Students Raise Funds for SPCA Wellington

trains on last journey

Cupcakes proved a popular fundraiser at St Benedict’s School. PHOTO: Provided.

The New Entrant to Year 2 students at St Benedict’s School have been learning about caring for animals and the classes have had visits from the SPCA staff, a Dog Control Officer and the Khandallah Vet Clinic. The main focus has been the importance of responsibility when caring for a pet, and ensuring animals

receive the ‘Five Freedoms’ - from hunger and thirst, from discomfort (shelter), from pain, injury and disease (medical care), exercise, and from fear and distress (love and understanding) Fiona Barnett’s Year 2 class then constructed play toys that they could donate, with the decision then made

to hold a cupcake sale. The students, supported by their parents, arrived at school last Friday with a range of beautifully decorated cupcakes to sell to all students and staff. The $562 raised went to the Wellington SPCA to purchase scales to weigh the animals.

Fifty old commuter train carriages are taking a road trip to Wellington’s Southern Landfill over the next few weeks. The carriages, each about 20 metres long and weighing about 25 tonnes, are being delivered by truck to the landfill where they are to be scrapped. Angus Gabara, Metlink’s Manager of Rail Operations, says the organisation has been trying to sell the old carriages for reuse for years. “Initially they were sold to a South African buyer, who took a first lot of 16 units (32 cars) to be reused in service in Africa. “But the deal for the remaining 26 units fell through in late 2017. The units were retendered earlier this year and the tender was won by Macaulay Metals to dispose of them.” The Hungarian-built Ganz Mavag trains ran on Wellington’s commuter lines from the early 1980s until they were replaced in 2016. The bogies and motors and other recoverable scrap will be separated from the units but the car body itself contains asbestos within the anti-drum coating (inside the walls of the carriages).
