Mathswell achievement for year nine students

On the hunt for toothbrushes and toothpaste tubes

Six Wainuiomata High School Year 9 students have competed well at the Mathswell competition finishing third. They were up against 20 other Wellington secondary schools, and the purpose of Mathswell is to promote the study of Mathematics at schools through the use of problem solving. The competition is run by the Wellington Mathematics Association annually, and school-aged students compete in team-based inter-school competition at spe-

TerraCycle is looking New Zealand schools, preschools, not-for-profit clubs and community groups to send their used toothbrushes and toothpaste tubes. The Colgate Better World Recycling Project has launched and will run until October 29. By collecting oral care waste and sending it to us to be recycled, eligible participants will go in the draw to win one of five recycled garden beds (along with a $200 Mitre 10 voucher), or one of ten NZ$1000 cash prizes.

Council notifies zone change to part of former Copeland Street Reserve

Retirement home on the cards A retirement home for Wainuiomata could soon be a reality. The Lower Hutt suburb’s relatively small population and Hutt City Council Mayor Ray Wallace has campaigned for a rest home for more than 30 years. In March 2016, the council rezoned part of Hugh Sinclair Park so it could house a $30 million facility.

The former Copeland Street Reserve in Epuni is set to be rezoned from general recreation to general residential – medium density. The area is council-owned and would be the same zoning classification as neighbouring properties. The Department of Conservation, agreed to revoke the land’s reserve status last year. Hutt City Council’s divisional manager parks and gardens Bruce Hodgins said consultation on the land went back as far as 2012. He said considerable thought had gone into evaluating the effects of rezoning, particularly the impacts on existing local residents and whether there is sufficient recreational land for local residents. Plans for the area include residential development. Council also proposes developing the nearby open land into a park. The changes would include rezoning two properties on Hall Crescent, which would allow the buildings to be removed and

the land to become part of the new park. Under the proposed park development, this area would also accommodate a new children’s playground, enclosed by pool fencing to provide a safe and secure area for young children.

If the rezoning proposals are approved by council following consultation, work could start within two years. A large part of the land was used by Lower Hutt Ladies Bowls Club, which relocated in 2012.

Under the proposed changes, the 5300 square metres of recreational land available to the public would be comparable to the area available for public use when the bowling club had exclusive use of part of the land.
