Rocky plan for river Five rock groynes are being built on the western side of the Hutt River to protect Bridge Rd and nearby properties. Upper Hutt regional coun- cillor Paul Swain said the groynes will push fast- flowing water away from the bank to reduce erosion.

Playcentre training for parents kicks off By ROSEMARY McLENNAN Totara Park Playcentre is the venue for a 10-week advanced course for Hutt Valley playcentre parents. About 20 parents will spend Wednesday mornings in workshops for the Te Puna course, the second of a six-level programme that trains parents to run playcentre and teaches them extra early childhood devel- opment skills. The first workshop was held last week. All participants have com- pleted the first course which is a prerequisite to the next level. Playcentres, which are run by parents and families and have no paid staff, receive some funding from the Government. The funding requires playcentre parents to com- plete some of the six courses that make up the Playcentre Diploma in Early Childhood and Adult Education. As there is high turnover of parents because children move on to other forms of education, , there is an ongoing need for new parents to undertake playcentre training. The playcentre also believes in family/whanau as the fundamental unit in the community and the most important setting for the nurture and education of children. Hutt Playcentre Associ- ation support person Jo Llewellyn said the courses used to be held in the evening. However, with more primary caregivers in the workforce, they are now held during a playcentre session, she said. Partners are working shifts and very long hours. It may be that parents are single or have no family sup- port to attend such courses should they be run only at night. The playcentre diploma has been designed for parents working alongside their children and learning through reflection on their experiences. These skills that the individual learns also support parenting skills, she says. The content also aims to promote personal develop- ment and developing leader- ship skills for roles within the playcentre movement and the community. Totara Park Playcentre was chosen because many doing the course have chil- dren there. Their children, and those of other participants from as far south as Waterloo, will be looked after during the training. Totara Park Playcentre parent and publicity officer Paula Bloomfield says workshops will include plan- ning and evaluation, celebrating culture -- includ- ing the impact of culture on values, beliefs and of playcentre s commitments to the Treaty of Waitangi -- and basic communication skills including te reo pronunci- ation, and learning waiata. Off and running: Runners take off at the start of the Xterra race in the Maungakotukutuku Valley on the Kapiti side of Akatarawa Forest on Sunday, May 1. The trail-running event attracted the biggest field Wellington has seen for an Xterra event. More than 300 people turned out for the race, split into three dis- tances to cater to different fitness levels. Wellingtonian Brad Lawson won the men's long course event in 1 hour 25 minutes 30 seconds, 10 minutes ahead of Andy Ben- nett and Chris Swallow. The women's event was taken out by Yvette Baker, 25 seconds clear of Fiona Dowling in 1:56:12. Para- paraumu's Gareth Rapley was the best Kapiti finisher in the men's event, coming in fourth, 12 minutes behind the winner. Organiser Mark Thomason said it was a successful day in the valley, which he believed was a perfect venue for the racing. About 70 Kapiti people took part in the event, mak- ing up nearly a quarter of the field, and he hoped for a similar turnout at the next event on May 22 in Rimu- taka Forest Park.
