Limehills celebrates diversity with gala
What: Gypsy Day Cultural Festival
When: May 19
Where: Limehills School

cuisine, culture and dance, with

Contact: Co-ordinator Roelie Hart
on: 027 375 1635 or: 236 4221.
The world has literally come to
Limehills School and what better
way to celebrate than with a
There are 10 ethnicities at the
Central Southland primary school --
European, Maori, Filipino, South
African, Samoan, English, Japan-
ese, Argentine, Dutch and Irish.
And now a new festival aimed at
celebrating cultural diversity will
happen in the run-up to Southland's
annual Gypsy Day on June 1 where
dairy farms are traditionally
bought and sold, sharemilking and
grazing contracts signed off and
where staff shift houses and stock.
The festival, being run at Limehills
School on May 19, will highlight the
diverse range of cultures and people
living in the Central Southland area
and attending the school.
The festival will showcase inter-
national cuisine, culture and dance,
with market stalls and an unusual
twist -- a garage sale. The sale would
allow people the opportunity to
trade in their unwanted household
Another garage sale would run
simultaneously at the Dipton Hall.
Limehills' principal Jim Turrell
said the festival was an opportunity
to celebrate with the school.
''It's a chance to acknowledge the
contribution that farming families,
from a wide range of cultures, have
brought to the school.
''We will see some families move on
and welcome new ones -- this is an
opportunity to celebrate the
occasion as a school.''
Music, entertainment and family
fun are planned, with people from
right around Southland invited to
share in the festivities.
Co-ordinator Roelie Hart said the
garage sale provided a chance for
families to have a clean-out.
''People can either hold their own
stall with crafts, unwanted items or
anything else they wish to sell, or
they can donate any good condition
items for the Limehills School
garage sale stall,'' she said.

Brilliant Idea gets kids on bikes
A dozen bikes were donated to the
Pacific Island Advisory and Cul-
tural Trust last week, bringing
smiles to the faces of the children
who took home a new bike.
The bikes, donated and repaired by
a group of intellectually disabled
people from IHC Southland and Idea
Services Community Recycling
Bikes Project, were only a handful
of the hundreds of bikes that they
distribute to community groups in
the Invercargill area.
The programme had positive out-
comes for both groups, providing
bikes to those who did not have
them and offering a productive
activity for the people involved in
the recycling project.
Vocational services co-ordinator
Debs Strathern said repairing bikes
was a popular activity at the Idea
The project gave the participants
something constructive to do and
the gave them a taste of a normal
They were rewarded by seeing the
smiles on the faces of those who
received the bikes.
Pacific Island Advisory and
Cultural Trust mental health
advocate Key Frost said the bikes
were a ''wonderful resource'', and
provided an opportunity for famil-
ies to go out biking together
and enjoying the outdoors.
''We've got kids who have never had
a bike and now have an opportunity
to have one.''
''To see a child smile about a toy
that is able to get them outside is the
