Training for happiness is the theme of this year s Mental Health Awareness Week from Octo- ber 10 to 16. To celebrate mental health awareness week, Northpoint Services Trust will be holding a hikoi, departing at 10am, on October 10 from Kaikohe RSA to the Caltex service sta- tion and back to Northpoint Services Trust. The Mental Health Foundation hopes by taking part, people will find fun ways to stay happy! At 11am as part of the Respect Awards nominated people from the community will be recognised for their help, understanding and gen- erosity. Lunch is at noon for invited guests and all those who have taken part in the hikoi. On October 11 from 7.15am to 9am guests have the oppor- tunity to participate in the community business break- fast at the Mid North Motor Inn where a few of North- point Trust tangata whaiora will talk about their exper- iences and employment. Stalls will be set up outside and inside Northpoint Trust on Tuesday with a jumble sale, art, plants, cake and jam stalls, a sausage sizzle and other delights. For the remainder of that week Northpoint Services Trust will be participating in activities with other agencies and services from around the district. Because of the Rugby World Cup, Northpoint Trust has moved its annual ball to November 5. Mental health awareness week urges people from all walks of life to take action to improve their wellbeing and speak out about the benefits of investing in mental well- ness. Having such a national focus on team sport and the need for people to train hard to reach their goals, there s no better time to get in the game, keep well and reach your potential. The Mental Health Foun- dation hopes Kiwis will catch the bug and start some train- ing of their own. Winning ways to wellbeing are a great place to start -- give, learn, take notice, be active and connect. Plans for Steiner preschool The Bay of Islands Waldorf Edu- cation Trust plans to open its Steiner influenced early child- hood centre in Oromahoe early in 2012, trust chairman Michael Drayton says. Set in a friendly rural farm- like setting, the emphasis will be on children s play as their work, and supporting children s inate sense of wonder. Natural toys and materials, outdoor play in an active garden setting, songs, stories and freshly made meals will all fea- ture in the rhythm of the kinder- garten day. Piwakawaka Playgroup has two playgroups weekly, on Tuesday for three-year-olds and under and parents and on Friday for one to five-year-olds. Influenced by the teachings of Rudolf Steiner s philosophy of child development, and guided by qualified teacher, Olivia Symons. Each day follows the same rhythm. This gives the children security and confidence in know- ing what is happening next, it helps them feel safe to build relationships with each other and explore their surroundings. The children all help with bun making, we sing songs and do finger plays and they freely explore the space and play with natural fibre toys and materials, and some climbing equipment, says Olivia of the Tuesday session . Car boot sale and craft mar- ket every second Sunday of the month is a fundraiser for the kindergarten. This has proved popular with a growing crowd of regulars attending as both stall-holders and customers. As well as the usual second- hand goods and clothing, there are also crafts and toys for sale made by parents involved with the kindergarten. Anyone is welcome to have a stall, at a cost of $10 (from Octo- ber), with proceeds going to Oromahoe Kindergarten. Have you seen Emma the goat? Taken: Emma, a small white pet goat, has gone missing from her home in the Waimate North area. Her owner says at about 5pm on September 12, just after Emma had been checked on, a vehicle was heard -- possibly a small blue car. ''Her collar had been undone and was left still attached to the chain and running wire. She is just under one year old.'' Emma has distinctive nicks halfway down her right ear. Anyone who has seen her can call or text 027-253-4948.
