The centre is run by volunteers, and will soon have gaps as parents move on to other opportunities. Centre manager Joan Hay says this is a great opportunity to get involved with a hugely beneficial organisation and to take on fun and rewarding roles. At parents centres we believe that great parents grow great children, and a part of this is obvi- ously focusing on the great parents that are out there and the opportunities that Parents Centre can provide for them. Mana has been a very strong centre, supporting parents in Porirua for over 50 years and run an enormous number of services for local parents. Running the centre requires a wide range of talents, and there are opportunities for volunteers to gain experience and skills in event management, marketing, sponsor- ship, newsletter editing, writing, accounting, administration, project management, and more, she says. Liz Hibberd, who runs childbirth education classes for the Centre, says the work and professionalism of the Centre s volunteers is impressive. The roles are so widely varying and we have had some really innovative people who have used the Centre as a stepping stone from parenthood back into the paid workforce. This has seen our centre go from strength to strength and offer an increasing variety of classes, including positive disci- pline and tantrums, baby sign and fitness classes for new mums. The drivers have been our committee members who want to provide the best advice and support they can to parents in the community. Ms Hay says many people will be familiar with the work the Cen- tre does in the community, but may not realise how much of that is because of volunteers. Our committee members really manage the most incredible roles at the same time as being parents. And the committee has a lot of fun while they are at it, she says. Mana Parents Centre is holding a public meeting to plan the Centre s ongoing management and to welcome new people to their team-- July 19, 7.30 pm, at 13 Marina View, Bridgepoint Complex, Mana.

Pinked out: Paremata School students from left Brooke Giblin, Claudia Graham, Nathaniel Fyfe, Billie Newland and Emma Smith come to grips with some pancake flipping before this Thursday's event. By KRIS DANDO Paremata School students are tickled pink with a breast cancer fundraiser they are holding this week. This Thursday morning, volun- teers dressed in pink will invite hun- dreds of people into their hall in order to raise money for the NZ Breast Cancer Foundation and the school. The third year running they have hosted the event, the main drawcard will be the pancakes on offer for the winter s morning. Last year $8000 was raised for the foundation and nearly $1000 for the school, with more than 700 pancakes served for pupils and their families. Organiser Rachel Callear says it is one of the students favourite events, especially with school holidays just days away. It s the talk of the week; really, really popular. It s a great way to bring our school fam- ilies together and support a good cause. Some are mak- ing the most of the oppor- tunity to bring down their extended family, to really get into the school spirit of this event. Tickets are selling fast, Ms Callear says. They can be bought from the school office. Special pink cupcakes will be sold during the breakfast to further support fundraising efforts. It s unlikely the cupcakes will be eaten immediately afterwards, however, as berries and yoghurt and maple syrup will accompany the pancakes. The event runs from 7am to 8.30am in the hall.
