turakirae head. Featuring video, sculpture, sound and text, Coastline Paradox explores 7000 years of tectonic uplifts at the Turakirae Head Scientific Reserve,

20 kilometres south of Wainuiomata, at the end of the Coast Road. The area has been a reserve since the 1970s and Josette worked her way through 100 years’ worth of written material and scientific reports during the course of her residency. Josette said Coastline Paradox was formed as part of an on-going investigation of coastlines beginning in Hong Kong. “I became curious about

coastal geography. It reminds me of the finitude of land and also that the coastline is where people, earth and water meet. I was thinking about the coastline as a navigational tool, territorial boundary, and representing nationhood and international exchange.” “I’ve been learning how important the coast is to New Zealand identity,” she said. “For me as an artist working here, it’s such rich territory, the coast is the subject of live

debate – both culturally and environmentally. I find I’ve become environmentally aware, almost by default.”  Coastline Paradox will be running until Saturday, November 12 at the Toi Poneke Arts Centre, 61-69 Abel Smith Street, Wellington. There will be an artist talk on Saturday, October 29 at 1pm. For more information head to the Toi Poneke Arts Centre Facebook page.

Charity gig to help city’s homeless planned By Emma McAuliffe

A local group has come together to organise an event for charities across Wellington. Local man Robert Morgan front man of local rock band Burning Embers and CEO of non-profit organisation Burning Embers Inc a has organised for a Hutt City Charity Rockfest to take place at the Petone Rugby Club on Saturday, December 3. Proceeds from the rockfest, which will showcase 20 bands from around New Zealand, will go towards the Wellington City Mission and the Suzanne Aubert Compassion Centre. These charities were chosen for the work they did in helping the homeless and disadvantaged across Wellington, he said. Rob said the bands would range from easy listening to rock as the event, which would start at 2pm progressed. “They’re mostly unsigned indie artists who would love to jump at the opportunity,” he said.

We are a collective of people who have experienced hardship and have healed from their wounds and we believe music is a healer,” he said.

Robert said the group was currently looking for the support of locals and businesses to help the event benefit the two charities as much as possible. “We’re not funded at the moment- we’re just friends and volunteers pulling together. “We’d love to get some funding in gifts and monetary gifts which will go towards the chari-

Church relocated as part of earthquake strengthening work A local church was turned around last week as part of earthquake strengthening work. St Patrick’s Church on the corner of Main Road and Stanley Street was moved between Wednesday and Friday last week. The Church was in its previous location since 1954 and now faces Stanley Street instead of Main Road. Locals took to social media to express their surprise at the move calling it “quite impressive”.

Member of St Patrick’s Parish Dale Imray told Wainuiomata News earlier in the year the decision to turn the Church around was made as the structure needed to be earthquake strengthened and it would be a cheaper option than to build a new church. The now open land at the St Patrick’s site would make way for a car park and an extension of the church, he said. St Patrick’s has been closed for mass since August. Catholic masses are currently held at the Holy Trinity Church.

Playground under construction By Emma McAuliffe

A much loved local playground is getting a refurbish in time for the summer. Construction on the under-fives section at Parkway Playground is currently underway and is set to be finished by Christmas. A Hutt City Council spokesman said there would be many new features at the playground including new swings. “It will also retain other features, including the tractor which will be refurbished,” he said. Hutt City Councillor for the Wainuiomata Ward Campbell Barry and councillor elect Josh Briggs said it was great to see the construction finally happening after their campaign earlier in the year to get it fixed. “This will be ready for kids in our com-

munity to use over the summer months in the lead up to Christmas,” Mr Barry said. “I’m feeling really positive that the upgrade and the maintenance is now taking place as it’s been long overdue. I’m looking forward to the community’s ideas coming to life following the consultation process,” Mr Briggs said. Mr Barry said he wished to see other playgrounds in the valley maintained further as well. “We have a number of other playgrounds in our community in a pretty sad state. We need to make sure we are looking after our playgrounds,” he said. He said he would look to request a review with the Hutt City Council of the state of all playgrounds across Lower Hutt in the future.

Children from Wainuiomata Playcentre enjoy some colouring at the Wainuiomata Library. By Emma McAuliffe

Members of Wainuiomata Playcentre were out last week raising awareness of their upcoming birthday. The Wainuiomata Playcentre will be celebrating its 60th birthday on Saturday, November 19 at its location at Fernlea School. Wainuiomata Playcentre’s Mel Sagaga said the playcentre had lots of things planned for their big birthday celebration. “We’re going to have a tree planting ceremony and cutting

of the cake. There’ll be lots of stuff for children to do. “We’ve got lots of ex-members coming out for it. People can come look around. It’ll be just a fun day of celebration,” she said. The group was out on Friday putting up posters around Queen Street and the Wainuiomata Shopping Centre. With them were some of the parents who were involved with the playcentre with their children. They said they enjoyed going to playcentre as it helped the children learn to interact

with others and they gained support from other parents. “I love playcentre. It’s been really helpful as a new parent and really supportive,” Sandra Rayen said. “Playcentre is parent led, it’s very affordable for families and its parents supporting parents. Parents learn alongside their children- whanau tupu ngatahi,” Wainuiomata Playcentre president Jacob Topp said.  For more information on the Wainuiomata Playcentre call 364 3140

A local girl will be headed to America for a five week exchange next year. Wainuiomata High School student Kacie Jones will be going to Tempe, Arizona next July as part of the Hutt Sister City Foundation exchange. The exchange would see four students from Lower Hutt host an exchange student from Lower Hutt’s sister city Tempe for five weeks then travel to Tempe for the same amount of time. Kacie is the only student from Wainuiomata High School to be going on the exchange in 2017. She will be joined by a student from Taita College, Sacred Heart College and Hutt Valley High School. Kacie said she found out she would be going on the exchange a fortnight ago. “I’m really excited. I still can’t believe I’m going,” she said. “I just think it’s going to be a really great experience. I’m quite

shy and I thought it might be a good experience to get out of my shell,” she said. Kacie said she was looking forward to finding out who her exchange student would be. “We don’t find out our exchange students until March next year. I can’t wait to find out who mine will be,” she said. Kacie said she had spoken to her fellow students, Ariana Randall and Krishna McQueen who went on the exchange this year about the activities and events she would be taking part in. “Ariana and Krishna said it would be a great opportunity for me to go. We’ll be doing the same things they did when they were in Tempe this year like camping at the Grand Canyon and going to Disneyland. I want to research some more about some more of the things I would like to do,” she said. Kacie said she and her fellow travellers had already started fundraising for the trip which would cost them between $12,000 and $15,000 collectively.

Ms Devoy spoke to the group about her history as a world champion squash player, her work with charity and her current role as race relations commissioner for the Human Rights Commission. Ms Devoy said she was asked frequently what it meant to be a world champion and how others could follow in her footsteps. “I say look not everyone can be a world champion. We can all be champions in our own grade at our own sense and our own level. Many people I know who haven’t been world champions but are champion people,” she said. Ms Devoy encouraged the

Halloween house set to be bigger and better By Emma McAuliffe

A local house will be getting spooky again this year in time for Halloween. Terrifying Totara will be running on Halloween this year for the fifth year in a row. Homeowners Michelle and Goober Smith said the decorations house would be “bigger and better” this year as they had added to their collection. “We started off with three tombstones and then it built up every year. We’ve got a few different things this year. On the actual day it will be amazing,” Michelle said.

This would include famous horror movie characters and places for people to take selfies, as well as a few surprises hidden up their sleeves. The pair, who also decorated their house for Christmas, said the Halloween decorations were “just to have fun” and had proved to be very popular in the past. “Kids love it. It’s for kids to have fun,” Michelle said.  Terrifying Totara will be running at 40 Totara Street on Monday, October 31 from 4pm.

Rugby league tournament held at Wise Park By Emma McAuliffe

Hundreds of people descended on Wainuiomata at the weekend for the New Zealand Maori Rugby League National tournament. The tournament was hosted at Frederick Wise Park by the Wainuiomata Lions Rugby League club in conjunction with Te Awa Kairangi and Te Aroha Eels. The tournament which was split over Saturday and Sunday saw 30 teams play across three gradesRohe, Waka and Wahine Toa. Teams were welcomed into Wellington on Friday afternoon with a powhiri at Parliament hosted by Ikaroa-Rawhiti MP Meka Whaitiri. “The National Tuakana Tournament is one of the best rugby league events on the calendar and a true celebration of Maori rugby league. “Wellington has a long and proud history with New Zealand Maori

Rugby League, and it’s great that this event has returned to the Wellington province after a 15-year break,” Ms Whaitiri said. A market day was held at the park in conjunction with the tournament giving locals the opportunity to advertise and sell to a different audience. Included in the market day were the Wainuiomata High School group fundraising for a trip to Japan, as well as Sally’s Sweeties and NZ Kids Food. Locals praised the event calling it “great for the community”. “It showcases our culture and brings in opportunity for our younger boys,” Pukeatua player Rewa Te Heat said. Winning teams on the day were Ngati Umutahi in the Wahine toa section, Waikato in the Waka section and Te Kotahitanga in the Rohe section.

High School takes the cup Local boys proved their talent for rugby league at the weekend by winning the coveted Stephen Kearney cup. Wainuiomata High School’s senior rugby league team took on Wellington College in the final of the cup on

Saturday afternoon and won 24-10. The game was played at Wainuiomata High School, adjacent to the New Zealand Maori Rugby League tournament happening on the same day. This is the first time Wainuiomata

High School has won the cup having been runner up three times. The team said they were very grateful for the hard work and time put in by their two coaches, David Tari and Donovan Maxwell from the Wainuiomata Rugby League Club.

Sports talk with Jacob Page...

Aaron Smith plays his cards right Aaron Smith did the right thing in standing himself down from the All Blacks test on Saturday night against the Wallabies. Arguably one of New Zealand’s best players, he had no other option and it’s a smart public relations move on his part and the All Blacks in general. He has naturally been under fire after footage was released of him in a disabled toilet with a woman who was not his partner. While, not a law breaking offence, in today’s gossip-filled news era it’s been a story that’s just kept going. You have to feel for his partner in that situation as she’s been thrown into a circus she created none of. However Smith’s choice (which was probably forced on him), is a good long term move from the Highlanders and Manawatu player. Sure, he missed a test, but the test was largely meaningless. It also allows him to look remorseful and win back a little public good will. Short term pain, long term gain at its best. Smith’s position as the top halfback in black is not in danger, his pass and decision making have him highly rated even in this golden era of New Zealand rugby. By the end of year Northern Hemisphere tour, all of this will be forgotten by the general public. Most will see it as a punishment served, embarrassment caused and let’s move on. I’m sure that’s what the New Zealand Rugby Union will be thinking as well.
