30 WAIHEKE MARKETPLACE, FEBRUARY 23, 2011 EVENTS REVOLUTION RADIO REBELDE PLASTIC PADDIES DJ MANO PACO FRI 25 FEB ARTWORKS 7PM MUSIC TO CELEBRATE THE LATIN GUERRILLA MEETS IRISH REBELS $10 DOOR SALES Positive family relationship course on offer A free parenting programme designed to develop positive family relationships is on offer for parents of three to 12-year-olds. The Incredible Years Parenting Programme was developed in the United States 30 years ago and was chosen by the Auckland Uni- versity as the best parent management system for New Zealand based on research carried out in 2004 and 2009. It is a government initiat- ive being implemented by the Ministry of Education throughout New Zealand. The ministry aims to have 12,000 parents complete the course by 2014. The pro- gramme is designed to empower parents to make positive changes and manage difficult behaviour. It will be run by trained facilitators Judy Denny and Cynthia Bourne, who are Resource Teachers of Learn- ing and Behaviour. Mrs Denny says: It is based on well established behavioural and social learn- ing principles that describe how behaviours are learned and how they can be changed. One parent found it was beneficial for learning a dif- ferent approach to solving problems in a supportive environment. He says: Everyone was down to earth and supported each other. I learnt that I was not the only parent having difficulties. Ms Denny says parents sometimes have a difficult job learning new strategies and understanding that the psy- chology of behaviour can help to build positive relation- ships. Parents are required to do homework and practise the skills each week. Contact Judy Denny on 950-3959 at Te Huruhi Pri- mary School for information.

Joyous fiddlers on tour Young fiddlers: Fiddlelore will play Artworks Theatre this month. Three young fiddlers from Whangarei will be playing the Artworks Theatre on February 26 at 7.30pm. Fiddlelore play a joyful and energetic mixture of music which crosses sev- eral genres -- from foot- stomping Scottish fiddle tunes and gypsy swing to slow ballads and beauti- ful singing. Fiddlelore is made up of Grace Stevenson, 19, Kathleen Wojcik, 18, and Emily Roughton, 22, who have been playing and performing together for several years. They have assembled a large repertoire of tra- ditional and contempor- ary Scottish tunes, and have branched out into Eastern European gypsy music. They played the Auck- land Folk Festival in 2009 and were invited as guests to play at the 2010 Dunedin Folk Fes- tival. Also playing with Fid- dlelore is Auckland guitarist Mark Mazen- garb (of Beyondsemble). Mazengarb brings the gypsy and bluegrass elements to the group and he has recently returned from touring in the United States and Europe and did a series of concerts in Ireland, Germany and the Czech Republic with Craig Denham and Jon San- ders. Pre-paid tickets cost $20 or $15 concession and are available from Artworks Theatre on 372 9241 or $25 or $20 con- cession on the door.
