Caretaker has grounds to smile Detailed attention: Waimauku School caretaker Kyle Webber has been acknowledged for great-looking school grounds and surroundings. Thanks a Waimauku School care- taker Kyle Webber's hard work in ensuring the grounds look immaculate has earned him a bunch of flowers from Kumeu's Wild at Heart Flowers and Gifts. The dedication of the school's gardener Cushla McDonnell has also been acknowledged in a nomi- nation from a Waimauku school parent. This recommendation comes from the work Mr Webber did in making our school athletics field look so outstanding for our competition day. The lane markings, mowing of the shotput, discus areas, enough sand in the long jump pit, etc, made for an amazing day. Once again the back field looks finely manicured for the annual Kaipara schools athletics championships making other schools envious of what we have each day to play on. Of note also is that Mr Webber in his own time also did the ath- letics track and field work for Parakai school, to assist them in their athletics day. A lot of the time caretakers go unnoticed for what goes on in schools, but I believe that they deserve some recognition.''
