Construction is set to be completed in April 2012. Four contractors will receive $4.8 million for 10.5km of pipes and a pumping station. Kumeu Huapai Residents Society chairman Chris Welch welcomes the announcement by the Rodney District Council but says there are mixed opinions. Overall we need a wastewater sys- tem in the area if we are going to move forward with anything, Mr Welch says. But I know some residents don t support development. I m of the opinion that it is coming and we may as well have some control and input, he says. Mr Welch is concerned about how charges will be levied. He says bedrooms or household occupancy may be a better measure than the number of toilets. The residents society was among those who made submissions on the system to the council, which amalgamated into Auckland Council on November 1. Watercare took over all services in the Auckland region this week and is responsible for the project. The system will run under Brighams Creek from the southern outskirts of Kumeu and Riverhead to connect with pipes at Whenuapai. Costs will be recovered over time through develop- ment contributions and connection fees. Deputy mayor Penny Webster says: It will allow development in these areas which will bring significant benefits. Former group manager of water services Jenny Warren says support from residents, businesses and developers is strong. Many have already indicated they will connect to the new service. She expects minimal disruption from the works. The system will replace individual treatment units. It follows a review of other options and community consul- tation. Proposed changes to the district plan identifying areas suitable for resi- dential development were notified in March and have closed. Principals visit Beijing Chinese experience: Kelston Girls College principal Linda Fox, in front of the National Stadium in Beijing, where many of the Olympic events were held in 2008. By CATHERINE HEALY Understanding Chinese culture was the aim of a trip when 16 New Zea- land school principals visited China. Six principals from west Auckland were among those who visited Bei- jing and Shanghai last month. The trip was arranged by the Confucius Institute. Linda Fox of Kelston Girls Col- lege, Greg Roebuck of New Lynn Primary, Peter Kaiser of Tirimoana School, Carol Coddington of St Dominic s College, Maurice Young of Marina View Primary and Mark Shanahan of Waitakere College went on the trip. Mrs Fox says there is an empha- sis on fitness and good health in Chinese schools. Every day begins with t ai chi, done to music. At the start of every period they do eye exercises to music, she says. The students do facial exercises and massage pressure points on the face to strengthen eye muscles and avoid shortsightedness. The relaxed, friendly approach reminded me of our schools, although they do have around 40 students in a class. The quality of the schools and their equipment was very high. They were very tidy and well presented. Mrs Fox says Kelston Girls Col- lege has several Mandarin speaking staff and is hoping to start a course next year that takes in not just the language but Chinese history and culture too. The visit was sponsored by the HANBAN, the Office of Chinese Language Council International in China.
