Wainuiomata High School became sister schools with Iizuka High School, in Iizuka Japan, last week. Wainuiomata High School principal, Martin Isberg, said this was the first the school had a sister school relationship. Continued on page 2.

Continued from page 1. The relationship would ensure better opportunities and access for students to go to Japan and vice versa, he said. “It’s about both of us becoming aware of each other’s culture and promotes culture and awareness of the two countries. “I think it provides a great opportunity for our kids. Japan is a good introduction country for our

Iizuka High School already had two sister schools, however Wainuiomata High School would be the first school outside of Asia, Martin said. Wainuiomata High School

was chosen because a former student, Connor Grindlay, now worked at the kindergarten and spoke highly of the school and his home town. “They came to visit us in May because a former student, Connor Grindlay spoke highly of us, we’ve got a number of Japanese students here and they talked to them,” Martin said. Martin said the school was

excited by its new relationship with Iizuka and looked forward to taking students over in the near future. “We’ve picked up three kids who want to go next year and lined up a couple of staff who are keen to go. They’re hoping to send a couple of English teachers here to improve their English. We’d also be really keen to send our Kapa Haka group over,” he said.

Local artist to have exhibition at Mix By Emma McAuliffe

A local man will be holding a special woodcarving exhibition next week. Tony Nobbs, a Wa i nu io mata artist, will be debuting some of his latest pop culture creations at Mix Gallery from Friday, November 4. Tony, who created replicas of well-known symbols and logos, said he had been creating the art for a couple of years. “It’s my way of eventually trying to make enough money to get off the benefit,” he said. Tony said he enjoyed creating the work because he saw it as being a more “relevant and modern” way of having wo o dca r v i ng work i n t he home. “I choose brands that repr e s ent p e ople’s choic e of lifestyle. For some people these brands are ways of life and nostalgia. “It’s affordable relevant art for the working class people who want art but don’t want to spend $600 to $700 on a piece

Housing hui to address issues in community By Emma McAuliffe

A local MP will be hosting a hui later this month to discuss housing issues in the community. Ikaroa-Rawhiti MP, Meka Whaitiri, will be hosting a Housing Hui on Monday, November 14 as an opportunity for people to share their experiences around rental housing in Wainuiomata. This follows a recent trip by Ms Whaitiri to Wainuiomata,

where she was able to speak to different social groups including schools and medical centres in the community. Ms Whaitiri said it was important to shine a light on the issue of housing as “homelessness and housing issues are not just an Auckland problem”. “Throughout my electorate of Ikaroa-Rawhiti, my offices are dealing with an increasing number of vulnerable people in desperate housing situations,” she said.

Ms Whaitiri said this was also prevalent in the Wainuiomata community. “Homelessness is increasing in Wainuiomata. Many ‘emergency housing’ motels no longer accept clients referred from Work and Income and there are limited Housing New Zealand and Council options. Private rentals are also in short supply. “We hope that holding a housing hui in Wainuiomata will shine a spotlight on the

issues this community is facing and paint a clearer picture of what is happening here, and ultimately find solutions that lead to safe, stable homes for our vulnerable.” As part of the hui there would be speakers from different areas in the community, she said.  The Housing Hui will take place at the Wainuiomata Community Hall at 6.30pm on Monday, November 14. All are welcome.

Aspiring writers will be able to visit the Wainuiomata library this month as part of Nanowrimo. Nanowrimo, National Novel Writing Month, is an annual event which takes place every November and sees aspiring novelists from around the world attempt to write a 50,000 word book. Wainuiomata Library is a Come Write in Space for Nanowrimo novelists. Residents will be able to write and measure how much they’ve written throughout November.

Labour candidate selected By Emma McAuliffe

A Lower Hutt woman has been picked as Trevor Mallard’s replacement to run as a Labour candidate for Hutt South next year’s general elections. Silverstream resident Virginia Andersen was selected as Labour’s 2017 Hutt South candidate on Sunday. She was in the running against Hutt City Councillor Campbell Barry and Upper Hutt resident Sarah Packer. Ms Andersen said she was “proud and excited” to have received the nomination. “I look forward to car-

rying on the good work of Trevor Mallard in the electorate,” she said. “Hutt South is made up of strong communities and I will be working hard to make sure those voices are heard loud and clear. Kiwis deserve a fair go and they are not getting it under this National government.” Ms Andersen, who has lived in the Hutt Valley for nearly a decade, previously ran against Peter Dunne in Ohariu in 2014. She said she had wished to run in Hutt South as it was closer to home and where her children went to school. Ms Andersen said she

began her new role as candidate on Monday morning and was looking forward to meeting people across Lower Hutt and Wainuiomata and seeing what she could do for them. “I’m looking forward to meeting everyone across the Hutt South. It’s exciting to have a job where I can talk to lots of different people and learn about their lives,” she said. Current MP for Hutt South, Trevor Mallard, said he believed Ms Andersen would make an “excellent local MP”. “She’s hard working and Virginia Andersen has been selected as the knows our community Hutt South candidate for the Labour party. well,” he said.

Local schools perform at Te Papa By Emma McAuliffe

Two local schools had the opportunity to perform at Te Papa last week. Wainuiomata Primar y and Fernlea School performed at Te Papa last Friday as part of “Kids’ Kapa Haka” performance. The free performance saw the children perform to over fi fty people in the museum’s marae. The event, which was organised by local woman Louana Freuan, featured the schools and two kindergartens performing well known Maori songs and Haka. Louana said she had the idea after wishing to see the children able to perform their Kapa Haka. “Kapa Haka is all about performing, not just performing in the shower or a small room but about performing for a crowd,” she said. Louana said she approached Te Papa because she used to work there and appreciated the “genuine and authentic” feeling of the space. Louana, who teaches at Wainuiomata Primary School and Fernlea School, said Wainuioma-

Louana said she thought it was important the children had the opportunity to perform and was glad they were able to do so. “It was amazing the kids got to perform to such a big crowd. That feeling for them is what’s most important,” she said.

Just as pressure is required to get water through pipes, so we need blood pressure to circulate blood around our body. However high blood pressure, also known as hypertension, may eventually cause health problems such as heart disease, stroke, heart failure and kidney failure. In New Zealand 20% of adults are thought to have high blood pressure. During the course of the day our blood pressure goes up and down depending on what we are doing, how busy or how stressed we are, or our physical activity. People are considered to have high blood pressure when repeated measurements show a raised reading above a certain level and it stays at a higher level even when they are relaxed and sitting quietly. The problem with high blood pressure is that often there are no symptoms at all, which is why it is important to have your blood pressure checked regularly. This can be done by your doctor, nurse or pharmacist. Blood pressure should be measured at least once a year if you are over 40 years of age, or more often if you already have high blood pressure. For most adults the cause of high blood pressure is not known. All of us can reduce our risk by losing weight, increasing exercise, stopping smoking, and reducing alcohol consumption, salt intake and stress. However some people are at higher risk of hypertension because of their age, race or their family history. High blood pressure can’t be cured, but it can be controlled. For all of us this means a healthy lifestyle and sometimes taking medicines as well. If you are unsure about your blood pressure or any of your blood pressure medications then talk to any of the pharmacists at Clive’s Chemist. It may be a good idea to get your blood pressure checked at the same time.

Thanks for your support Dear Ed, Following the recent local body elections, I want to thank all the Wainuiomata people who showed their support for my campaign through their comments, helping with deliveries and other

aspects of my campaign, and those who voted for me for the positions of Councillor and Community Board member. I was unsuccessful as a Council candidate, but will continue to serve as a member of the Commu-

nity Board. This means I will enjoy more evenings at home with my husband, and a little more free time. However, I have always enjoyed working alongside the many dedicated volunteers and people in key positions who work

for the wellbeing of local residents and will continue to do so. I look forward to continuing to contribute towards achieving the remarkable potential of our community. Regards, Margaret Willard

Hutt Valley elder Kath Flynn is singing the benefits of gardening when it comes to health and wellbeing. Every fine day the Woburn Home resident can be found tending to the garden outside the Lower Hutt rest home, run by Enliven. Kath suffers from osteoarthritis which causes her constant discomfort. But she says gardening helps to ease the pain. “I have bad osteoarthritis which is quite painful. There’s no cure, but gardening helps to take my mind off it somehow. If nothing else helps, the garden does,” says Kath. “I love the garden, it’s my project here. I love getting outside in the fresh air and the sunshine – it’s absolutely wonderful. I’ve even got my own special plaque on the wall that says ‘Kath’s Garden’.” Kath says she’s out in the garden almost every day. She chooses all the plants herself and enjoys watching them grow. “Almost every Saturday I go to Bunnings with my daughter to pick two new plants for the garden. I’m like a child in a candy store!” Enliven’s Woburn Home manager Stewart Clark says staff at Woburn Home take every opportunity to support elders to continue to enjoy their hobbies and passions. “We want to look after the entire wellbeing of residents, not just their clinical needs, so it’s so important that we support them to continue doing the things they love,” says Stewart. “Having her own garden area here to look after has transformed Kath’s life. It’s

DAY IN THE

Claire Taylor Wainuiomata Neighbourhood Support Coordinator What is an average day like for you? “I battle with my kids over breakfast, hair brushing, getting dressed and running late. Arrive at school as bell rings, run daughter into her class, repeat at Kindy. Get to work and the fun begins - coordinating neighbourhood support groups, attend meetings, replying to emails and phone messages and organising events.” What would a dream day be like for you? “As above, but without the rush with the kids.”

What do you like to do in your spare time? “I am very passionate about, and dedicated to, what I like to call “my reality TV programmes”. I have a wide range of interests in this area, from Real Housewives to Geordies to Dance and Teen Moms. Seriously though, I enjoy socialising, walking, reading and getting out to Dancefit when I can.” What do you love most about working in Wainuiomata? “The people, the community, the convenience and the flexibility.”

Local youth gaining skills A young man has become employee of the month at an electrical company following his entrance into the workforce through Youth Inspire. Clayton Tipene was employed earlier this year by Clarkson’s Electrical. He was awarded with “Employee of the Month” in October. Phil Dobbin from Clarkson’s Electrical said the team had met with Youth Inspire earlier in the year and wished to help provide

a young person with work. “W hen Cla rkson’s were awarded a contract to install a new cabling system on Mobil service stations, we immediately identified a role for a keen young person, so I got in contact with Alison at Youth Inspire,” he said. Phil said they were pleased with the work Clayton had put in since arriving and the team decided to make him employee of the month.

“Clayton has proved to be an asset to our team he is willing to learn new skills and completes all tasks given to him to a high standard and on time.” The team at Youth Inspire said they were very proud of what Clayton had achieved since starting work.  For more information on Youth Inspire head to their Facebook page or www.youthinspire.co.nz/

A word from

Mayor Ray Wallace Wainuiomata I would like to thank everyone who showed they cared about our community and voted in the recent local body election. New Zealand has a great democracy that we should all be proud of. As Mayor I am really committed to making our great city even better for everyone who lives in our community. I welcome back Councillor Campbell Barry who is joined by Councillor Josh Briggs for the Wainuiomata Ward. I would also like to acknowledge outgoing Councillor Margaret Willard for her great service to Wainuiomata and the wider city. The Wainuiomata Community Board also holds an important role, and I am pleased to see some new faces as well as continuation of service. We’ve had a lot of activity in Wainuiomata lately. A big thanks and congratulations to Esther Venning, David Engwicht and the team involved in the 7-day Queen Street makeover, it’s a great result and the process was also very inspiring, with a lot of volunteers working together for the community.

The Village King International Rugby Tournament last weekend and the NZ Maori Rugby League Tournament over Labour Weekend were terrific events that also relied on a lot of hard work and commitment from very generous people in our community. Thanks to the players, their support teams, the organisers and all the spectators. I am pleased to see the refurbishment of Parkway Playground is underway and should be ready to enjoy over summer. I look forward to work also starting on the Hill shared pathway soon. Till next time everyone, be safe and take care of one another, Warm regards,

Mayor - Lower Hutt

Terrifying Totara By Emma McAuliffe

Terrifying Totara was back in action this week in celebration of Halloween. The house had visitors from 4pm last Monday, dressed up in a variety of outfits. Visitors had the chance to brave a maze and graveyard and even pick up some lollies. Homeowner, Michelle Smith told the Wainuiomata News ear-

lier in the week, the house had been running for five years with each year it gaining more traction. “It keeps getting bigger and better each year. On the day it is always better,” she said. Residents also had the chance to take selfies in different areas, including on a vibrating electric chair.  Did you visit Terrifying Totara? What did you think? Let us know at news@wsn.co.nz

A local school will be encouraging people to get healthy at a special expo next week. The Arakura School Health Expo will be running for the first time next Tuesday as an opportunity for the school to show locals what is on offer in the community. Board of Trustees member, Katrina Barclay, said the board was hoping to engage with community on health providers and the school’s health curriculum. “One of our big things is engaging and communicating

with the community as a board of trustees. “We need to consult the community on our health curriculum. We thought this might be a good way to do a community health survey, and people at the expo can do this at their leisure,” she said. Katrina said until organising the expo she “didn’t realise how many health services there were available in Wainuiomata”. Health services which would be taking part in the expo included Milk for Schools, Kickstart Breakfast, Fruit in schools as well as Wainuiomata

based providers NZ Kids Food and Naku Enei Tamariki. Arakura School staff would also be available to talk to parents about the school’s health curriculum. “We’ve tried to get all the health services available in the community to come along. We’ve had such positive feedback. People whose stalls we’ve had to turn away have said they would like to get involved if we do it again,” Katrina said.  The Arakura School Health Expo will be taking place on Tuesday, November 8 from 3pm until 7pm at the Arakura School hall.

Harriers wrap up successful year

The Wainuiomata Harriers have wrapped up another successful season with a prize giving held recently. The club had a lot of successes this year including sending 11 athletes to Taupo in July for the North Island Cross Country champs. The event saw two athletes with top 10 placings, including Don McGowan who placed second in his race. Closer to home it was the 7th time the Harriers hosted the Wellington Road Racing Champs and the 20th year of the successful Wainuiomata Classic Mountain Run. The race was held in conjunction with the Wellington Mountain Running Championships, so the calibre of racing was very high. Three runners from the Wainuiomata club placed in the top three in their respective grades. The club’s masters womens team successfully defended the Burns cup against all other Hutt Valley and Wai-
