Communication to the school s parent community says the standards are, fundamentally flawed, confusing and unworkable and our school has no confidence in them . The board of trustees communi- cation says: We will, however, con- tinue to use reliable data to set high expectations for our children which reflects the intent of the New Zea- land curriculum and Te Marautanga. Both principals believe they have the support of their school com- munity but accept the issue is complex. Chairwoman of the Fergusson board of trustees Wendy Eyles says the Minister of Education would say the purpose of the board is to enforce the policy and legislation of the min- istry as dictated by the government of the day. As representatives of our school community we believe we have a more important purpose -- that of advocating for our students to achieve the best possible educational outcome for them.

' Garry Tranter Trentham United Video has helped to change the lives of a poverty- stricken Indian community. The business started working with World Vision in 2008 and donates 50 cents for every customer. Owner Garry Tranter says they sponsor 15 chil- dren for about $600 a month and the community at Ratlam, central India, area will be self-sufficient in the next few months. We don t realise how lucky we are in New Zea- land and wanted to do something to help. I put the idea to our members and it just grew from there. Today, almost 2000 people participate in the project. It just demonstrates what can be done if everyone gives a little bit. They have got their agriculture growing with cotton and chillies they can sell. Education has also received a boost in Ratlam. Between 1993, when World Vision started working in the community, and 2011, school dropout rates decreased by 92 per cent in primary schools and by 72 per cent in secondary schools. Mr Tranter says his store is planning to work with Hutt Valley colleges and TVNZ to send students to India to report on the difference a small contribution can make. The store is also a major sponsor of Billy Graham in Naenae and Youth- town in Upper Hutt. They are mov- ing their World Vision sponsorship to the Dumka district of north-eastern India at the end of the year. Most Indians live on less than $2 a day. Did you pay softball club fees? Police are investigating the alleged misappropriation of registration fees paid to the Rimutaka Softball Club in Sept- ember and October 2010. An advertisement claimed that registrations for the 2010-2011 junior tee ball and softball seasons were being taken. The fees were to be paid to a Fergusson Dr address and the contact name was Shanna. Police would like to urgently speak to anyone who may have paid these registration fees. Contact Senior Constable Flora Nielsen at Upper Hutt police on 527 2300. 3410711AA
