Home' East and Bays Courier : January 26th 2011 Contents 20 EAST & BAYS COURIER, JANUARY 26, 2011
Top athletes: A team of four
seven-year-old girls came away
with lots of medals after the
Auckland Athletic Champs last
month. Tiana Saelsa, left, Ella
Greenwood, Charlotte Gordon
and Livy Connolly represented
Eastern Bays Athletics and won
gold in the 4 x 100m relay, silver
in the 4 x 200m relay, gold in the
long jump and bronze in the shot
put. Their long jump win was
extra sweet as they were
competing against teams that
had two boys in them. They were
up against 18 teams from
across Auckland. The foursome
was chosen from 27 seven-year-
olds at their club.
On a journey: Xaver Hausner, a Rotary Ambassadorial Scholar from
Germany, and his friend and flatmate Oliver MacIndoe left Cape
Reinga on November 24 on a 3360km journey to Bluff. What started
as a private journey being undertaken by two friends has become
a major fundraising opportunity for one of Rotary's major global
fundraising campaigns, PolioPlus, which aims to eradicate the
disease. The pair stopped in at the Rotary Club of St Johns last
month and were presented with a cheque for $500. Pictured are
Oliver, left, club president Andy McCarrison and Xaver.
Safety message: A different type of safety message is encouraging motorway users to slow down over
Newmarket. A mural created with input from St Michael's School pupils and volunteer art teacher
Teresa Van Den Anker was unveiled last month. Kids created mini collage masterpieces showing work
on the $230 million project after meeting with safety manager Doug Muir. Also featured in the mural
are aeroplane linocut prints created by King's School pupils who used site plans as a background.
Grand unveiling: Sylvia Park School kids unveiled 16 murals they completed last term. The murals
symbolise the things that are significant to the school as a community. Themes include the six
indigenous gardens, healthy living, and the students' love for learning. The children carried out in-depth
studies on artists and attended workshops and presentations at the Auckland Art Gallery in preparation
for the project. They then showed them off with an art tour for parents and other visitors. Pictured here
are Zoe Casadebaig and Tanya Iqbal from room 5 explaining their story to Teresa Kamana. The mural
is called Loving, Learning and Playing and is influenced by artist Dagmar Dyck.
A century celebrated: More than 300 past and present employees of Masport joined in celebrating
the company's 100-year milestone on November 28. Masport, now famous for its lawnmowers, has
a proud history in New Zealand. The company designed the first washing machine, made grenades
during World War Two and was the first to allow women to work on the factory floor. Reuben Porter
set up the company in 1910 and his grandson David Porter attended the celebrations. He is pictured
here cutting the cake with Masport owner Tom Sturgess and general manager Steve Hughes.
A decade in business: Adrian
Barkla celebrated 10 years as
the owner/operator of Remuera
New World with a Christmas
party for his customers on
December 8. Guests danced in
the aisles as they enjoyed the
entertainment which included
Almost Elton, an Elton John
tribute act from entertainer Greg
Ward, pictured here with Mr
Barkla. Nearly 1000 people
enjoyed the hospitality at the
wine and cheese evening.
