A different type of courage recognised at exhibition Continued from page 1. The exhibition follows the small minority of dissenters and the growing disillusionment of those at war and home as World War One continued. Conscription was introduced in New Zealand in 1916. Waikato iwi leaders refused to support the war, and several MPs of the newly-formed Labour Party spoke out. Over 32,000 men indicated they were not willing to serve in the military and nearly 300 were imprisoned. Of these, 14 men were forcibly dispatched to the war, with four subjected to the notorious Field Punishment No. 1. Exhibition manager Ian Wards said the museum wanted to showcase all sides of the war, including dissent. “It’s an important topic to cover as we want to cover different aspects of the war,” he said. “Those who dissented were small in number and included

people like Archibald Baxter who was quite significant. “We certainly don’t want to portray the war as glorious. “One of the things to come out of this exhibition is the dissenters were heroes in their own way.” The result is Dissent, a tenminute audio-visual show pro-
duced by Story Inc., and funded by the Lottery Grants Board. The exhibition includes a replica of the Peace Action Wellington sculpture that was placed on Wellington’s waterfront on Anzac Day 2016. Story Inc.’s James McLean said the idea was to make it “emotionally compelling”.
“We had the idea of using verbatim quotes. “We divided it to represent Maori objectors, conscientious objectors, conscription, the soldiers becoming disillusioned with the war and the attitudes changing back home.” Dissent will run until October 2017.

On board with re-usable bags Punters at Wellington’s waterfront markets were offered free reusable shopping bags as an alternative to plastic bags at the weekend, following a collaboration between the market and Wellington City Council. The council initiative was supported by the market and Boomerang Bags, as well as local schoolchildren. “Every year, New Zealand uses 1.6 billion plastic bags, and roughly 9000 tonnes of plastic waste goes into Wellington’s landfill,” Wellington City Councillor Iona Pannett
said. “This is one of the ways in which the council is helping to reduce the number of bags going to landfill.” Council’s new plastic bag free ambassadors, 10-year-olds Zack Buyck and Levi Roesch from Island Bay School, were at the stall handing out reusable bags. “There is a big problem with shops over-using plastic bags,” Levi said. “There are really cool animals dying because of them.” “We observed 110 people
came out of Island Bay New World carrying approximately 206 plastic bags in total,” Zack added. “All this in half an hour- that is 3030 people a day with an estimate of 6180 plastic bags. “That is a lot of plastic bags. Imagine all that every day – it would total 43,260 plastic bags in a week.” These efforts are a part of a wider nationwide effort to lobby Central Government on the issue of the plastic bag levy. Market organiser Fraser Ebbett said it could be a chal-
lenge trying to get vendors to go plastic free overnight, and that “collaborating with the council and community to provide the option of reusable bags is a step in the right direction”. Ms Pannett said she hoped the model would result in more markets around the city working with the council to become plastic bag free. The bags for distribution were donated by Boomerang Bags and staff from Wellington City Council who sewed bags for the event as part of their plastic-free July campaign.
50 years for congregation By Emma McAuliffe
A congregation focussing on the Niuean community of Wellington would be celebrating their 50th anniversary on
August 19 and 20. Now based at St Giles’ Church in Kilbirnie, the parish had moved across town throughout its existence after beginning in 1967, Reverend
Falkland Liuvaie said. “We moved to St James in Newtown in 1977 and then moved here in 2013,” Falkland explained. “We still haven’t found our
R e v e r e n d Fa l kland Liuvaie in the church the congregation currently calls home. PHOTO: Emma McAuliffe
permanent place. We hope this is it.” Falkland said planning for the congregation’s jubilee was already well underway. “The jubilee book is already ready for printing,” he said. “We are now concentrating on the meal. It is very important to give everyone a good feast.” He said he would like to see people from all over his community attend the celebration – even if they were not regular church goers. “We’re inviting our people who used to be involved. “Jubilee church is a day for all Niuean people to come together. If you’re Niuean, or part Niuean just come along. “The Niuean people are all a big community. That’s the nature of our church; we cater for those near and far. “We always wanted to be a hub for our people - now we are opposite the Toitu Poneke Hub and we can be.” For more information on the Jubilee and how you can get involved contact Jo Vilipaama-Mokalei at jo-kev@ paradise.net.nz

Building an ambulance together By Emma McAuliffe

campaign to buy a People’s Ambulance. This would be the first time in its 90 year history the ambulance service had fundraised with communities to purchase an ambulance. “We’re going to build an ambulance for the people by the people,” Diane said. “In 1927 the Mayor at the time was driving along Lambton Quay when he stopped to help someone. From that day on he decided ambulances in Wellington would be free. And they still are today,” she said. Wellington has the only free ambulances in the country. “We are celebrating our one of a kindness,” Diane said. Diane said the People’s Ambulance would have a special logo and would feature the names of the suburbs benefitted by Wellington Free Ambulance. She said the charity needed to raise around $200,000 to make the ambulance. For more information on The People’s Ambulance and how to get involved head to www.90years.wfa.org.nz/

A national organisation finding mentors for fatherless boys says after 20 years in the business, they are still looking for men with a kind heart rather than a saintly disposition. The message is vital for the increasingly busy Big Buddy, a charity based in Wellington, Auckland and Hamilton. The Wellington base was currently fielding increasing interest from mothers and grandmothers raising boys without a father figure and their list of available mentors was dwindling. A rea coord i nator Dave Burcher said men who could
spare a couple of hours a week to share with a “Little Buddy” should know they did not have to be perfect to pick up the phone. Laura Virgo’s nine-year-old son Jonathan was matched with his Big Buddy Kevin Stevens three years ago. She said it was important men with something positive to offer did not fear the chance to share it. “Just having a bloke in a boy’s life is good enough,” she said. “It’s a different dynamic and as much as I can provide emotionally and financially, enabling my son to become
a decent human being, there are just some perspectives, as a female, that I can’t give him. “It’s difficult to put in words but men approach things differently and that’s okay. “I’m lucky that Jonathan is a great kid anyway but it warms my heart to see how he is identifying how to be a young man because that cornerstone of his life, an adult male role model , is present on a regular basis.” Big Buddy CEO Richard Aston said once someone put themselves forward, they had a “world-class” vetting process and matching system to make sure they were dealing with
HOME SECURITY FINGERTIPS
safe, sound men. “We start with a year’s commitment – that’s a minimum – but so often this becomes a lifelong relationship,” Richard said. “It is that time spent, that willingness to be alongside boy as he becomes a man that is probably the greatest gift that our organisation channels through to these boys.” Once someone is ready to become a Big Buddy, they will meet the seven to 14-year-old boy that coordinators have worked to match them with.

Kate Olsen is looking to write about people’s experiences with flatting. PHOTO: Emma McAuliffe By Emma McAuliffe
A Newtown woman is collecting stories about flatting in Wellington and beyond. Kate Olsen said she was inspired to start writing about flatting, when she thought about her own experiences with communal housing. She said she believed it was something not studied in New Zealand previously. “I used to live in a six person flat on Ghuznee Street - my flatmate Nicky had been there for six years
and in that time she had 58 different flatmates,” Kate explained. “That flat was a pivotal flat in my life. It’s always been at the back of my mind to do something with it.” Kate said she wanted to talk to people of all ages about their flatting experiences – from flats themselves to flat cooking and even flat interviews. “I’d like to see it made into a book with different chapters and sections, maybe on things like flatmates, flat dinners, flat interviews. “I’d put in a few of my own as
well,” she said. Kate said she met her husband in the Ghuznee Street flat. “We noticed when we were flatting that it was the people who had just moved out of home for the first time could usually be the most feral. “I always used to buy food then forget it was mine- so I had to label my food so I would remember it was mine,” she said. Do you have a story about your flatting experiences to tell Kate? Get in touch with her at email@example.com

Gaining skills in the kitchen By Emma McAuliffe
Rex Hang and Tess Kiernan after Tess graduated. PHOTO: Emma McAuliffe
A partnership between Hell Pizza and Society for Intellectually Handicapped Children (IHC) has resulted in a young person gaining paid training in the kitchen at Hell Pizza Hataitai. Tess Kiernan has just finished her ‘Active in Hell’ stint at the parlour, which saw her measuring and rolling dough and spraying the pizza pans. She said she really enjoyed the six week experience. “It was really fun. My favourite part was just learning a lot
of new things, such as how to roll and weigh the dough, and the importance of being on time and keeping my uniform clean. “Hopefully this will help me get a permanent job. Working with older people is something I’d really like to do.” Hell Hataitai franchisee Rex Hang said training Tess was his first experience with the Active in HELL programme. “It was really positive - I enjoyed working with Tess. She was always on time and did what she needed to do,” he said.
“Being able to offer people an opportunity they wouldn’t normally have is also a really nice feeling. “Staff are already asking when we will get someone else in.” The ‘Active in Hell’ programme is a scheme to support youth and young adults with intellectual disabilities and enhance their job prospects. It was launched in 2013 as a joint initiative between Hell and IHC’s IDEA Services. Tess was one of 87 youths paid to train in a Hell kitchen since the programme began.
Memorial to recognise bonds of war The bond formed between Belgium and New Zealand during World War One was recognised on Friday with two special ceremonies at Pukeahu National War Memorial Park in Mt Cook. Outgoing Belgian Ambassador Jean-Luc Bodson broke the ground for a new Belgian Memorial to be built in the park and unveiled in October this year, and unveiled a model of the memorial to be on display until October at The Great War Exhibition. Mr Bodson said he was pleased to acknowledge the close ties between Belgium and New Zealand. “The battlefields of World War One created lasting bonds between Belgium and New Zealand and commemorations like these help reinforce this friendship,” he said. “The Belgian people will forever be grateful for the inconceivable sacrifices that were made by the New Zea-

landers, here and on the battle front. “Let me assure you that these sacrifices are not and will not be forgotten. “This travelling exhibition gives an insight into the landscape, the history and the ceremonies in Belgium and shows how the Great War is remembered in Belgium today.” Ministry of Culture and Heritage manager heritage projects Brodie Stubbs said New Zealand had strong and warm relations with a number of communities in Belgium. “World War One brought New Zealand and Belgian soldiers and communities together for a common cause,” Brodie said. “This memorial recognises the shared losses. Its presence at Pukeahu is a symbol of that loss but also the ongoing relationship with Belgium.” The Belgian memorial would be one of six in Pukeahu.

Shakespeare Globe Centre New Zealand will be presenting its annual National Shakespeare Schools Production for 2017 in Strathmore Park in the first week of October. The production is a week-long theatre intensive work shop especially devised for Shakespearean devotees enabling students from all 24 regions to learn more about the bard and his works; familiarise themselves with the ins and outs of the theatre; hone their theatre and film and gain lifelong lessons. Among these skills are public speaking, teamwork, self-confidence, time-management and independence. This will be the 22nd National Shakespeare Schools Production, which was established in 1996, five years after the organisation itself. Each year 48 students attend, most of which were selected from the Shakespeare Globe Centre New Zealand University of Otago Sheilah Winn Shakespeare Festival, held earlier in the year. From this group of 24 will be picked to travel to Shakespeare’s Globe in London, an opportunity that has been
available through the organisation since Sam Wanamaker reconstructed the theatre near its original 17th Century site on the River Thames in 1997. National Shakespeare School’s Production will be held at Scots College in Strathmore Park and the performances would take place in early October. Performances are open to the public on both Saturday, October 7 and Sunday, October 8. Audiences could expect to see both the classics and plays performed less often as all three directors have chosen different plays to stage. Peter Hambleton would be directing The Comedy of Errors, Robin Payne, The Winter’s Tale, and Eleanor Bishop, The Taming of the Shrew. Student Flynn Mehlhopt said he was excited for the opportunity. “I am so excited about the opportunity and can’t wait to get down there and work. “I had a blast performing in Wellington and met so many awesome people. It has been an absolute highlight [of] my last year at school.”

It’s a dog life for an actor By Emma McAuliffe
A Newtown actor will be putting his paws to work next week as he takes to the stage as a dog. Greg Robins will be one of five actors playing dual roles in Gary Henderson’s Peninsula to be staged by Wellington Repertory Theatre. The play is set in Duvauchelle Bay, Banks Peninsula, in the summer of 1964, and captures the magic of a rural New Zealand childhood of the time. It transcends its specific time and location and examines themes, still topical today, of bullying, domestic violence, infidelity, small-town attitudes, gossip and prejudice. Greg said he was looking forward to playing the both the dog and the teacher, a man new to town. The characterisation of the dog, however, proved to be more challenging. “It’s pretty odd playing a dog,” he said. “I’ve had to look up videos of dogs on YouTube and I’ve looked at my friend’s dog. “It’s not the easiest thing to do; you just have to think about what a dog is doing and thinking. “When you’re an actor playing a human you have to react to what the other people are doing on stage, but when you’re a dog you can just do your own thing. It’s quite liberating.” Greg said this was his first play
Slip in Vogeltown A large slip closed Balfour Street in Vogeltown to traffic on Tuesday morning. The slip closed both lanes of Balfour Street.

Real Issues and strange bedfellows Dear Editor, I never though that Richard Keller and I would both write to agree on any issue but the deception and obfuscation conducted by the Greater Wellington Regional Council certainly creates unlikely bedfellows! On the one hand I am concerned about the almost total lack of Consultation regarding the proposed new Bus

Services about to be inflicted upon us by stealth. On the other, Richard is equally concerned about the effects of the proposal and the total disconnect between the Councillors’ so called ‘Green’ credentials and their bloody minded insistence in removing pollution-free Trolley Buses before they have a proven operator of a suitable alternative! At the same time
they plan to throw a proven operator and our dedicated, experienced Bus Drivers on to the scrap heap as well as creating total confusion amongst the users As to scrap heaps, maybe the Councillors shoud be thrown there and make way for a Commissioner to sort this mess out. Tony Sutcliffe Strathmore Park
Drawing a line in the sand Dear Editor, This expression is gaining inroads in our vocabulary and especially in lead-up to the election will be (ab)used repeatedly by politicians and reporters. While it obviously intends to make a definite, stable and unvarying stand it really means the
opposite. Any line on the sand will only last till the next tide, can be erased by a branch and redrawn by any child. Is this just an alternative truth, or just sloppy and incorrect use of the English language? Paul Franken Strathmore Park
Bus Hubs Dear Editor, It’s a great pity that some who chose to criticise don’t check the facts before they do so. The criticism, was levelled at the perceived lack of notification (CSN Jul 20). Recently the Miramar/Maupuia Progressive Association (M/MPA), in consultation with the Seatoun & Bays and the Strathmore Park Progressive and Beautifying Associations, ran an informal ‘public’ meeting for those interested in the proposed Kilbirnie bus hub. For the record - Greater Wellington Regional Council notified the consultation period for input into this – noting information was available from the Ruth Gotlieb Library (KIlbirnie), on a website or via telephone contact (CSN Jun 29). The M/MPA itself dropped flyers around the shopping areas of
Miramar, Seatoun and Strathmore Park as well as in the “Public Notices’ stand in Miramar Avenue. This was done a few days prior to its meeting. It also arranged for a brief item in the CSN July 6. What was not done was a letterbox drop to the 7,000 estimated households in the aforementioned suburbs (which would have been a costly exercise just to duplicate a notice yet alone deliver same) or radio advertising. Incidentally the M/ MPA made a number of verbal and written comments, on bus routes, at different venues prior to the bus hub options being put out for public comment. Robin Boldarin Chair Miramar/Maupuia Progressive Association
Confused not Dear Editor, In reply to one H Westfold July 13 I’m not confused at all but I am struggling in old age with bi focals as in Samuel 10:27 “I will make a treaty with you only on the condition that I gouge out the right eye”....or maybe the reference is 10:66 as in Hebrew “Bulls and goats help to take away the sins!” With all the angst in the world you can see why I have
taken to the Quran. But when I hear the Island Bay Cycle way model is going to be trusted upon Miramar even I wonder that Samuel 10:26 may be relevant as in “Looking for the donkeys...” I still would love to hear Mr Westfolds take on this Shelly Bay fiasco! Rose Wu Kilbirnie

Geoff day is looking for a location to start a band school in the southern and eastern suburbs. PHOTO: Emma McAuliffe By Emma McAuliffe
A Lyall Bay musician is looking for a place in the southern and eastern suburbs to start a band school. Geoff Day, who runs the Rock Academy out of his living room in his home, said he was looking for something bigger to teach children music and let them experience being in a band. He said he was inspired to look into starting a band school when he realised there was nothing like it in Wellington. “I just put an email out to a third of my database and we’ve got two full bands of interested kids alreadythat’s with five children per band,” he said. “That’s all we can do at the moment.
“We’re interested in running every afternoon after school- that would be great.” Geoff said a space around the same size as a double garage would fit the bill perfectly. He said he had always had an interest in bands and frequently put on shows when he was younger. “I’m currently a full time music teacher. “I’ve had kids get into the finals of Smokefree Rockquest; to get more kids competing would be great. “I’ve coached bands at the Seatoun School Band, Wellesley College in Eastbourne and at Kilbirnie School,” he said. In the meantime, Geoff would continue to run his after school and school holiday programme teaching
children to sing, play guitar and play the keyboard. “We take the kids busking, the kids on keys go on battery power keyboards so they don’t miss out,” he said. “Band school would really get kids into music and get them to meet kindred spirits. “It’s amazing watching them be around the others. “They really get to see other people working in the industry. “They get to go busking for the first time and we also train them to do auditions.” If you know of a location Geoff could use, or want to know more about his idea for a band school get in touch on firstname.lastname@example.org

Skip Ahead and make your mark online Musikgarten classes give children the gift of active music making
The Candle Wasters were funded last year. PHOTO: Supplied.
Locals with a passion for being the next big thing on the web are being encouraged to apply for Skip Ahead funding. Aspiring storytellers from Wellington can apply for a share of a new joint $300,000 Skip Ahead fund to help develop and launch original web series. Google and NZ On Air have teamed up to provide $150,000 each to create the fund, with applications opening last week. In addition to receiving funding, the successful applicants would attend skills development workshops to help them create high quality, narrative driven web series. Local web series developers, The
Candle Wasters were recipients of the funding last year and were now using it to create their latest series, Happy Playland. The Candle Wasters found success with their web series based on William Shakespeare plays- Nothing Much to Do, Lovely Little Losers and Bright Summer Night. Member of The Candle Wasters, Robbie Nicol, said their latest series due in August would be a musical based in a children’s Playland with themes around queerness and mental illness. “The Skip Ahead funding was great because it meant we were able to bring in local musicians and create a musical. “We’ve been able to make these awesome original songs too.
“It’s been great having creative freedom, there are only so many options when you are creating something normally,” he said. Robbie said he had been a children’s entertainer himself in the past. “I’ve been a child book warmer before and sometimes it’s great because you are doing your craft… but sometimes it’s kids vomiting. “The show has great juxtaposition of this kind of American comedy with deadpan British comedy where people are working in an environment that’s not always great to work in,” he said. For more information about the Skip Ahead funding, visit the NZ On Air website. Applications are open until August 10.
or 60 minutes, depending on the curriculum, using carricula especially designed for each age group. The Musikgarten experience is broad based and is not performance oriented. Our focus is not to make concert pianists or opera singers, but to help children learn to enjoy music. Musikgarten classes are fun, giving children the gift of active music making and holistic development.

Internationally renowned early childhood music educator Lorna Lutz Heyge, Ph.D. and Audrey Sillick, Montessori pioneer, created Musikgarten to provide the highest quality music education programmes possible for children and their families. Lorna has been developing music programmes for over 40 years, and her works are used by thousands of teachers in the United States, Canada, Western Europe and Asia. Her philosophy is based on the belief that every child has a musical talent and the birthright to learn to use it. She has stated: “While educational leaders turn to early childhood music because it promotes brain development, they will stay with music because of the joy and stimulation experienced in actual music making. Music learning requires total involvement; that is why it appeals so much to young children!” The preschool Musikgarten classes meet weekly for 30, 45

Back to school buzz By Emma McAuliffe Thousands of children packed their bags on Monday and headed back to school after a two week break. Term three started at the beginning of the week and three year seven students at St Anthony’s School in Seatoun are excited to be back, despite having a great holiday. Lucca Bridgman, Devlin Crang and Sophie Crombie would be heading to school camp for the first time later this term and the trio were buzzing with excitement. “We take the ferry down to Nelson and go to Tea Pot Valley. We’ll be going skiing,” Sophie said. “We’re not really sure what else we will be doing,” Lucca added.
“We have a rule that what happens on camp stays on camp. We’ll be doing abseiling too though. “It sounds so fun.” The trio would also be learning about water and safety this term. “We’re having a police officer come into our school to talk to us about safety and social media and not being peer pressured,” Devlin said. “We’re also learning about water steam and ice. “Caring for our common home is something we’ve ben learning about throughout the year. “We’ve done the beach, pollution and now water.” Term three finishes on September 27. The school year should finish no later than Friday, December 20 for primary school students.

Two decades of dance towards main role Te Aro resident, Banu Sivanantharajah has been dancing for over 20 years and this year is one of the main performers in the upcoming production of Kartikeya by Mudra Dance Company. The show, directed by Vivek Kinra would be performed in early August. The show follows the deity, Kartikeya, the younger son of god Shiva, who is the beloved deity of the Tamil people. There is no village in south India, however small, which does not possess a shrine to this powerful deity. Banu is welcoming the opportunity to perform and is working hard towards the show. “The thing I love about Bharathanatyam dance is mixture of beautiful movements with story-telling, and the marriage of the fast and sharp movements with the slow and graceful,” she said. “I want to keep dancing and keep learning.

Thrower of the year grabs Oceania javelin title By Julia Czerwonatis
Wellington College Student Cam Robinson “has had a spectacular first season with the javelin,” Jo Murray, sport development manager for Athletics Wellington, said. The seventeen-year-old entered the Oceania Area Championships at Suva, Fiji, last month and won the U18 comfortably with a throw of 63.03 metres. “Javelin is harder than people think it is when you start out, but he has picked it up with ease. To achieve what he has so early on in his athletics career is outstanding,” Jo explained. Cam was entered in the open Men’s too and came seventh with a throw of 57 metres. “It was an awesome trip,”
Cam said. Competing in Fiji was a different kind of experience for him having to throw in the Fijian heat. “The run-up was a bit short, too which was quite challenging. And it was pretty windy but coming from Wellington I’m used to it,” Cam said. Cam knew he was competing against strong athletes and said he was a bit nervous leading up to the championships. “Then I watched the first thrower, and I thought ‘I can beat this guy’,” Cam said. Cam used to play cricket up until recently and started to train javelin last year. “I had enough of standing outside in the rain, and I was always quite good at throwing, so I gave javelin a go.” Cam proved to be more than “quite good at throw-
ing” – this year he won also won the National U18 title and the Athletics Wellington Throwers Award at the annual Athletics Wellington prizegiving. “It’s quite an achievement when he’s so new to the sport,” Jo said. “He is consistently throwing over 60 metres. He is loving his new found sport, has a great attitude and wants to give it everything, so he’s an exciting young talent for the future.” Athletics New Zealand has recognised this by selecting him their Pathway to Podium programme. Cam has already set a new challenge for himself: “I will be competing at the New Zealand School Nationals at the end of the year, and I’m hoping to go past 70 metres.”

Sodden sportsfields restricting play this winter Some of Wellington’s traditional grass sportsfields are being turned into sodden bogs this winter – and sportspeople face the prospect of further match restrictions as Wellington City Council seeks to provide playable sportsfields for the remaining winter season. With about five weeks of winter
sport left, the likelihood is that there would be rationing of matches on grass pitches. “We’ll do everything we can to get games played ... but inevitably there’ll be restrictions if this rain keeps up,” Council’s Parks, Sports and Recreation Manager, Paul Andrews said.
with Jacob Page
Those familiar Warrior woes... The year has been a success across junior, senior and women’s divisions at the Island Bay Football Club (IBUFC) with a number of teams in contention to win their respective leagues with around three weeks remaining. Though the ‘La Bella Italia’ seniors men’s first team cannot win the title, they thrashed Capital Premier league leaders Petone 6-1 at Wakefield Park on Saturday helping their opponents for this week, Karori, into the top spot. That will be the end of the favours according to Island Bay captain Bryn Hickson-Rowden, who said the team would be out to “avenge their first round loss to Karori and end the season on a high note”. In men’s Capital 4 the Island Bay ‘Dreamers’ and ‘FC’ teams are placed first and second respectively, with one sure to gain promotion. The JJ’s sit at the head of Capital Division 5 having not lost a game all year. Meanwhile, after winning the league last year the IBUFC ‘Sprig & Fern’ women’s team have found it a little tougher in the Capital Premier division but have ensured they will
not be relegated, with a win against Tawa last week . The Island Bay ‘Flames ‘ continue to impress and lead women’s Division One round 2 with six wins from six games. In the junior divisions ‘The Shark Academy’ developed the individual skills of the club’s youngsters and all of the 500 registered junior players enjoyed football in the weekends. With clubroom developments underway, an improved and cohesive plan to work with Island Bay Softball at the park over the summer months and talk of partnering with a top Italian club for scholarships and coaching, the future looks exciting for footballers and fans of the club. IBUFC committee member Danny Mulholland said the club would like to extend a thank you to all coaches and parents who volunteered their time. “We also wish to acknowledge the work and commitment of life-member Brenda Martin who sadly passed away this month. “You’ll never walk alone.”
Watching the Warriors is like being a sucker for punishment. If they don’t make the playoff for the sixth consecutive year, where does it leave the Kiwi NRL franchise? Judging by their loss to the North Queensland Cowboys, a swift exit from the season seems the only outcome yet again. Change the coach, change the board structure, change the captain, bring in players, cut players - none of it makes any difference. The Warriors would settle for mediocre, they’re far worse than that, but their inability to be accountable, to accept that the club appears to be rotten to the core means loyal fans are shafted year after year. The club had a chance to get it right. Ivan Cleary coached them to a final - after already being shown the door before those playoffs started. James Maloney was in the halves but he was let go too.
Let go to play multiple State of Origin games and to win premierships with the Sydney Roosters and Cronulla Sharks. The fans deserve better, they deserve an honest effort at all times. They deserve improvement from season to season and they deserve to watch a team that has pride in a jersey. These fast starts and late implosions are pathetic. There appears no heart, desire or willingness to get better. The Warriors should have won a premiership by now and yet it can be easily argued that their biggest barrier to that hasn’t been their opposition on the field but themselves. There appears to be an acceptance of their plight both from the team and their supporters. It’s like an unhappy marriage where both sides are unwilling to admit it’s not working and stay in the routine purely for the familiarity.
