Hutt City Council’s pool and water safety campaign Be ‘Kid Cool’ around your pool is the message being promoted by Hutt City Council at summer events this year. Working with Water Safety New Zealand, the campaign informs locals about pool fencing and water safety providing educational material for use in pre-schools and early childhood centres. Council has also created educational pamphlets, posters, street billboards and magnets encouraging parents to learn about water and pool safety. For more information head to www.huttcity. govt.nz.
Amahre and Tyna perform on the youth stage. By Emma McAuliffe
Rough winds could not stop hundreds of people descend on Lower Hutt for an annual festival at the weekend. Te Rao te Raukura took place on Sunday at Te Whiti Park just over the hill in Waiwhetu.
The family-friendly event, had rides, stalls, a youth zone and a main stage for performers. Wainuiomata youth organisation TiHei Rangatahi with the Mana Ake artists headlined the youth stage. Tyna Keelan, TiHei Rangatahi facilitator, told the crowd it was
a chance to showcase the local young musicians including Reriti Moeahu and Amahre Edwardson. The songs, which had been written by the young people, were starting to debut on local radio stations, he said. The headline act of the day
was Wellington band Fat Freddy’s Drop who played on the main stage during the afternoon. Did you go to Te Rā o te Raukura this year? What did you think? Let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
