‘Walking backwards into the future’

‘Walking backwards into the future’ — is an expression that asks us to use our experiences to build a positive future. Bring the family to the National Library on Waitangi Day and see the Treaty of Waitangi. Learn about New Zealand's constitutional past to help you imagine the future.

‘Walking backwards into the future’ encourages us to look at where we’ve come from and the journey that still lies ahead. It asks that we use our experiences to build a positive future.

Celebrate Waitangi Day at He Tohu

Waitangi Day at He Tohu is an opportunity for you and your whānau to see the Treaty of Waitangi. Activities will include:
•whānau and bilingual He Tohu tours
• a reading corner with books/ comics and other Treaty resources
• film from Nga Taonga Sound and Vision, and
• a kids’ craft table with Treaty-related activities to help the new generation walk backwards into the future.

He Tohu tours will run every half hour from 9:30am. Tours are 20 mins long. Last tour at 4pm. Bilingual tours at 11am and 2pm.

Storytelling with acclaimed storyteller Apirana Taylor

In between the two bilingual tours of He Tohu, acclaimed storyteller Apirana Taylor will delight audiences of all ages with two story sessions.

Wellington City Libraries will host the two sessions at He Matapihi on the Ground Floor of the Library. Each session will last (around) 40 minutes.
Apirana will tell the following stories:
•11.30am — 'Talking flutes: stories for the young'
• 1.00pm — 'Pūrākau: children’s stories by Apirana Taylor'

See the Treaty of Waitangi

The Treaty of Waitangi is not a single large sheet of paper but a group of nine documents: seven on paper and two on parchment. Together they represent an agreement drawn up between representatives of the British Crown on the one hand and representatives of Māori iwi and hapū on the other.

Te Tiriti o Waitangi is named after the place in the Bay of Islands where it was first signed on 6 February 1840, but it was also signed in a number of other locations around the country in the following months.

See all nine sheets when you visit the He Tohu exhibition. Get a head start and have a look at the Archives New Zealand online exhibition about the Treaty of Waitangi.

Our waterways and all the fish and species that live in them are precious taonga, so we have set out to understand how they are valued and what should be done to provide the future we want for our water.

To me, this Whaitua project is a journey where we can apply our experience and values, and develop a vision that enhances the mana of the whenua, the tangata whenua and the whole community.
We need you to be part of our journey on the Whaitua Project. This is a journey to improve the health and mauri of our waterways, we need to fix our waste and stormwater network. These are big changes, and needs to reflect our communities’ views informed by good evidence and information.

Connect with us to talk about what we can do together. You can reach us at whaitua@gw.govt.nz. To see what we have been doing visit our Facebook page, and to share what you value about our water and your solutions have your say by following the link below.

As a result of our work in Willis Street, we have been working in Abel Smith, Cuba and Vivian Streets to perform maintenance work clearing out wastewater pipes.

The next stage of work in the area involves lifting a manhole and making some repairs, followed by flushing. In order to do this, we need to close a section of the Abel Smith and Cuba St intersections, highlighted on the map below.

This work will begin on Wednesday 5 February, and is expected to take 1 month to complete.

Access along Cuba St through this intersection is still available, however there will be no access into Cuba St from the Taranaki St entrance into Abel Smith St. Vehicles will be detoured down Wigan St onto Taranaki St and Right onto SH1 and Right onto Cuba.

The intersection will be on 24/7 traffic control signals. Please take care when travelling through the area, and follow the traffic signals, speed limits and detours.

Pedestrian access is still available throughout the work. Cyclists will have access past the site via footpath on the closure side, so will be able to dismount and make their way through site. Those that are using the "open" lanes will use the road as normal following the signals.

My name is Molly and I'm a 20 year old student who is going into my final year of my undergraduate degree at Victoria University this year! I have been looking for some babysitting jobs to fill up my not so busy next month before I go back to Uni. I have six years of experience with babysitting, starting out with neighbours and family friends before moving onto families I have found on sites like neighbourly! As it is, I can work days, afternoons, evenings and nights for the next month — I go back to University on the 2nd of March. However I can definitely still work after going back to uni, the occasional afternoon depending on my schedule, but I can definitely work evenings and weekends! I will say I do not have my full license so I wouldn't be able to drive the kids anywhere, but I am familiar with using buses and ubers if necessary! I live about a 5-10 minute walk from Karori Normal School so I can do pick ups if your place is within walking distance! I hope to be of help to any parents out there needing an extra hand! Please contact me on 0212718338 :)
