National honours beckon By Dave Crampton

Former boxer Rico Seumanu is aiming for selection as a national referee for the first time - at the age of 51. A Wainuiomata resident since 2000, Rico is aiming to be nominated, and then selected by New Zealand Boxing, to referee national bouts in a few months. Continued on page 2. Rico Seumanu is aiming to be a national boxing referee.

Wainuiomata hoping to have its first national referee Continued on page 2. When he does, he will be the Wainuiomata Boxing Club’s first member to do so in its 50-year history. To date Rico has refereed 50 bouts in the past two years, and national honours is clearly realistic. “I’m just going to do as many tournaments as I can do,” Rico said. Rico who quit the sport in 1986

after boxing for nearly four years in four different weight divisions, then played rugby league for Randwick’s reserve grade. He returned to boxing two years ago as a referee when his teenage son Raymond was making a name for himself as one of the country’s top junior boxers. If it wasn’t for Raymond he may not have been a referee – or a New Zealand Boxing Association official judge.

“Raymond came up to me one day and said he wanted to take up the sport. I told him, ‘this is a tough sport and it’s not for everyone but if you commit to it then I’ll do the same’,” Rico said. “I trained Raymond for some months before we signed up with the Wainuiomata Boxing Club.” He enjoys the sport as a referee as much as he did when a boxer.

“Oh yeah, its good fun. I`ve never been hit - but it’s been close,” he said. Wainuiomata Boxing Club head coach Craig Bennett said Rico has an advantage over many other referees. “There are guys who have never had boxing experience Rico has,” he said. Rico has refereed many regional bouts and his next one is in Lower Hutt next month.

YOUR LOCAL NEWSPAPER

While beggars are common place in Wellington’s main streets during office hours, a young man who is unable to go on a benefit after leaving school can be seen sitting on Queen Street for few hours each day. Rather than begging, he is selling assorted possessions laid out in front of him on the street.

Items include 3-D glasses, a DVD, and headphones. Dylan Tamaha-Hall, 17, is living with his beneficiary mother in Wainuiomata, and is unable to receive a benefit in his own right, so he cycles to Queen Street and sits outside the Laudromat. “Mum wants me to stay at

home until I turn 25-years- old,” he said. “I can’t get a benefit.” The Youth benefit is only available to those who do not live at home, or are not financially supported by anyone else. Likewise, the unsupported child benefit is available to those who live away from home and is paid to the caregiver. The main

benefit is for those who are 18-years-old and over. Dylan has already sold his skateboard, and said he is looking for suitable work. “Anything. Lawn-mowing, vacuum cleaning,” he said.  Do you have any work for Dylan? Contact us at news@ wsn.co.nz.

Community BBQ a real success By Dave Crampton

Teenagers and community leaders - including Labour candidate Virginia Andersen (middle) and Gabriel Tupou (left) relax at the community BBQ.

Wainuiomata turned on a beautiful day for its community BBQ held at the Queen Street Reserve on March 10. Children and parents mixed and mingled with local politicians and community leaders - and the children even got to play with Hutt South MP Trevor Mallard’s popular dog, Elsa. Gabriel Tupou, Wainuiomata Community Board deputy chair, said there was good turnout of about 50 people. Wainuiomata Community Hub’s Tania Snoep said the Hub was approached to run the event as part of National Parks Week, and more than 200 sausages were consumed. The highlight, she said, was the community engagement and discussion. “There were some families there that have grown up in Wainuiomata and they were reminiscing on how Wainuiomata used to be,” she said. Hutt South Labour candidate Virginia Andersen managed to eat a couple of sausages – and enjoyed meeting locals in what was a “pretty hot” afternoon. “People came together to catch up -a lot of young people came along.” Many of these were local youth from Ti Hei Rangatahi got themselves an afternoon bite to eat while meeting others in the community. Local Jasmine Acker appreciated the community spirit, with people pitching in to pull everything together. “It was really, really good. People were jumping on the BBQ at different times, getting the sausages ready, getting the onions ready,” she said. It had a good community feel – it was a good time for people to mix and mingle.”

It will be the first meeting of its kind in Wainuiomata and while about 100 are expected, more are welcome. Wainuiomata Sportsville executive officer Penny Hargraves knows that community members can successfully work together - they’ve done it before, when the outdoor swimming pool was built. “The community has proven that it can pull together – it pulled together and got itself a pool.” It’s the only outdoor 50m swimming pool in the Wellington region. The groups’ spokespeople also cited community involvement

Poly group to perform at educator’s seminar

inbrief news

National Swimmers Hutt swimmers will feature prominently at Swimming New Zealand’s National Age Group championships which started yesterday in Wellington. The meet is also a trial for the Commonwealth Youth Games to be held in the Bahamas later this year. Top Hutt freestyler Chelsey Edwards,15, looks set to qualify for this team after swimming the equivalent of an Olympic “B” qualifying standard earlier this year in Wellington. She is top seed in her age group and second overall in the 50m freestyle in the competition for those aged 12-18. Georgia More also looks set to be in the medals in butterfly events. Both swim for the Hutt’s Swimzone Racing club. The championships at the Wellington Regional Aquatic Centre concludes on Saturday.

A group formed at Wainuiomata College to provide a social outlet for Pasifika students entering New Zealand is to support educator Dr Jean Mitaera as she gives a seminar at the college on Thursday. The seminar, arranged by the New Zealand Education Institute Pasifika branch in Wainuiomata, is for parents and others interested in education issues. The group’s spokesperson, Tute Porter-Samuels, is pleased the Poly Club is performing prior to Dr Mitaera’s seminar on Pasifika learning. “She was invited because she has a nice way of challenging assumptions of Pasifika learning,” she said. “I think it’s about promoting Pacific success – and the group is trying to raise money for uniforms.” Not all those in the Poly Group are from the Pacific Islands. Many are Samoan students – but anyone is welcome. John Martin, 16, has been a member since the beginning of last year, and joined to experience the culture. He’s looking forward to performing action songs with the group on Thursday. “It gives us a chance to show off what we have been practising,” he said. John doesn’t speak Samoan so that provides some challenges. However, Ramese Taulofa, 12, has no problems with that. “I`m fluent in Samoan.” He joined the group to have fun with Samoan friends, and has lived

in New Zealand for the past eight years. Wainuiomata High teacher aide Nivaga Numiamalii started the group to assist students new to the school who had come from the Islands and were missing home. They practice three times a week in lunch hours. “Some feel so lonely. The group is like a family community – it’s made them so happy,” she said. Nivaga was asked by the local NZEI Pasifika branch if the group will perform two songs –

including an action song – before Thursdays talk at the Wainuiomata College auditorium.

Realities of rest home living unveiled If you think that life in a rest home is about slowing down, you may want to think again. Enliven southern manager, Dr Terry Moore, is setting the record straight about the realities of rest home life and what makes Enliven homes different. “At Enliven homes we support people to continue doing the things they’ve always done, the things they love so that they can continue to live a fulfilling and quality life no matter what their age or circumstances.” Enliven, part of the not-for-profit organisation Presbyterian Support Central, operates 15 homes between Wellington and Taranaki, including Woburn Home and Apartments in Lower Hutt. Terry says Enliven homes are residentcentred, meaning the residents call the shots. “Residents are part of the decision making process at Enliven homes. They are on the interviewing panel for new senior staff and they decide how their home is run and how

That’s why we put a huge emphasis on encouraging and supporting residents to maintain, and even to regain, their independence so they can maintain control over their lives.” Terry says many people think of rest homes as uninteresting places, but he says that couldn’t be further from the truth at Enliven homes. “Enliven’s model of care, the Eden Alternative, recognises that hobbies, passions and interests make life worth living. We support residents to continue with their hobbies, and even take up new ones, in ways which are right for them and their abilities,” says Terry. “There’s so much to do at Enliven homes that some residents have said that they’ve never been so busy in their lives! Daily life is filled with variety and spontaneity, with so many activities, outings and events, that your social calendar can be filled to the brim if you want it to be.” He says pets are even welcome at Enliven homes. “Your pet can move in with you providing it gets along with others. Having companionship is important, that’s why we encourage contact with people, children, plants and animals – it’s part of our unique model of care.” Terry is encouraging anyone looking at residential care options in the Hutt Valley to pay Enliven’s Woburn Home in Lower Hutt a visit. “Arrange a time to visit one of our homes and see what makes us different.” PBA  To find out more about Enliven’s homes and services in Wellington, including Woburn Home, located at 57 Wai-iti Crescent in Lower Hutt, free phone 0508 ENLIVEN (that’s 0508 36 54 83) or visit www.enlivencentral.org.nz.

Q: What do you think of Lorde’s new song Green Light, which is the number one viral song globally?

Cameron Tamaka, Wainuiomata

Ronan Takawe, Wainuiomata

Marie Hunia, Wainuiomata

Zane Benton, Wainuiomata

Cullen Jennings-Nairn, Wainuiomata

“It’s not really my type of music to be honest.”

“I think it’s a low-key product. It’s got the rhythm but the lyrics are bad.”

“It’s entertaining, aye? People love it.”

“I think it’s pretty good - it’s got a good beat to it.”

“It’s a catchy song. It reminds us all of the Lord (I go to a Catholic school).”

From the

Reporter’s desk Every day our roving reporter Dave Crampton breaks news and meets locals throughout Wainuiomata. Each week he shares a few tales from his travels.

Wainuiomata is a great suburb. Thanks to all who have made me welcome here to date. Thanks for all who have sent images and contacted us with news to cover. There are lot of good news stories to be told and this is the only paper that focuses on Wainuiomata. We have top sports people, talented creative people – and a brighter future, now that the Mall is being bought by Progressive Enterprises. It has been great to reconnect with the local MPs - Chris Bishop and

Trevor Mallard - with Mayor Ray Wallace to follow later this month. Politicians – both in central and local government – are busy people and work hard for their communities. As most will know, this year is election year. The Hutt region will have a new MP, one who has never been an electorate MP. Don’t forget the Maori electorates either. Wainuiomata is part of Ikaroa-Rawhiti, and its MP, Meka Whaitiri, has an electorate office in Wainuiomata and is Labour’s spokesperson for local

Zac McMurchin, Wainuiomata “It’s pretty good – it’s got a nice rhythm to it.”

government. It has been great meeting children, parents, older people, community activists, sportspeople and students in the area over the past two weeks, and hearing their stories. If you have something you think may be newsworthy - if you have lost your cat, won Lotto or set a sporting record or achievement, or are celebrating your 60th wedding anniversary – do get in touch. Chances are others will want to know about this too.

LETTERS to the editor Letters on issues of community interest are welcomed. Guidelines are that they should be no longer than 150 words. They must be signed and a street address provided to show good faith, even if a nom de plume is provided for publication. The editor reserves the right to abridge letters or withhold unsuitable letters from publication. Send or fax them to the address on page two, or email them to news@wsn.co.nz. Please note that your name and street address must also be provided in e-mails.

How about having a get to-gether with your neighbours to celebrate. HAVE FUN! We can help you set up a Neighbourhood Support group in your street. Once done, you will all get regular newsletters, safety tips and info. from Police & Civil Defence. We’ll even put up street & letter box signs to let people know you are all looking out for each other. Telephone Margy on 5602622 or phone or text 027 223 3373. Email: manager@huttsafecity.co.nz SAFER COMMUNITIES TOGETHER

Having a say on the mall Dear Ed, With Progressive Enterprises buying the mall, are the people of Wainuiomata going to have a say as to what type of shops will be opened at the mall? With a lot of young people buying houses here maybe we could have a better variety of shops such as: craft shop, stationery, materials and sewing, clothing and maybe a place for the kids where they can play computer games.

This of course is just my opinion. A nice coffee shop where one could get coffee and something light to eat would also be nice. I do some crafting and sewing and have to go all the way to Spotlight for anything that I need when it would be nice just to go to our own mall instead. What do think and should the folks here be asked what they would like at the new mall. Denise Gibson

March lawn makeover Do you have more bare patches than grass in your lawn? Or a particular spot that has received a lot of ‘love’ (also known as wear and tear) from pets or children? March is an ideal time to patch those empty spots and help create a lush green lawn. Why March? Air temperatures are milder in autumn but the soil is still warm enough to encourage root growth. So new grass planted or sown at this time of year can establish before the cooler weather arrives and have many months to settle in before the heat of next summer. Source: Yates New Zealand

Boxers make an impact Wellington Phoenix Academy graduates out to end almost thirty-year wait

Ieu Jerome Ropati, Raymond Seumanu and Manawa Lambert are shining lights at the Wainuiomata Boxing Club By David Crampton

Three Wainuiomata High students have returned from boxing events with encouraging results, some against more experienced boxers. The teens train at the Wainuiomata Boxing Club several times a week under head coach Craig Bennett. One, Raymond Seumanu, 15, wants to become a professional boxer and cleaned up at a competition in Hastings. The four-time national champion has an impressive 23-1 record, and is aiming for international honours next year. “We are realistically looking at international duties,” Craig said of Seumanu. “He has the potential to represent New Zealand at world Juniors – that’s what we are aiming for.” “He is the best that has been put out in New Zealand so far - in his age group.”

The other two, Manawa Lambert (13) and Jerome Ropati (14) boxed well in Wanganui recently, the latter against more seasoned competition. “He boxed against a boy from Gisborne who had more experience. It was a good start, it was his first ever boxing tournament, and he won the first and second rounds,” Craig said. Manawa was competing in his third competition. “He came away with a good result,” Craig said. Raymond, whose father Rico is a former boxer and a current referee and judge, wants to own his own gym one day. He used to attend bouts and watch Rico. Now he loves travelling around the country and wants to travel further afield and says he wants to win the World Junior champs. “It would mean the world to me.”

It’s been nearly three decades in the making for Wellington United but this Sunday Wellington Phoenix Academy’s young footballers will feature in their first Hilton-Petone Cup final. It’s another feather in the cap for the Academy’s program which follows last month’s call up of four boys, Liberato Cacere, Willem Ebbinge, Oliver Whyte and Jake Williams to represent New Zealand at the U17 OFC tournament, with Whyte scoring a last-minute semifinal winner to secure qualification for New Zealand to the FIFA U17 World Cup in India. February also saw Academy graduate Sarpreet Singh burst through into the Phoenix’s senior team, making his A-League debut, aged just 18. Boasting an average age of just over

16, including two 14-year-olds and three 15-year-olds, the Academy boys, playing for Wellington United, have swept aside adult Central League opposition on route to the final, scoring 14 goals across four games. The Hilton-Petone Cup in Wellington’s premier pre-season knockout football tournament, and has been running in different forms since 1955. Miramar Rangers won that first event but for supporters of Wellington United it’s been a long wait since their last crown in 1989. Wellington United take on Petone A in the final this Sunday, March 26 at 2.30pm at Memorial Park in Petone, with the senior Phoenix team in action 7pm at Westpac Stadium against the Newcastle Jets.
