Driveskills is free but limited in numbers and gives young people a chance to assess their driving ability and plan to take the next step to becoming a full licence holder. The police youth education officer, Kerry Fenton, and some New Zealand Defence Force driver trainers are involved in the delivery of the programme making the programme a true community initiative,'' she says. Statistics show nearly a quar- ter of crashes in Upper Hutt are caused by people under 25 driv- ing on a restricted licence. The Driveskills programme is being supported by a Youth Road Safety exhibition at the city's secondary schools ahead of the course weekend. Morning and afternoon ses- sions are being run each day but places are limited and aspirant drivers are encouraged to pre- register by going to upperhutt city.com/roadsafety and access- ing the registration form. Hard- copy forms can be picked up from the main council offices. Call Ms Kinnaird on 527 2169. Pupils learn to catch their sneezes A-tissue: Upper Hutt School students Tawananyasha Tizora, 6, Daniel Parker, 5, and Leah Konise, 5, demonstrate how to cover their sneezes, with or without a tissue. Photo: KAROLINE TUCKEY By KAROLINE TUCKEY Lesson aims to cut flu A sneeze tutorial, including sneeze machine and glitter, has been helping to keep students at Upper Hutt School safe from sick- ness this winter. The lesson, being taught in schools throughout the country, uses fun props to teach children sneeze hygiene. Teacher Rachel Lyford recently demonstrated the lesson with the school's year one Little Stars class, spraying a fine mist of water from the sneeze machine -- a spray bottle -- over the group assembled on the mat. This bottle is like if someone sneezes and doesn't cover their nose,'' she told the class. Then the children practised catching their sneezes in a tissue, or a hand or sleeve at a pinch, with hands washed straight away and tissues thrown straight in the bin. Next Ms Lyford demonstrated the spread of germs: glitter was sprinkled over one student's hands, and all 14 children mingled together shaking hands. In less than a minute every student had a trace of glitter. Most weeks the class has at least one absence due to sickness, Ms Lyford said, and bugs spread quickly through classrooms and schools. They only understand on a very basic level,'' she said. They kind of understand what a germ is and the fact that passing it on, someone else is going to get it. So doing stuff like this has been very good to encourage them to remember what to do.'' The lesson pack was provided by tissue company Kleenex, who said research shows more than a quarter of New Zealand sneezes are left uncovered, and encourag- ing better sneeze hygiene can help limit the spread of colds and flu. We know that children are the most prolific spreaders of flu . . . [which] can cause serious respirat- ory complications, especially for children and the elderly,'' Canter- bury virologist Lance Jennings said. Schools which are taking steps to help protect their children from the ravages of flu with respiratory hygiene education are also indirectly keeping children learning. So there's an education up- side, and also a community up- side,'' Dr Jennings said of the project. Church gets messy A non-traditional service called Messy Church will be offered by St Margaret's Presbyterian Church on Friday, June 24. Messy Church began in Brit- ain as a fresh expression of church in response to families wanting their children to know something of the Christian faith and values but not in the con- fines of a traditional service. At St Margaret's in Dunns St, Silverstream, there'll be crafts, family activities, music, mini- church'' and a meal. Under-14s need to be joined by an adult. The event is from 5pm till 6.30pm.
