A bold shave By Julia Czerwonatis

Newlands College students kicked off this year’s Shave for a Cure event at their school with an auction that raised $6,000 for cancer patients. Despite cold temperatures, eight students and one teacher

decided to go bald this winter to donate money for a good cause. Students gathered last Friday in the Newlands College Hall bidding their money to win the chance to shave off their classmates’ hair. Continued on page 2.

Newlands College students shave their heads for charity Continued from page 1. Tiarne Southon was the first to receive a new haircut. “I’ve seen so many people in the years before me doing it, but I have never had the guts to join before,” she said. After one of her fellow students had a first go on her hair, professional hairdresser Morgan MacDonald from Salon Savoy in Tawa gave Tiarne a smooth shave. “It’s an awesome initiative; I’m not sure I could do it,” Morgan said. Tiarne said her hair had been about half a metre long. She donated it to Happy Hair who make wigs for cancer patients. Shave for a Cure is a nationwide programme. Shavees have been raising funds for Leukaemia and Blood Cancer New Zealand and the six Kiwis diagnosed with blood cancer or related conditions every day for the past 15 years.

This year’s $1million aim has almost been achieved. Geoff Miller was the volunteer teacher to join the Newlands College fundraiser. “The group of students that have joined and organised this year’s event is quite big in comparison to previous years,” Geoff explained. Geoff said he was a bit nervous as about half a dozen of his students had a go with his new hair cut. Michael Chang broke the record of the day raising $360 for his hair. Michael and Jess Mok, who hadn’t cut her hair for two years before having it shaved off for $350, were the initiators for this year’s event. Everyone agreed that it would take some time to get used to the bald head: “It feels like my head has become shorter,” Kyran Van Asch said. However, the organisers said the fundraiser was a success.

“The movie is for the whole family,” Novalie said. Tickets cost $25 each, and include a glass of beer or wine, or an ice cream – all proceeds would go towards the Children’s Ward. There will also be spot prizes on the night. Novalie’s mother Michelle McGuire said they would also happily accept monetary or toy donations from businesses that are interested in supporting this cause. “In return for donations, we will advertise your business, to thank you for your support, on the night.”  Please contact Novalie at novalie.mcguire@student. for details.

Acting fast for a better recovery from strokes The Wellington Northern Suburbs Stroke Club invited members and associates to a mid-winter celebration at St John’s in Johnsonville thanking the community for their support and introducing the latest developments in clinical research. Stroke field officer and event host Sue Robertson said Stroke Club was offering a place for stroke survivors to go and connect with others. “We welcome everyone in our society, this is not only a place for stroke survivors but the entire community,” Sue said.

Stroke has recently introduced their campaign FAST – face dropping, arm weakness, speech difficulty, time to call 111. With the FAST campaign, Stroke is raising awareness for signs of a stroke and explains that people who are suffering one need to act as fast as possible. The Wellington Northern Suburbs Stroke Clubs president John Brooking talked about his stroke back in 2006. “It was extremely sudden, and the recovery wasn’t easy,”

John said. “Every stroke is very complex, and they are all different from each other.” However, John said, the faster people get into the hospital when suffering a stroke, the better the recovery. Lai Kin Wong, clinical nurse and specialist at the Stroke Clinic of the Wellington Hospital, said it was important that patients get treatment within three hours after suffering a stroke. Wellington Hospital has developed a new treatment to remove clots from the brain and

will extend their stroke unit to 12 beds by the end of the year. “Strokes are part of ageing,” Lai explained. “It’s not always preventable but fit and healthy people will have a good chance of recovery.”  Stroke meets every first Wednesday of the month, 2pm at Zampelles Coffee Bar in the Johnsonville Mall, and each third Wednesday, 12.302.30pm at the Uniting Church Rooms, Dr. Taylor Terrace. Contact sueneil.robertson@ for more details.

Kindergarten retraces its origins By Julia Czerwonatis

The early childhood centre, formerly known as Paparangi Kindergarten, has changed its name to Paparārangi Kindergarten tracing back the roots of the suburb’s name. “Over the past few years the teaching team has been on a journey of finding out about the history of the land the kindergarten,” Isabel Boyd, Paparārangi Kindergarten headteacher, said. “One of the starting points for us was to research the meaning of our suburb Paparangi and the origins behind its name.” The staff team found out that the area was originally called Paparārangi, which means “range” or “ridge of hills”. It was misinterpreted as “Paparangi” when the suburb was named. Isabel said the name changing was a long process as the kindergarten staff wanted to make sure a name change was appropriate. “We connected with the local Papakainga, Ngā Hau E Whā o Paparārangi, and have been fortunate to be able to take the children up there for visits and have them experience

a Whakatau and hear local stories,” Isabel said. “As they carry the name Paparārangi we began discussions with them about the possibility of changing the name of the kindergarten to the original Paparārangi and they we very excited and supportive about the idea.” Lena Meinders, Ngā Hau E Whā o Paparārangi chairper-

son, said it was fantastic that the kindergarten has chosen to change their name. “By recognising the original name and the rightful spelling of Paparārangi, the kindergarten created an honourable relationship with the Treaty, with our Marae, and with our community,” Lena said. It would need some time to get used to the name, but

a few children have already been very conscious about the change and were embracing, Isabel said. Paparārangi Kindergarten unveiled their new name which was added to the Waharoa last Friday as part of their Matariki celebrations. “Matariki celebrates the new year, a new start, so we thought it would fit together well.”

Parent Help is looking for volunteers to join their national parental helping hotline. Volunteers would be dedicating a few hours a week or fortnight and talk to families with parenting concerns on the phone. The next training course will start at July 24.

Enrolling for election More than three million packs will be sent out this week as the Electoral Commission launches its campaign to enrol voters for the 2017 General Election. The personalised enrolment update packs are being sent to all enrolled voters and will arrive in letterboxes over the next few days. The pack includes a form setting out the individual’s current enrolment details with space to record any changes. Voters are asked to check if the details on the form are correct. If they need to be changed, voters can fill out the form that is supplied in the pack and send it back in the return envelope. If voters don’t receive a letter by Friday, it means they are not enrolled or need to update their details.  Visit or pick up an enrolment form at a post shop to enrol. You can also request a form by calling 0800 36 76 56 or by texting your name and address to 3676.  If an enrolment pack arrives this week for someone who doesn’t live at the address, it should be marked return to sender and put back in the post so the local Registrar of Electors knows the voter is no longer at that address.

Political satire on Wellington stage Election season is looming and with it comes political satire. Pinky Agnew and Lorae Parry will be bringing their successful and satirical Destination Beehive: 2017 to Circa Theatre next month to poke fun at the New Zealand elections with a bit of song and dance. The pair has previously brought politics to the stage with Destination Beehive in 2014 and The Candidate in 2005. Karori resident Carrie Green is a Toi Whakaari New Zealand Drama School alumna and will be on stage with Destination Beehive: 2017. “It is a musical that is presented as a TV show. It is in a fictional electorate called Tinakori Heights,” Carrie explained “The audience will see various politicians and MPs, some are fictional, but there are also some well-known names,”

Carrie said. “All parties will get their share on stage.” Carrie said in Wellington people were politically minded and would make a great audience. “However, Destination Beehive: 2017 is for everyone, even those who aren’t up to date with the latest developments, to come and have a laugh,” Carrie said. The actress said she loved working together with Pinky and Lorae. “It’s so motivating and inspiring to have a woman director and writer. They are two amazing

to make sense with the current political climate, Carrie said. “Political satire has slowly faded away from New Zealand TV shows and theatre stages in the recent years, however Destination Beehive in 2014 was very popular, so we hope to repeat the success.”  Destination Beehive: 2017 will be running from July 8 to August 5. Performance Times are 7.30pm from Tuesday to Saturday and 4.30pm on Sunday. Tickets are $30 to $52. To book call (04) 801 7992 or visit www.circa.

Change in career to save daughter’s preschool A snap decision to save her daughter’s preschool has led Victoria University of Wellington alumna Miranda Major to a change of career and a new qualification. Miranda, who had initially studied accounting and law at the University of Otago, said she “kind of fell into early childhood teaching” five years ago when she received an email from the former owner of Donald Street Preschool in Karori announcing that they would be closing. Miranda said the familyfriendly environment that the preschool offered was too special to pass up, so she and her husband Bruce made a quick decision. “We got the email on the Fri-

women I can look up to.” As New Zealand politics are subject to change, especially in the pre-election time, the show would also adjust

day, by Sunday we had decided to check out the property, and on the Monday we started the process of buying the preschool. “Our friends joked that buying our daughter’s preschool must mean we’re trying to win parent of the year awards.” The process was complicated by the fact that the preschool is part of a residential property. “We had to decide if the home would work for our family, as well as being sure we were fitting with the Ministry of Education’s requirements – with childcare comes regulations and policies and getting to grips with that was a learning curve,” Miranda said. Working in a preschool “sparked a passion for early

childhood” in Miranda, and she decided to pursue that with tertiary education, which has also allowed her to better support her staff. She said being able to study the diploma online was really helpful because she was able to maintain her job at Universal Pictures as well as working at the preschool. “Not only does it mean I can now step in if a teacher needs to take leave, but I also have an understanding of the theories and reasons why children do what they do. “Now, when I’m in the preschool, I see what a child does and I automatically start thinking about why they’re doing it,” Miranda explained.

It would be hard to imagine Wellington’s Hindi Radio Programme without the voice of Grenada North resident Jeff Khan. The radio broadcaster has been honoured at this year’s Absolutely Positively Wellington Awards for his radio station 105.3FM. Jeff has dedicated almost three decades of his life to broadcasting, spending much of his time in a studio passing on important national and community news to the Hindi communities in Wellington, Auckland and his native Fiji. Jeff said he loved his work for several reasons. “I enjoy music a lot. And through my job I had the chance to meet so many people.” In the 1970s Jeff joined local politics in Fiji, as a councillor and then deputy mayor of the northern Fiji town of Savusavu. But the radio waves called and he began his broadcasting career in 1988. He worked at four major radio stations there – Radio Fiji, Radio Navtarang, Radio Sargam and Radio Mirchi. He was reportedly known as the “Voice of the Nation”. Jeff moved to New Zealand in 2008 and worked for Radio Terana in Auckland before arriving in Wellington in 2010. For the past seven years, Jeff has kept his community up-to-date on current affairs, birthdays, deaths and marriages and local events. “The radio station is for everyone,” Jeff said. The community has also benefited from Jeff’s media experience in times of natural disasters, including the

2016 Kaikoura earthquake and the damage in Fiji after Cyclone Winston. Jeff was a key source of information for the community, giving live updates on air about closures, damage and civil defence information, and organising for

donations of food and clothing to be collected and sent to Fiji. When he is not in the studio, he is planning, reading the news and selecting what needs to be in his show. He also enjoys cooking, playing billiards and watching rugby.

New chiller truck for food rescue team By Julia Czerwonatis

The Wellington City Council, Foodstuffs, and Countdown have pooled together their money for a new chiller truck to support Kiwi Community Assistance (KCA) and their food rescue mission. Tracy Wellington, KCA manager and co-founder, said the chiller truck would make their work a lot easier. “We are really pleased with the chiller truck. We were using the KCA van and my private car to collect our 80 banana boxes of rescued food daily which meant a lot driving back and forth,” Tracy said. Her volunteer team picks up unwanted food (on average 450 kilos a day) from local supermarkets and food fairs each day and distributes them to various welfare organisations in the greater Wellington region that

supply families in need. “Now we can do everything in one go, which saves us a lot of time,” Tracy explained. Johnsonville Auto Super Shoppe owner Marc Blech will be donating his time and labour to servicing KCA’s new chiller truck. Councillor Iona Pannett, portfolio leader for infrastructure and sustainability, said initiatives like KCA were important for the community. “It’s good for our environment and works towards equality between citizens.” Foodstuffs’ waste minimization programme coordinator Jennifer Elliot explained Foodstuffs was very focused on reducing waste which is why they support KCA. Johnsonville Countdown manager John Angelica said reducing waste and rescuing food was absolutely the

right thing to do. “This is also about community engagement and a great thing to protect our planet,” John explained. KCA stores some of their goods in a warehouse in Grenada North, however, most of the food that Tracy and her 74 part-time volunteers are rescuing is being distributed the same day. Tracy and her husband Phil started the charity five and a half years ago from their double garage in Tawa today they are supplying 62 clients. Volunteer Wayne Ford from Ngaio has been involved with KCA for one and a half years. He will be driving the new chiller truck. “I enjoy the work because it’s for a good cause. It’s something to believe in.”  New volunteers are welcome. Contact Tracy on

RECOLLECTIONS On until 27 August 2017, Pataka Art + Museum Nearly all of Pataka's 25,000 objects are on display in two exhibitions while its storage facilities are being upgraded. Recollections features an eclectic selection of personal and household items from the early and mid-20th century, with everything from toothpaste and medical equipment to an array of vacuum cleaners, toys and old tools on display. Many of

the objects in the Recollections exhibition come from the former Porirua Museum and some have been taken out of storage for the first time since they came to Pataka in 1982. Next door is the exhibition The hoe and the hoiho in which Titahi Bay born artist Wayne Youle has put his spin on the objects out of storage, curating them to explore the idea of value.

readers have their say... Find out the WORD on the Street. Question: What do you think about New Zealand’s victory at the America’s Cup?

Deanna Sigmund, Johnsonville “I’m very stoked. I followed the cup and really enjoyed the commentating. I’m absolutely ecstatic about it.”

Belinda McMillan, Kapiti “I followed it on the radio every day when I was getting ready for work. The New Zealander boys were so humble about their win. It’s just amazing.”

Gareth Curtis, Johnsonville “I was up Tuesday morning to watch the race. I’m very happy that we have won.”

David Feehan, Newlands “It’s great. It’s going to provide economic benefit for us when the cup will be held in Auckland – which is going to be good for tourism industry, our slumping boat building industry and, as a musician I know, it will provide jobs for artists.”

Peter Luke, Johnsonville “The victory is fantastic. It looked like they took it easy in the qualifiers and were at their best at the end.”

Molly Fiso, Johnsonville “It’s fantastic, I’m so proud. They have won with style. It’s an awesome day for everybody. We are so very blessed with our sportsmen in New Zealand.”

EYE ON CRIME In Johnsonville the garage of a house in Ohariu Road was broken into when an intruder jemmied the padlock securing the door. Tradesman’s power tools, a charger and batteries and an apron containing hand tools were stolen. A black Mitsubishi Outlander stationwagon parked locked on the road in Chesterton Street overnight had its right rear window smashed to gain entry. The vehicle was searched and a pair of sunglasses stolen. Also in Chesterton Street a grey Nissan

Murano stationwagon, parked locked on the road overnight, had its driver’s side window smashed to gain entry. The vehicle was searched but it is not yet known if anything was stolen. Other vehicles in this street are believed to have been interfered with during the same time frame. A brown Nissan hatchback parked locked overnight in Sunflower Way suffered a smashed front left side window. A wallet left in the vehicle, containing a driver’s licence, bank cards and cash was stolen. A pair of sunglasses was also taken.

In Newlands a new house nearing completion was broken into via a forced aluminium window at the side of the house. An oven, a vanity unit, a light fitting, paints and hand tools were stolen. In Churton Park a garden centre in Middleton Road was entered when intruders climbed over a rear fence. This entry did

not trigger the alarm. A number of bonsai trees were stolen. In Ngaio a new metal ladder, left outside the front window of a house in Motueka Street, was stolen. In Crofton Downs a number of bonsai trees, located at the rear of a house in Randolph Road, were stolen.

Northland Tunnel strengthening nearing halfway Earthquake-strengthening work on the Northland Tunnel is progressing well, with 40 percent of work now complete. New columns and a reinforced concrete beam on the Karori side of the tunnel have been constructed. Sixteen rock anchors have also been installed to secure the steep slope above the portal, and cracks in the existing retaining walls have been repaired. Wellington City Councillor Chris CalviFreeman, portfolio leader for transport strategy and operations, said work originally due to be finished by the end of June had been extended to mid-September. “The strengthening work is taking longer than expected as our engineers found variable ground conditions behind the portal walls, which needed further investigation and redesign. “The limited availability of specialist

subcontractors following the Kaikoura earthquake led to more delays,” Mr CalviFreeman said. “We’ve got extra resources now and expect to complete work by mid-September.” The tunnel was built in 1927 and is listed as a heritage structure; all changes will be in keeping with the existing design. The work will make the tunnel’s portals and adjacent retaining walls stronger and more resilient, similar to the works carried out on the Hataitai bus tunnel and the Karori Tunnel in recent years. Work hours are Monday to Saturday, 7am to 6pm. The tunnel will operate in both directions but will be reduced to one lane at times during the day. During working hours, members of the public are asked to park outside the construction area.

Newlands College students had the hockey sticks ready to test their new artificial turf after its ceremonial blessing last Wednesday. The artificial turf has been two and a half years in the making and will now give school teams and teams from the northern community the opportunity to practise. “It’s a multi-use turf with a hockey fibre,” Phil Lewis, managing director of Team Sports Surfaces that laid out the turf,


explained. “It is suitable for various kinds of sports – netball, football, hockey. There’s less sand on the surface which makes it also suitable for tennis. “It’s also designed to be less slippery which is important for the Wellington climate.” Wellington Mayor Justin Lester said the project was a huge commitment of the school in behalf of the community. “The northern community is lacking recreational facilities as the area had been underinvested in the last 30 years,” Mr Lester

said. Sponsors, including Newlands College Board of Trustees, Lotteries Communities Facilities Fund, Johnsonville Charitable Trust, Pelorus Trust, Infinity Foundation, NZ Community Trust, and Northern Suburbs Netball, invested half a million dollar in the new facility. Floodlights are expected to be installed soon so that teams won’t have a problem training in the dark winter months. Graham Witt, director of sport, said hockey was becoming more popular at Newlands College.

With Big Buddy Allan Johnson Khandallah local Allan Johnson runs a consultancy business assisting clients with payrolls. He collaborates with contractors on projects and has recently joined the co-working space SubUrban. But more than that Allan dedicates a lot of his time to the community. For the third year in a row Allan will be the Johnsonville Mall Father Christmas, and his currently planning a new charity project for the northern suburbs. The Independent Herald talked with Allan about a matter close to his heart, the Big Buddy programme in Wellington.

What do you do with your little buddies?

Big Buddy is a nationwide programme and started in Wellington about 10 years ago. I have been involved for over nine years now. It’s an organisation for boys that have very little or no contact with their fathers. We give those boys a male role model to help him in the process of growing up. We don’t replace the father, we are a big buddy, kin or a mentor – the organisation prefers not to get involved if the boy’s father is around. Mothers enrol their children to the programme, and as their big buddies, we meet the

July 9th - 16th

By Julia Czerwonatis

boys once a week for one-on-one activities.

What is the Big Buddy programme about?

“We hope the new turf will encourage more students to engage in sport activities, and also to get them active outside the PE classes, during lunchtime for instance,” Graham said. “It’s such a big space so it’s not only meant for our school but for everyone who wants to come here to train.” Newlands College head boy Ben Murdoch was at the opening too and said students were excited about their new artificial turf. “We have got so many sport teams, this is a real boost for the school,” Ben said.

It can be anything that the boy is interested in such as building projects, climbing, go-cart – about a hundred different things. We go bowling, do one of the many walks in Wellington and any sort sport.

Can you tell us about your experiences as a big buddy? I was associated with my first little buddy for seven years. His father had died, so it was important for him to have someone – not to replace his father but to keep the memory of his father alive. As big buddies, we form a trusting bond and ensure that we are a consistent part of that boy’s

life. That means setting a time each week, turning up on time, being encouraging and supportive during our time together, and trying to help them moving forward. We try to answer all questions from our little buddies that they maybe would seek from a male role model but not ask their mothers. With my second buddy, I’m in my second year. He lives with his grandmother and has little or no contact with his mother and no contact with his father. Last weekend we went on the ferry to Somes Island and had some ice cream at Eastbourne.

What happened with your first buddy? He has moved on. When he was 17, he attained an apprenticeship. The success of him achieving it was down to a very supportive mother and fam-

ily, his attitude and I hope my encouragement. I have nothing but admiration and respect for what he has achieved as a young man.

So how do people become big buddies? The process of getting involved as a Big Buddy takes about five months. You have to go through interview panels, professional assessment, and reference assortment to ensure that the people are genuinely interested in a medium to a longterm commitment in someone else’s life which is important because you can’t just give it a go for three weeks and then quit. I’m the longest serving big buddy in Wellington and very proud of my association with the organisation that adds value to the boys' lives. I think I have learned to value family and that not everybody’s family is the same.

Beethoven, Czerny and Schumann at Paekakariki Mulled Wine Concerts, Paekakariki’s elegant music series has announced that its July concert will feature the Iota Piano Quintet on 16 July at the Memorial Hall in Paekakariki. Iota performs music by Czerny - his arrangement of Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 2; Beethoven’s String Trio in D, Op.9 No. 2; and Schumann - Piano Quintet in E flat, Op. 44. The Paekakariki Memorial Hall is loved by musicians and audiences alike for its acoustics, beach-front location, stunning views and easy parking.

Paekakariki’s Mulled Wine Concert series has been presenting classical music events on the Kapiti Coast for over ten years and with the organiser’s dedication to high-quality music, has become established as a significant part of the Kapiti music scene. International pianist and Mulled Wine Concert organiser, Mary Gow, says “audiences appreciate the very moderate costs of the events, the friendly intimacy and the close contact with the performers encouraged by the venue”. In keeping with the family-friendly aspect, children under the age of 14 are invited free for this concert.

Tuatara needs you! Like any experiment, some work and some don’t. Trying new ingredients, deciding what base beer to use to bring out desired flavours – a lager, a scotch ale, is the essence of craft. ‘While most drink Tuatara beer off the shelf or as a pint at the pub, they don’t taste the trial brews’ says Tuatara Tasting Room Manager, Corey Taylor. We’re fortunate to have a trial brewery at The Third Eye in Wellington. The kegs are poured there, at the brewery tasting room or popular events such as Beervana. We rely massively


on feedback from customers to determine if the beer is right or needs tweaking. Our GnT Kettle Sour released over summer, started life at Beervana and proved really popular. At the moment we’ve got a crab bisque pale ale (Kapiti coast crabs of course!), a coffee lager, a union between Mojo coffee and Tuatara! Feedback is that it is seriously good! Think you can help Tuatara out? Go visit our brewery tasting room!

Owners Jan and Wilf Wright’s mutual interest in natural history became an environment that children found stimulating and rewarding. They created a wilderness garden that has the character of a rainforest, where there are no distinct boundaries between buildings and trees, one encroaching on the other. At this time of the year many of the animals will be in the ‘home’ paddocks.

Real Estate still hot on the Coast Now that the long-awaited Expressway is now open feedback has been generally positive from locals and visitors alike. Transmission Gully is well underway, with projected completion in 2020 and buyers have seen the bigger picture so are serious about living and purchasing on the Kapiti Coast. The past year has been very active with out of town buyers purchasing - coming from all around New Zealand and many Kiwis returning from overseas to settle in “paradise”. These out of town buyers have resulted in a serious shortage of stock, creating the highest increase in sale prices that has been seen for a very long time. Current stock levels are sitting at around only 200 listings covering Paekakariki to Otaki. This has resulted in larger numbers viewing through private

Ceinwen Howard and Marianne Tavenier, Directors of Tavenier Howard Realty, say their company has never sold properties based on Rateable Values and as these are from August 2014 those RVs are not indicative of market value. Quotable Value Limited is assessing the new RVs and these will be available from August 2017. The sales generated through Tavenier Howard and Co Realty over the past 12 months have seen the sale prices achieving between 45-65% over the 2014 RV’s.

OUT& Rockquest about gets crowds PHOTOS: DAN TAYLOR

Masterplan accepting the Peoples choice award.

Masterplan - Liam Kendrew


Indie rock band Retrospect from Onslow College won the Wellington regional final of Smokefree Rockquest 2017 in front of a crowd of over 350 at the Wellington Opera House last Friday. Guitarist Ian Moore puts the band’s win down to a lot of practice. “We were quite tight and had great vocals, we were really energetic on stage and we had heaps of fun. We just wanted to go out there and have a good time,” he said. “It was our last Smokefree Rockquest so we really wanted to make the most of it. There were so many great bands and the competition was high.” The other members of Retrospect are Raquel Abolins-Reid (vocals), Anna Van Gorp (vocals), George Whiteley

(drums), Evan Oijordsbakken (bass), and Felix Mendonca (guitar). Masterplan from Newlands College claimed the People’s Choice Award, based on votes via text messaging on the night. The five piece band took to the stage in matching black blazers. Their lineup of Milan Singh (guitar), Matt Jay (drums), Kyran Van Asch (vocals), Liam Kendrew (keyboard & bass) and Jason Vinod (guitar) were clearly a crowd favourite. They were ecstatic to receive the award. “We played at a sold out school production called Rock of Ages which was how we got into the heats of Rockquest. That meant we had to write another song within a week,” Kyran said.

‘I was working with a really skilled crew who helped me find my way’

Peggy Taylor (right) said she had a supportive husband and children who help to make it work at home. PHOTO: Supplied


pe x E e h t Call


fie r i e h t n ts i

After thinking about volunteering for Wellington Free Ambulance, Ngaio local Peggy Taylor finally made the plunge a year ago and now balances her role as a volunteer, mother and fulltime worker. “It’s something that I have wanted to do for a long time. But for one reason or another I was always putting it off.” Initially, Peggy was worried she wouldn’t have the skills to do the job well. “I still remember how nervous I was putting on the uniform for the first time and thinking about what it means to be wearing the greens.” Peggy recalled her first volunteer shift vividly; it was a Hurricanes game at Westpac Stadium. “My first impression was how supportive the team of volunteers was. I was working with a really skilled crew who helped me find my way and build my confidence.” Now stadium events form a regular part of her volunteering. Each month Peggy gives up

10 hours of her time, and more when she can, fitting her hours in around her busy role as a senior product manager and mother. “I used to be worried that I wouldn’t have the time to put into volunteering, nor the skills to do the job really well. “After a year I’m very proud to say that I’m one of the team making a difference in other people’s lives and wearing the green uniform with a huge amount of pride.” For Peggy volunteering is an important part of life, and can’t think of a better place to give her time. “It’s about giving back to the community and I can’t think of any better place to volunteer. “I feel privileged to work alongside the passionate people at Wellington Free who make a difference every day in the lives of people in our community.”  If you’re interested in joining the volunteer team visit www. or email for more information.


Bedwetting Solutions


Local product for successfully treating your child’s bedwetting: get started these school holidays.

For some children, night-time toilet training doesn’t come naturally so by the age of five 1 in 7 children still wet the bed. It’s not their fault and, in most cases, there is a genetic link. If your child is of school age and still regularly wets the bed they may suffer from Primary Nocturnal Enuresis (the medical term for bedwetting). PNT is usually due to a defective arousal response -the child simply does not respond to the feeling of a full bladder during sleep even though they have complete bladder control during the day. This is where a bedwetting alarm can help. A sensor, which is placed in the child’s underwear during sleep, detects when the

child starts to wet and triggers an alarm to wake them to go to the toilet. Over time, the child’s brain associates the alarm with the feeling of a full bladder during sleep and eventually they wake to this feeling before the alarm triggers. Night-time toilet training achieved! Most children will outgrow bedwetting by their teenage years but the cost to self-esteem and confidence can be high for many children. Therefore, treating bedwetting early with a DRI Sleeper® alarm manufactured by Anzacare Limited, located on the Kapiti Coast, can be a positive thing for your child. Call us on 0800 374 753, or, visit us at 13 Mahara Place, Waikanae for FREE advice and to receive a local purchase discount.

The science of hot fluids in cracked rocks Research by a Victoria University of Wellington PhD graduate has improved understanding of how underground hot fluids flow through fractured rocks, which will help in the development of geothermal energy. A study by Cécile Massiot, who graduated last month with a PhD in Geophysics, focussed on determining the nature of the cracks that control the circulation of fluids in the earth’s crust. “There are myriads of fractures underground, but a common challenge in geosciences is mapping where they are, how big they are, and which ones actually serve as pathways for fluids,” Cécile said. “Identifying the characteristics of those fractures that

guide fluids is critical for the exploration and management of geothermal renewable resources, which currently accounts for nearly a quarter of New Zealand’s electricity supply.” Cécile compared observations made at the surface of the earth where fracture systems can be seen and touched, with measurements from boreholes where data is sparse but directly representative of underground conditions. The researcher is originally from France and came to New Zealand in 2010 to work at the Institute of Geological and Nuclear Sciences (GNS Science). For her research Cécile looked at the fracture systems in volcanic rocks found at an Alpine Fault on the West

Coast, Mount Ruapehu and the Rotokawa Geothermal Field near Taupo. “We’ve known for some time that current tectonic forces acting on New Zealand control the underground fracture systems,” Cécile said. “My results show that, in addition, the original fracture networks that formed within lava as it cooled at the earth’s surface millions of years ago, now also control the architecture of fracture systems steering geothermal fluids. “These findings will improve the use of geothermal resources, in New Zealand and overseas, and help us to better understand pressure and temperature conditions in conventional geothermal settings such as those near Taupo, and unconventional geothermal settings.”

Victoria University graduate Cécile Massiot had a closer look at the volcanic areas in New Zealand to develop an idea about how to use geothermal energy in the future. PHOTO: Supplied

Did you know that every night as many as up to one third of the adult population may have problems getting to sleep or staying asleep? Half of these problems can be due to specific sleep disorders or problems, but the remainder seem to be from poor sleep habits or rather the things that we do that don’t help us to get to sleep. If we don’t get enough sleep we can be moody, have poor concentration, memory and reaction times. Sleep restores our bodies and minds and allows them to maintain normal functioning during waking hours. So, it pays to ensure we get enough sleep, and on a regular basis. But how, especially if we have lost the knack for getting off to sleep, or staying asleep, or both? Self Care pharmacists have a few tips to help you develop good sleeping habits. For starters, if sleep does not come after about 20 minutes, then get out of bed and do something else. Don’t lie there tossing and turning, in a panic because you cannot sleep. If you have problems sleeping on a regular basis, and you are unable to go to sleep or stay asleep (insomnia), then keep the bedroom only for sleeping. Don’t watch TV in bed, or do work in the bedroom, if sleep eludes you. And don’t stay in bed reading or generally lying in. Your mind and body need to know that “bed means sleep”, and nothing else. Keeping to this policy, and being consistent about the time

you go to bed and wake up, can bring about improvements in sleep patterns. Sleep problems can be caused by a number of things: • temperature of the room is too hot or too cold, or the room is not well ventilated • too much noise around the bedroom area • drinking too much coffee, or other beverages containing caffeine (e.g. tea and V) around bedtime • eating too much food, possibly a very big meal just before going to bed • certain medicines that can keep you awake if you take them too close to bedtime • feeling pain due to a chronic illness • using devices that produce blue light • if you take work or family/personal pressures and stresses to bed with you Trying to identify what is causing sleep problems is the first step to overcoming them. Worrying about not sleeping usually makes it worse. But remember, the amount of sleep needed varies from person to person, and generally our requirements decrease with age. Here are some things you can do to help you sleep well: • avoid naps during the day • get some exercise during the day so your body is tired and ready for rest at night. It isn’t helpful to exercise too close to bedtime either.

For all your pharmaceutical needs see our friendly teams at



at night-time avoid taking stimulant medicines (e.g. phenylephrine which is found in most cold preparations) which can keep you awake • ask your pharmacist about other medicines you are taking that might be the cause of your poor sleep • at bed-time avoid drinks that contain caffeine or drinking large quantities of fluids because of the effect on your bladder during the night • before bed-time listen to soft music or read printed books that can help you relax • reduce or limit screens with blue light • give yourself time in the evening to wind down before bed – try relaxation breathing exercises, or meditation. Sleep problems also can arise through disturbed sleep caused by heavy snoring and, at the worst end of the snoring spectrum, sleep apnoea (where the snorer stops breathing for short periods and then gasps as breath is restored – which causes sleep disturbance). Your doctor can help diagnose sleep apnoea and suggest appropriate treatment. “If these self-help suggestions do not work and you continue to have sleep problems, then it may be helpful to talk to your GP or Self Care pharmacists. Ask about the Pharmacy Self Care fact card on Sleeping Well from your Self Care pharmacist.

Yes it was competitive but only in patches and only based on this dominant period of All Black rugby. I hope the home team wins this year’s series 3-0 and I maintain that’s how it will go. The Lions had all the momentum, 70 percent of the supporters in Eden Park and they bottled their chance. The All Blacks suffered injuries to key players Ben Smith and Ryan Crotty and still won by 15 points. At some point there must be a realisation that we are witnessing the most golden of eras of New Zealand rugby.
