School carves new path Home sweet home: A new carving symbolises a fresh direction for students and staff from Tau Te Arohanoa Akoranga Grace Learning Centre, which is based at Helensville Rugby Club By RANI TIMOTI A new macrocarpa carv- ing with its knots and crevices represents a school's journey to recover from a disastrous fire. The large sign wel- comes visitors to Tau Te Arohanoa Akoranga Grace Learning Centre which is based at Helensville Rugby Club. The school has just celebrated its 10th anni- v ersary and is now integrated as a satellite unit of the Christian- based KingsWay School. The piece of wood was donated by school trustee Owen Rogers and carved by supporters Shane Doncaster and John Porter. The kids think it's fantastic. It's a visible sign of us moving for- ward,'' principal Jan Por- ter says. And the rugby club's logo is a phoenix rising from the fire. Last year, a fire forced the school to move out of the club when their classroom was destroyed with much of its equip- ment including com- puters and books. At the same time we were declined inte- gration by the Education Ministry,'' Mrs Porter says. However, the com- munity rallied together by providing support and facilities for their 30 chil- dren to continue study- ing until they could return this year. We've been through a real journey -- windy and rocky,'' Mrs Porter says. I definitely related to that phoenix at the time but it proves people's determination, commit- ment and resolve.'' Mrs Porter says the school operates on bibli- cal principles, promotes te reo values, has in- dividualised learning and promotes partner- ship between families. The school will be having an open day on December 3. All welcome. Call (09) 420-9300. Public can pay tribute on Armistice Day Armistice Day will be paid tribute at Waimau- ku School hall on November 11. The event begins from 10am with a welcome, speeches and items from the students. The Last Post and Remembrance will also be part of the ceremony to honour the 42 residents of the dis- trict who served during World War One. Eight of them died.
