Which 'summer' are you having?

The Team Reporter from Stuff

It's been a mixed summer so far for New Zealand. Much of the country has seen record breaking temperatures, drought-conditions and scrub fires. But in recent days the West Coast and Southland have experienced heavy rains, flooding, evacuations and closed roads. Our thoughts are with affected.

Our skies have been coloured by smoke blown over from the Australian bushfires, meanwhile Wellingtonians are just stoked if they get to see the sun.

How has your summer been?

To work with the ongoing bus resource and driver shortage, four of the current suspended services will be serviced by ‘additional’ services. There’ll also be 15 more Route 2 services on the road from 10 February.

These services will have the letter ‘a’ at the end of the route number and will be provided by Mana Coach Services so the buses will look different to the usual Metlink buses which operate this route.

These trips won’t be visible on the RTI or our Metlink website timetable until 8 March, so please see the Service Update for the full list of services. www.metlink.org.nz...

Know before you go and keep up with changes as they happen. Visit Metlink.or.nz or call the Metlink team on 0800 801 700.

Greetings to all my Neighbourly friends.

We have this great opportunity to help to establish a Toastmasters International Youth Leadership Programme in Wellington. The programme is suitable for youth between 11 and 17. If you are a parent who wants your kid(s) to have a head start and confidence in public speaking then this is a good opportunity to sign them up. We need at least 12 youth to start a course. The venue and frequency will be determined once we have the numbers. We also need your involvement in making this a possibility for our youth in this leadership programme. This is still in exploratory stage. So please be patient.

Private Message me with your name and email address if you are interested to be involved or signing up your kids, and I will send you the expression of interest form and more information when I get them from the Toastmasters Youth Leadership Advisor. They are eager to form the first Toastmasters Youth Charter in Wellington. The Charter will be adhere to the Toastmasters International established standards and guidelines.

The below link is some information I got from the Toastmasters International website. Look forward to hearing from you. I've already been in touch with the Toastmasters Youth Leadership Advisor for advice.

www.toastmasters.org.nz...

The 6-8 week course will cover:

Over-coming the fear of speaking
Impromptu speaking
Preparing & presenting speeches – structure and presentation skills
Running meetings
They will gain confidence by impromptu speaking and presenting prepared speeches throughout the course

Look forward to hearing from you. Thanks.

UNESCO Memory of the World New Zealand register
The UNESCO Memory of the World New Zealand register was established in 2010 and currently lists 35 inscriptions of significant documentary heritage. Their custodians include heritage institutions and other organisations in our main cities, small towns and private collections. All greatly contribute to the story of our nation’s history and heritage and are significant to the identity of New Zealanders today.

Hear about the 2019 inscriptions on the New Zealand register
In 2019 five new inscriptions were made to the New Zealand register. Come and hear representatives from Auckland Public Library, Ngā Taonga Sound & Vision, Hocken Collections, and the Hocken Collections talk about the items from these collections, why they were selected and why they are important to the history of New Zealand. The five new inscriptions to be discussed are:

• C P Dawes’ early photographs of Hokianga

• meteorological records kept by the Rev Richard Davis from 1839-1851

• WWII NZ Mobile Broadcasting Unit Recordings

•the papers of Dr Muriel Bell, an early medical researcher, and

• the Sir Julius von Haast collection of scientific papers from the late 19th century.

Amongst previous inscriptions are He Whakaputanga, Te Tiriti o Waitangi, the 1893 Women’s Suffrage Petition, the literary papers of Katherine Mansfield, and the Edmund Hillary collection. You can see the full list of the inscriptions on the New Zealand Register

New Zealand Register
UNESCO recognition draws attention to the significance of documentary heritage and the institutions that are its custodians. Inscription on the register raises awareness of the custodian’s institutions and promotes the importance of caring for our documentary heritage.
