Three months after its revamp, vandals have had a crack at Porirua Railway Station -- but it could have been worse. Tags have been etched on shiny surfaces and windows in eight differ- ent spots in the station's subway and on the kiosk. However, none of the graffiti has been placed over the station's new photo panels or painted murals, demonstrating the success of the new designs, says Porirua City Council graffiti management co-ordinator Trev Mason. We're pretty disappointed [at the new tags]. But it's the [bus] signs where they have taken a knife to it, and interestingly they haven't touched the art work. We know from international evi- dence that if you put up high quality art work the international trend is that the taggers tend to respect it, and don't tag it. If you have a blank space it's a blank canvas, but now we've filled that space . . . the really rebellious kids are hitting the signs on their way home.'' The tags were likely to be the work of several young people, and they may have been caught on revolving security cameras at the station, Mr Mason said. Any incriminating foot- age would be handed over to Porirua police for further investigation. Various anti-graffiti measures were built into the new station design, but damage from etching was unusual, he said. One option that could be con- sidered in the future was the use of strong clear polycarbonate plastic panels, which could be replaced rela- tively cheaply and easily if needed. The council had received a lot of positive feedback on the new-look station. Images on the website generated more than 500 hits. People go down there to take photos with their families and visitors now. People actually go there just to see the station -- it's starting to get quite a following.'' Well read: Canterbury-based writer Ken Catran talked and read from his latest book with Mana College students as part of author tours for the New Zealand Post Children's Book Awards last week. Listening to Mr Catran read from Smiling Jack, are Marc McClinchie and Majesta Apelu, both year 13. Ken Catran shares his story with young readers By KAROLINE TUCKEY ' It's important not to underestimate young adult fiction. There's a tendency to think of it as children's books, but you try telling any teen they're a child, they'll soon tell you they're not. ' Kiwi author Ken Catran Kiwi author Ken Catran paid a visit to Mana College to talk with students about his books and read from his newest novel last Thursday. The Canterbury writer, who has had 50 books published and won numerous honours, was touring as part of the build-up to the New Zealand Post Children's Book Awards, in which his new young adult fiction tale Smiling Jack is a finalist. A class of year 13 students listened to Mr Catran speak about writing and literature before asking questions about his work. Visiting schools to talk with students and writing for them was a privilege, he said, as it gave an opportunity to mould young minds. It's nice stimulating their ideas. At this stage they're taking on lessons for life and it's nice to be able to pass on your experience and challenges and ideas to them.'' Writing for young adults meant writing for a highly critical and intelligent audience, he said. It's important not to underestimate young adult fiction. There's a tendency to think of it as children's books, but you try telling any teen they're a child, they'll soon tell you they're not,'' he said. Smiling Jack had been well-received, and Mr Catran was pleased to hear from young people that very few had guessed the villain in the dark whodunnit. The kids have a very different view point to mine, and keeping in touch with them about how they think and feel, it's a very valuable lesson about what to write and what not to write.'' It's most important to be ahead of the reader. You've got to structure it very carefully, and it's really trying to outwit your reader, but give them enough clues.'' The award winners will be announced tomorrow night in Auckland.
