Colourful costumes: Discovery School student Ava Wiszniewska used plenty of colour and originality in their ensembles. The official World of WearableArt show in Wel- lington may have finished weeks ago, but the Dis- covery School version brought the colour and pas- sion to life again last week. The school first performed a WOW show in 2009 -- titled Welcome to Planet WOW -- and returned to the intergalactic theme this year. For much of term three, 440 children planned, designed and constructed their costumes in class, co-ordinator Barri Dullabh said. It s been great to see the way that the whole school has come together to put together fantastic items. Our oldest children have looked after the younger ones, giving them the confidence to perform. He said the students came up with the designs them- selves and learnt skills such as co- operation, compromise and respecting of others ideas. The school s parents, present and past, grand- parents, uncles and aunties all contributed to the costumes. Last Wednesday, Kapi-Mana News had a front row seat as the students strutted their stuff on the catwalk in the hall. A robot assistant guided the audience through the eight categories, including machines , foodilicious , game on and taniwha . While there were plenty of nerves from children as they took to the catwalk, the event went down with only one minor hitch, when the computer-controlled audio system went down. I felt nervous at first but enjoyed it when people started clapping, said year 2 student Lucy Campbell said. William Hall from year 1 remarked, I liked being able to work with my friends . Four performances were held over the two days, attended by about 600 people. Pool opening with a party By KRIS DANDO Water flowing back into Tawa Pool is music to Shaun Pallett s ears. Last Friday the pipes were re-opened and the main pool started to slowly fill. But it was to take a few days, under careful monitoring. It has been more than a year since the pool closed. Firstly, it had its five-yearly maintenance closure in October 2011, which was meant to take six months, including tile repairs, window bay replacement, resurfacing, re-painting and work on pumps and pipes. But in March came notice that the building needed earthquake-strength- ening, costing $818,000. Pool manager Mr Pallett said he and the rest of the team are excited to be back in business. We were only six weeks from re- opening [in April] when the word came through that the extra strengthening was needed. All the staff were billeted out to other Wellington pools, but everyone s looking forward to coming back here. We do have to fill the pools slowly because the pipes have been dormant for a year, but we ll have everything good to go for the new opening date, he said. That date is November 17, which is close to the pool s 40th birthday. To celebrate the day there will be a 1970s disco theme with plenty of family entertainment. A mural outside will be unveiled and there will also be activities in Grasslees Park.
