Photo: AMY JACKMAN By AMY JACKMAN A poem by a 13-year-old Upper Hutt boy has been selected for publication in a collection of more than 50 poems and stories by New Zealand children. Oliver Floodsmith-Ryan, from Hutt International Boys' School, beat more than 4400 others to gain inclusion in Submerged: Magical Tales by Kiwi Kids, being published by New Zealand Post. His poem Memory is about all the different shapes and forms memory comes to us in, from quick passing thoughts to burdens on the mind. Oliver says he was surprised to be one of the winning entries. I heard there were so many entries; I was so surprised mine was one of them. It's pretty nice to have my name in there and they also did the illustrations, so that's quite something to see my poem turn into pictures.'' The notice saying he had won a place in the book was put on Oliver's desk during an English test. Oliver says he was very glad he did not stop his test and look at the notice as he would have lost concentration. Oliver started writing last year and the ideas for his poems and stories come easily to him. He takes a creative writing class at school, where poems are encouraged. I love writing, it's just easy to immerse yourself in,'' he says. I find writing really easy, it just comes naturally. I've done a poetry workshop with Tony Chad and in primary I did a writing workshop with Kate De Goldi. It really helped me improve my style and they gave really good advice.'' Oliver's parents saw an adver- tisement calling for entries for the book on the New Zealand Post website and encouraged him to enter. His dream is to one day publish a novel. New Zealand Post's Nicola Airey says the quality of writing for all the entries was high and it would not be surprising if many of the young writers selec- ted for the book go on to win literary awards.

Maori TV to host debate A live debate involv- ing candidates for Ikaroa-Rawhiti is scheduled for Maori Television's Native Affairs-Kowhiri 11 programme tonight at 9pm. Budgie on the loose Escape artist: Tame budgie Tina has escaped from his, yes his, home and could be in the Heretaunga, Trentham or Silverstream area. He talks and will sit on a person's finger if he is called. If you find him call Ben 976 7463 or Lou 021 809 994. Search for two thieves Sought by police: This woman is sought following a theft at Queen Street Pharmacy. Police are seeking infor- mation on the per- petrators of two uncon- nected thefts that took place in Upper Hutt's central business district last month. On Sunday, October 23, at 11.40am, a female stole toiletries and a jewellery box from Queen Street Pharmacy. On Monday, October 24, at 4.30am, someone wearing a multicoloured hoodie and gloves stole alcohol from The Glass- house on Main St. If you have any infor- mation to help police, contact Senior Constable Flora Nielsen at Upper Hutt police station on 527 2300. Hunt for two men Police are looking for Evan Victor Thame, 35, and Jayden Robert Langi, 24, who have warrants out for their arrest. Thame, who is a European of medium to thin build, is wanted on a parole recall warrant and could be in Otaki or Auck- land. He is not considered dangerous. Langi, who is a Pacific Islander of medium build, is wanted for theft and breaching court release conditions. He is considered by the police to be violent and should not be approached. If you have any information that can help police find either of these people, contact Senior Constable Flora Nielsen at Upper Hutt police station on 527 2300.
