The Dowse disaster
Recently I have visited the Expressions Gallery in Upper Hutt and the Pataka Museum in Porirua. The Expressions has had several superb exhibitions, most recently the "Where Children Sleep" and the National Ceramics Finalists, and before that exhibitions of The Photography of Lloyd Homer; Rugby and WW1; The Mona Lisa Story; and the NASA Space photographs.

Rostered Duties & Responsibilities:

Please study and plan ahead, especially if you are on duty to write a Bulletin Contribution.  A reminder that it's also your responsibility to find a replacement if you are unable to fulfill your duty.

Police Vetting

John is going to give an explanation about the vetting.  It will be hands-on, as those who are going to be working with youth, need to be vetted and we will then fill in the forms.

NOTE: You will need to bring your Drivers Licence, or your current Passport, as well as a photocopy of it.  To be safe, also bring a copy of a document with your current residential address, e.g. an electricity or rates bill.
