Caretaker of 18 years farewelled Caring caretaker: Okaihau Primary School's caretaker Budge Toki at his school's farewell. Family, work colleagues, friends and school children gathered at Okaihau Primary on April 14 to farewell the school's caretaker of 18 years, Budge Toki. Mr Toki was born in Kawakawa and grew up on a 100-acre farm down the Waihou Valley to which he has since returned. He attended Okaihau District High School -- now the college -- which had about 100 chil- dren in those days. He was a dedicated rugby player and was part of the Okaihau District High School team in 1963 which won the Moascar Cup, a competition between secondary schools in New Zealand and still being played for. They were the only district high school to have ever won the cup. Later, Budge played rugby for Ponsonby and was fast heading to being selected as an All Black in 1965, but con- tracted tetanus from a cut to the leg and was hospitalised for months. He is married to Lorraine and has three children, Erena, Rebecca and Leon, and four very special grand- children, Jayden, Joseph, Kereama and Tangiora. Budge said being around the children at Okaihau Pri- mary was the thing he loved most. Being with the children. I just love it. Being helpful to families and staff. I've enjoyed every moment.''

After your appointment you can indulge in some free pampering to celebrate the fact that you have made your health your priority. You will also go in to the draw to win an Apple Nano iPod. Northland District Health Board breast screening health promoter Kelly Scott- Ritchie says the screening programmes are run by women for women. We'll support you through the process and provide transport and childcare where needed. Screening programmes are important and regular mammograms and check-ups do save lives. Don't let your fear be a bar- rier to your health.''
