Onslow has new principal By Glenise Dreaver

Onslow College’s new principal Sheena Millar picked up her role on Monday this week, and says she is “thrilled” to be at a school that looks at things slightly differently. “There’s a tradition of students being involved in all aspects of decision making within the school and I like that approach,” she says, adding that she already sees a willingness amongst the students to have conversations with her, with other staff and with each other. She feels that’s a wonderful quality for a school to have. “I’m impressed by the warm and friendly approach here.” Continued on page 2. Sheena Millar has several pieces of art gifted to her over the years by artist Robin Williams. “I taught her in Year 1 at Te Puke.” PHOTO: Glenise Dreaver

“Look, listen and learn” first job says principal Continued from page 1. So too was the party of 20 Maori students and staff from her former school, Tauranga Girls’ College, who brought Sheena, their senior deputy principal, to Onslow for her welcoming powhiri last term. That was, she says “a beautiful day”. The girls who visited summed Onslow up very simply: “It seems like a nice place.” Sheena’s teaching career began with her two BA majors, English and History and she taught first at Te Puke High School, then Otumoetai College. During that time, she added a master’s degree in Educational Leadership and Management to her qualifications, with her thesis in Maori academic mentoring. Having a bi-cultural and multicultural focus is vital she says. “Learning needs to be culturally responsive as New Zealand develops as a nation. There are many different cultures here and that creates a richness in the school and the community.” Sheena doesn’t know what she will change because her first task is she says, to lis-

ten, look and learn. “From staff parents and students. Any changes won’t be just about me.” Her passion is to ensure that learning is always, “strength-based for students. “It’s hard to learn if that’s not promoted”. Her husband Anthony Burt is remaining in Tauranga while their 17-yearold twin daughters, Brianna and Morgan finish the school year. He will then join the staff of Wellington College as a chemistry teacher while the girls will start in the army and at university respectively. Brianna will be joining the army to train as a medic and Morgan will be attending University of Wellington Victoria. It’s clear Sheena’s not a desk-bound principal. She’s already been up Mount Kaukau “four or five times”, and her husband and daughters came with her during the holidays. “They enjoyed that.” The family will, says Sheena, be buying a home locally. “We want to be part of this vibrant community.”

Bus services boosted says Greater Wellington Metlink spokesperson Alan Seay reports that complaints about Wellington’s new bus service are now consistently down to less than 100 daily. And, he says, as the transition continues the major focus for Metlink is making sure buses arrive on time and have the capacity to meet demand. Local routes boosted at peak

time to support this aim include the Johnsonville, Mairangi, Kelburn, Wellington route (22), and bus route 2, between Karori, Wellington, Hataitai, Kilbirnie, Miramar and Seatoun. In another improvement the new 18e service, MiramarKarori, now gives Karori and Miramar residents direct all-day access to Wellington Hospital

“and it benefits Victoria and Massey students on that route”. That route had, said Alan, completed two weeks of operation with no issues. The new route 3 service between Lyall Bay and Wellington Railway Station also has more buses at peak times, as does its supplementary peak time service 36. That runs

from Wellington and Lyall Bay but using the Hataitai bus tunnel and bypassing Newtown traffic. Work on the hub at the entrance to the Karori tunnel will be completed in a few weeks, but Miramar is due for completion on October 21, and the large shelter at Kilbirnie by October 28.

Preparatory work at former Karori Campus

World Sandwich Day If you visit a Subway shop on November 3, World Sandwich Day, and you buy a sub, salad or wrap, you will get one free for a friend, and Subway will give a meal to someone in need through food rescue charity KiwiHarvest. Each month, KiwiHarvest delivers more than 40,000 kilos of surplus fresh food to over 150 New Zealand charities to help provide hunger relief to those who need it most. For example, an estimated 270,000 children in this country are going to school without breakfast each day.

A spokesperson for Ryman Healthcare reports that they are currently carrying out preparatory work for the new retirement village to be constructed at what was formerly the Karori Campus. The first step, fencing the site to make it safe, has begun. Stage one of the project, stripping out all the buildings on site, begins in three to four weeks and is expected to take 15 weeks. Some asbestos has been found on site which will be removed by a specialist contractor “This is typical for buildings of this age,” says communications adviser Margot Boock. “We are retaining the buildings known as the quad buildings – the Allen Ward Hall, Grey Library Building, Tennant Building, the Waghorn Building and the Octagon. “Stage two involves demolition of the buildings we have approval to remove.” She says they are those deemed to be structurally unsafe and/or not suitable to be repurposed given their specialist institutional design.

We have it on excellent authority (i.e. children who were there) that it was a riveting concert. But we have also been told by another expert, very kindly, that Peter and the Wolf was not composed by Tchaikovsky, but by Sergei Prokofief and written in 1936. Our apologies.

inbrief news Seniors Week celebrations Wellington Seniors’ Week, Te Wiki Kaumātua, is being held between October 15-21. Events include walking netball, Zumba gold, a spring dance, an afternoon movie and tea, and a guided tour of Government House, including refreshments. The tours, events, exhibitions, and activities are available for anyone with a Gold Card. Wellington city councillor Brian Dawson says the events are always highly anticipated, with excellent attendance numbers. The week also allows the council to promote all the services available on their website, including rates rebates, community centres, how to get around town more easily with accessibility maps, mobility parking, and mobility scooter hire, and discounted rates for WCC facilities with the council’s Leisure Card.

Presbyterians say ‘No’ The Presbyterian Church this month decided that it does not support euthanasia and assisted suicide as proposed in the End of Life Choice Bill. The decision was made by more than 300 Presbyterians who represent churches throughout New Zealand as they gathered in Christchurch for the Church’s biennial General Assembly. The Presbyterian Church will be urging Parliament to respect the dignity and value of all human lives, to stringently protect the lives of society’s most vulnerable, and not to pass the End of Life Choice Bill.

Theft disappointment for artist By Glenise Dreaver

Ceramic artist Rebecca Flowerday is “gutted” her ceramic tower, and its accompanying poem, lasered on to three macrocarpa tiles, have gone missing from the entrance to Highbury Fling. She says she installed the piece, called Sky and Bush Tower, on her own initiative after a speedy recovery from a serious illness. “It was put in on January 1 this year, a thank you to the good neighbours of Highbury who supported me through a rough patch and because of the part the Fling played in my recovery. “There is also another piece further in, but I need to check if that is still there... it’s only visible to those who are taking in the walk.” Her work, she says, goes “out into the wild”. “My intention is to put a piece up every year in a Banksyinspired way, but with ceramics. “As I am giving them away, I’m prepared for pieces to get damaged but not whisked away! “The Tower must have been on The Fling a couple of weeks ago and I’m hoping people can shed

more light on exactly when, as my husband was up for a walk then and they were still there. “I’ve just come back from completing a ceramic course in Hungary and noticed them gone when I went for my first walk up there on Tuesday last week.” The Fling, she says, is an awesome environment for walkers and bike riders to enjoy as they pass by. “I wanted to generally pay homage to the area. I have had many walks there.” Sky and Bush Tower is one of a three-piece set, the result of six months of self-directed study finalising her Diploma in Ceramic Art in 2016 says Rebecca. “That was so important in my recovery as well.” The piece breaks down into three ceramic waving interlaced boxes with the coordinates of the area stamped on it and with the accompanying poem which says “Towering pines and squawking birds, Highbury’s our sanctuary, from the City herds”. “That markers it specifically for residents and visitors of Highbury, Wellington,” says the artist.

Farewell from Gerald at the Herald It’s farewell from me after enjoying six weeks of exploring the northern suburbs and getting to know the lie of the land. I must say a huge thank-you to all the people who took part in the our public opinion section, often one of the challenging parts of the paper to put together. They are important and go to the very heart of what a community paper is about,

the people and their voice. Thanks to those people who invited me into their day to tell their stories and those who emailed, phoned and took time out of their day to be interviewed and photographed. I was heartened to discover there is still great appreciation for this fine suburban publication and the engagement from the community in the face of electronic media is

still well and truly alive and kicking. And thanks to the staff at Wellington Suburban Newspapers for being such a great bunch of professionals to work with, a fabulous talented team. For now I go back to my other job, at-home dad and finishing our half-renovated house. Noho ora mai. Gerald Rillstone

Two district health boards, one CEO

Makara residents preparing for global warming issues

Capital & Coast and Hutt Valley DHBs are to appoint a single chief executive to support health service planning and delivery across the Kapiti, Porirua, Wellington and Hutt Valley regions. The two boards say this will allow a wider programme of work focussed on collaboration, with a strong emphasis on keeping communities healthy and well. Joint DHB Chair Andrew Blair says the move is about clarity of vision for both boards: “A unified health service …. that provides better and fairer access to the same excellent healthcare services.”

Residents and others who love Makara Beach have been working on how to live with rising sea levels. Saturday morning was cold and wet, but the Makara Hall was warm and welcoming for anyone wanting to pop in for a scone and to discover what the Makara Project team has been learning over the past four months. The hall was set up with ‘story boards’ with large-scale photos and maps showing the hazard zones, allowing discussion about how to manage the risks. The Wellington City Council

has set up the process which also involves the regional council, iwi and hapu, NIWA, the New Zealand Insurance Council and coastal engineers from Tonkin and Taylor. Christine Grace, the Makara Community Board chair, says there is a lot of uncertainty in the area of sea level rise and climate change. “So coming up with short, medium, and long-term solutions for the beach area means that we can look at a range of options from low cost to higher intervention options across 100 years. “We will start off with something quite simple, like redistributing

the stones on the beach, and look at more engineered options, if and when, they are necessary down the line.” There will be seven workshops, wrapping up in December 2018. The Makara community will then present the final recommendation to Wellington City Council. The options are likely to include environmental triggers for when, and if, they need to be actioned. The actual pathway over the next 100 years will depend on the scale and frequency of events at the beach, and the thresholds the community has for living with more water.

Park access dispute set for resolution The opportunity for local feedback on a proposed Wadestown entrance to Trelissick Park from Oban Street closes at 5pm on Monday October 29. Following the analysis of the results the City Strategy Committee will make its decision on the proposed accessway, which has been the subject of dispute for thirty years. The aim is for a council decision before Christmas 2018. The park comprises a large expanse of hillside, valley, stream and parkland that encompasses Trelissick Park and Ngaio Gorge. Community volunteers hold regular working bees as they work to restore the wilderness area. Groups involved include the Highland Park Progressive Association, Ngaio Crofton Downs Residents’ Association, Royal Forest and Bird Protection

Society, Wellington Botanical Society and the Wadestown Residents’ Association. Wellington City Council provides pest control, a supply of native plants, track and bridge work, erects signage and information boards and strengthen stream banks. The council breakdown of the issues says that the proposal would add an eighth access point to Trelissick Park and also create an additional loop route taking in the Hanover Street entrance, a bush track and a street walk. Six of the current entryways are from Ngaio / Crofton Downs and the other is in Wadestown / Highland Park. The construction and use of the new accessway, at the end of a narrow cul-desac, could however, have an impact on the privacy of the two residences on either side. The residents would also face increased foot

Auto Super Shoppe: A trusted, future-focussed local firm The winners of Onslow College’s Gumboot Trophy. PHOTO: provided

Fierce contest for the Gumboot Trophy

FROM LEFT: Matt Jones, Brad Doughty, Anneka Wilson, William Oliver, Marc Belch.

It was a real milestone when Auto Super Shoppe at 3 Disraeli Street shifted from its original site at 31 Johnsonville Road in October last year. The move is just one sign that this growing firm is looking to the long-term future. It’s a second-generation, well-established and trusted local automotive repair business, founded by director Marc Belch’s parents 26 years ago. Marc served his own automotive apprenticeship there as well. Another sign of the firm’s business vigour is the establishment of a second Super Shoppe branch in Tauranga.

“We do any kinds of car repairs,” says Marc, adding that their two senior mechanics are soon to be joined by a third, while there is also an apprentice. He says the secret of their success is down to a simple formula. “Just honest hard work.” “We’re really proud of this business. We’re just awesome actually. And twenty six years is a great milestone. “When you bring your vehicle to us, you’re not only supporting a local community business, you won’t be disappointed in our service. That’s a promise.” PBA

Four days of early mornings, wet feet and blistery hands – what a way to kick off the school holidays. But Onslow College rowers of all age groups annually hone their rowing skills at their Learn to Row Camp in the better water at Whanganui. This year, t wenty six novices and 22 experienced rowers went, training three times a day. They start with a mix of experience, age and genders in the crews. Later in the season, each rower will compete within their age group and gender, but here everyone rows with everyone. Experienced rowers pass on their knowledge and they are also role models for the culture of contribution. Novices are encouraged to ask questions and help each other improve, while experienced rowers pass on specifics and insights about rowing so that the novices can understand and apply it. Onslow Rowing also invites past student rowers, to support the next

generation. The camp sees the Onslow Rowing community really coming together. Parents r un the camp and ensure everyone gets plenty of food - and no blisters get infected. They can also go out in a coach boat to see their kids rowing close-up. The fun culminates in the Learn to Row Regatta. Rowers are divided into teams of experienced and novice rowers who have to find a line-up that gives them the best chance of winning. T h e G u m b o o t Tr o p hy w i n ner is deter m ined th rough heats, a rep e chage a nd t he A-Fi na l. While the trophy itself is no more than two gumboots screwed onto a board, it has huge value to the winners. The more experienced rowers get very competitive about getting their names onto the layer of blister strapping tape wrapped around one of the gumboots, providing real motivation to help the novices do well.

Bus drivers settle with NZ Bus, strike may be delayed By Jamie Adams

Good news for bus commuters - the Tramways Union has reached a provisional settlement with New Zealand Bus and it’s possible a planned strike will not be going ahead next week. Tramways Union Secretary Kevin O’Sullivan says the settlement will be put to the union members to be ratified on Friday. He says the union negotiators will recommend that the “really good settlement” be accepted. “It gave us pract ica l ly everything that we asked for.” Over the next two years the drivers will get a 4 per cent pay rise and an extra week’s holiday, a shift allowance and a bargaining process agreement. Furthermore, the union is using this settlement as the bottom line for any agreement with the other bus operators. NZ Bus is a small employer, while Tranzit

operates more than 60 percent of Wellington regional bus routes. Tranzit has asked that negotiations be reconvened and Kevin says if their staff agree to attend the union’s stop-work meeting set for Friday it will suspend a planned strike on October 23. “If Tranzit signals that it will meet the baseline just established, the strike will be postponed while negotiations continue. They need to have time to have a think about it.” As of Tuesday afternoon there had not yet been any indication that Tranzit would attend Friday’s meeting. The Tramways Union is seeking the same collective contracts for its Go Wellington drivers that have been ratified for Hutt Valley Flyer drivers. The government is also weighing in. It has reconvened its committee on transport and infrastructure to meet on Thurs- There is still hope that the bus strike set for October 23 may not day, October 25. occur. PHOTO: WSN archives

Mall redevelopment: issues to work through Roy Stansfield, general manager, retail, for the Stride Property Group says it is continuing to work on the proposed redevelopment of the Johnsonville Shopping Centre.

However, he says that while Stride still believes that the redevelopment of the Johnsonville Shopping Centre is an attractive opportunity, there are “several gates” that Stride

and its investors will need to work through before it can confirm that the development will proceed. He adds they recently recruited a new development

manager to solely focus on it. “We are progressing our plans as quickly as practicable, but at this stage cannot be more specific on likely timeframes.”

Thank you morning tea Welcome Tours, a Glensidebased family business, is inviting volunteers in the arts, heritage and conservation sectors to a thank you morning tea on the South Coast on Wednesday October 25. The volunteers will also be treated to a taste of what Welcome Tours offers on their popular Discovery Day Trips. The move comes as the busi-

Sue Russ, d i re ctor of Welcome Tours, says they recognise the valuable role volunteers play in the arts, heritage and conservation sectors. “Their contribution is often enjoyed by Welcome Tours

customers,” she says. “For example, in August a group of Kapiti Coast residents had the pleasure of visiting the historic Halfway House in Glenside.” The excursion for volunteers is free of charge and transport will leave from selected pickup points between Johnsonville and Karori..

Arnav Singh of Broadmeadows decided to dedicate his eleventh birthday this year to fundraising for Salvation Army. While attending his weekly Kung Fu classes at the Johnsonville Salvation Amy hall, he noticed people collecting food from the kitchen. Some of them people had vehicles that looked like a mobile houses, and he thought they might be living in those, and there were children living in them too. Arnav said it made him realise how fortunate he was to have a house to live in. He wondered how families survived Wellington’s winter in their tiny mobile homes. So he decided to run a fundraising event to support Salvation Army’s venture to feed the needy. He discussed many fundraising options with his family, then went off to write a case for an event. That was emailed to his teacher Emily Osborn at West Park primary school, who encouraged him to present his ideas at the school’s management team meeting. From then on, Emily and principal Luis Echegaray encouraged and supported Arnav through the events that followed. The final decision was to have a superhero costume and book character day at school on Arnav’s actual birthday on September 14, with a gold coin donation. He went as a Ninja, and says so many children dressed up there were “too many to count.” They raised $511 which Arnav personally presented to Captain Robert Adams of the Salvation Army, Johnsonville.

Kids’ Kaukau Challenge is Back!

RIGHT: You’re (almost) never too young for the Kaukau challenge. Last year saw this massive effort by five-year-old Finn Connor, running hard with his dad, Shaun. PHOTOS: Supplied

Khandallah School is excited to be hosting this year’s Kids’ Kaukau Challenge again. This year’s community fun run/ walk will be held on Sunday, November 18. All the funds raised will go towards the development of a new adventure playground for the children, made possible because the Harcourts Khandallah Team are the major sponsors. The Kids’ Kaukau Challenge is just that - a challenge for the kids. Committee member Toni Shanks

says that whether they decide to run, walk, skip or dawdle the 4.6km track, everyone feels great at the finish line! She adds that the Khandallah Home and School Committee is looking forward to getting the kids to the top, “so they can be celebrated at the bottom”. Back on the school grounds there will be a food fiesta, family games and activities and prize giving. The Kids’ Kaukau Challenge is open to five to 15-year-olds, with under eights needing to be accom-

panied by a supporting person over the age of 16. All participants will be equipped with timing chip, a race bib and a goodie bag. The registration fee is $20 per child (with a family discount for additional entries). There is no charge for supporting adults. To register please go to www., or for further information you can find us on Facebook, or email . Spaces for this event are limited so get in quick to be part of the fun.

Spruce up your home this long weekend with these great deals from Guthrie Bowron


Brett’s Brief National Party List MP based in Ōhāriu

The Government’s new fuel taxes are placing a heavy financial burden on hard working Kiwis as they pay record prices at the pump.

huge amounts. Every time you put $1 of fuel into your vehicle, 53 cents of that is going straight from your wallet into the Government’s.

National believes the Government should help keep the cost of living down to help New Zealanders get ahead. That’s why we’re calling on the Government to axe its new fuel taxes.

The Deputy Prime Minister has tried to defend fuel taxes saying 100 per cent of the hundreds of millions of dollars of fuel taxes paid by motorists is going to roading works.

The average New Zealand household is now paying $200 a year more in petrol taxes than this time last year. In Auckland that figure is $324. New fuel taxes are a major reason for that.

But that’s simply not true.

Since the election petrol prices have increased 42 cents a litre on average. Costs will only increase as the Government prepares to impose even more tax. While the Government can’t control global prices for fuel, it can control its taxes. And it’s already collecting

Instead the Government cut $5 billion from state highway funding and has instead earmarked that money to fund a tram set in Auckland. The Government needs to realise it can’t keep heaping costs on families. It’s ramping up the cost of living and making it harder for Kiwis to get by. National is committed to making sure New Zealanders get to keep more of what they earn to help them get ahead.

Fashion launch new highlight in illustrious career By Jamie Adams

She worked as a golf caddy in Japan, a tour guide for Japanese tourists on the Great Walks and a police officer, which included some years in Wadestown, where she had also lived as a student. She also acted as a search-and-rescue volunteer, and overcame a rare cancer. Now Fiona Pohlen has begun a new chapter in her storied life with the recent launch of her new local fashion brand Lumen Clothing. Inspired by her work in the police, Fiona has created sophisticated reflective wear to keep people safe and stylish on the streets of the capital. “My aim is to create a city where pedestrians are all visible in low-light conditions, and still look fabulous, wearing sophisticated, locally-made clothing,” she says. Lumen Clothing uses 3M Scotchlite butterfly highlights on its garments, which is the same product used on high-visibility safety workwear.

The illuminated designs were on show in the window of the iconic Wellington store Cranfields as part of the WOW Window Dressing Competition. Originally from Hataitai and now living in Brooklyn, Fiona had been a police officer for 10 years, including as detective constable, when she realised her love of fashion was too strong to maintain as a hobby, especially as she had a unique idea for it. “My passion for safety and risk reduction has stemmed from climbing mountains and working in the Police where risk is constantly assessed, and could be life-saving. “To translate this into clothing design, I realised that using reflective wear in everyday clothing is genius.” Realising fashion design was a viable career, Fiona quit the force after graduating from Massey Design School in 2008. But before she could continue pursuing her dream job she had to deal with the anxiety of cancer diagnosis. “It was sarcoma – a rare soft tissue cancer.” With the support of friends and family

Fiona got through and is now cancer-free. The process to becoming a fulltime fashion designer was still gradual as she had to do other jobs to pay the bills while making her garments for friends. But the hard work has paid off with the Lumen Clothing workroom now established in Te Aro, along with an online shop, Fiona was determined to ensure her products were ethical and sustainable by having them not only made locally, but also sourced locally where possible, as well as avoiding disposal. “It needed to have a positive impact.

Any larger scraps of plastic were put into zero-waste bags.” Her efforts have already been recognised with a Lux Luminance Award in Project Glow Wear 2016, and she says feedback from customers has also been positive. “People are finding it fascinating, as we usually see illuminated jackets on road workers. “We are about reducing the negative impact our clothing brand has on the environment, and if we can keep people safe in low-light conditions whilst doing it; even better.”

We’re delighted to help the school with this project and will be encouraging everyone to participate and enjoy the day.” Planned for Sunday 28 October, the walk will leave from Raroa, go through Onslow College and up to Truscott Avenue and into the picturesque Northern Walkway. Participants will take the skyline ridge along the middle section of the Mt Kaukau trail before descending back down and re-tracing their steps back to Raroa. Mayor Justin Lester has thrown his support behind the school and will start the walk at 10am and join in with his family. Walkers will also be able to get a drink and check out the newly completed Emergency Water Station at the foot of the walk,

Publicity finds teen A meter reader in Wadestown, who had seen a Police media release, was the key to finding a missing teen in Wellington last week. The reader saw Violet Cowan walk on to a driveway in Wadestown, towards an area of bush. Although she was no longer wear-

ing the clothing she was last seen in, the reader was confident it was the girl in the photograph Police had released. Police checked the description of the clothes with her family, who confirmed she owned clothes that matched. This narrowed down the search area substan-


tially and allowed LandSAR and Police to locate the 14-year-old. Wellington District Search and Rescue co-ordinator, Sergeant Ants Harmer, headed the search and says sightings from the public are critical when they are trying to contain a search area and it allows them to cast a much greater net.

Keeping pets safe on Guy Fawkes Day Veterinarian Dr Warren Stroud says there are some top tips to

help reduce the stress that Guy Fawkes fireworks can have on

This pet looks miserable. Keep your pet happy this Guy Fawkes.

your pet: Walk your dog earlier in the evening to tire them out. Keep your pets inside with their bed, favourite toys and the curtains closed. Feed them before the fireworks start, a full stomach should help them relax and make them sleepy. If your pets want to hide, that’s fine. Creating a ‘den’ of favourite blankets and toys to provide a safe place. Turn on music or the TV to disguise the noise. Keep your feline friend inside by keeping their cat door locked. Ensure your pet is m icrochipped, has a collar and ID tag, in case they run from your property when they are scared. For small pets and birds partially cover their cages or enclosures with a blanket. He advises that for pets with severe anxiety please make an appointment with your vet who can prescribe anti-anxiety medication if needed.

OUT&about Katherine Mansfield remembered By Glenise Dreaver

One 100 supporters of the Katherine Mansfield Birthplace Society gathered at the property at 25 Tinakori Road on Sunday to celebrate the writer’s 130th birthday, to announce new plans for the property, and to launch the first translation of a Katherine Mansfield short story, The Doll’s House, into Te Reo Maori. The Governor General Dame Patsy Reddy spoke at the ceremony which marked the occasion. Translator Karena Kelly was recognised for her work on the ground-breaking publication of Te Whare Taare, the very first translation of any of Katherine Mansfield’s work into Te Reo Maori. A linguist and lecturer in Maori Studies at Victoria University, Karena said there were some delicate issues to be considered to ensure that the work tapped into the deeper issues in the text, and in Maori society. She was grateful for assistance from other licensed translators and of Mansfield scholar Professor Jane Stafford at Victoria. Society board member, a distinguished educator and former Deputy Mayor of Wellington Ian McKinnon said that Katherine Mansfield was our most important author. “She’s one of few New Zealand writers who is internationally known”. The property was therefore, “a treasure” which demonstrated her importance, he said.

Governor General Dame Patsy Reddie was welcomed by society Karena Kelly with Te Whare Taare, president Nicola Saker. her translation of The Doll’s House.

Good for the environment! Good for your health! Last week the UN called for “urgent” and “unprecedented” changes to stop global warming before it’s too late. Food is one of the biggest contributors to global warming and one of the easiest things to control on a personal leve. A vegetarian diet has only about half the carbon emissions of a meat-heavy diet, and a vegan diet even less. When those diets also offer so many health benefits, it’s a no-brainer to eat less animal products.

Tap water in

The NZ Vegetarian Society can help – whether you want to reduce your meat consumption, cut it out altogether or go vegan, there is support all the way. The Wellington Branch offers free one-onone mentoring, as well as social events. New members get an information-packet booklet covering all aspects of a plantbased lifestyle. Join at www.vegetarian. or email for a mentor.

Asthma NZ – Call us today, we’re here to help Many of our top sports achievers have asthma. Asthma should not be a factor in holding you back from reaching your goals in life. When Scott Donaldson left Coffs Harbour to kayak across the Tasman Sea he was well prepared for every eventuality, including Asthma. Being an asthmatic Scott has never allowed this to stop him from pursuing his sporting goals. Ironically not long

after Scott arrived at Ngamotu Beach in New Plymouth he had to take his son Zac to hospital after an asthma attack. For Scott this was a reminder as to one of the reasons he undertook the challenge – to raise funds for Asthma. Congratulations Scott, we are incredibly proud to be part of your journey.

Jonny Green of Health 2000, in Johnsonville Mall, says the new Waters Bio 500 water filter offers water “as nature intended”. He says the newly-available 5-litre capacity filter system filters out undesirable minerals which can be present in tap water including chlorine, zinc, cadmium, lead, aluminium, fluoride and nitrates, but provides water that penetrates bodily cells more easily. The north-south pole magnets in the system are the secret says Jonny, creating alkaline, ionised, magnetised and therefore better energised water. Magnetising the water using northsouth pole magnets at the base of the filter means it is restructured into smaller denser structures, creating what is called reduced water “and that


makes for much superior hydration,” he says. Bio 500 is also “incredibly” cost-effective, with a filter lifespan of 12,000 litres – in effect a semi-permanent solution, even with usage of eight litres a day. “It’s also a low maintenance system and it doesn’t have any fancy installation requirements,” he adds. “I’m proud to be associated with a firm that has an international track history of excellence in the field of water purification. Over 30 years of it,” Jonny says. “And this brings us into a whole new state-of-the-art era of water purification.”  Ph: 461 6047

Johnsonville Women gear up for season Female cricket registration is now open and again the Johnsonville Cricket Club is always looking for more players to fill social 20/20 teams in both male and female levels. The club enjoyed tremendous success last season with the performances of our female players-the Premier Women’s team won both the Joy Lamason 40-over competition and the Maureen Peters 20/20 plate final and our Premier Girls team was unbeaten throughout the season collecting all 3 titles in cricket available to them. As part of NZ Cricket’s gearing up of cricket for females the JCC is very keen to encourage more females at whatever age group to play the game. The JCC is the only club in Wellington that has traditionally fielded teams in all grades available to female players and it is something the club is keen to maintain so if anyone at all is interested in registering for any level of cricket please email the club on info@jcc. or ring club Manager Rick Mudgway on 021 1830 764 for further information.

Worlds beckon for local ‘Kiwis for the Cup’ karate champions The 2018 TAB ‘Kiwi’s for the Cup’ guide includes Cambridge trainer Murray Baker and Waikato ex-pat Jockey James McDonald, as well as Sydney-based trainer Ch r is Wa ller, or iginally from Foxton. They have won nearly 170 of Australasia’s most prestigious races between them - but never the Melbourne Cup. Chris is the genius behind the world’s greatest racehorse, Winx. He has won three Cox Plates and eight times acknowledged as the most successful trainer in New

South Wales . Murray’s 48 Australasian Group 1 wins include a Caulfield Cup with Mongolian Khan in 2015, and a Melbourne Cup second with The Phantom in 1989. At just 19, James came within a whisker of the Cup on board Fiorente in 2012. Now 26, he has over-34 of Australasia’s greatest races under his belt. T he th ree K iwis sta r t in the Caulfield Cup on Saturday October 20, the Cox Plate on Saturday October 27 and the Melbourne Cup on Tuesday November 6.

Two New Zealand representatives from the Marist Kyokushin Karate Club in Johnsonville are preparing for a big challenge at world open-grade level in China in November. Left, Neiko Love (15) with Jonty Nguon (13). PHOTO supplied.

Members of the Marist Kyokushin Karate Club in Johnsonville are celebrating the success of two of their students, who have been selected to represent New Zealand at the IKO International Karate Organisations’s tournament in Shanghai next month. Neiko Love, 15, of Tawa and Jonty Nguon, 13, of Newlands, are both brown belts who are respectively competing in the open-grade heavy and middleweight divisions of the Matsushima World Cup. They will be New Zealand’s only fighters competing in the cup, a “full contact” tournament. Both are brown belts who are competing in the open-grade heavy and middle weight

divisions respectively. Each boy has trained for several years and both have, in the past, represented the club at national tournaments and in Australia. On top of their success, Jonty’s Father Daravut Nguon, a second dan black belt, has been appointed the national coach And Peter Jennings of Johnsonville, a fifth dan and the club’s chief instructor, who is also New Zealand branch chief, will be officiating as one of two referees appointed from New Zealand. Third dan Bev-Anne Jennings, Peter’s wife, will be a judge alongside an Auckland representative.

For the past year, I’ve been forced to look at a six-storey mural of former Kiwi coach David Kidwell. After the Kiwis’ 26-24 win over Australia on Saturday night, they can paint over that any time they like. Kidwell, a Cantabrian, and Kiwis coach at last year’s abysmal Rugby League World Cup, was an abject failure in the role, as the Kiwis were bundled out to lowly Fiji on home soil. New Zealand rugby league supporters are the most loyal fan base in the country. Forever loyal and forever let down. Saturday’s win, the Kiwis’ first in more than three-and-a-half years, would have won many fans back after their shock exit on home soil last year. New coach Michael Maguire and rookie captain Dallin Watene-Zelezniak pulled off an epic upset at Mt Smart Stadium and probably helped revive the international form of the game in this country. Let’s not mince words here, international league is the third most

important level of the game behind the NRL and State of Origin. This Kiwis’ performance should be the blue-print going forward. Historically, the typical Kiwis effort was punctuated by an emotional national anthem, stirring haka, physical first 30 minutes before they rolled over in the final 50 minutes to lose by 30 points at the final whistle. The 2018 version saw them soak up pressure throughout, complete their sets and pile pressure on the highly-fancied Australians who wilted under the scrutiny. Only two late tries from the men in green and gold made the final moments interesting as the Kiwis had shown their superiority throughout much of the match. These early signs are promising. Like all things about top flight league in New Zealand, whether it be Warriors or Kiwis, consistency is key. Is this a flash in the pan performance or is this the rebuild after the Kidwell disaster? Only time will tell.
