Kindergarten to celebrate 100 years this weekend Continued from page 1. “The deck was put in in the 1990s. Another area was enclosed in the 1930s. The grounds have had huge changes. We’ve made the area a lot more homely. We’ve tried to make it a very natural environment. A lot of our kids are city kids and they live in apartments or places with

small sections,” Margaret said. She said she was very excited to be part of the kindergarten as it celebrated its centenary. “We are the first of the Wellington kindergartens to turn 100. It’s pretty powerful. It’s actually amazing to be at a place with such a sense of history behind it. We’ve got someone who

was here in the 1930s coming on the day. I’m sure there could be people who are older. We’ve got a real sense of community that these people are keen to come along,” she said. Celebrations for the kindergarten would be taking place on Saturday, April 8 with the community invited along to join

in on the celebrations. Mayor of Wellington Justin Lester will be unveiling three plaques, including the foundation stone, the plaque for their 60th celebration and a new one for their 100th anniversary. At noon there would be a cake cutting with the oldest past pupil and the youngest current pupil. A time capsule buried five years ago would also be unearthed. Margaret said it was important for the kindergarten that they remained engaged with their community. “Our other name we hope to go by is Te Whare Kohungahunga o Berhampore. The Berhampore house of little children. We’re hoping to get this as our official name when we get new signage,” she said.  The Berhampore Kindergarten 100th Birthday celebration will take place on Saturday, April 8 at the kindergarten on Stanley Street, Berhampore from 10am.

Solar power drive successful for Margaret Stewart House By Emma McAuliffe

Cancer Society Wellington is feeling empowered following a successful campaign to get 116 solar panels on the roof of their Margaret Stewart

House. The Ma rga ret Stewa r t House is a home away from home for people travelling from out of town for cancer treatment. It is located on the grounds of Wellington

Hospital rented by the Cancer Society. Up to 40 people stay overnight at Margaret Stewart House a night. This could be for up to six months. The solar panels were in-

stalled on the house with the help of Solar King and would save the cost in electricity for the house around $300,000 in their lifetime, Chief executive for Cancer Society Wellington, Michael Smith said. “We can use [this] to provide more support to the families,” he said. The new panels were celebrated at a breakfast held on Friday at Margaret Stewart House. Green MP Gareth Hughes was in attendance and celebrated the community coming together to fundraise for the panels. “It’s inspiring to be here and to see the support from the community. We can have clean energy in New Zealand. I’ve been championing the idea of solar power. It’s a wonderful success story. I guess you could say this was an empowered community,” he said. Fundraising manager for the Cancer Society, Graeme Milne, said he was grateful for the amount of the community support the project had, which saw the society raise $70,000 between June 2016 and February. “This was a good community project which was well supported. The money we save on electricity will be ploughed straight back into supporting the families at Margaret Stewart House,” he said.

Nature trail gets more children on town belt By Emma McAuliffe

A new nature trail encouraging famlies to get out and explore Mount Victoria opened at the weekend. The Matairangi Nature Trail was launched on Sunday to promote the walkways and get more children on the town belt. Project manager for parks and recreation David Halliday said the event went well despite the weather.

He said the idea was sparked following a conference where he found out about play trailsnature-themed playground equipment with trails and greenways to create a playful trail experience for children and families. These would run alongside trails and paths in common walking areas. “I took that idea and discussed it with colleagues. We were keen to have a more natural feel to some of our play areas so we developed a play

trail. We also wanted to get more children onto the town belt,” he said. The Matairangi Nature Trail mostly follows the Southern Walkway and features play stations reflecting and imagining elements of nature based on the habitat of the matuku hurepo (Australasian bittern), kapokapowai (dragonf ly), tuna, moko pirirakau (forest gecko) and weta. Each station provides opportunities for children to step,

David said most of the creatures chosen for the Nature Trail could be found on Mount Victoria and in Wellington. “You would expect to see some of them on the path. Others like the eel you would not expect to see on Mount Victoria but you might in other parts of Wellington. There are bits and pieces still to come,” he said.

Signing on for better early childhood education By Emma McAuliffe

The fight for funding in early child education centres continued last week at Newtown Kindergarten. Labour spokesman for education Chris Hipkins and candidate for Rongotai Paul Eagle visited the kindergarten on Thursday to sign a pledge created by New Zealand Education Institute Te Riu Roa with goals of restoring funding to early childhood education centres, reducing the ration of children to teachers and restoring the

goal of 100 per cent of teachers qualified in early childhood education. Mr Hipkins said committing to these goals was a “no brainer”. “Participation in early childhood education is really important. So funding early childhood education is a no brainer in that regard,” he said. Mr Eagle said children in the southern suburbs would really benefit from more institutions like Newtown Kindergarten, where the staff were fully qualified in early childhood

education. “This is one of the poorest parts of Wellington, its an ethnically diverse culture in the city. Government cuts are felt here the deepest in places like Newtown. Parents don’t have much.Many live in social housing and really struggle to make ends meet. They need fully qualified, teachers and ratios,” Mr Eagle said. Parent Degu Geddebo said quality early childhood education was very important to him. “This is the best place to transition a child to school. I

feel like its the best place to get a start in life. “This is our third kindergarten. The first one we went to was a private kindergarten but it was too expensive. Then we went to another one but it did not have qualified teachers and our son could tell the difference. We are lucky we’ve been able to find this one with 100 per cent qualified teachers. It really makes a difference,” he said. Degu added despite there being benefits he believed the centre still faced challenges when it came to funding. “They should be able to focus on the quality of their teaching instead of on getting money. Parents get tired of donating. They get donor fatigue. You should be able to have consistant funding,” he said. Head teacher Erin McFlynn said she was pleased to have the opportunity to have Mr Hipkins and Mr Eagle come along to the kindergarten. She said the kindergarten would really benefit from more funding. “Reduction of funding has meant that we have reduced teaching stuff and non contact hours a week. We have no whanau group or committee so we do all the arranging of fundraising. We have to squeeze the same workload into shorter hours,” Erin said.

Tyre puncturing in Miramar Locals are being urged to be careful with their vehicles after a recent spate of tyre puncturing in Miramar. A spokesperson for Police said Police had received two reports of cars parked on Cobham

Drive, opposite the Wellywood sign, having had their tyres damaged recently. The first was on February 18, when five vehicles were affected and the second was on March 25, when six vehicles were

reported to have had their tyres punctured. They said officers had reviewed the information and at this stage there were no further lines of enquiry to follow. “However, we are keen to hear

from anyone who may have information in relation to these incidents and encourage them to contact their local Police station, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111,” they said.

Mob to make debut at BATS By Emma McAuliffe

Oscar and Harry Bartle are looking forward to The Improv Mob. PHOTO: Emma McAuliffe

St r at h mor e brot her s 18-year-old Oscar and 16-year-old Harry Bartle are two of the members. Oscar has been with the group since just after it started and his younger brother Harry started six months later. They were both excited to be making their debut on the BATS Theatre stage with The Improv Mob. “It’s just a good time. It’ll be good to support us. A lot of us want to make a career out of it,” Harry said. “It’s a student run show. It was pitched by us. It’s been made by a younger community. It really shows it matters more to us than just a two week course,” Oscar said.

A ga ng of you ng Strathmore improvisers will be making their professional debut at BATS Theatre next week. The Improv Mob, who will be performing their show of the same name, is a collection of 16 to 18 year olds from across Wellington, who have been working together for three years, honing their craft, while attending Rata Studios Theatresports weekly workshops. The group of 12 has been performing regular shows each term at Rata Studios, but the BATS show will be their professional debut.

Oscar said the show would consist of three teams playing traditional Theatresports games, competing for points from judges selected each night from the audience, who will judge story line, entertainment, and technique. “You come and you don’t know what exactly you’re going to see. The positive is you can be slightly involved. If you wanted to come every night you could and the show would be completely different,” Oscar said.  The Improv Mob will be playing at BATS Theatre from April 11 to 13 at 8pm.

Marsden School Scholarships for entry in 2018

By Emma McAuliffe

Newtown School has a new Friendship Seat and it is made out of the products that help people smile. The school won a park bench made out of recycled oral care waste as part of the recently wrapped Colgate Community Recycle Drive and chose to use it to make a Friendship Seat for students. A Friendship Seat would encourage new friendships around the school, year five student Estella Ward explained. “If you don’t have anyone to play with you can sit down on

it and if someone else doesn’t either or if a group doesn’t they can pick you up from it and play with you,” Estella said. Colgate and global recycling and upcycling pioneers, TerraCycle, created the Community Recycle Drive to call on New Zealand residents to recycle their used oral care items and raise funds for their local school, preschool, sporting club or community group. The drive is part of the Oral Care Recycling Programme launched by Colgate and TerraCycle in October 2014, a recycling scheme in which Newtown School is an active col-

lector. Newtown School was one of the top six collectors in the drive, collecting oral care waste such as toothbrushes, toothpaste tubes and mouthwash bottles. As part of their prize, the students designed their own park bench made of oral care waste. “We believe it is important to do everything we can to care for our environment,” said Newtown School teacher Tim Crawshaw. “What better way to manage our needed waste but to recycle it, rather than send it to landfill?”

Nadine had been working with leather since 2007 and revealed the success of her winning 2008 WOW winning piece OrnithoMaia stemmed from her love of experimentation. “My first real exploration of leather was that piece - and it won the supreme award,” Nadine said. It was this wearable art that got the attention of overseas art enthusiasts Arnfinn Prugger and Lindsay Embree. They asked Nadine to craft new wearable art and wanted to see what she could create without restraint. The yet-to-be-named piece was requested by the Canadian couple with the intention of taking it home to Saskatchewan, Canada to display in their house. Nadine said, they did not give her any sort of brief, allowing a freedom that was beneficial for the artist and the art. “If they let the artist do what their fingers want to do, it’s even better.” Arnfinn said he did not know what to expect before Nadine’s art was revealed but was pleased with the result. “We’re super happy, over the moon. We’ve never bought a piece like this,” he said. The piece will soon be relocated to Canada but will remain on display at Roxy cinema in Miramar until Friday.

An interactive online map has recently been launched in Wellington, highlighting the connection the city has to its natural surroundings, environment, and local wildlife. The Wellington Nature Map will give both locals and visitors a chance to celebrate and participate in the urban playground that incorporates the capital’s harbour, hills, coastline, and native flora and fauna. As well as biodiversity, it also shows aspects of the built environment and sculptures that have been inspired by the nature of the city. The Wellington Nature Map can be found on the Wellington City Council website.

Farewell Rev Ashmore Dear Ed, Easter celebrations in the eastern suburbs won’t be quite the same this year because we will be missing the marvellous Rev Larry Ashmore who retired a few weeks ago. Larry was vicar of St Jude’s Anglican

Church, Lyall Bay, and then assistant priest at All Saints Kilbirnie-Hataitai, for more than eight years. He truly was a man “in whom there is no guile”. He served our community tirelessly with huge commitment- not just as vicar, but through his

Address correction Dear Ed, I was pleased to see that my letter about the Island Bay Tamar Street bus stops was published in this week’s Cook Strait News( March

23) I would like to point out however that while I am sure Strathmore Park is a lovely place to live my home for the last sixty two years has been in Island Bay and together with many

other residents I have been seriously inconvenienced by the loss of those Tamar Street bus stops. Here’s to their restoration. Irene Fagan, Island Bay

Nothing preventing humans from mending Dear Ed, Johnny Overton strikes again (“Our delusional leadership strikes again”, CSN March 30). He concludes only a Messiah can save humans from their own exploitative mind-set which is destroying the planet. But there is nothing preventing humans from

mending their own ways. While giving Overton credit for reasonable observations of this mind-set it must be noted that the cultural / political space we have put ourselves in is one of denial. Denial could give way to action creating a new sustainable way of life if certain, probably

unpredictable, events occur. Their unpredictability might leave it difficult to understand and might seem like magic but it would have been a human process. Richard Keller, Lyall Bay

Many thanks to The Little Teapot Dear Ed, May I through your paper express my gratitude to the lovely ladies who run “The Little Teapot”, 29 Coutts Street, Kilbirnie. I recently urgently needed to stage my house for sale as was running out of time. Was very stressed when I called in and asked where they purchased the little table and two chairs outside on the footpath. Instead of advising me,

they kindly offered to let me borrow them for a few weeks instead. We have never met and their trust is incredible. I just wanted to let those in the Southern Suburbs know that it’s not just the food that is sweet in this cute little café. Many thanks, PS- Don’t worry Maria, I will return them shortly! Mary-Leigh Dalton Melrose

French in school Dear Ed, To consider French being taught at Newtown school is simple appalling. Clearly a couple of overzealous parents have got on the board and are wasting time and resources. The Board needs to focus on teaching English and Te Reo in this low decile school. If some fancy pants French people want their kids to learn French then get a private tutor. This is a STATE school. Remind ourselves that our soldiers fought all over Europe for France. Then they in return dropped nuke bombs at Muroa in the Pacific for decades and stuffed

the environment, then the French bomb the Rainbow Warrior in Auckland. The only Frenchie I support is a condom. I think the English language should be supported first, along with Te Reo at this school. If there is extra funds in the Board’s budget then I support teaching Chinese next, then there is a few other ethnic groups that are larger than the very small percentage of French speaking persons. Utter madness. Rose Wu, Kilbirnie

Exploring theatre making with a show David (right) in character. PHOTO: Supplied.

A Mount Cook local will be making his debut with Wellington Repertory Theatre this week in a show exploring what it means to be a theatre practitioner. David Tayler will be playing actor Saul Watson in Rick Abbott’s Play On! which follows a group of actors trying to put on a show despite constant interference from the playwright . David, who moved to New Zealand 10 years ago, said rehearsals for the show had been going well. “This show makes rehearsals really fun. We just roll around laughing,” he said. David said it was the shows humour that had drawn him to auditioning and joining the show. “I just love comedy. I love all aspects of it. I had some time on my hands and so I wanted to see what comedies were

being done. I’ve done a couple of other things in Kapiti but this is my first show with Wellington rep,” he said. David has also written a play and is currently in the process of writing a musical. He has in the past written and directed a pantomime in Kapiti, which countered the experiences portrayed in Play On! “I wrote the script so there were no disasters,” he said. David said he encouraged everyone who liked to have a laugh to come to the show. “This will be the most wonderful night and will give you a smile which will stay on your face for about a week. It’s so funny. We still find it hilarious and we’ve been rehearsing it for weeks,” he said.  Play On! runs until April 15 at the Gryphon Theatre on Ghuznee Street. Tickets can be booked online at or call 479 3393.

New mural to highlight natural spaces By Emma McAuliffe

A Strathmore preschool has been brightened up with a new mural. The new mural at Peninsula Preschool was created by Aidan Walbaekken and was finished last week after he worked closely with the staff and teachers to discover what they wanted. Teacher Michele Moore said the mural came as part of an environment change which had been going on for 18 months. “We got rid of all the plastic equipment to make way for a more natural environment and

we wanted the art to be reflected in the environment. “The children decided they wanted more colour,” she said. Manager Linda Sutherland said she was pleased with how well Aidan worked with the children and staff at the preschool. “Aidan was happy to work with the children and teachers and parents. The children were really keen to have insects and critters and Aidan obliged. Children could see the progress as it was happening. They have a strong sense of ownership over it already,” she said. Linda said the mural would

also be dedicated to Michele who would be leaving after 10 years at the preschool this year. “She initiated a lot of these natural spaces,” Linda said. Aidan, a student at Learning Connexion, said he was happy to be part of the project to give the children more natural spaces. “This is a product of a real collaborative effort. I really enjoy doing native birds. They are so significant to us. I think the children wanted the caterpillars and the butterflies [and this reflects what they do at preschool as] children evolve into something beautiful,” he said.

Big Wash Hataitai

* With any purchase over $10 * Conditions Apply • Valid until 8th July 2017

Big Wash, the Hataitai 24 Hr Laundrette, has been run by the Mulholland family since the eighties. It has evolved and undergone many transformations over the years, some planned and some not. In October 2016 the building caught fire gutting the workshop, damaging machinery and forcing a four month closure. “In that time I learnt a lot about the business and our customers,” says manager Danny Mulholland. “I had all the phone calls diverted to my mobile and responded directly with our customers who were all extremely supportive.” Then, one week after finally re-opening they were struck another blow. “We were vandalised for the first time in nearly 20 years of self service 24 hour operation. There’s normally people using the shop all through the night so it takes care of itself. These people caused a lot of damage to get a few dollars in coins.”




“We’ve now switched to a token system so there’s no coins or cash in the building. Ketan & Reeka at Hataitai 4 Square have been great telling people about the change over and Judy at the Caltex Basin Reserve is now stocking our tokens so we can stay as a true 24 hour business.” Danny is busy man outside of the laundry game, running Sweet Sounz radio, an Island Bay football club com-

mittee member and a parent but the shop is home. “People have known my mum and dad through four decades. There’s generations of people that have come through the shop. They know us and trust us. My kids have grown up in there just like my brother and I did. Life has got busier for people and they can come to us for a clean, cheap and quick way to a weekly job.”

Heel Pain Slowing You Down? By Dr Tim Halpine of Active Feet Podiatry Pain in the heel is common in both adults and in preteens. In adults it most commonly is plantar fasciitis, a strain to the arch ligament. Pain on

first standing in the morning under the heel is the most common symptom. Dr Halpine of Active Feet Podiatry recommends a stretch before standing of the part of the arch where it meets the heel. This often helps avoid the sharp-

est of the pain when you do stand. The preteen heel pain that bring 11 to 13 year olds limping off the sports field is likely to be Sever’s Disease, and irritation of the growth plate in the calcaneus (heel bone). A complete

evaluation of the gait and shoes by Dr Halpine is recommended for both these types of heel pain. For more information see or call for a consultation on 473 8696.

Late goal decides thriller at Wakefield Park Island Bay United AFC and Wellington Olympic squared off in the opening game of the season for Capital Premier Football at Wakefield Park at the weekend. This followed a busy Saturday morning at the club for junior players, with around 430 Island Bay youth having their first game of football for 2017. This year Island Bay has 12 opengrade men’s teams, 3 women’s teams, 3 Masters men’s teams and an under 17 team playing each weekend in the senior grade. In the Premier match, a tight game saw Island Bay take a first half lead through Pat Hayton, with a second half equaliser for Olympic. The

match was won with a late strike from Olympic’s Daniel Minshull, with the final score being 2-1. Coach Mick Waitt said while he was disappointed with the result he was happy with the performance. He said he felt Island Bay had dominated the game but were wasteful in front of goal and thought Olympic goalkeeper Washington Bgoni had “pulled off a few first class saves to keep Olympic in the game”. Pat Hayton was man of the match for Island Bay and received a gift voucher from major sponsor Bel Mondo International Food Market / La Bella Italia. Captain Bryn Hickson Rowden said the boys were “gutted” by the defeat

Gardening keeps Italy close

If you walked down Trent Street in Island Bay on a Sunday 50 years ago, the smell of fresh pasta sauce cooking would leave little doubt you had hit Little Italy. Ever since Italian immigrants first arrived in Island Bay in the late 1800s they have kept a tight-knit community based around family, food and fishing. Many of the fishermen and their families kept to the streets closest to the sea: Brighton Street, Trent Street, The Esplanade and The Parade, and a handful of descendants still live there today. Kiwi-Italian Nina Cuccurullo said the Italians kept Italy close by having their own gardens to grow produce that wasn’t readily available in New Zealand. Even now, many Italians will have an Italian garden patch. “My grandfather, when he returned to Italy in the sixties, he brought seeds from tomatoes

on the Island where he was from. “My brother and I are still growing the tomatoes from the original seeds,” she said. Nina and her brother Gino were the children of Teresa Ruocco and Antonio Cuccurullo, both first generation immigrants to Island Bay. Nina said family was an important part of growing up in Island Bay’s Italian community. “We grew up family-orientated. Our cousins were our friends,” she said. Sunday pasta was a strong tradition among these families. “There was tomato sauce here but it was just tomato sauce for your fish and chips. The sauce was vital for the macaroni,” Nina said. The macaroni itself had to be imported from Australia which Nina remembered arriving in long boxes, four times the length of spaghetti. She would spend Sundays pulling it out of the boxes and breaking it into macaroni-sized pieces.

but will look to build on the solid performance and get all three points away at North Wellington on the weekend. Club president Shane Kinley said despite the results for Island Bay’s top men’s teams, the weekend was a great success with the women’s teams having a clean sweep of three wins on Sunday, and the clubroom was full of positivity, coffee by Supreme and craft beer on tap from new sponsor Sprig and Fern.  Island Bay are still looking for a game day manager to help out. For more information head to the club’s Facebook page or head along to their next game at Wakefield Park on Good Friday to introduce yourself to Mick.

Softballers shine at annual tournament By Emma McAuliffe

Intermediate students gave softball a go last week at an annual tournament. The tournament held at Kilbirnie Park on Friday featured four schools in the area- Evans bay Intermediate, St Patrick’s Primary School, Hataitai School and South Wellington Intermediate School. Organiser Kat Grooby said the tournament had been held the past four years. “The kids played softball, slow pitch and t-ball. It caters for all the kids, ones that may not have played softball before,” she said. Kat said the tournament was organised alongside Wellington Softball’s Kylie Summer and used student volunteers from Rongotai College and Wellington East Girls College. Evans Bay Intermediate won the tournament for the fourth time on Friday with their team, KFC, taking home the trophy.

The records Taylor made for the Kane Train

The winning team.

A fantastic fortnight for football in Wellington It’s been a massive few weeks for football in the capital with the game on a roll from grassroots to international level. Over 10,000 people were at Westpac Stadium to see the All Whites defeat Fiji 2-0. This cements a place in the final of OFC Stage 3 qualifying for the 2018 FIFA World Cup. The All Whites will now play the winner of Group B in a home-and-away play-off between August 28 and September 5 for a place in the intercontinental play-off against the fifth-placed South American team. Last Saturday also saw the local club season commence, with thousands of junior players taking the field in early


morning starts. The growth of junior football in Wellington continues and has been a shining light in the game in New Zealand. On Sunday, Team Wellington took on perennial favourites Auckland City in the final of the Stirling Sports Premiership in Auckland in a repeat of last years Grand Final. A committed and cohesive capital side emerged worthy 2-1 winners to follow up last year’s victory, capping off a fine year for new coach Jose Figueira. The last two weeks has also seen a remarkable turnaround in the fortunes of the Wellington Phoenix. After demolishing Newcastle Jets 5-0 at Westpac Stadium, with seven

players away on All Whites duty, the team then travelled to second-placed Melbourne Victory where few gave Wellington much of a chance. What followed was a tremendous 3-0 away win, inspired by a lovely Roly Bonevacia double strike and a late Shane Smeltz goal. This Saturday the Phoenix host the recently-announced Hyundai A-League Premiers Sydney FC at Westpac Stadium at 7.35 pm. A win keeps the Phoenix in the hunt for playoff spots – so there is plenty at stake. Kids go free this Saturday so tell your neighbours and your friends to make a real day of it and come roar on the Phoenix! PBA

In a perfect world it would be nice for Ross Taylor to beat his late mentor Martin Crowe’s New Zealand record of 17 test centuries but it’s likely the Kane Train will steamroll that before the chance is there. Williamson, now the undisputed leader of the Black Caps, equalled Martin’s mark with a stellar century against South Africa to close the home summer. At 26, Kane is the youngest Kiwi ever to score 5000 test runs and with potentially another decade to go, it appears all sorts of batting records will be his before it is said and done. He also won back-to-back Sir Richard Hadlee Medals for the best New Zealand cricketer. Taylor, who’s been out with leg issues, is on 16 test centuries. While his body is starting to slow, his form over the past two seasons has been stunning.

The Taylor/Williamson duo in the heart of the batting order has kept New Zealand more than competitive in a time where there are plenty of holes to patch up. New Zealand is missing a genuine all-rounder. James Neesham has failed in the role, Corey Anderson is constantly doing a Jacob Oram impersonation (being forever injured) and while Mitch Santner’s spin bowling has improved, his batting has regressed. Henry Nicholls is still an unproven commodity at No 5 also. There have been pluses. Neil Wagner has been a star with the ball. His constant hustle and desire has willed wickets his way. Had it not been for a rained out final day, which cost New Zealand a drawn test series against South Africa, New Zealand could be well satisfied with their summer’s work.
