The development, expected to open within a year, is part of the $60m redevelopment at the museum. It will include a two-storey underground car park, two levels for collections storage, a new exhibition hall and auditorium events centre. The sponsorship, funded by the company and the Stevenson Family Trust, will support the learning centre during the next five years. The centre will have an interactive hands-on environment for children to learn through play and exploration, said Stevenson Group’s managing director John Rae. For the past 90 years, the East Tamaki-based family-owned group has contributed to many projects in the region, including the Southern Motorway, Auckland’s sewerage system, the Nihotapu Dam and Hunua water main. Doing it for others DECEMBER 15: Plenty of Christmas nibbles, chocolates, cans of fruit, cookies and drinks were piled up at Point View School. The stash was brought by the students at the school and presented to the Salvation Army. Deputy principal Robyn Hibberd said the idea is to help needy families enjoy a happy Christmas. Salvation Army director in teaching Sharyn Saggs said it’s important for children to take a little time to think about others while they’re enjoying the happy occasion. “The food we collected will be distributed within Howick and Pakuranga and it’s great to see local people helping local people. “We thank the school council and all the parents who made contributions to it.” Maths trio shines DECEMBER 8, 2004: Howick College students had outstanding results in the Australian Mathematics Competition. Jon Craig, among those to win a Prudence Award in the intermediate division, received a cash prize. The 15-year-old likes mathematics because it’s challenging and will give him a strong basis to fulfil his dream of becoming a pilot. The school’s competition co-ordinator, Irene Bennet, said Jon scored 132, the sixth best score in New Zealand, meaning he’s in the top 0.003 per cent overall. Schoolmate Peter Bevan won a Prudence Award and a Distinction Award, and Howard Chin received a High Distinction Award. Obedient smokers DECEMBER 15: Bar managers report no problems following the first weekend of new smokefree laws. Cock & Bull Botany bar manager Nick Brew said patrons were obliging and no complaints were received. Despite some resentment over the new law, Howick RSA president Mike O’Leary said its members have also been very cooperative. “We haven’t had to speak to anybody. It’s been amazing. They’ve been very good.” “Their complaints are with the Government, not us. We have always supported them,” said Mr O’Leary. Other bars and restaurants spoken to similarly had few or no problems. Basalt restaurant manager Kylie Ashford said apart from one customer who “thought it funny to keep lighting up inside,” there were no other problems. And, positive comments from non- smokers were coming thick and fast. “People were commenting on how much nicer it was and that they would come out more often now,” said Ms Ashford.
