Kelly Ayres - top student, top mechanic Continued from page 1. The mature student was one of the top students in her class and now has her first ever full time job not far from home. However, she was initially apprehensive when she knocked on owner Phil Wyburn’s door to ask for some work experience. “I was really nervous, but I was like, yes, sweet, three month’s work experience – I was stoked.” “I never thought it was realistic, really.” She need not have worried. Phil says she’s the best apprentice he has seen in five years, and

knew after a couple of visits that she would be a solid employee. “I knew the second time she came in – her ability to learn is high,” he said. “She picked up things really quickly, she’s extremely motivated and keen to learn.” But Kelly said Phil has made it easy. “Phil is a good teacher – it’s awesome - he knows everything about everything.” After her work experience, at one day a week, she was offered a full time job and is now studying for her Level 4 certificate to be a fully qualified automotive

technician and do warrants of fitness unsupervised. Kelly says her family is looking forward to that. “They just can’t wait until I can do a warrant – maybe they think it’s going to be free,” she said. But just two years ago, when Kelly was pouring drinks in a bar part time , she would never have thought she would be on the way to becoming an automotive technician. When she found herself without a job she joked to a Work and Income case manager that she could be a mechanic.

She got some assistance from Work and Income, entered Weltec, and got more financial assistance when she started work, which she used on tools. Phil, who owns Gavin Shute Autos with his partner Sheena, has been working 12-hour days, but thanks to Kelly that has been reduced. It is Kelly’s attitude that impresses Phil. She is hard working and hasn’t missed her 8am starts once. But she will not miss her visits to Work and Income. “I don’t have to go back there again,” she said.

Local Anzac Day services ABC Audit 2012: 6,456 copies weekly Wainuiomata News The largest circulating newspaper in Wainuiomata

YOUR LOCAL NEWSPAPER

Wainuiomata will be holding two services on Anzac Day this Tuesday. While a parade and dawn service will be held at the Cenotaph, adjacent to the Lower Hutt War Memorial Library, the parade in Wainuiomata will be later that morning. The 6am Dawn Service will

be held at the Wainuiomata War Memorial in Queen Street, with a parade at 10.55am. The parade will assemble at the BP Service Station before moving onto the War Memorial for an 11am service. Services and parades will also be held at Naenae/Taita, Petone, Eastbourne and Stokes Valley.

Hutt City Mayor Ray Wallace is hoping many attend these services and says a key reason for the development of the Anzac Lawn outside the War Memorial Library, two years ago, was to make space for larger Anzac Day attendances. “The Anzac story is a deep part of us and its timeless rel-

Lousy timing to cut special needs help Wainuiomata parents raising special needs children are irate that DEA Services announced cuts to their respite care without telling them or signalling any replacement provider. DEA Services, or Intellectual Disability Empowerment in Action, is the operational arm of IHC that also provides services to those with special needs such as severe autism. It announced cuts last month, but just before Easter, Associate Health Minister Nicky Wagner announced Explore Services would take on the work. Many affected parents were not told of the changes and found out via the media after opportunity for feedback had closed. Matt and Cathy Johnston’s 9-year old son, Mitchell cannot speak, read, or write and is not toilet trained. He has epilepsy, severe autism and has a fulltime teacher-aide at Kimi Ora School. The family can get respite care and holiday programmes through DEA Services, who last month sent a letter to affected parents advising the changes and providing feedback opportunities.

But the Johnston’s were not consulted or told who would take over services. “I’m not happy at all – I was really angry,” Cathy said before Easter. “What lousy timing – during Autism Awareness month.” “I would have liked to provide feedback - but I didn’t get a chance - I want respite care.” “It’s insulting and mean spirited, and very poor strategic planning from DEA,” Matt added. On April 6, Labour MP Poto Williams tabled a letter dated April 4 from DEA Services to parents, stating that underfunding meant it could not continue to provide services. In response, Mrs Wagner said DEA Services was being irresponsible. “I am incredibly disappointed that DEA Services has been so irresponsible as to cut services without notice.” The Johnston’s didn’t get that letter either. Neither has Clare Stonyer, whose son Vinny has severe autism and is in the same class as Mitchell. He also travels to Kimi Ora school from Wainuiomata. A solo parent, Clare gets 60

days respite care each year. She was shocked to find out about the respite care cuts, and she immediately rang DEA Services. “I panicked – I rang the 0800 number and the woman couldn’t answer any of my questions. She said she`d get back to me.” “I’m so stressed about it, with-

out respite care, I`d go crazy.” Clare had to stop work in August to focus on caring for Vinny, and is now on a caregivers benefit. Messages were left with IDEAServices’ communications manager Gina Rogers last Tuesday, but were not returned.

Hutt STEMM festival celebrates and showcases regions strengths The third Hutt STEMM Festival returns next month with Hutt City Council and other local organisations preparing a wide array of events celebrating science, technology, engineering, mathematics and manufacturing - or STEMM. Highlights of this year’s festival, starting May 6 and concluding May 21, include two breakfast talks focusing on the importance of women in tech leadership, and inspiring young women to get into the tech field. These breakfasts are

organised by the council and the Ministry for Women, and feature passionate speakers, including a CEO, a Managing Director, recruitment and education experts and a special guest from NASA. The festival is held in recognition of Lower Hutt’s local industries. It has grown each year from its first iteration in 2015 and will deliver a diverse range of activities. Some will appeal to and inspire kids and their families, while others will strengthen connections between

Lower Hutt Mayor Ray Wallace says celebrating STEMM is integral to the economic future of the city. “The future is being built here in Lower Hutt. We have businesses and educators leading the nation in key fields and inspiring our young people. There are plenty of free events for students and kids, showing them how exciting the STEMM industries can be.”

inbrief news Waiting for accommodation A tetraplegic woman has been forced to wait inside her van while the Ministry of Social Development tries to find her accommodation. Hutt Valley woman Queenie Matatahi said she has been bounced back and forth between Housing New Zealand and Work and Income as she tried to find a roof over her head. “All I want is for someone to give me a break,” she said. Queenie Matatahi has spent the last two days in the van, waiting to hear if emergency housing has been found for her. Matatahi has spent the past 16 years in a wheelchair and requires 24-hour care. She also suffers from anxiety and dysreflexia, a potentially life-threatening condition that affects people with spinal cord injuries.

Teen chased in stolen car A teen chased by police in a stolen car drove over the Valley Church lawn just before a church service was about to end on Sunday. The stolen Subaru also crashed into a white hatchback parked near the church around midday, and shunted it into another car. The vehicle belonged to church goers about to come out of the service. The teen then drove off, weaving off and on the pavement and footpath and popped the car’s tyres. A witness to the police chase said church goers would have almost certainly been hit if the incident had happened minutes later. The 15-year-old driver was finally stopped by police when driving on the car’s rims along Fitzherbert Rd, and taken to hospital with moderate injuries. Police closed the road between The Strand and the Fitzherbert Rd shops after the incident and referred the teen to Youth Aid.

Arakura Kindergarten vege garden opened and blessed Teachers, children and their families gathered at Arakura Kindergarten for the official opening and blessing of Mara Kai on March 31. Mara kai is the kindergarten community’s new vegetable garden and is the culmination of six months hard work. Families joined together in October to clear rubbish from a piece of unused land and build a communal garden for the community, using timber recycled from around the kindergarten. “It was great to see everyone get behind this project and turn a bare piece of land into something productive,” Head Teacher Debbie Henderson said. Since then everybody has been nurturing the plants with families being rostered for watering duty over the Christmas break. At the opening teachers blessed the garden before leading everybody in a

waiata, including Hutt City Kindergarten management, Hutt South MP Trevor Mallard and Labour candidate Virginia Andersen. Finally the ribbon was cut and families had the opportunity to plant seedlings that the children had previously propagated. The aim of Mara Kai is to get families involved in gardening with their children, either during Kindergarten hours or on the weekend and for them to have access to fresh, organic vegetables. “For the children this is another fun way to learn about caring for Papatuanuku, plants and food.” Henderson said. In 2016 Arakura Kindergarten was awarded a Bronze Enviro Schools award and also holds a Gold Healthy Heart award, Mara kai compliments of both of these awards.

Close competition for CanSurvive By Dave Crampton

The Wellington dragon boat team of breast cancer survivors, CanSurvive, brought home silver from this year’s national championships, held in perfect conditions on Lake Karapiro during the weekend of April 8-9. The highly successful Wellington women’s team led by Lower Hutt coach Jacob de Feijter, and new team manager, paraolympic gold medalist Paula Tesoreiro, hit the line in multiple photo-finishes with their sister teams from Christchurch - Abreast of Life and Tauranga – Boobops, to take three silver and two bronze medals from the national regatta. As well as Wainuiomata, paddlers came

from all over the region and Wairarapa. Carole Rudman, one of the team’s older members, regularly goes over the Wainuiomata hill to Wellington to practice with the team. However, at Karapiro, tight competition saw Abreast of Life take a clean sweep of five gold medals across all finals to retain their national title again this year. Both Abreast of Life and CanSurvive did personal best times in all events. “We were only 0.2 seconds behind in the 500m,” Carole said, “One more quick paddle and we could have won it.” CanSurvive competed in both the 500m small boat events for 10 paddlers, gaining two teams a place in the 200m final. The women won bronze in that race.

The CanSurvive crew celebrate more success on the water. Carole Rudman is on the far left.

Carole said the teams – all consisting of breast cancer survivors - do not get much competition, but all teams are getting better. CanSurvive Chairperson Iona ElwoodSmith said it is a highly competitive sport. “We can now concentrate on improving to be the best that we can be when we compete internationally next year.” she said. While the team is heading to the Breast Cancer Paddlers Commission in Italy next

year, there is also another big competition in Auckland in two weeks. Carole is heading to the North Shore with the team on April 29 to compete at the World Masters championships, which are held every four years. The event is restricted to those aged over 50. That’s most of the team – only Iona will be missing in the boat. CanSurvive is the only breast cancer crew competing from New Zealand at the masters.

Dear Ed, To all those people who disobey road rules, it’s about time you had a refresher course how to drive properly. What part of the word STOP don’t you understand? Why not go into a Police station and ask a policeman what this word means? He

would say have you got a licence. Are you one of those who drive through a stop sign without stopping? I have seen very close calls over the years at stop and give way signs. People are so careful when they get their licence, and once they pass as full drivers they forget

the road code or don’t care to apply it. One day you may not be so lucky and you might have an encounter with a big truck. I don’t shed tears for idiots. If I used the words I was going to use for you idiots I would get told off by the police, so this is a tame ver-

sion of what I really thought due to an incident the other day when some clown in his 20’s waited until I was near The Strand intersection and pulled right out in front of me. Oh, yeah, he gave me the two-fingered salute. Immature. Peter Wells (abridged)

A multi-million-dollar makeover is under way at Enliven’s Woburn Home in Lower Hutt. The popular rest home is undergoing renovations to make it look and feel homelier than ever, including the addition of 22 en-suites, revamping lounges and dining areas, and increasing bedroom sizes. Clinical Nurse Manager Anneke Barkwith says the renovations are part of Enliven’s commitment to creating a home where elders feel ‘at home’. “Creating a really ‘domestic’ feel to the home is part of our model of care, the Eden Alternative. After all, for the elders who live here, this is their home so we don’t want it to look or feel clinical like many traditional rest home environments.” She says the current upgrade is just one of a number of initiatives underway. “We’ve already renamed the wings and lounges after streets on a Monopoly board.” The idea came from one of the home’s residents. “Now each resident room has an actual

address, for example their room could be 12 Vine Street, which brings a sense of normality to their lives,” says Anneke. “By changing the way we communicate things like that we can help change how people feel about where they live and their sense of identity. It’s brings more warmth to the home. “A lot of thought has gone into the plans and we’re really excited to see the end result!” Property manager Andrew Hemsley says a huge amount of thought and care has gone into the plans. “The project had been carefully planned and staged in such as way to ensure there’s minimal disruption to the residents,” he explains. “If fact, I think staff and residents are enjoying seeing the progress and looking forward to the end result!” PBA  For more information about Woburn Home, located at 57 Wai-iti Crescent in Lower Hutt, call 04 569 6400 or visit www. enlivencentral.org.nz.

Lest we forget

This year, New Zealand celebrates 100 years since Anzac Day was first marked in 1916. Anzac Day takes place each year on April 25 and commemorates all New Zealanders killed in war, while also honouring returned servicemen and women. April 25 marks the anniversary of the landing of New Zealand and Australian soldiers, on the Gallipoli Peninsula in 1915 and WW1 centenary commemorations began last year. The aim was to capture

the Dardanelles, the gateway to the Bosphorus and the Black Sea, however, at the end of the campaign, Gallipoli was still held by its Turkish defenders. Among those who lost their lives in the Gallipoli campaign were 2779 New Zealanders, almost one in four of those who served on Gallipoli. As always, ceremonies are held at war memorials up and down New Zealand and in places overseas where New Zealanders gather to pay tribute.

This quote made by Ataturk, a great Turkish statesman in 1934, is inscribed on the memorial at Anzac Cove, Gallipoli. It is also inscribed on the Ataturk memorial at Tarakena Bay, which is said to be similar to the coast around Gallipoli: 298 Naenae Rd, Lower Hutt Ph: 567 2565 Also at 7 Hartham Pl Sth, Porirua

Autumn is a fantastic season in the garden Autumn is a fantastic season in the garden. The air is crisp, with warm long days, perfect for the jobs that need doing following the heat of summer. Autumn is a great time for sowing a new lawn, planting trees and shrubs, and of course planting the vegetable garden for the months ahead. If you choose to rest some areas of your vegetable garden over autumn and winter, planting a green manure crop like lupin or mustard seed adds nitrogen rich organic matter back into the soil.

Harriers looking forward to winter season By Dave Crampton

Wainuiomata Athletic and Harrier Club is gearing up for another good winter season, and will host the Wellington mountain running champs and the 6km Wainuiomata Classic, both on April 29. Unlike championship events, anyone can enter the 6km event, as you don’t have to be a member of a club. Both events will take place on the hills between Wainuiomata and Lower Hutt City up above the Wainuiomata Hill Road, starting and finishing at the Parkway Playground. Entrants are encouraged to pre-enter by April 27. The club will also be entering athletes in the annual Vosseler Shield at Mt Victoria on May 20, and the 5k/10k Dorne Cup, run by Hutt Valley Harriers, at Trentham’s Memorial Park on June 10. On August 19 the club is hosting the Wellington Road

Championships off Moore’s Valley Road, with talented Wainuiomata High student Joel Carman, who came 2nd in last year’s champs and is expected to do well, as is Don McGowan who was first in his age group at champs last year. McGowan recommenced athletics aged 58 after running as a teen and joined the Wainuiomata club five years ago. He is most looking forward to the Wellington half-marathon, and the North Island cross country championships - but still enjoys beating those aged 20 years younger. “I just go for the fun of it. It’s quite good beating those young buggers,” he said. Talented cross country athlete Cameron Forsythe, 13, heads the younger local athletes. He came fourth in his grade in last year’s 3km Dorne Cup and is one of around 15 club members expected to attend the North Island championships. “He’s a very strong runner,”

Wainuiomata Harriers coach and club president Nikki Branniff-Jones said. She said the club has great potential “Many of them will get top 10 – and there’s two to three (in the club) that could medal.” “That’s pretty good for a small club.” One is Don. He was placed second at North Islands in his 65-69 age group last year. I`m aiming for a gold this year,” he said. Nikki said one of the social highlights will be a mid-winter Christmas dinner, which is also a social fund-raiser for the club. The club used to be one of the bigger ones in the Wellington region, before members left Wainuiomata as they got older, but it is now primarily focusing on cross-country and road, rather than also track and field. It is always on the lookout for new local talent. “We welcome more members -especially more kids from local schools.”

Carman medals at North Islands

Hutt sports award finalists named Two finalists with Olympic medals – Nick Willis and Mary Fisher - are amongst the Hutt Valley Sports Awards finalists, with both looking like they are in contention for the main award. Fisher won gold at the Rio Paralympics by setting a world record in the backstroke S11, whereas Willis got a bronze medal in the 1500m. There were more than 100 nomina-

tions with good representation from both Upper and Lower Hutt. The toughest category was Junior Woman, where the finalists are swimmer Chelsey Edwards, Junior White Sox captain Pallas Potter and promising runner Phoebe McKnight. The overall winner will be announced at the awards dinner at the Walter Nash Stadium on Thursday May 18.

Sports talk

When a sporting fashion statement means so much

Joel Carman heads fellow team member Jack Hammond at the North Island champs. PHOTO: Jo Murray By Dave Crampton

Wainuiomata High School’s Joel Carman achieved his aim of getting into the top three North Island Secondary School championships at Inglewood last weekend. He came second in the senior boy’s 1500m in a personal best time, followed by Jack Hammond, from Hutt Valley High, in third place. Joel clocked 4:03.17, just 0.02 seconds behind Harrison Porritt from Manawatu. Jack was not far behind, with a time of 4:04.13. in the Junior event, Hutt athlete Finn Seeds won both the 800m and 1500m, the latter more than 11 seconds ahead of his nearest rival.

Joel was part of a Wellington team that had fantastic results, Sport Development Manager Jo Murray said. Two Hutt athletes broke meet records, with Chilton St James’ Josephine Reeves clearing 1.76m in the intermediate girls high jump, and Sautisa Mita ( Upper Hutt College) did 1.85m in the junior boys high jump. However, Sautisa got a silver as another jumper broke his record shortly after. Joel is now heading into his cross country season and is aiming for a top 10 placing at the National Secondary Schools Cross Country championships which will qualify him to represent New Zealand in the national Secondary Schools team to Australia.

Here are the two sporting winners from the past week. Angela Akins and BNZ. Angela is the fiancé of the new Masters golf champion Sergio Garcia. Not only is she set to marry a man who ripped off the chokers chain that had been around his neck for almost 15 years after he won his first major in 73 attempts, she seems to have won the world over with her charm, wit and good looks. Not since Duchess Kate’s sister Pippa Middleton, has a woman endeared herself to so many people so quickly. BNZ wins by Sonny Bill Williams trying his darndest not to give them any publicity at all. The polarising part-time All Black, rugby league player, model and mediocre boxer taped over the BNZ logo on his Blues jersey collar in his return to rugby last week. Turns out his faith is against the advertising of banks and finance companies for gain. Of course, by doing this BNZ has gained more exposure than they could

have dreamed of. Who even knew the bank sponsored the collar on the jerseys? I know I didn’t. Speaking of fashion statements, isn’t it ironic that Sergio has earned millions of dollars from golf over the years but the thing he’ll be most recognised with now is a $200 green jacket which is ghastly to look at but sought after and revered by golfers all over the globe. Everyone has that one jacket in their closet which goes with nothing and therefore goes with everything. That’s the cool thing about tradition, it makes people desire things they otherwise wouldn’t normally bother with. Look at the Ashes cricket urn. It’s all of 15cm tall and looks ridiculous held aloft yet grown men want it so badly. The Indy 500 trophy has men’s faces on it. The NRL trophy is two grown men embracing. The weird and wonderful part of tradition in sport is kept alive with things like the green jacket. Long may it continue.
