Wainuiomata is a good place to live Dear Editor, Countdown spent a lot trying to make shopping easier by making floor space wider and new shelves and all I hear is moaning about the inconvenience. Don’t people realise that this is the only supermarket we have and if you go over the hill to shop you will lose a supermarket, just like we lost the Warehouse, remember? Most of the people went over the hill to Lower Hutt and the Warehouse folded up,

couldn’t afford the rent; you caused it to happen. Be loyal to your own valley and support the shops over here. We don’t want to lose a good thing. I have some good friends working in Countdown. I don’t want them losing their jobs – start being more patriotic towards your own home town. We don’t want Wainuiomata turned into

a shop-less valley, do we? It would cost lots in petrol. Wainuiomata is a good place to live. If we do ever get the Warehouse back, support it by shopping there. The Warehouse and other large firms won’t move over here if you are not going to be loyal to them. Yours sincerely, Peter Wells Wainuiomata

End of year celebrations

Wainuiomata High School students celebrated the end of the year with confetti cannons and balloons ambushing their final assembly of the 2017 school year. The assembly was held on Monday morning with head students leading informal formalities. Teachers were recognised by their

students for the hard work they had put in throughout the year. Monday was also marked with a number of light-hearted pranks seeing the staffroom decorated with toilet paper. Term four started on Monday, October 15, with the year ending no later than Tuesday, December 18. For many of the senior students this week was the last week of school before exams.
