' -- Dallas Williams A NEW community facility at Waima School will bring a better quality of life to the Hokianga, the board of trust- ees says. The students at Waima School started the third term with a cheer when principal Jenny Colebrook shared the news that they had been granted $111,000 from the NZ Lotteries Grant Board. The board has worked alongside students and famil- ies project intended to foster the inclusive nature of the school and create a com- munity facility that can be used by the wider com- munity. Board chairwoman Dallas Williams says: "We know there are many talented artists and sports people in our community, maybe this improved facility will motiv- ate those people. The whole idea of this is to open our facilities up to the community in the hopes that it will promote events and happenings for the families of Waima and the wider Hoki- anga region to enjoy. This is about enhancing the quality of life for our tam- ariki," Ms Williams says. The funding will be used to build a covered outdoor stage alongside a new astroturf multi-sports court, a flexi-use sound system and a secure storage facility. Other components not fun- ded by lotteries but included in this next stage of the proj- ect are a bike trail and land- scape improvements. For more information visit waimakura.com. Ballerina gets award Former Russell resident ballerina Kelsey Stokes has a lot to celebrate. Kelsey competed against 145 entrants at the McDonald s Sydney Eisteddfod and became the 2012 outright winner. Kelsey has won a $15,000 training scholar- ship, $3000 in cash and other prizes. But perhaps most importantly she has been invited on a secondment at the Royal Danish Ballet and has been invited to attend classes/rehearsals with the English National Ballet, The Birmingham Royal Ballet, Royal Ballet school, Australian Ballet, Queensland Ballet, the Houston Ballet and Hous- ton Ballet Academy. The former Northern Dance Academy pupil has been attending fulltime studies for the past six months at the Prudence Bowen Atelier at the Gold Coast in Queensland. Past winners of the Syd- ney Eisteddfod are now dancing professionally. Her former instructor Liz Russell says she is proud of Ms Stokes and her success is testament to how hard she works to achieve her goals and ambitions. Ms Stokes is due to com- pete at the Royal Academy of Dance World Genee competition, which is com- ing to Wellington in December. Building skills for the future Building skills for the future Ready to plant: Rooms 5 and 6 from Kaikohe East School designed and created planter boxes. The planters were part of a project where children used the internet to come up with ideas. Parents then came on board with their carpentry skills and Kaikohe's Bunning's store offered advice on materials and design. A cake stall was also held to help with the costs. The six planters will be used to grow flowers, vegetables and herbs. Teachers Fredi Jarvis and Elaine Shields say they are thrilled with the result and how the children learnt so much through their investigation.
