The city council’s Aspirations of Children and Youth in Waltham said the suburb is the most diverse and Waltham Primary School was identified as the key community asset for the area. Principal Gordon Caddie said his love for the community has only grown over the 14 years he has been working at the school. “I think a school in any area is important. But we have such a diverse community, it’s more important. People know what to expect when they come here so we have a stabilising influence.” Reporter Julia Evans talks to the people that make up the community •Turn to pages 8, 11 & 12 • By Anan Zaki RATEPAYERS HAD to fork out $3079 for three sessions for an independent facilitator to resolve disputes within a community board. Last week, it was revealed that problems within the Halswell- Hornby-Riccarton Community Board led to a closed door meeting with Mayor Lianne Dalziel and chief executive Karleen Edwards. To resolve conflicts, board members requested meetings with an independent facilitator in October last year. The city council would not say who the facilitator was due to privacy reasons and commercial sensitivity. The money came from the elected members’ professional development budget. Board chairman Mike Mora declined to comment on whether the $3079 spend was appropriate or not. But he said the funding is often used for training elected members. •Turn to page 7 HEAT PUMP SALE NOW ON!
