A recent professional development event at the Carterton Events Centre gave 60 Wairarapa teachers and literacy leaders an opportunity to learn more about language development in children. The event was sponsored by The Remutaka Resource Teacher Learning Behaviour service, the Rotary Clubs of Carterton, South Wairarapa, Masterton, and South Masterton, and a grant from the Rotary District Foundation Charity, Child speech therapist Christian Wright gave practical classroom advice about how to help children struggling with language. He said that all the children in the classroom would benefit from teachers who were aware of the obstacles some children face with reading and listening comprehension.

GWRC wants feedback

Greater Wellington Regional Council [GWRC] is seeking feedback for its annual plan but will not be conducting a formal consultation. The council said in an advisory that there had been no significant or material changes to what it planned for in year three of its 2021 to 2031 long-term plan [LTP]. It also said it wanted to inform the public of changes from year three of the 2021 to 2031 LTP. The council planned to defer the purchase of more buses because of a decrease in use. It would, however, investigate developing a bus depot in Wellington, which was not set out in the LTP. GWRC also wanted to remove the performance measure in its long-term plan for mana whenua and Maori preparedness for responding to civil defence and other emergencies.

Taylor made

life member

Wairarapa cricket legend Ross Taylor has been awarded honorary life membership to the Marylebone Cricket Club [MCC]. Central Districts Cricket Association [CDCA] said Taylor was one of two New Zealanders and 17 cricketers recently awarded the honour. Taylor’s connection with the MCC at Lord’s Cricket Ground dates back to when he was an 18-year-old in the MCC Young Players programme, which was extended to talented young players from around the world, CDCA said. Taylor retired from international cricket last year.
