A group of Wainuiomata volunteer firefighters turned up the heat to take out the inaugural Gisborne Firefighter Combat Challenge. Wainuiomata’s Sunny Grove Social Club, made up of Rose Tupe, Nathan Tupe, Donald Underdown, Troy Simms and Tamati Kaa, took on the challenge, held on November 10, winning the relay event. The crew from Wainuiomata Volunteer Fire Brigade had been working hard year-round, with training paying off as Nathan and Donald also set the second and third fastest times for the individual category.

Firefighters show what they’re made of Continued from page 1. The relay challenge involved 12 teams of firefighters competing against each other, and the clock, in a series of fire-fighting tasks. Firefighters climb a six storey tower carrying a 19 kilogram hose, they then hoist another hose coil up the same height. After climbing back down, a team member then hammers a 70kg steel beam, they then extends a 45mm hose and knocks down a disc. An 80kg life-sized dummy is then dragged a distance of 30 Wainuiomata’s Tamati Kaa, Rose Tupe, Nathan Tupe, Troy Simms metres all while the firefighter and Donald Underdown at the Firefighter Combat Challenge. is wearing full bunker gear PHOTO: SUPPLIED and breathing through an

Tamati has been a firefighter for 10 years and said what they face on the job is much harder than the competition environment. “The hazards, levels of risk, potential for loss of life or property, and the related emotional harm associated with attending operational incidents far outweigh anything we do in a recreational context as part of the Firefighter Combat Challenge,” he says. This is the team’s third year attending the challenge and they intend to return next year and keep bringing the heat to the competition.

Mayor joins as White Ribbon ambassador for Lower Hutt Five Lower Hutt men are standing up to say ‘no’ to family violence by taking the pledge to work towards a violence free community. White Ribbon Day is held on November 25 is the international day when people wear a white ribbon to show that they do not condone violence towards women. It celebrates the many men willing to show leadership and commitment to promoting safe, healthy relationships within families and encourages men to challenge each other on attitudes and behaviour that are abusive. Lower Hutt’s five new ambassadors are Gabriel Tupou, Gregguil Besa, Rajneil Prasad, James Ballantyne and Lower Hutt Mayor Ray Wallace. Ray is in his third term as mayor at Hutt City Council and stresses an open door policy where anyone with family violence issues can ask for support.

Whitaker wins Nutbuster Hard Enduro


inbrief news Cycleway consultation opens Hutt City Council’s plan to change the way the city moves takes another step forward this month, with the next round of community engagement on the new Beltway Cycleway. The new route, which will eventually run from Seaview through the east of the city and connect with the Hutt River Trail in Taita, is part of a $28 million investment by Council and NZTA in a network of walking and cycling routes which will provide many benefits for the city. The community engagement on the Central and Northern Sections started on Monday and people are invited to provide feedback at huttcity.govt.nz/ beltway.

Garden tour fundraising

By Andy McGechan

Wainuiomata’s Jake Whitaker was in sensational form at the weekend, securing his first win at the annual Nutbuster Hard Enduro near Christchurch. The two-day, double-points Mike Pero-sponsored event was also recognised as the fourth and final round of the Alpinestars-sponsored NZ Xtreme Off-road Championship series. Jake’s impressive win also propelled him from ninth to second overall in that multi-race competition. Jake had contested only one of the series’ three rounds in the North Island – missing round one at Whangamata in August and round three at Napier two weeks ago – but he had won round two at

Porirua in September and so, with double points on offer in Canterbury at the weekend, it therefore allowed him to dramatically zoom up the standings. He had skipped the Whangamata event to instead enjoy a belated honeymoon with his wife Jane and missed the Napier event because of a clash of dates with an event he was booked to race in Australia. But there was no stopping the KTM rider at the weekend. Jake edged out home-town hero Hamish Macdonald at Christchurch, the Kiwi international who had dominated at this same event last year. Hamish had just arrived back at home following a successful season of enduro racing in Europe and he was also in hot

form, winning the preliminary enduro-cross prologue event within the Christchurch A&P Show on Friday. Results here set the start order for the enduro proper the following day, with riders set off at 10-second intervals, Hamish first away, followed by Jake and then Cambridge’s Dylan Yearbury. “I lost sight of Hamish almost immediately after the start,” Jake says. “Then I fell back to about fifth place because I was taking too long to warm up and I was riding all over the show. But then I came right, found my pace and started picking off riders ahead of me. “I caught and passed Macdonald on the second lap (of three). He was right behind

me on the final lap and it was crazy stuff, with the two of us swapping the lead several times. But I was in front when it counted,” he adds. Remarkably, after four-anda-half-hours of cut-and-thrust racing, there were less than seven seconds between race winner Jake and runner-up Hamish at the chequered flag. Dylan ended the weekend third overall and this was enough for him to claim the series win outright, although it was the 27-year-old fatherof-one who stole the spotlight on Saturday. Cambridge’s Beau Taylor won the Silver Class at the weekend and for the series, while Whitianga’s James Kerr topped the series’ Bronze Class standings.

inbrief news Two cycling projects funded It’s all good news for cyclists across the region, with two major Hutt Valley cycling projects receiving funding from the Government: the Petone to Ngauranga Cycling Link and Eastern Bays Shared Path. The Petone to Ngauranga Cycling Link has been allocated $43 million in probable funding for construction. It is expected that the outstanding investigation works, including the coastal reclamation designs for the Ngauranga to Petone path, will be finalised within the next six months. While the Eastern Bays Shared Path will also receiving funding of around $7.85 million to be spent on the construction stage in the 2018-2021 period.

Dog owners urged to lead the way to protect native wildlife The Department of Conservation (DOC) is adopting new tactics to protect wildlife by encouraging dog owners to better control their dogs on beaches and coastlines. Dog owners can become wildlife certified after completing a short online quiz. They will then receive an exclusive link to purchase one of the four Lead the Way leads in a collaboration with Traffic Light Bandanas. The colour of the lead highlights their dog’s behaviour. Using the lead lets other dog walkers know whether the pup is friendly (green), cautious (orange) or would prefer to keep to themselves (red). Lead the Way is an initiative which aims to promote responsible dog ownership and reduce negative dog interactions with coastal wildlife.

Principal thankful for community support, positive about 2019 By Dan Whitfield

Janette Melrose is finishing her first year as principal of Wainuiomata High School with a good report card and a positive outlook on 2019. Following from Martin Isberg, who stepped down at the end of the previous year, Janette has seen the school succeed through a teamwork focus that has included students, staff, whanau, and community. The principal says she is incredibly thankful for the love and support she’s had — looking back on the year that was. “This hasn’t felt like a job,” Janette says excitedly. Although she was new at the start of the year, she’s also thankful for how the community got behind seeing

the school’s future become a reality. Janette says what the school’s been able to offer is a pathway for everyone. One of the biggest announcements of the year was the partial rebuild of Wainuiomata High School being upgraded to a major redevelopment when Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and Education Minister Chris Hipkins visited in September. Funding for the project has been doubled from an earlier plan, to $24 million. Other highlights on the calendar included trialling a new curriculum model that will be rolled out for junior students next year, the kapa haka group touring Japan, and students taking part in the Sheilah Winn Shakespeare Festival for

Janette Melrose with the 2018 head students Leon McLeod-Venu, Jasmine Inthavong, Faleona Leala, and Alyssia Cody. PHOTO: SUPPLIED

the first time in several years. “It hasn’t been smooth sailing but I wouldn’t change anything. It’s their [the students] school and we’ve encouraged them through every opportunity,” she says. Janette explains that the

school is now fully staffed, with around 80 staff and teachers on the roll. She says the staff have worked very hard this year and that she’s thankful for everyone who’s helped get the school to where it is.

Emergency response practice on anniversary of Kaikoura quake Councils across the Wellington region are holding a series of training days to practice their emergency response procedures. The fi rst of this series coincided with the second anniversary of the 2016 Kaikoura earthquake and took place at Hutt City Council last Wednesday. In a major event, such as an earthquake, emergency operations centres will be activated by local councils around the region to manage the local response. An emergency centre would be established at the regional level to co-ordinate the regional response. Council employees, with support from other partner

agencies, will assume various roles in these facilities to manage and co-ordinate the region’s response. The Hutt-based exercises involved eighty participants and are part of a comprehensive training programme run by the Wellington Region Emergency Management Office (WREMO), in partnership with councils, to increase their level of preparedness. Jeremy Holmes, regional manager at the Wellington Region Emergency Management Office, says the anniversary of the Kaikoura earthquake is a reminder that we need to be ready. “Our local operations centres and regional co-ordination centre play a vital role in

which enables a co-ordinated response, whether it is at a local, regional or national level,” he says. Geoff Stuar t, Hutt City Council’s divisional manager for regulatory services and emergency management, says one of the practical outcomes of these exercises is that council tests its systems and processes to check for any opportunities for improvement. WREMO’s role is to lead and co-ordinate the effective delivery of Civil Defence and Emergency Management services on behalf of the nine councils across the Wellington region. The practice days are running between November 14 and 28.

an emergency. We need to practise our response to ensure that things run as smoothly as possible when they are needed,” Jeremy says. “We use emergency scenarios during these training exercises to help create an environment that is as close to a real-life event as possible, but one where people can learn and develop. Participants are asked to identify and complete tasks within a short timeframe, to create a sense of urgency. “These exercises are an opportunity for participants to put their emergency management skills into practice and we are always looking for ways we can learn and improve.

Helping hands wanted for Wellington’s most popular park A series of working bees are being held in the Catchpool Valley, near Wellington to spruce up the popular facilities for summer. From November 26 to 28, the Department of Conservation is seeking all hands on deck for some easy maintenance tasks at Wellington’s most popular forest park – Remutaka, near Wainuiomata. DOC recreation ranger Suzi Tuffin says it’s the perfect opportunity for people to get out of the office and lend a hand. The last working bee held on October 27 saw a dozen volunteers from LANSAR, NZ Police, Duke of Edinburgh students, Remutaka Conservation Trust, Hutt International Boys’ School, plus staff from DOC’s national office. Allison Wright, an advisor with DOC’s capability development team, lent a hand and really enjoyed it. “I went along to see what it is like for so many DOC workers on the ground every day. Basically it’s a lot of hard work! But I really enjoyed it and met some great people,” she says. Allison said she got a great

sense of contribution and the tasks were basic – like painting - so she didn’t need any special skills. Suzi Tuffin says the Kapiti Wellington DOC operations team enjoy hosting the community working bees – it means meeting new people, hearing new ideas and getting loads of stuff done. “It’s a massive boost to the facilities and to morale – and great fun to meet new people and achieve lots of work at the same time,” Suzi says. She says they get to achieve well cared for and maintained DOC facilities, that make them proud as DOC Rangers, and are a pleasure to stay in for visitors. The highlights of the last event was a revamp of the Catchpool campsite kitchen, and the hard work of the volunteers. “Everyone was focused on getting the job done. My hardest task was making people stop for a break,” Suzi says. The next session will include painting buildings and floors in the campground and amenity areas, and a variety of different maintenance work around the car parks and education centre.

General Knowledge Quiz

Please send Suzi Tuffin an email at stuffin@doc.govt.nz or call 027 404 9823 if you are keen to come along. The working bee will be held at the Catchpool Campground and education centre from 9am to 4pm on November 26 to November to 30. The last working bee held on October 27 saw a dozen volunteers from LANSAR, NZ Police, Duke of Edinburgh students, Remutaka Conservation Trust, Hutt International Boys’ School, plus staff from DOC’s national office.

Teachers consider latest offer – post strike The future of children’s education hangs in the balance if the crisis in education is not fixed, teachers and principals say. The combined national executives of PPTA, Te Wehengarua, and NZEI Te Riu Roa met in Wellington last week and agreed to jointly campaign for better pay to attract and retain teachers, and have the time to teach. National presidents of the PPTA and NZEI, Jack Boyle and Lynda Stuart say they know that this Government has inherited a teacher shortage and a desperate situation for children with additional learning needs because of the failure to plan and fund education properly and we acknowledge that they are working to try and fix it.

However, what they see now is an unprecedented crisis and it affects tamariki, mokopuna, nieces and nephews. NZEI members just finished a week of strike meetings and rallies and are now in the process of considering the latest offer. The outcome of this will not be known for some weeks. The two executives agreed that should primary teachers and principals reject the current offer, both unions would campaign together to win public and Government support for more investment in teaching and learning in 2019. PPTA members rejected the government’s first offer and are currently running paid union meetings until November 23 to discuss the second offer.

Lynda Stuart says that as a principal, she is supporting colleagues who are desperate for help. “We want teaching to be the creative, rewarding career that it used to be – with

teachers having time to teach, students having the support and individualised learning that they need and principals having the time to lead,” Lynda says.

Nine graduate officers for Wellington Seventy nine new recruits have joined the New Zealand Police. Wing 320 graduated at The Royal New Zealand Police College earlier this month, and of the 79, nine will begin working in the Wellington region. Aged between 18 and 46, the new officers started their training in July, with a group that hails from all over the country. Caleb Towler, who has a trade certificate in Marine Engineering, has already been working with the community for the last several years. Caleb has worked closely with a local Oranga Tamariki home for the last four years, also volunteering for Community Patrols New Zealand for two years. In his work with Oranga Tamariki, Caleb has volunteered his time to mentor teenagers through tough times and worked with them to get back on track and ahead in life.

Caleb, who is going to central district, says joining police was a perfect way to continue to serve the community. “If you are looking at joining the police, get stuck in and volunteer in your community. It is a great stepping stone to joining the police,” he says. Wellington graduate Constable Teichmann Collins was also awarded the Commissioner’s Award for Leadership. Wing 320 was backed by their patron Rob Waddell, a New Zealand Olympian, well known for his career as a rower competing on the world stage. He was present at the graduation along with the family and friends of the new constables. Also present was Police Commissioner Mike Bush and members of the Police Executive and Police Minister Hon Stuart Nash.

Rare native mistletoe blooming on Hutt tracks Rare native mistletoe (Peraxilla tetrapetala), known as beech mistletoe, has been spotted lately on a number of tracks in Kaitoke Regional Park and Pakuratahi Forest. “We are seeing more and more beech mistletoe blooms each year, which we believe is largely due to our possum control work in the area,” says Barrett Pistoll, senior monitoring environmental officer at Greater Wellington Regional Council. “The best way to spot them is to look for a carpet of red petals on the ground. If you do, be sure to look up – they often grow quite high up,” Barrett says. The beech mistletoes are now becoming quite rare in New Zealand’s forests, especially in the North Island. This is mainly due to forest clearance, invasive predators, and the decline in native bird species that act as pollinators and seed-dispersers. “Possums love to browse the fleshy leaves of these species. The presence of mistletoes still in our regional parks is a testament to our ongoing pest control efforts and forest management practices.” Mistletoe is a famously romantic plant. According to Norse mythology, when the god Odin’s son Baldur was prophesied to die, his mother Frigg, the goddess of love, went to all the animals and plants of the natural world and asked them to promise not to harm him. But Frigg neglected to consult with

Mistletoe in the Hutt. Photo by Keith George

the unassuming mistletoe, so the god Loki made an arrow from the plant, which was used to kill Baldur. According to happier versions of the myth, the gods were able to resurrect Baldur from the dead. Frigg declared mistletoe a symbol of love and promised a kiss to all who passed beneath it.

“This is the perfect time of year for a romantic stroll in the bush,” Barrett says. “We encourage people to visit the area and enjoy these rare and beautiful flowers.” Beech mistletoe has been monitored by members of Upper Hutt Forest and Bird Society for more than 10 years.

Some key facts about beech mistletoe: The beech mistletoes in New Zealand are quite unique worldwide as they have a strong mutual relationship with their avian pollinators. Unlike some mistletoe species found in other countries, New Zealand mistletoes usually do not harm their hosts. Beech mistletoes are some of the few plants in the world with ‘explosive’ flowers. To be pollinated, these flowers must be twisted open by native birds such as tui and bellbirds. When

twisted, the flower petals of the ripe buds spring open and spray the bird with pollen. This pollen can then be transferred to the next flower the bird visits, which allows that mistletoe plant to produce seeds. Amazingly, a tiny native bee only one-quarter the size of a red mistletoe bud can also pollinate this plant by twisting open flowers. No other plant in the world is known to have this unusual pollination system!

Wellington still waiting for a transport solution Transport Minister Phil Twyford’s announcement that the Let’s Get Wellington Moving plan will not be ready until next year is yet more disappointing news to commuters, says the Wellington Chamber of Commerce. Wellington Chamber of Commerce chief executive John Milford says Wellington’s transport plan was due out in August, then November, now people have to wait until early 2019. Let’s Get Wellington Moving is a plan that’s been developed and includes four possible transport scenarios to help meet the public’s

The lack of big new projects for Wellington in August’s National Land Transport Programme release already indicates the city is not getting its fair share from the government despite Wellingtonians paying higher petrol taxes, John explains.

“The whole point of Get Welly Moving was to seat everyone around the table to agree on what needs to be built over the next ten years and how to pay for it.” Continual delays could undermine the consensus that has taken time and effort to build up.

electorate. Might I suggest to Trevor Mallard that it is retirement time at the next General Election. Yours sincerely, Alex Connor Woburn

Intermediate touch team wins big Wainuiomata Intermediate have won the Wellington Inter-Intermediate Mixed Touch Tournament. The tournament was held on Wednesday, November 7 and saw the Wainuiomata team play six games throughout the day. All up Wainuiomata scored a staggering 45 tries and only conceded six against them. In the final they played Hutt and won 4-2. This is the third year in a row it has been a Wainuiomata v Hutt final and the students played outstanding touch, says Wainuiomata

Intermediate teacher and coach Isaac Hayes. The stand outs were Regan Gray, Joshua Le’afa-Paki, Trinity Tauaneai and Qwontay Rapata. This is the third Inter-Intermediate trophy Wainuiomata Intermediate has won this year. This is a massive improvement as in the previous eight years the school had only won one. “It’s been a massive year for our school,” Isaac says. Wainuiomata Intermediate was one of 15 teams from around Wellington at the tournament.

Revamped Swindale Shield an exciting challenge for clubs Wellington’s 2019 Swindale Shield draw will be a real test for the union’s 14 Premier clubs as they battle for just seven places in the Jubilee Cup. In a change to previous years, the 2019 Premier club rugby season kicks off on March 23 with home and away matches instead of the traditional Gala Day after a number of fields were unavailable due to upgrades and summer sport commitments. In one significant change, the Upper Hutt Rams play their matches at their ‘second home’, Maoribank Park, while Maidstone Park undergoes an upgrade. Meanwhile, Avalon will hope that their newly built clubrooms will bring new success.

Reigning Swindale Shield champions Northern United will kick off their title defence against Johnsonville at Porirua Park. Some of the main feature matches of round one will be the local derby clashes between Marist St Pats and Poneke while Wainuiomata will battle Hutt Old Boys Marist. The anticipated repeat of the Jubilee Cup final will come in round two when Northern United host Old Boys University at Porirua Park. WRFU rugby board chairman Peter Scott believes the 2019 season had the potential to be one of the toughest ever with the Swindale Shield being played under a new format after club delegates voted to shorten the

Ginny Andersen

first round competition by three weeks. “We underwent a three-month consultation process with clubs to arrive at this format,” he says. “Firstly, it was signalled that the Mitre 10 Cup competition would begin a week earlier going forward and as such we sought club support to continue to have club finals day two weeks prior to this starting. “Further consultation was had with clubs who voted overwhelmingly in favour of shortening the Swindale Shield rather than making any changes in the Jubilee and Hardham Cup rounds.” A success of 2018 that will continue is the bye round during the Jubilee and Hardham Cup competitions.

No luck of the Irish, just a timely lesson for All Blacks It just felt like an All Blacks loss was coming. The 16-9 loss to Ireland in Dublin last Sunday (NZ time) was a tired effort, lacking imagination and flair against a typically spirited Irish team cheered on by home fans. Losses like this aren’t a huge concern and in fact, a clearly jaded All Blacks team would be best served to learn and move on. Brodie Retallick dropped two easy passes he wouldn’t normally, it summed up a tired lack-lustre effort. Kieran Read’s men got suckered in to playing the northern hemisphere style of keeping it tight and kicking for field position. The All Blacks simply weren’t good enough at playing that style and with a penalty count of 8-2 against them, there were red lights flashing in concern

early on. It will probably be the best wake up call the team could have just 12 months out from going for three straight titles. If they can get the hunger back and move the complacency, it will be seen as a bonus. The Irish played much better and deserved the win, their first on home soil. The result will no doubt re-focus the men in black ahead of their three-peat tilt in Japan while Ireland, and all of Northern Hemisphere rugby will take great heart knowing there are cracks in the decade of dominance. The wake-up call many Kiwi fans wanted has come, the timing is perfect because the only result that will be remembered in 12 months is who lifts the William Webb Ellis Trophy.
