By JEROME GAVELLE The summer hours ban for dogs on beaches was imposed on Labour Day but thanks to an amend- ment to the Waiheke dog bylaws that's not the case on three beaches. For the first time this year, dog owners can walk their dogs off leash at any time at Anzac Bay beach adjoining Natzka Rd, Owhanake beach, and part of Surfdale beach -- from the point below Mitchell Rd eastwards to the beach area below the high school grounds. But dogs must still be on-leash at all times on Natzka Rd where it runs adjacent to Anzac Bay, and on Korora Rd where it runs adjacent to Owhanake Reserve -- 69 Korora Rd. Dogs are now permit- ted on all the other beaches west of Pie Melon Bay or Rocky Bay only until 10am and after 4pm until Decem- ber 23, and only after 6pm between Christmas Eve and February 1. They will be allowed back on those beaches after 4pm from February 1 until Easter Monday, and at any time after Easter Monday. The amended bylaw also requires dog owners to keep their dogs on a leash on Blackpool beach between and including the Maori cemetery at the bottom of Tui St and Piritahi Marae at the bottom of Tahatai Rd. Animal control officer Pat Burgess says that apart from the amend- ment to the bylaw, there has been no change in the dog regulations on the island for many years and people are familiar with those''. Dogs are prohibited around all of the island's child play areas, ceme- teries and public build- ing, including the li- brary, swimming pool, recreation centre and visitor centre. They're also banned from any area developed or marked out as a sports field but this excludes any spectator area, out- door court, skateboard or BMX ramp. They may not go within 10 metres of any area that is marked out as a playground or that contains children's play equipment. Dogs are also banned from the area to the sea- ward side of Gordons Rd and the beach adjacent to Whakanewha Region- al Park, as well as the esplanade reserve adjac- ent to the Crown fore- shore of Te Matuku Bay. Standing up for teachers Hands up: Children from Waiheke Community Childcare Centre cheered their teachers on in red and pink last Friday in a celebration of learning. Marching to celebrate: Teachers and children from Waiheke Community Childcare Centre, Beginnings and Waiheke Primary School joined a march up Queen St to mark World Teachers Day. By LYNDAL JEFFERIES Teachers and children joined marchers on Queen St on Saturday to celebrate learning and highlight the cost of early childhood funding cuts. With spirits undamp- ened by rain the group from Waiheke Com- munity Childcare Cen- tre, Beginnings and Waiheke Primary School joined in to chant quality teachers, quality learning'' as they walked to Albert Park. There was a sausage sizzle and Wesley Inter- mediate School rock band and Ranui Pri- mary kapa haka group performed. And then there were speeches by New Zea- land Educational Insti- tute and the Post Pri- mary Teachers' Asso- ciation representatives. Institute national secretary Paul Goulter said it was time to stand up and celebrate the importance of teachers''. He called for cuts in early childhood edu- cation to be reversed'' and encouraged people to not accept attacks on the rights of teachers''. The day before, chil- dren from Waiheke Community Childcare Centre put their hands up'' for learning at a photo shoot, dressed in pink and red to honour their teachers. The photo will be sent as a postcard to MPs to protest the cuts. Centre manager Ute Hoffman says the events on Saturday made for a great day''. It was wonderful to see so much support for teachers from all walks of life.''
