VOLUNTEER FIRE BRIGADES
ON Tuesday afternoon, brigade members were
called to the scene of a truck crash on Rangiatea

Later that day at 9pm, firefighters were required
to secure large tarpaulins covering exposed roof

“Attendance, retention, achievement all needed
work. Essentially the board wanted me to restart
the heart of the college.
“I was also to improve Maori achievement and
reconnect the college with the community.”
Mr Harris says the school has a wonderful his-
tory and “it’s all embedded in the awesomeness of
our people – in the college and the community”.
He says the college is in great heart which is
evident in the laughter of staff and students and
reflected in the rising roll numbers.
“I truly believe if your heart is essentially good,
caring and inclusive, you have the making of a
“Our kura (school) belongs to this community,
this town, this region.
“We are preparing our kids to be good people,
happy to call our unique community home.
“Along with celebrating our dual cultural herit-
age, that’s my passion – to include and celebrate
every person and every journey. Yes, we may limp
on some days, but we will run on others.”
THE clock is ticking for the Collaborative Stakeholder
Group (CSG) to meet its June deadline to make a recom-
mendation to Waikato Regional Council to achieve the water
quality objectives for both the Waikato and Waipa rivers.
In June, the CSG is due to recommend proposed changes
to the Waikato Regional Healthy Rivers Plan which will
then be available for public consultation until June 2017.
CSG chairman Bill Wasley says the CSG is continuing
to work on recommendations with members in regular
contact with stakeholder groups affected by the Healthy
“Members are on the ground speaking with the sectors
they represent about the practicalities of some of the CSG’s
ideas, as they head towards achieving 100% of the objectives
of better water quality in both rivers in 80 years’ time.
“Sector perspectives are important, but to set the bar
high in terms of outcomes, the CSG also needs to ensure
their thinking is elevated beyond any one individual sector.”
Some of the CSG’s ideas will see a need for more resource
consents for property owners who cannot meet good man-
agement practices, and for intensive land practices in high
Other areas include excluding stock from waterways and
the restriction of discharges to land and water.
The Healthy Rivers strategy comprises three stages – 10%
of the plan implemented and achieved in the first decade,
25% achieved by the end of 2036 and 50% achieved in 2076.
Starting as soon as possible this year the CSG wants
to prepare all stakeholders for the framework of the plan.
The proposed recommendations will first be presented
by the CSG in early June to the six river iwi trustees who
make up the Healthy Rivers Wai Ora committee.
The Waikato Regional Council will then receive the com-
mittee’s recommendation to publicly notify the proposed
plan changes in order for the year long submission process
