Political figures visit Katherine Mansfield House Representatives of world powers agree on one thing: Katherine Mansfield is a Wellington-born writer of international significance. The wife of the Chinese Premier, Madame Cheng, visited the house during the premier’s recent visit. A literary academic herself, she was accompanied by Mary English, wife of New Zealand’s Prime Minister, and the wife of the Chinese Ambassador to New Zealand, Madame Yang Pengbo.

a well-developed appreciation and understanding of Mansfield, whose work was translated into Chinese in the 1920s, remains well read there. The Russian Ambassador to New Zealand, Mr Valery Yakolevich Tereshchenko opened the current exhibition Katherine Mansfield’s Russian Dream and said it was a fascinating exploration on the profound influence Russian writing and culture had on her. The Katherine Mansfield House and Garden is open

Tuesday to Sunday and attracts visitors from abroad, other parts of New Zealand and many Wellingtonians. School and university students studying English literature visit to add reality to their studies and experience the house which is described in one of Mansfield’s most famous stories, Prelude.  The Russian exhibition is on at the museum, based on 25 Tinakori Road, and ends after Queen’s Birthday weekend.

Onslow College students invited fellow students, teachers and people from the community to their Vegetarian and Vegan Food Fair last Friday. With homemade roasted cauliflower-chickpea salads, creamy risotto, artisan sushi and delicious lemon-coconutraspberry slices students Grace Carr, Laila Smith, Tevtia Hempel, Lise Jansen-Luke, and Lilly Moss-Baker proved that vegetarian food could taste good. “We want to encourage considering a different sort of diet,” Grace explained. “We want to break the stereotype of vegan and vegetarian food.” Grace said she felt better about eating no meat. “The dairy industry has a large

impact on our environment, especially with the methane gases that cows emit. “Students should be pushing for a healthier and more sustainable environment in New Zealand. Not eating meat is one way to make a difference,” Grace stated. Students could choose where proceeds from the fair were going to, having the choice between Forest & Bird, an environmental organisation, and Black Sheep animal welfare organisation, or Generation Zero, who work for climate change awareness. Teacher Hamish McWilliam supervised this year’s food fair that he had launched last year. “We have a great team of students running the event this year, and they seem to love it,” Hamish said.
