Do you support the HVHS students?

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Students shut out of their classrooms because of toxic mould say the problem is a symptom of chronic underfunding for the upkeep of public schools.

Students shut out of their classrooms because of toxic mould say the problem is a symptom of chronic underfunding for the upkeep of public schools.
About 350 Year 12 and 13 pupils at Hutt Valley High School have had to do half their weekly learning at home since Monday after unsafe levels of black mould was discovered in 13 learnings spaces and a dance studio earlier this year.
At a meeting held in the school hall on Thursday night to update the community on how the school and the Ministry of Education planned to respond to the situation, deputy head student Lucy Rodger​ said while she was happy to see progress, the commitment by the ministry to demolish and rebuild C block was “horrendously and frustratingly overdue”.

Mayor re-opens Days Bay Wharf with a 'manu'

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Hutt City Mayor Campbell Barry and National MP Chris Bishop have reopened Days Bay Wharf with a triumphant ‘manu’ into Wellington harbour.
“I’ve been googling how to perfect a manu. I’m pretty sure my splash was higher than Chris’s,” said Barry.

Bishop was gracious in defeat.

Hutt City Mayor Campbell Barry and National MP Chris Bishop have reopened Days Bay Wharf with a triumphant ‘manu’ into Wellington harbour.
“I’ve been googling how to perfect a manu. I’m pretty sure my splash was higher than Chris’s,” said Barry.

Bishop was gracious in defeat.

“Campbell’s was much better than mine,” he said.

More a hundred people gathered in Days Bay for a karakia and speeches to mark the completion of a $4.6 million refurbishment of the 126-year-old wharf on Friday.
If you do not know what a manu is, it is a water bomb.

We Say/You Say: Paperless Trips

Kia ora neighbours,

What do you think about the Snapper card extension to Wellington Train services?

Snapper will be rolled out on Wellington train services from October this year, ending over a century of paper ticket use.

The Johnsonville Line will be the first to trial the paperless system, with a full roll out dependent on the finalisation of commercial negotiations.

This is seen as a step towards Waka Kotahi's planned National Ticketing Solution, an initiative that would see all of New Zealand's public transport centralised on one payment system. It would let commuters pay for their journey through a credit/debit card, similar to London's Oyster Card, in use since 2011.

The decision not to extend a new Wellington Airport bus service to Lower Hutt has been described by proponents as “a slap in the face” to ratepayers.
Wellington has been without a direct bus route to the airport since the Airport Flyer service stopped operating in November. It had been running, through Wellington city and onto Lower Hutt, for 20 years but was axed by the Airport and NZ Bus after it was found to be too costly.

The Greater Wellington Regional Council has committed to including a bus between Wellington city and the airport as part of its Metlink public transport network but the new service would not continue to Lower Hutt.
Hutt South MP Ginny Andersen, Lower Hutt-based National MP Chris Bishop, Lower Hutt mayor Campbell Barry and Hutt City Councillor Deborah Hislop have been calling for the service to return to the Hutt.
