Living In The Past
Dr Michelle Smith
When I meet a PhD graduate I tend to look for a working class pub for a quick retreat to mix with real people. PhDs think too much. They cannot see the world for the simple-minded place that it really is.

Papakura Team Makes World Top Ten!
Queens’ Cheerleading World Class
When I called in to visit the Queens cheerleading team in their O’Shannessy Street gym, back from their successful world champs in the USA, the mood was a bit serious. A sound system belted out ‘one two three four’ rhythm, coach Andrei Coman was watching closely, and generally there weren’t many smi ...

Recorders and ukeleles? Forget about those old staples of the traditional school music class. Have guitar – will travel. Or trumpet, saxophone, tuba, marimba – you name it, there’s someone at Pukekohe High School who can play any of these instruments. Or several of them. Possibly all.

Alexandra Redoubt Road
Road Of Graves
Alexandra Redoubt Road might well have the more prosaic title of ‘cemetery road’, as half of its length is lined with graveyards.

Papakura Cemetery
When the sun is shining early on a Saturday morning, I have sometimes taken a more extended walk for a flat white coffee up to the Great South Road. The real reason is not so much the coffee but that I can wander through the cemetery on my way back and read a few headstones.

JUST WHY ARE SO MANY OUT OF TOWN BUYERS CHOOSING PAPAKURA TO RESIDE IN?
Could It Be Value?
No debate about that. Certainly their dollar goes further, or to put it into context: ‘more value for the dollars spent’. Could it be the wide choice of new housing developments on offer?

The Answer Lies In The Soil
Going Underground
We walk on it, drive on it and build houses on it. It gets probed, ploughed, and planted. It even gets eaten by toddlers. We’re talking soil here, and without it the only form of farming would be hydroponics. At times in winter it can feel pretty hydroponic anyway when Huey forgets to turn off the ...
