Firefighters were called to the address at about 4.30am on November 27 where they discovered the small building well ablaze. ''It was brought under control fairly quickly but there's not much left of it,'' Fire Service northern communications centre shift manager Jaron Phillips says. Principal Rae Parkin did not return calls from the Central Leader regarding the fire. Pottery fair A family pottery fair is set to entertain this Sunday in Onehunga. The Auckland Studio Potters event will include sculptural pieces for sale, a paint-a-pot stall and the chance to mould pieces on a pottery wheel. A clay catapult is also a favourite with children and people can try raku firing their pottery. Food stalls, face painting and music will add to the Christmas cheer. The fair will run from 10am to 3pm at 96 Captain Springs Rd, Onehunga. See www. ceramics.co.nz for details. Disability day out To celebrate International Disability Day today, Iris is hosting an open day with guest mayor Len Brown. There will be entertainment with a barbecue and refreshments provided from 2pm to 4pm. Iris Rehabilitation is at 13 Coyle St, Pt Chevalier. It works with people affected by disability or injury to achieve their personal goals. Students wipe out tagging Sportzlife project: A community project run by the Salvation Army has led a group of year 8 Waikowhai Intermediate School pupils to paint out all the tagging on their local shop fronts. Photo: JASON OXENHAM By CARLY TAWHIAO MT ROSKILL boys are reclaiming their local shops as a sign of respect and sup- port for their community. Waikowhai Intermediate School pupils Nick Ngarua, Fatai Lafu, Loto Ahea, Rich- ard Tupou, Paea Mau, Uele Tokelau, Francis Save, Daw- son Davis-Hunt, Shade Riwhi and Nicco Latu teamed up with the Auckland City Coun- cil to eradicate the tagging at the shops across the road from their school. For the last two terms, the year 8 pupils have been donning their overalls to give the Richardson Rd shops a uniform coat of paint and their efforts have resulted in a communal sense of pride. It's been cool. We get to hang out and learn new stuff about taking care of the com- munity,'' says Fatai. The project is part of a leadership programme called Sportzlife which is run by the Salvation Army Mission Team. For one and a half hours every week, Michael Smith, a community youth worker based in the south Roskill area, mentors a group of boys selected by the school because they display leadership potential. The aim is to give students the opportunity to strengthen their leadership talent through experiential learning,'' Mr Smith says. This year the boys looked into how they could start to turn the tide of tagging in our community. They brain- stormed and researched and decided they wanted to give some respect back to the local shopping block which is con- stantly getting tagged. They talked with the landlord and council staff who could help them with resources and then got stuck in.'' Mr Smith says the project is ongoing, to clean the tag- ging off and get the shops looking great so they can be proud of them. Tagging used to be just part of the landscape. I now often see the boys keeping an eye out before and after school for possible taggers.'' This is the second year Waikowhai Intermediate has been involved in Sportzlife, and it plans to continue run- ning the programme next year.
