Call 027-374-5351 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to register for the Busk Off or a local stall. Cans success Moviegoers across the country deserve rave reviews after swapping almost 25 percent more cans of food for movie tickets and making last month's Wattie's Cans Film Festival one of the most successful. All cans go to the Salvation Army and with Wattie's matching the donations can for can, the Sallies' food- banks are now more than 45,000 cans better off. Salvation Army spokesman Major Robbie Ross says many people generously brought more cans than they needed to. Welfare comment A Welfare Working Group discussion paper sets out options for the welfare system and is now open for public comment. The options paper can be seen at http:/ /ips.ac.nz/WelfareWorking Group/Index.html and people can provide feedback until December 24. Grants to lift duo to greater heights By JESSIE COLQUHOUN Star students: Te Kura Maori o Nga Tapuwae students Tu-Ira Stower, left, and Stevie Mason have been awarded scholarships. Photo: SHANE WENZLICK Scholarships will be taking two Te Kura Maori o Nga Tapuwae students to great heights next year. The school was approached by Otago University and offered an annual $5000 scholarship for its dux. This year, the recipient is Stevie Mason, who will be studying a bachelor of sci- ence, majoring in computer science. Despite the distance the school has had a long relationship with the univer- sity. Five of its 19 year 13 students will be studying there next year. Stevie says he s stoked with the scholarship. It s really great financially. Coming from a little family in south Auckland, it s really overwhelming. Also travelling next year is fellow year 13 student Tu-Ira Stowers. She s the recipient of the Pacific Blue Heritage Scholarship, which gives her two return tickets to Samoa. The scholarship is offered to a Maori student with either Samoan, Tongan or Rarotongan descent. It aims to help the students connect with their dual heri- tage. Tu-Ira s father is Samoan and she s never had the chance to go there. I ve got lots of family to meet, she says. She plans to travel early next year before studying health science or sport and recreation at AUT Univer- sity.
