KPS students help pass a rugby ball around the world Continued from page 1. The ‘Pass the Ball’ activity was kicked off in June after teacher Matt Pegg proposed the idea to staff at the school in Hammersmith, London. The 18,804 passes represent the distance that the British and Irish Lions players and fans had to travel to get to New Zealand for the recent rugby games. Pegg said the community that rugby creates is talked about a lot and that Friday’s activity was tangible way for Wainuiomata students to come together with their peers overseas. “Who knows, in 12 years, when the Lions come back, our students might remember this day and the fun they had.” A commemorative ball, signed by students from Larmenier and Sacred Heart to mark the completion of their portion of the 18,804 rugby passes, was brought to Konini Primary School last week. They were welcomed into Wainuiomata with a powhiri on Friday morning. The British and Irish Lions have played nine matches on their tour of New Zealand so far – with one final test match against the All Blacks this weekend (July 8).

Warming up in Wainui ahead of winter festival The Hutt Winter Festival will put Wainuiomata on the map this month. Holy Trinity Church and Wainuiomata Library will host two events during the 10-day festival: Al Capone’s Soup Kitchen and Beats and Rhythms for Families. The festival has been championed by a number of creative Hutt-based artists and will encompass culture, lights, art and food to brighten up all corners of Lower Hutt. The pop-up soup kitchen, co-ordinated by Trish Morgan with the help of Te Rangatahi Learning Centre students, will present locals with an interesting step back

in time. Both kitchen design and characters providing the service are being based on historical research of the depression during the 1930s. Beats and Rhythms for Families on the other hand will be a practical workshop in percussion, musical counting, listening and non-verbal communication based on rhythms from around the world. Leading this event will be Andreas Lepper, an expert in percussion and Latin American/Balkan music. Both events will be held onIm going to do FREE nail art for the month of July with any Saturday, July 15.  For times, go to huttwin-GelHema Gemmell, Riko Taingahue and Wairuatupu Meihana.

Storytelling to keep children entertained over school holidays Local children are invited to journey through different aspects of storytelling during the school holidays. Beyond the Page Children and Youth Literary Festival is bringing a packed programme of more than 100 free events to inspire young people to immerse themselves in the literary world, explore their own stories and express their creativity. The festival kicks off with pancakes and poetry on July 8 where children can come along

and get expressive with words in exchange for a pancake. Beyond the Page runs from July 8-23 and is a collaboration between Hutt City, Upper Hutt City and Wellington City libraries. The aim of the programme is to immerse young people between the ages of 4 and 18-years in the world of story. All events are free, but some require registrations.  For more information, see www.beyondthepage.nz.

inbrief news Wainui pupils take the stage for Polyfest Hundreds of students from across the Hutt Valley will step up to the stage as part of Polyfest.

Wainuiomata will contribute some of the talent at this year’s Polyfest with pupils from Wainuiomata Intermediate and Fernlea School taking part.

Wellington’s coast put into a new light By Julia Czerwonatis

Hutt photographer Martin Warenczuk has launched his new photo exhibition Beautiful Landscapes of the Wellington Outdoors at the Alfred Memelink Artspace Gallery in Petone last weekend inviting locals to re-discover stunning nature in and around the capital “The exhibition covers a

long-term project photographing the Wellington region and its coastline,” Martin explained. The Poland born photographer has been discovering remote places around Wellington’s East Harbour, South and West Coast, the Kapiti Coast and South Wairarapa in the last three years capturing its rugged beauty in magnificent light settings.

“I chose this region because locals can easily connect with the places and perhaps learn to appreciate them in a new way,” Martin said. “Working outdoors means being at a place of peace, harmony and happiness to me. “While I’m out in nature observing my surroundings and the changing weather, I can easily connect to everything around me,” he said.

Ethnic business community meets in Auckland The country’s ethnically diverse business community gathered for EPIC NZ (Ethnic People in Commerce) in Auckland last week. Minister for Ethnic Communities Judith Collins was present and explained how diversity was essential for the growth of New Zealand’s businesses. EPIC NZ strengthens links between government and the ethnically diverse business community, while providing valuable insights into digital disruption, innovation, and how to succeed in an ever changing global economy. “We want to ensure all businesses have the opportunity to realise the benefits from innovation and diversity. Office of Ethnic Communities hosted the event on Friday.

Martin started his photography career when he was nine. “Our neighbour was a photographer and took me under his wings,” Martin said. “He also gave me my fi rst camera, however, he didn’t teach me how to use but rather encouraged me to develop my own technique.” Today Martin has developed a talent for bringing out vivid colours in his photography that resemble colours in a painting. In conjunction with the exhibition Martin launched his first book titled Journey Along The Coast with more than 100 photographs. It is the first one in a series of Martin’s landscape photography publications, and he has already started to work on the next book.

Lights, camera, action for Fernlea School pupils By Andre Chumko MASSEY JOURNALIST STUDENT

It was lights, camera, action for Fernlea School pupils on Monday night when they took the stage at Polyfest 2017. The festival, held at Taita’s Walter Nash Centre, runs from July 3-7 and sees 43 schools and centres from across the Hutt Valley giving 46 performances over five nights. Fernlea School is one of three Wainuiomata schools participating in the event, in addition to Wainuiomata

Intermediate School and St Claudine Thevenet School, set to perform on Thursday. Principal Tony Field said it was Fernlea School’s first time at Polyfest. “The kids have been working extremely hard. We built on a lot of years of hard work to get them to where they are now and we’re really excited about having them be part of this pretty special occasion.” Polyfest is attended by about 1200 people each night and incorporates Pasifika song and dance with kapa haka performances.

Field said the school had spent the entire year preparing for the event, holding kapa haka lessons every Friday and “polishing” sessions for the last two weeks. This year the festival was held in support of the ‘go to H20’ movement, a campaign which encouraged children to drink water instead of soft drinks. Each year about 330 children under 13 receive dental treatment while under general anaesthesia at Hutt Hospital, a figure which has increased by 60 per cent in the last 10

years. Te Awakairangi Health Network health promotion team leader Tanya Radford said how people look after their children’s teeth would affect how their teeth will be as adults. “The message is simple for families to follow, make sure baby teeth are brushed for two minutes twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste.” Field said his pupils were happy to perform for such a cause. “They’re just bubbling with excitement.”

Funding granted for Eastbourne’s MIRO Chris Bishop, National candidate for Hutt Valley was delighted that Eastbourne’s Mainland Island Restoration (MIRO) will receive a $35,000 Government grant. The grant, announced in June by Conservation Minister Maggie Barry and Associate Environment Minister Scott Simpson, will help MIRO reduce predator numbers within the Eastbourne and Eastern Bays area. “The volunteers who run MIRO do incredible work protecting our local wildlife from predators,” Bishop said. “It’s fantastic to see their hard work recognised by a significant grant. The three-year education and trap-loaning project it will fund is going to make a big difference to our local environment.” MIRO’s Sally Bain presented on the group’s predator trapping work at a meeting Bishop held late last year. Bishop said the group had a big target of having one in five households in the Bays to be actively involved in trapping rats on their properties. He also mentioned that the group was going to work with Hutt City Council to control other predators such as stoats and involve local schools through the Enviroschools programme. “The positive impact to our native birds, such as the banded dotterel, is going to be just fantastic and I think we’ll see the next generation of MIRO volunteers come out of this raring to get New Zealand to its Predator Free 2050 goal,” Bishop said.

A word from

Mayor Ray Wallace After more than 1,000 public submissions and two days of public hearings, Council last month agreed on the final shape of the 2017-2018 Annual Plan. The Annual Plan outlines the key projects and initiatives that will be delivered over the coming year and beyond. Of particular interest to Wainuiomata residents will be the commitment to fund in principle a new $7 million community hub in Wainuiomata based on a similar model to the Koraunui Stokes Valley Community Hub and Taita’s Walter Nash Centre. Council will next year as part of the Long Term Plan finalise that actual start date. A Sportsville in Wainuiomata is also one step closer, with approval to progress design and business case work this year. Sportsville projects are a partnership initiative to bring multiple sports clubs into one location, to reduce operating costs and share resource between clubs. Council for some time has been concerned at the state of the Wainuiomata Mall and has made changes to its Development Remissions Policy so that positive changes can be made by the mall owners. Recently, at the invitation of Member of Parliament Chris Bishop, I attended a meeting to discuss with Chris, the new owners and their representative. It was a very productive meeting. Watch this space. As you can see, this year’s Annual Plan continues our programme of rejuvenation and investment in infrastructure following strong community support as part of our consultation on the plan. These significant projects will stimulate long-

term economic and social growth in our city and contribute to making Lower Hutt a great place to live, work and play. Council has committed an additional $39 million to the incredibly important RiverLink project over the next fifteen years. RiverLink is a joint venture between Greater Wellington Regional Council, New Zealand Transport Agency and Hutt City Council to deliver better flood protection, lifestyle and transport links for the people of Lower Hutt. Council’s part of the project includes the development of a riverside promenade on the Hutt River to enable better connection between the CBD and Hutt River. Council has also committed to funding the refurbishment of the Rona Bay and Days Bay wharves and additional funding was approved for infrastructure work at Petone Library, Naenae Pool, the Dowse Art Museum and the Hutt Recreation Ground. All in all, a big year ahead! Until next time, take care.

Grades improving not declining

Letters on issues of community interest are welcomed. Guidelines are that they should be no longer than 150 words. They must be signed and a street address provided to show good faith, even if a nom de plume is provided for publication.

Please note that your name and street address must also be provided in e mails.

Dear editor, I was bemused to read an article in last week’s Wainuiomata News under the heading “Student Achievement”, which carried the line quoting an analyst stating that “Student achievement in Wainuiomata had been declining”. Either “fake news” is alive and well in the Nui, or the analyst has been reading our results upside down! On the High School’s website (www.wainuiomatahigh.school. nz) under the “About Us” tab there is a section headed “News”; click on our #19 – 30 June 2017

Newsletter, and you will see three graphs, prepared not by us but by the New Zealand Qualifications Authority, showing the High School’s NCEA results over the past five years – all of which have been improving. What the graphs show is a reflection of the effort we have put into place in recent years to change the culture of the High School, where academic achievement is valued and celebrated and where students are part of a vibrant and supportive school. Remember that the graphs

show averages – we are also proud of the increasing number of our students who are gaining “Excellence” or “Merit” endorsements for their NCEA qualifications – from 33 in 2014, to 44 in 2015, to 71 in 2016. Our parents are aware of some of the many strategies we have put into place to achieve this improvement in results – introducing Longer Learning Times; setting up a Manaaki Class structure which mentors and supports students; introducing PB4L; making sure we have a variety of subjects so all students

can enjoy success as they move through the school; a range of pastoral services in place to support our students; celebrating success; to name a few. Most importantly however, is an increasing belief our students are developing that they can succeed, and the increasing engagement and effort they are putting into their studies. To suggest that student achievement is declining is an insult to their efforts and aspirations. Martin Isberg Principal, Wainuiomata High School

Poor reporting on school achievement Dear Editor, Last weeks story in the Wainuiomata News about student achievement was an appalling piece of journalism. In April this year a colleague and I presented our findings about a na lysis of st udent achievement across Wainuiomata to the Community Board. Our presentation focused on two findings: 1. raising achievement across the valley is a Community problem and that schools cannot do this by themselves, and 2. raising achievement over the next 5-10 years can be the

catalyst for improving the social and economic outcomes of the people living in Wainuiomata over the next 10-20 years Our intention was to stimulate discussion about building community support for raising achievement across the valley to improve the social and economic outcomes of the people in Wainuiomata. To provide context we also presented analysis about the current levels of achievement and At Risk Children. Last weeks story did not talk about the focus of our presentation, instead the reporter chose

to focus on declining achievement and At Risk Children. We believe the reporter sought to deliberately mislead readers by focusing on negative data in our presentation and ignoring the thrust of the presentation. The reporter also said we stated that achievement was declining. This was false, we did not have the data to determine whether achievement was increasing, declining or static. The report about the number of At risk children was also wrong. The reporter approached us after our presentation indicating that he wanted to write a

story. We spoke several times in April and I suggested that he talk to the school Principals about this and stressed the need to focus on raising achievement to improve outcomes for the Wainuiomata Community. We never heard back from the reporter until last weeks story was published. Given the thrust of our presentation it is difficult to imagine what would motivate a reporter to deliberately mislead the community, and lie about what was said. It is also difficult to understand why the Wainuiomata

Brownies help puppeteer ahead of festival A puppeteer has been helping Kai Arahi Brownies get creative in Wainuiomata. Anna Bailey has been working with the group to make a large morepork/ruru puppet along with several smaller native birds for the Wild Arrivals parade at the Hutt Winter Festival –– on Saturday, July 23. Anna said the group from Kai Arahi Brownies had been working hard over the last few months to complete the project and will use the experience to get their performing arts badge. The brief for the project was to create a creature that represented their group. Kai Arahi Brownies is split into six groups, each named after a bird. Anna said the decision was made to create one of the birds as the large puppet for the festival. “It was great working with this group and the weekend workshops were especially fun when a lot of parents came along and pitched in too, adding their own skills to the mix. I think everyone was surprised

Winter Survival Tips For most people, winter means feeling wearier and less motivated than in summer, and there are more colds and flus about. So it’s important firstly to get vaccinated against the flu, which can be a severe illness for some vulnerable people. Washing hands thoroughly is also a good measure to help prevent the spread of winter illnesses. If you’re coughing and sneezing, you may be spreading germs, so consider staying away from work or school until your health improves. Babies and small children can get sick very easily if you cough and sneeze around them. Eat healthy, and exercise Eating healthy foods, including plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables, helps to build immunity. Eat lean meat and fish, and try to cut down on sugar and salt intake. Increasing exposure to light is important in winter to help with Vitamin D levels. A deficiency of Vitamin D leads to frail bones and sometimes low moods and SAD (seasonal affective disorder). Some health practitioners recommend taking a Vitamin D supplement during winter. A 30-minute walk outside each day ticks all the boxes; it gets you some fresh air, light, and exercise. Exercise is beneficial for both physical and mental wellbeing. Enjoy it! Enjoy winter as much as possible – and make an effort to connect with people. Wrap up warm and meet some friends for a walk around the neighbourhood, go to the gym, or go the library or to the movies. Getting out and about rather than staying shut inside will make the winter months easier, especially if you have a tendency to feel a bit down at this time of year.

Anna said. “The girls did a great job!”

Volunteers at Hutt Hospital were celebrated last month as National Volunteer Week (June 18-24) rolled around once again. There were several in-

dividuals honoured, this included Gwen Stapleton, who has been volunteering for six years as one of the hospital’s ‘Meet and Greet’ volunteers.

Home owners and renters happy with council’s home videos Wainuiomata is not just one of the Hutt Valley’s largest suburbs, it’s also one of the fastest growing. A reason why Hutt City Council has decided to make a range of ‘how to’ animated videos to help people understand its building and consenting processes. The short videos, dubbed Home Videos, explain topics from understanding consents, to creating warmer and healthier homes, to tips on earthquake strengthening. Divisional manager environ-

mental consents Helen Oram said about a year ago council discussed how much time officers were taking to explain building consent processes to the public. “We thought about the best way to simplify the information and in this visual world, an animated suite of short videos was created. When the quake happened, it stimulated ideas on how we could get information out about home safety as well,” Oram said. The six short videos include Upspec Your Build,

about building beyond code for better warmth, comfort and energy efficiency; and Earthquake Strengthen Your Home, about achievable ideas for home owners or renters on how they can make their home safe in an earthquake. Feedback had been good from the community, Oram said. “As a result this has freed up time for administrative processing work so we can meet consent deadlines as early as possible.” That said, Oram has greater

Notification of Aerial Control Works Application of a Vertebrate Toxic Agent Southern Rimutaka Aerial Project POSSUM CONTROL OPERATION The Greater Wellington Regional Council’s BioWorks Unit wishes to advise the public of its intention to aerially apply the toxin Sodium Fluoroacetate (1080) for the purpose of controlling possums in the Southern Rimutaka Aerial Project operational area. The operation is being undertaken on behalf of TBfree New Zealand, with support from the Department of Conservation to protect local farms from tuberculosis infection and to enhance native biodiversity. Control Area: The control area includes the Rimutaka Forest Park (RFP) and some adjoining private land, south of Wainuiomata. The northern boundary includes the Wainui Trust Boys Brigade Camp, the East Whakanui track and the Papatahi Crossing. The western boundary runs along Graces Stream, Catchpool Valley Road, southwards to highpoint 397, highpoint Boyo trig 433m and Coast Road near Plumbago Stream. The southern boundary passes through Orongorongo station. The eastern boundary runs parallel with the Rimutaka cycle trail between Turakirae Head and Corner Creek, extending northwards to Wharepapa hut. A detailed map of the treatment area may be viewed by appointment at the office of Bioworks (see below), or on line at ospri.co.nz/publications. Commencement Date: Non-toxic cereal pre-feed pellet baits have been applied in this area on 16 and 17 June. The application of cereal pellets containing 1080 will commence from 7 July 2017 onwards, providing suitable weather conditions exist. Bait Description: Toxic bait: Cereal based pellet, approximately 30mm long, dyed green with a toxic loading of 1.5g/kg Sodium Fluoroacetate (1080). Deer repellent will be applied to all 1080 baits. Precautions: The public are reminded of the danger that toxic baits and possum carcasses pose, particularly to children and dogs. Children should be kept under strict supervision in the operational area. Dogs should be kept under strict control at all times and not have access to, or be taken into the operational area as they are particularly susceptible to 1080 and poisoned carcasses. Poison warning signs will be erected at all points of public access and the public are reminded that it is an offence to remove any of these signs. Please follow instructions on the signs. Further Information: For further information about the Southern Rimutaka Aerial Project operation, please contact: BioWorks Team Leader at Greater Wellington at 34 Chapel Street, Masterton or by telephone on 0800 496 734 during normal working hours.

So dominant have the men in black been since 2011, that even their own fans would rather see a competitive match than another black wash. Saturday’s 24-21 Lions win in Wellington was ugly to watch.
