Navy sends fast boat for kids Superfast: The navy's inflatable boats make for an exciting ride. Tour: Lieutenant Commander Angela Barker with children from Paihia, Russell, Opua, Kawakawa and Okaihau schools at Paihia Wharf. A trip for schoolchildren to visit the HMNZS Canter- bury was organised by the Royal New Zealand Navy on February 5. The tour party was met at Paihia Wharf by navy senior communications and media liaison Lieutenant Commander Angela Barker. But with the weather closing and becoming un- predictable the captain of HMNZS Canterbury radio- ed to cancel the visit on the grounds of safety. The navy instead sent two of its super fast rigid hull inflatable boats to pick up the party, don helmets and lifejackets, and tour around the ship moored off Waitangi and HMNZS Manawanui which was moored at Opua. Little musos do well Making music: Kids at Kaikohe East School win $1000 grant. A passion for music has earned Kaikohe East School the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music Grant for 2012. Music teacher Frederika Jarvis runs classes that teach skills including singing, per- cussion, ukulele and notation. She introduces her students to classical music, Maori, folk and jazz. Ms Jarvis says that although the school is low- decile, the kids deserve the best and she is thrilled their efforts have been recognised by ABRMS. I think the examiners liked the variety taught and the instant results -- within 40 minutes the kids achieve a performance in our music class. Ms Jarvis will run additional classes at lunch- time for notation for older kids this year. Music really stimulates the kids. They love being part of an orchestra or a choir. Each year, ABRSM awards a grant of $1000 to a New Zealand school to encourage new musical opportunities for kids. Ms Jarvis says the money will go towards instruments for the kids.
